    Is that the one I sent to you?

    Foster - if your Kuhnhausen book doesnt come back I have a copy i will hire to you .. ;-)
    @muzza no I dont think they are.
    Doing research on mauser triggers a while back suggested that.
    There is/was a rather expensive winchester model 70 style trigger for them too

    silly question. I do have a Timney and a canjar trigger for a p14. Some references suggest that some models do fit and others dont.
    Might be worth digging out for a play?
    Soon know if it work or not

    The correct angle for 2-stage Mauser triggers is 90 degrees on the sear and cocking piece. Adjustment is made by stoning both faces to a mirror finish and then reducing the sear height to get a crisp second stage pull. Different springs can be tried to alter the pressure but they should always return the sear to full depth if the trigger is released. A small screw can be fitted into the front lip of the trigger to regulate first pressure engagement. The Mauser trigger can be very nicely set up with careful work. Altering the sear angle causes problems as you have discovered. If you have taken it too far then the sear can be rebuilt with weld, recut, case-hardened, then finish stoned. Any of the single-stage after-market triggers (Timney, Parker-Hale, etc) are a good choice and easily adjustable.

    Triggers are easy to ruin.

    I know a bloke who had just purchased a mauser , and decided to check to see if his handloads would fit the chamber . He closed the bolt on the live round and it went bang as he dropped the bolt handle . Very loud in his workshop , went through both panes of glass in his open sliding door , and ended up in his neigbours full wood shed 50 metres away. Reckons his ears are still ringing - from the bang and then from the bollocking his missus gave him...

    Dont mess with triggers if you dont know what you are doing - please.

    @gundoc yup that is what I am finding out too-90 degrees @muzza well aware of the dangers if trigger work even if I have stuffed my first one up
    If I'm not happy with it, it wont be used.
    It will have to pass my personal tests otherwise no go.
    I know what I wanted out of this trigger and at the moment it isnt doing it.
    At the worst i have to put another sear box or next option a Timney.
    While I do have enough engineering experience to have a crack at this I also have enough experience to know when it's wrong.

    Bit weird, not resetting after polishing? If I read that right something else must have changed somewhere to make that alteration in operation?

    @Mauser308 I would suggest the stoning I did first is the problem
    Mind you also had a decent look at the cocking piece and that is angled back, not at 90 degrees.
    As in the bottom edge is forward of where it meets the main body of the cocking piece. Like a saw tooth.
    Although I would have thought that would help it.
    But it isnt 90 degrees
    Truth be told I dont remember trying to see if it reset itself originally. It was something I tested after I mucked with it.
    I'm taking the blame for the issue as I reckon it is most likely
