    Savage 22 trigger

    Yo ho ho

    I recently brought a Savage MK II 22lr bolt action off here & the trigger is absolute shite, any tips on lighting it up ?

    I've checked the net but they're all different than this one

    Possibly a really old model or an 'aftermarket' but that's definitely not the factory savage accu-trigger or safety.

    Nah Phili my instructions for fixing a savage trigger are the accutruger ones with the blade. And they're easy to fix ( also goes for the Ruger ones too) and the sear etc is good hard steel not chemically hardened crap you can get.

    Is this a older rifle? Or are they doing these now?
    Drop in?..

    Yeah it's an older "pre accu" model, bwety rifle but the spring tension on the trigger is off the scale, shit its heavy & it's a fancy coil spring to boot so might be a lost cause

    Hahaha think I just fixed it, jammed a gizmo into the trigger spring & gave it a "gentle twig" lol, feels heaps better now.

    Will know once I put it back together

    If it's the spring causing the extra weight can you cut a couple of coils off the end of it?

    Hi @bully and @223nut here's the link to the fix for the Accutrigers - as I say works equally across both Savage and Ruger's using the accutrigger - set up have done this to my old BTVLSS and Ruger ranch.

    Ruger Amer. Rimfire trigger job - Calguns.net

    I also had wee bit of creep in the sear - which we took out as the face was a bit long for my liking before it would break and gave a wee touch-up with a diamond hone. Good news was it wasn't chemically hardened steel like you get in some AR triggers and the like but proper hard tool steel - YAY! so you don't end up with a gritty feeling trigger whilst taking out the creep.

    There are some good pic's on Nathans terminal ballistics site that will show you what a good angle on the sear should look like.

    Hope it helps fellas!
    @Philipo have a good play with the old one as you could drop in a new target or std Accu trigger if she all turns to shite !
