    Air Rifle Triggers

    I thought there was a tread on this but dammed if I can find it . . .

    So if a guy was thinking of getting a bit more offhand practise in with a (probably breakbarrel) air rifle - do any of less expensive brands (and particular model) stand out for having a trigger (either single or two stage) that is like a good centrefire trigger ??

    I had a Gamo Hunter 220 (wood stock, .22 cal) that had a decent enough trigger once adjusted, although not on par with any of the "good" centrefire one's I've had. To get a really good one, you're probably going to have to have it worked, or buy something like a Diana or Weirauch.
    More meplat, more better.

    I have an old Daisy that has an amazing trigger, it's quite a clever design and contains a couple of ball bearings, I wish they would use that trigger on some of the centre fires out there.

    There are only three types of people in this world. Those that can count, and those that can't!

    I got a stoeger model from humping and fisting a couple of years ago.
    Trigger was shite. Bit of doctor google and made up a roller for the trigger. Made an absolute huge difference. I did put the little spring back in but I did consider taking it out as it was even better.
    if you find the clip I mean you will understand. You can even use small roller bearings if you can find them
    Thought my sons friend was getting one and I made a couple more just in case, but he didn't so I think I still have them in the toolbox.
    a lot have the same trigger although I did have a crack at the old boss's slug guns he used and abused and they were way harder to dick with so I passed on them.
    Not the same at all
