Trigger pull on a Romanian 22



Log in to see fewer ads
Has anybody ever measured the trigger pull on their Romanian 22's? Are some rifles trigger pull lighter or heavier than others?

Thanks

Military Surplus,

www.surplusrifle.com has an article on checking the Romy trigger pull with the new Feather River Sports Trigger Pull Gauge.

The Romy has the best trigger for tweaking. The design allows for both take up and overtravel adjustments. With a couple of set screws you can adjust the trigger as light as you want.

For a field gun my Rommy trigger is pretty decent, better than most new production rimfires like the 10/22 or Marlin 60. For a serious bench shooter it leaves a lot to be desired but its not terrible. Since my Rommy sees more time in the woods than on the bench I left it as is, not exactlly sure of the pull # but may check it out soon.

Exclamation Romi Triggers are EASY to work on.

About as simple and easy to work on as possible. Have found that the stiffer triggers are on the most unused weapons. Have done 10 triggers.Best possible fix is to stone all three of the surfaces that touch. The tip of the trigger to the horizontal sear face. The horizontal sear face and the vertical sear face that contacts the bolt as the release point. That with a good cleaning of built up crud, and light oiling and Wa Lay, you got a GREAT trigger!

Yeah, I'm curious about set screws also.

As far as stoning the metal parts, be careful: My Romy (and many others) have a nice 2-stage kinda trigger, where you take up the slack, then hit a point where another tiny pull sets it off. If you smooth the trigger face too much you'll lose that, and each round surprises you as to when it breaks. Nicer for target shooting, but I like knowing exactly when it'll go off, as I tend to hunt with mine a lot more.

Are you thinking of the Romanian Cugir?

I think FAT CAT might be thinking of the Romanian Cugir single shot rifle. It does indeed have an adjustable trigger that is very easy to work with.

No set screws, it has a two stage military trigger.

Set Screw

I put set screws in both mine and my Daughters Romies trigger gaurds for overtravel. On Mine I drilled and tapped a hole in the trigger houseing under the sear. With it I was able to get rid of all the pretravel and even cut into sear engaugement. I have it set to cut the pretravel (1st stage) in half. My Daughter said it best "I like haveing that line you can feel,knowing with a hair more pressure it will go off. " Setting the screw is total trial an error and it is easy to make the gun totally unsafe. I tried all different safe settings with mine and had my Daughter try my trigger: Her conclution every time was "Don't you dare touch my gun!"
