If I adjust it to take out all the creep, the hammer will not cock at all. If I back it out the creep comes back. When I adjust it I only move it about 1/16 of a turn. I'm lost. I hate to admit it but I am. Just like removing jb weld. Take too much off and it serves no purpose. Too much jb weld and the hammer wont cock. I just cant seem to find that happy median.
I bought some drill bits to be used as over sized pins, to see if I can get rid of any slop that way.
I got frustrated like that when I was trying to adjust my PC sear, the adjustable one that came with the kit. I either had creep (or pretravel, whatever) or it didn't work. Or it would work awhile before not working. I finally filed the sear, one of the ends was rounded instead of squared off like the factory sear. It seems to work fine now.
When I posted my dillema someone had mentioned all the slop in the factory parts and I started to appreciate the precision of a well functioning trigger group. I've come to the conclution that there are a lot of factors affecting how the parts work together, like minute slop and how the parts fit together. I did the JB weld trick on one gun and I still have creep or pretravel. I've ordered another adjustable sear for it and also some shims to see if I can get it to be light and crisp.
The irony of it all is the first gun I modifed had a factory trigger that actually wasn't too bad and when I put a VQ hammer in it was almost perfect! I say "almost" because it's perfect for my needs but I can detect a teensy weensy bit of variation between trigger pulls every now and then. That gun has hardly any post travel and it had the loosest trigger pins of my 3 10/22's. I now have my PC equipped gun to where it's a "tad" lighter and crisper than that gun but it had lots of post travel that was removed by the set screw in the trigger.
I think when I filed my adjustable sear I must have made it fit the disconnector better, and it apparently moves the same each time because I FINALLY got it to consistantly work. I haven't shot this gun much, waiting on a new barrel and I havn't put loctite on the screw in the sear because I am afraid when I back it out to put the loctite on I will not be able to get it in the exact same working spot again. I'm going to wait till I get a little slop before I do that. The amount of adjustment between perfect and failing is so small it boggles my mind!!
