    Yesterday I bought an EMF Hartford Sharps business rifle. It has a double set trigger. If I don't set it the trigger pull is probably 20 pounds. If I do set it it's under an ounce. There's a little screw between the triggers is that an adjustment? I'd rather not just start messing with it without knowing and I can't find a manual for it online. Any help would be appreciated.

    It is an adjustment screw, but I think it only adjusts the "set" pull, not the unset.

    20 pounds? That's crazy. My Pedersoli is probably 5-7 pounds unset. When it's set a gnat's fart could trip it.

    Yeah i just played with the screw all it adjusts is the set trigger. I'm not sure if the unset weight really is 20 pounds. I do know I can't pull it with one finger. It will have to make a trip to the gunsmith. Oh mine is made by Pedersoli too. Maybe the trigger is why it was such a good deal.
