    Norinco Trigger adjustment

    So my JW105 (223) is teaching me heaps which is the point of the cheap gun.

    I have floated the barrel and put a few rounds through it to get it some where near sighted in.

    My question is, should i mess around with the trigger adjustment or leave something like that to a pro? I have the instruction manual showing me what screw does what, it has what i would call a 4 way adjustment.

    What's the worst that could happen?
    If i could have a full time job shooting pests i'm up for over time.

    They aren't hard to adjust. If you adjust the creep and weight too much the safety stops working though and if you slam the but down it will fire it.
    So just do the adjustments a small bit at a time and you will be fine.

    Take note of where the settings are, and ajust each thing 1 at a time, then check fu tion still works.
    I like to first ajust the pull weight, then sear engagement, then over travel.
    Screw out the pull weight screw to, say, 2.5lb.
    Then I cock the action and screw in the sear engagement screw untill it drops the firing pin. Then screw it back out about a quarter turn.
    then screw the overtravel in until it stops the trigger firing, then back out about a quarter turn. Check for safe funtion and slam the shit out of the bolt to see it will not decock itself on closing.
    It should be all good.

    Sometimes you will need to back the sear engagement off a little to keep the safety working.

    if it has springs inside then swap them out rather than cutting them, pens are a good donor for trigger springs

    Just be very sure of what your doing before you do something that can not be easily undone

    also youtube it and sit watch and learn

    Good way to check you havent lightened it up too much is just be really rough with the bolt on closing and give the butt a bang with a rubber mallet, if it doesnt fire that way and you like the trigger pull your sorted and wont slip over in the bush and give yourself a lead injection.
    Rule 4 : Gat dat fool

    and bang the butt of the rifle firmly on a hard surface

    a gunsmith told me what makes a good trigger is smooth surfaces and sharp edges
    so polish without rounding anything and look to not remove any material
