Log in to see fewer ads
Hi all, has any one had any issue installing a Jard trigger on a 77/17?

I installed one yesterday and the trigger does not fit the trigger guard

I had my local gunsmith install mine with no issues on one of the first ruger 17wsm rifles in production. I'm not sure why your trigger won't work unless the trigger design or trigger guard has changed if you have a newer rifle.

I can't see why ruger would change the trigger guard. I am hoping Jard has sent me the wrong trigger profile, like maybe a centrefire M77 trigger instead.

I have one in my 77/17 WSM, 77/44 MAG, and #1 .450 bushmaster. They all fit like a glove, and work awesome. I'm thinking you may not be getting the front of the trigger guard "latched" in, and then the opening of the guard at the back is hitting the back of the trigger. Describe why it doesn't fit and we may be able to help better. IF the back of the trigger is hitting the back of the trigger guard, cock the bolt before installing and be sure the guard is latched in at the front properly.

Ill try and take some pictures tonight, but for now ill try and explain it.

If i latch the front of the trigger guard in and pivot it back (bolt removed, sear lifted, trigger as far forward as possible) the trigger hits the guard behind the slot for the trigger to fit through.

If i remove the sear (just to see the extent of the problem) and move the trigger as far forward as possible, the trigger will slide into the slot and the guard will go down. However, the trigger hugs the rear of the trigger guard. Is this position the trigger wont even contact the safety lug and hence could never fire even if i tried.

This leads me to believe i have been sent the wrong trigger profile from Jard.

You need the 1176 trigger for a 77/22. The sear is the same, but there is a 1146 trigger for a 77 mkll and a 2259 for a 77 Hawkeye.

I’ll say i’m Sorry you got the wrong trigger, but when you do get the correct one it will be worth the wait. There is none better. I done tried all the others, and there is no comparison. Another thing on triggers is this stuff. Kidd puts it on all their triggers, and I have found nothing slicker.

Awesome. Thank you for the pictures Michael.

Jard has sent me the wrong trigger then. I ordered the correct set (#1184, 2lb).

I am waiting for a reply from Jard and then will have to see if they can send me the correct trigger.

Thanks for your help 😊

You are welcome! Just let me know how you like it when you get the correct one. You may want to order an assortment of the springs so you can dial it in where you want it. I went with 1# in mine,and really like it.

I have the 1, 1.5 and 2lb springs. I tried the 2lb and 1.5lb springs. I was very happy with the results. I had adjusted it all up correctly, then went to put back in the stock and it didn't fit.

Which ammo does yours like the best?

Mine shoots most everything good with a slight edge to the Hornady 20 grain. With that said, a different lot of ammo can shoot totally different. I also fully floated my barrel and it helped.

I did also go nuts and put a Swarovski 3.5x18 scope on it which is awesome, but for the cost it should be.

Good to know. I have only tried the 20 and 25 Winchester loads so far. It was really windy so i only had a few shots to run in the barrel and get it on paper.

One of the gun shops here in Australia has an awesome special on American Eagle ammo at the moment of about $9 USD a packet. I have bought 1000 rounds and my mate will pick them up next month. Hopefully they shoot well
