I've got an Remington 788 in .223, part of my forum handle. When I bought this contraption 24 years ago at a gun show, it shot alright, but the smoothness wasn't there. I found a good smithy, he said the trig had been taken apart and put together all bass ackwards, he fixed it, but still not really a good trigger. I've checked around everywhere for a trig, no body makes one, every Remington trigger won't fit, too long, too big, no safety, :cuss: The rifle shoots like a house afire, very accurate, but as anyone knows, when you have to limp along every time you want to shoot, it sucks! A good buddy of mine told me last week about getting a Timney trig for his rifle, identical to mine. Well sports fans, today ol' 788Ham has a new one onboard his rifle, can't believe how this rascal fires!! :what: The weather here is snowy/cold/miserable, will have to wait a tad bit to get it re-sighted again, but it will be nice to finally shoot this ol' gal right. The trig is adjustable from 1 1/2 to 3 1/2 lbs, mine is set at 38 oz's, I can change it any time, but when I get it re-sighted, I think that's where it'll stay. Feels good to finally get a trig I know will work, I've got a couple of snap caps, have fooled with this outfit all evening, just trying to get used to the consistent feel. Happy Trails.
