OK Guys I need some help. After reading all the threads on the RB trigger I decided to give it a go myself. I have it installed (which wasvery easy up until now) but the sear screw will not stay set and after 5 - 10 of working the bolt it becomes so light it fires when closing (it is not loaded, only an empty in it). I tried the nail polish trick I read about with no luck and have moved now to thread tight. I am on my second try with that now. Any thougts to a solution would be great.

One other thing, the directions show a sear nut but mine did not come with one that I can locate, is this my problem?

Thanks in advance for the help.

Sorry about that, it is a Marlin 917V and I thought about trying to not even use it (if that is possible). Right now I am the same way and start with it as heavy as possible and working the bolt keeps going the way with it.

My Sear engagement screw might as well not even be there. If I put just a little pressure on the sear, it fired. Have you tried it with little or no "sear screw pressure"?

For the 900 series, there isn't room for a locknut on the engagement screw, so it isn't included.

Crimp the threads a bit to give the screw a bit of resistance. Worked fine for me.

Thanks all, it took a few apps of thead lock but finally got it to hold and the RB trigger is by far worth the money. Now I just need to get to the range again to see if I can shoot these .25" groups everyone else is getting. So far my best is a 5 shot at .5" 75 yd group.
