I don't know about the bedding, but I agree with your other assessments (for what that's worth).

It's great to have choices.

I can't speak to the RAR trigger but I have a Savage FV-SR and the accu-trigger will not adjust as low as Savage advertises. I do have a RPR and it's trigger is superior to the Savage's by quite a bit.

I've not tried to adjust the FV-SR trigger, it "feels" really good as is.

I'm going to try and get to a few more semi-local stores and handle as many rifles as I can, see how the RAR triggers compare.

I do own and shoot both RART and MK1FVT, in somewhat modified condition, some bedding, Provarmint stocks, and trigger work I did at home.
I thought the RAR trigger better in every aspect over the MK1FVT. With just some cleaning and polishing and a pen spring in the RAR trigger it breaks clean, crisp at 1.5 pounds. The Savage needed shimming to lessen the creep, springs for trigger pull and removal of the Accu-trigger blade to use a shoe to achieve a similar trigger feel. Yes I did thorough testing for safe operations on both. Both passed without trouble.

Never understood the complaints over the RAR trigger. KM

Do you have a link to accomplish this?

Thanks.

My RAR's are tight so shims were not used but polishing and softening part edges did help. KM

The upper video is what I did. Not that the trigger was bad, I like it lighter since I'm on a bench shooting ground squirrels.

I’ve done the “pen spring” trick but I find the stock at the wrist too flexible. Anybody have recommendations for a replacement stock?

Boyd's has several models; AT-ONE, Varment, Hunter. MDT has their LSS-22 chassis model. I have my RAR installed in the MDT chassis and love it.

If you make your own springs from a 10-22 cut and stoned bolt spring the result is better. Smoother than a pen or most after market springs. And it will set to 1.5 if needed. I set my three at 2.5. This is a smooth trigger that needs a little help with some propper lube and spring.

I had a RPRR, what bugged me about the trigger is that the adjustment plug/screw had no stop to it so you could screw it all the way in and it would fall intothe trigger assembly. When inasked Ruger about this , they told me to use a little locktite to hold it in place. I found that cheezy!

I believe my RAR's had Locktite from Ruger. I use it on other screws why not the trigger adjustment?

I purposely did not mention my trigger work on the Savage FVT, Because it was more with tweaking the housing and shimming the sear for angles and engagement. It's my shooter and I take responsibility for my work and testing afterward. For what it's worth it was mostly common sense and simple to do with hand tools. KM

Me, a bottle of locktite , and a trigger assembly. A recipe for disaster

Its not a screw its a threaded plug, if it had a head , or other stop like the savage, or a nut i would like it better.
