    Just got a new ruger no 1 in 25-06, my favorite by the way. How can I adjust the trigger pull on my own or can I? THX JEFF

    I got a few No. 1s, Ruger advises you not to fool with it, but for a rifle that expensive I take it to a gunsmith that has the right tools, the right feel to adjust a trigger. it can be done, rebedding, shimming, a few other tricks, but I let my gunsmith do it. My latest Varminter in .22-250 with some help from my gunsmith shoots 3/4" groups.

    I have a #1 in .204. My brother has several #1s in various calibers. The triggers on our varmint calibers, .204 and .223 have been adjusted by the same gunsmith to a fairly crisp 2 lbs. Just be sure the gunsmith knows what he is doing. My brother had his adjusted by a guy who he didn't know. The guy claimed that single shots were his specialty but, he screwed it up. We had to take it to my gunsmith to fix it.

    I have a couple #1s and I love them. So far I'm tolerating the triggers. Mine are the later style (post 1980 I hear) that are "two screw" models. Earlier ones came with a third adjusting screw. Still, early models often sported replacement Canjar triggers. These are no longer made. I understand there is a set trigger from Europe available and a three screw replacement from Moyers gunsmith in southern Idaho. Good luck! :)
