Marlin 80 Trigger Pull



Log in to see fewer ads
I have the trigger pull down to 3lb 8oz by changing out the trigger spring and a little polishing on the trigger and sear mating surfaces. I would like to to get as close to 2 lbs as is safe since I am using this for offhand and hope to get into silhouette shooting. Where do I go from here. The rifle is a '50's vintage . I cannot seem to locate a 2000 sear. So what says the collective wisdom?

I don't know if the Riflebasix trigger can fit your rifle or not, since the older rifles are not listed. I would give them a call, can't hurt.

I looked on their site and it appears they do not offer an option for the older triggers.

They did offer them at one time. I just thought, you never know if they have one laying on the shelf unless you call.


Wolff spring offers gunsmith assortments, a couple varieties, I bought them to work on an H&R 865 with an extremely heavy trigger. Trying to get a good balance between the trigger return and sear spring weights to minimize pull weight while retaining reset reliability.

Get back into the works.
Clean and dry the sear/notch multiple times, it Must Be Clean and Dry.
Apply a bit of automotive anti-seize compound to the contact surfaces.
Reassemble and dry-fire a bit to burnish the lube into the surfaces (dont let the striker fall onto an empty chamber!).
Give it a go.

That MAR-1 listed above will fit the 80 model. Same trigger as the 25, 880, etc listed on their website.

I did a little more stoning on the trigger / sear junction and then used the anti seize.
It is not down to 1lb 8 oz on a Wheeler gauge and is completely safe. No fire when bumped soundly on the but and no fire with the movement of the safety. Looking forward to shooting next weekend. Cost me all of $1.49 and my time to get it there.
Thanks gcrank1

Curious what spring(s) you used, and whether the model 80 and 81 share the same trigger design. I just polished up the trigger on my model 81 and was thinking of trying some lighter springs, but was looking for some leads on where to get them. Thanks

Yup, from their page "If you have a bolt action Marlin rimfire and it is not a 900 series, this is the trigger you need."
