Remington Model 514 Trigger Spring



Log in to see fewer ads
I'm trying to get my daughter into target practice. She's turning 8 very soon. I can take her to the local rifle range when she turns 8. The problem is the trigger pull, although light to me, is to heavy for her little hands. She's very disappointed right now.

I was wondering if there is a way to lighten the trigger up on this. Maybe a lighter trigger spring could work?

Any help or good alternatives are welcome.

So, how did you solve that?

Amazingly, I just finished disassembling a 514 about 30 minutes ago. I'm getting it ready to give away next month.

She just practiced and worked on her muscles. She has no problem pulling it now. I think it was more mind over matter for her. LOL

I just got several springs in the same diameter from my local hardware that were lighter wire and cut them down until I now have 3# pull. So much better and the action is easier to work, too.

Sorry. I can't find the exact number right now but the spring I used was made by Century Spring Corp. of Los Angeles, CA. They make the same springs I use on my CZ triggers. http://www.centuryspring.com/Products/compression.php
