How do you set double set triggers?

    I was recently given a Thompson/Center Renegade with double set triggers. It had a nasty bore and needed a serious oiling down and cleaning. I did that and today I went to the range to get it zeroed before the next hunting season when I can use it. I am not satisfied with the double set triggers and was wondering how they are adjusted on this rifle. Any help would be appreciated.

    There should be a little screw between the triggers. Clockwise makes the pull lighter , vice versa. I find it good to cycle things after setting, it lets everything settle in. I do not like hair settings for most hunting. Hair triggers and adrenaline can be a little to much. If the screw is lost, it is either a 4/40, or 6/40. Sometimes they do work out and get lost. Put a little non hardening loc tite on threads, or clear nail polish.

    Thanks. The reason that I want to do it as the previous owner had a hair trigger on it and I do not want it to accidentally discharge.

    In any of those gut tightening moments while you wait for the perfect shot the last thing you need is a hair trigger. For long ,deliberate shots, there is nothing like one. Are TC triggers still made to fire set or unset? I think I remember them that way. That is the best of two worlds.

    Yes they are, so the answer is, if you don't want a hair trigger just don't "set" it.

    Bernie, check out Thompson/Center's web site at www.tcarms.com. They don't take customer service e-mails but their address and phone # can be found there.
    Shoot well and often.
