Getting ready for winter, just picked up a bargain on a Rim Fire Capable bullet trap for the basement air-gun range. I was hoping for some fall outside shooting but we've had a bunch of rain, wind, early cold....pretty much a non-starter for air guns and 22s.

To be honest I don't consider the sear engagement screw to be 'forbidden', just take time to understand how the trigger works before attempting to adjust it.

Essentially this torx screw controls the total sear engagement of the trigger.

The 'staging' of the trigger is set by the two hardened steel crosspins in the upper edge of the trigger blade.

The trick with the torx screw is to set it so that the second stage pin touches the bottom sear (the second stage stop point) at a near knife edge level of engagement between the bottom and middle sears to give a clean crisp and creep free break.

Adjusting the trigger too far in you lose the second stage, the trigger will release during the first stage movement, too far out and you feel a creepy second stage.

With the action out of the stock you can manually set the trigger mechanism without cocking the rifle and adjust the settings, one point to remember is that you need to allow for the effect of the full spring load, so set the torx for a creep free release on the second stage, then back it off a fraction, roughly 1/8 turn is usually enough.

There is a useful little window in the trigger chassis that allows you to see the sear engagement.

You need to achieve a balance of final engagement and release weight so the if you choose not to release the shot, the trigger returns to its full engagement position. If it hangs up at the second stage and becomes limp then you need a whisker more engagement and weight added.

As mentioned above there are online sources showing how to adjust the unit.
