Im having a bitch of a time removing this damned Remington trigger. It says to take a punch to the two bars holding the trigger and it should come out lightly. Nope, doesn't work.

Help please.

move the safety out of the way and they should pop out pretty easily.

pay attention to the bolt release and how it is hooked together - it will save you 45 minutes of angst later.

Success!

After about 2 1/2 hrs of fitting I have the trigger in.

I had to sand down the reciever area of the stock where the safety lever fits. This took about 45 min, periodically checking to see if it fit in then.

I thought this was it, but nope. I discovered the bolt release protured, touching the trigger guard. This would hang it up, after I depressed it, and it wouldn't come back down. I had to get a metal file and file down that area (needs to be reblued now), so that it would come back down after depressed.

It's not perfect but it saves a trip to the gunsmith. The bolt release is still a little stiff coming back down, but does so. As well, I'll need to sand down the stock again to get the safety lever to actually move and engage.

Any tips as to:

sanding down a metal trigger guard?

sanding a stock to the perfect fit for the safety lever?

rebluing to get that matte black look?


Thanks.

What model of 700? I ran into this when I installed a Jewell in my Sendero SF II with the H-S precision stock. My gunsmith pointed out there was enough slop in how you tightened the stock bolts that I just needed to tweek the barreled action as I tightened it into the stock. This also centered the barrel in the barrel channel better too. SO I'd try that first and see if you can loosed the bolts, tweek the barreled action whichever direction you need to clearance the trigger on the stock/bottom metal. Tighten in that position. Very little movement of the barreled action makes a world of difference in clearance of the trigger.

If the bolt is still in the gun it will hang things up but you should be able to drive out two or three pins and It's out.

Well, it was actually for a Remington XR-100. The guy labeled it as this, but it came packaged as Remignton 700, 40x, benchrest trigger...

Can you try loosening the stock bolts, pulling the action over slightly while tightening the bolts?
