Easy mod for a 2 & 1/2 lb T-bolt trigger

I saw in a post somewhere a T-bolt owner had disassembled his T-bolt trigger and posted some photos.

After seeing the simplicity of the trigger set up I noticed that the spring which the adjustable grub screw affects is under a substantial amount of preload due to the plastic housing protruding about 2.5mm higher than the housing of the grub screw.

After a couple of minutes gently shaving the housing in line with the top of the housing for the grub screw the spring now sits more relaxed and the result is a 2 1/2 lb trigger with full adjustment via the adjustment grub screw. Wound out with no pressure on the spring the trigger pull is a perfectly crisp 2 & 1/2 lbs and can be adjusted back up to as heavy as you want.

I Like that ..........No wonder when you back the screw out for lighter pull it just turns free with no pressure.....makes sense



Thank You


JEFF

It is a very easy, zero dollar fix and you still maintain all sears and springs in factory condition. It simply allows you the full range of adjustment through the factory grub screw. If you have a close look at the factory housing you can see an outline around the raised section which makes me think it may be an add on from the original design to make the factory trigger pull "Lawyer resistant" in its out of the box lightest configuration.

Tim, could you describe how you got into the housing? Any complications or hazards to watch for?

This would explain why one of mine is somewhat adjustable and on the other the adjustment screw has no effect! How did this affect the bolt hold in? On mine with the adjustment screw baked out that does lower the trigger pull, it makes the bolt release inactive and I have to use a tool to depress the bolt hold while retracting the bolt to remove it.

Once you have the rifle disassembled you will see a warning sticker on the trigger mechanism. Lift the sticker and undo the screw underneath it. The action can then be removed from rifle.

Look on the side of the plastic and you will see some tabs. Slide a small screw driver underneath the tabs and gently lift them up. Repeat for each tab and gently lift the side cover off the mechanism.

I'm also definitely looking forward to the Jard trigger. I was hoping to hear of some news on it from Shot Show.
