Triggers ?



Log in to see fewer ads
I have tried to search info on the bsa martini triggers in regards to lowest amount of pull the triggers will go. Some say down to 1lb or ounces others say they will not go that low only in the lbs. Can one clear the truth for me ? Thanks James

Have no expertise, but just bought an International Mark IV which came with the trigger set at 8oz. Slam fired the first two times I tried it, but after I realized I did not have to close the action aggressively(my first Martini), it has not slam fired again and works great.

My Internationals will all adjust down to 8ozs or lower but as has already been stated, do not close the action too aggressively or you will risk a slamfire. I always adjust until it is so light that the mechanism does not `set` and then screw the adjuster in half a turn and try again. Always be sure the muzzle is pointed at the butt stop when closing the action. I consider the International trigger to be the equal of any other 22 target rifle, a true `breaking glass` feel to it.

James, ya gots ta help us...which BSA Martini do you have? BSA made large action military rifles, a whole host of Francotte based models, and then the International rifles with fully adjustable triggers. The military rifles generally can go down (with careful gunsmithing) to about 2 1/2 to 3 pounds, the Francotte types can be worked down to around 2 and the Internationals can be user adjusted into the 8 ounce range.

I don't have one I was going to buy the international isu in the classifeds but I everybody that I talk to said the trigger were not very light. Is there one model better than another for the triggers? I need a gun for shooting off a bench 30 yards with no warm up shots.

The Mk4/ISU trigger is, as I have already stated, as good as any and better than most and Iam sure you will be very pleased with the trigger weight and feel.!! As regards shooting with no warm up shots, every match rifle of whatever make that I have owned, has always shot better from a `warm `barrel. Tony

BSA Martini MKll, MKlll, MKlV, & MKV

All of the above have excellent adjustable triggers. My humble opinion of course. My personnel favorite is the MKlll. The only model with a floated barrel.
