TAKE IT FOR WHAT IT IS WORTH.... joe

(*SOME OF THE POST ARE OUT OF ORDER*)

I have a Winchester 52D trigger marked "Kenyon" with some serial number markings. The pivot pin relocation corresponds with the post/picture noted above. The trigger breaks at 6oz.

It still has the original wire loop and works beautifully! I get to take it to the range this weekend once I get the scope mounted. I'll like also be ordering irons as well thanks to the great wealth of information I found in another thread. This place is awesome!

You mentioned this is the Lawyer Pin but what do you do with it?? Just remove it and forget it? What is the purpose if this pin? Thanks for any help you can give me on this modification..

The adjustment screw is turned out, CCW, to lighten the pull weight. The screw has a collar on it and when it contacts the "lawyer pin," it won't turn out any further. Drive the pin out and you'll be able to decrease pull weight further. As I understand it the pin is there to meet some kind of pull weight limit for a certain type of competition.

thanks Riverrider for the info. I removed the pin and lubed all the contact points I could and got the pull down to 1.5 lbs. Thanks again

On the 52A's, can these be retrofitted with either a later (B or later) trigger or an aftermarket like a Canjar so I can use a side safety like the B's and eliminate the wing safety?

The B trigger is too different and requires additional machining of the receiver. Ditto for the C and later, they're ENTIRELY different. There may be an aftermarket for the pre B's, but I don't know for sure. I believe you're stuck with the wing safety, I know I am......

.030 to .035 Piano wire

I picked up this wire at a local hardware store. Tru-Value or Ace will have it. I've used Aluminum as well a steel, and can't tell the difference in operation. Aluminum wire will be much easier to work with.

I play electric guitar, and know that the string gauges can be had in almost any thickness..there is such variety for playing styles, and also know individual strings can be had for those who custom string their guitars, rather than buying them in sets...

...this is just one example...

Need to lighten the trigger on my Miroku 52 Sporter with the Micro-Motion trigger-group. Have removed the roll-pin and backed out the screw, but still at ~4# and am on the last thread on the screw.
Can I simply take out the screw and grind off 0.1" and start again?
Is the only part above the screw the one spring?
Thanks.

If it were mine, I would replace the spring with a lighter one. Might be a bit tough to find one, but it doesn't have to be a "gun" spring. I replaced a trigger spring in one of my rifles with a trimmed one from a click-type pen in order to get the pull weight down to 2lbs. Look at the spring you have and then think about where you might find similar sized springs. I save springs from any small mechanical device that is going to be discarded.....
