Glenn: Thank you for the reply. Now that I know you are making your own, I will dig through my Wolff spring sets and see if there is one that is the correct diameter. If that does not work, I will contact you.

Besides the crud that had built up, was a spring changeout the only thing needed to reduce the trigger pull? Also, from what I read, you did not have sear over rides when closing the breech block.

I was able to acquire a MKII this year








and these are targets from the first match after lengthening the trigger pull to 14 1/4". I added a Freeland buttpad and a 1/2" spacer. The original trigger pull was 13 1/2" which is shorter than my normal smallbore prone rifles:

I removed the Unertl and installed a Redfield 3200.



I removed this sight off and reinstalled the PH25C I have. I did not know the PH25C was an 1/8" MOA sight and as I rotated the knobs, nothing seemed to be happening, so I took the sight off! Only later did I find the PH25C was not 1/4" MOA clicks!








A real limitation of this rifle is the heavy trigger pull. This is more or less fine when using irons but not when using a scope, and I would like to drop the trigger pull even more.
