Jard trigger for T-Bolt



Log in to see fewer ads
Been working a lot of overtime here the last 6 month and it doesn't look like there's any reprieve coming anytime soon... So I'm thinking about spending some of that money...

For you guys that have custom triggers in your guns what pound trigger would you recommend for a squirrel hunting rig???

I personally love a 2-2 1/2lb trigger in my squirrel rifles. I don't hunt with gloves on much which makes a difference to me. My T bolt I just got is just over 4lbs but breaks so amazingly clean that I may shoot it for a while before I tear into it. Also my son is the only other one that really uses my rifles while hunting and he knows the triggers are light so no problem.

Thinking 2lb prob just about right... the T-Bolt trigger does seem good for a 4-4.5# trigger

T-bolt has a decent trigger, its just not light. If my Uncle's T-bolt were mine, I already have this thing.

My wife bought me one of the Jard T-bolt triggers for Valentine's Day (I have a great wife!) I went with the middle weight spring which I think was 16 oz. The pull weight is adjustable so I was able to set it up for what was comfortable for me as a squirrel hunting rig.

Just a word of advice if you get one. The instructions that came with the trigger said it was pretty much set up from the factory and required little to no adjustment. That was not true with the trigger I received. Mine required a lot of adjustment to get everything right. I had issues with the rifle slam firing, the safety not engaging, and the sear not holding the bolt like it should. The problems tended not to reveal themselves until I actually started shooting the rifle. I would fix one issue and test it numerous times with a snap cap, go shoot it, and another problem would pop up. I had to call the company a few times. If you don't already have a stubby set of allen wrenches buy some or grind some off, especially if you have to raise or lower the sear. The adjustment screw for that is in a recess behind the trigger guard. I found it very difficult to adjust with normal allen wrenches. On a positive note, Jard was very helpful when I called them in resolving my issues. Once it was adjusted correctly it shot fantastic.

I must have been lucky because the Jard trigger assembly that I put in my T-Bolt was a straight drop in operation. It breaks like glass and a tad over 1 pound and it really makes shooting the rifle fun. Hopefully they won't all be a pain to install.

I'll be interested to see how your trigger install goes BWstickman. Mine was really easy but I did read the instructions a few times to make sure I had it down.

I just got a T bolt haven't shot it yet. I dont have a pull gauge. I removed the adjustment screw and while it is heavy it does break nice. All My BR rifles and a few Custom Big Game Rifle have Jewell Triggers my hunting Rifle is 8OZ but I am used to a 1 1/2 OZ trigger and can actually get a squeeze and let off on it. So I am not beyond getting a Jard Trigger but hate that I will loose that gold looking Trigger. Some said there is a thread where you can work on the T bolt trigger and get down to 2.5 LBS but I have not found it. I looked at my trigger and I see is nothing just a black housing. I dont even see how it comes off.

If I remember it’s a pop fit. Caveat, remember to put the screw( holds unit to barrel) back in place before popping it together. I removed the “lawyer ledge” and it didn’t do anything to the trigger pull(stayed 4lbs). Bought a Jard at 20 ounces,should have bought a selection of lighter springs at the same time
