Rifle Basix trigger



Log in to see fewer ads
Just wanted to put this out for those who own one of these fine little rifles and is looking for a better trigger than the factory unit.
I looked into getting the factory trigger worked over, replacement springs/sear, Jard trigger unit, and the Rifle Basix. Settled upon the latter due to reviews I found online and their reputation, and I couldn't be more pleased.
Installation was a breeze, taking a total of 20 minutes. Can easily be done in 10 but I took my time fine tuning the trigger pull and safety screw. Once reassembled I was astonished at the difference it made. The new trigger is smooth, crisp, breaks clean, and is set at 1 pound. By way of comparison the factory trigger was gritty, sloppy, and took a hair over 9 pounds pull to make it go boom.
Absolutely LOVE it!!

5 shot group (best of the day but once I got used to the light pull most groups were almost identical)


She's a keeper

A trigger with a 1lb. break is way too light to be safe IMO.

For field use, and probably for action competition, but it's a little high for precision benchrest. 4-8 oz is common.

It is indeed the factory barrel.

Brownelk,
As far as pull weight, to each their own. I've tried slamming the bolt home, bumping the butt of the stock on the ground, partial safety engagement, and 250 rounds fired today without incident.
You'd definitely feel uneasy being around when we shoot our Benchrest guns. Triggers average 8 ounces on those.

Thanks for the report, I just might have to try one of these out. I tend to be all thumbs when working with mechanical stuff tho.

I would agree if it had a crappy safety like many other rifles do.
I am getting remarkable accuracy out of my factory barrel after shortening the chamber about .030". I have read about Ruger after a short run, cutting the chamber deeper so as the CCI Stinger would extract unfired. Sure enough, my rifle will not extract a unfired Stinger now, had to knock it out with a rod. That left the rifle in a dangerous condition for most folks to deal with. I never found Stingers to shoot well anyway, or other like ammo.

Thanks for the input folks!
All the tinkering I did trying to get the best accuracy I could out of it has really paid off. A little over 3000 rounds of various ammo, bedding, free floating, pressure pad, stock change, bolt shim, crown polish, action screw torque, and approximately 25 hours at the bench, and I am now quite confident in its ability to be an excellent early season squirrel gun and am chomping at the bit for the season open.

Shot this group today at 75 yards

That's a great group! I'd say the squirrels in your neck of the woods are in trouble!

Nice

My 77/22 does not like Federal Target. I get an inch + at 50 yards. My trigger is factory creepy and heavy. I definitely need a trigger job.

I've also shot some very good groups with Fed 711B Then it got hard to get and pricey!

How does the trigger adjust? Is there sear engagement adjustment? Overtravel adjustment? Pull weight? How hard was it to fit to the safety? How was safety to trigger adjustment done.... file, screw?

Was it nessary to inlet the wood at all for the new parts?

One pound too light? I would disagree, depending on the user, type of shooting, trigger manufacture and adjustment.
