Good luck on your dear hunt. That sounds like more fun than playing with springs. I was glad I could help, but then again, that remains to be seen.

The 541X trigger is not adjustable like the 541THB.

PA Frank,

You can swap out the 541THB trigger with a 541x or 580/590 series of rifles. If you can find an adjustable trigger assembly you got to be the Man! I go to a lot of gun shows and keep an eye on Ebay and I have never seen one. I have two or three of the no adjustable one aroung the house. You can convert them to adjustable with some 6/40 set screws. I was playing with one once but lost interest. I have a 541THB and several 580/1/2's and a few 541x's too. To many rifles and not enough time to shoot..

Remington 541

Does anyone out there know what other remington 22 parts, other than some 581 parts, are interchangeable with the 541 ?

a few questions...

i assume the HB is heavy barrel. is that correct? what years were the 541THB made?

why is dry firing bad? why is dryfiring with an empty case any better?

thanks.

How about the 541S series rifle, is the trigger the same as this one and could it be adjusted following this outline?

Yes. The standard advice is to leave the sear engagement adjustment alone UNLESS you have to adjust it.(Heck, leave the overtravel alone unless it needs changing.)

Set the pull weight(bottom front), maybe set the overtravel(top front), do the safety checks (cock the gun, slam the bolt, bounce the gun hard on the carpet to see if it fires on an EMPTY chamber) and then if you absolutely have to - mess with the sear adj.(rear)

Or, follow the directions that other guy wrote.

I agree. . .the trigger adjust procedure in Post #1 is for the Remington 700 series.

Beats me, my 541-S now has a 2-pound trigger using the original springs and parts. It wasn't too long ago that I found out that they quit using triggers with 3 adjustment screws like the ones on the 541-S and early 541-T. Of course, I don't have a Remington rifle made after 1980, so that could explain it. Anybody know if the 700's still have 3 screws?

Digging up an old thread, but...

John, I had to say thanks. I followed the directions on page 1 and I now have a marvelous trigger pull on my new/old 541T. I can't wait to give her another try at the Green Monster. The original heavy pull was contributing to my throwing occasional sixes and sevens at 50 yards and eights and nines at 25 yards. Now, I can find out how this beauty really shoots.

By the way, my rifle came with a beautiful set of Redfield 2-piece rotating dovetail bases and medium rings (all glossy blued). I wanted to put a larger AO scope than this set up would allow. So, I went with some low cost Weaver mounts (#15s) and some high rings I already owned. If anybody is interested in the Redfield four piece set, I will ship them to you for 25 bucks.

Wow.

What a difference a good trigger pull makes. I went over to the range today between rain showers and benched the 541T. Conditions were so miserable that I only shot one USBR target but the results were encouraging. 25 yards, Wolf Match Extra, Swift 6-18X44, 248-10X. I called both of the nines. So, I will try again for a 250 on a nicer day.
