Trigger Weight for Lever Action Silhouette?



Log in to see fewer ads
I may never shoot competition but I would like to reduce pull to close to minimum weight. I'm sure this is online but I haven't found it. I am assuming a NRA blessed weight? I'm guessing 3lbs. Anyone know the weight limit.
Thanks
Mike

According to the rule book, for NRA cowboy lever action silhouette, there are no minimum trigger requirements. Good idea is to make it similar weight as your other silhouette rifles so the trigger isn't too different.

Thanks. I checked with a local group and there is no minimum weight-just a safe trigger. I think I will go with 2lbs or close to it with no creep and crisp break.

For CLA it is a safe trigger. You can go as low as you like. I run all my CLA rifles around 2 pounds or a little less. Now for high power and small bore silhouette there are two trigger weights. Standard rifle high power or small bore it is a safe trigger. But in hunter rifle class (high power and/or small bore) it is two pounds.
