    All righty, now...

    I'm interested in buying a new Marlin XT-22MTW. This is a bolt action, tube fed, .22 magnum rifle.

    My very first firearm I purchased was a Marlin 783...an older version of the XT-22MTW. It was stolen, and I replaced it with their 22LR version; but I'd like to buy another .22 magnum. I had put untold thousands of rounds through that rifle before it was stolen and it was impressively accurate and powerful.

    However, the XT-22MTW has a new trigger mechanism...the Pro-Fire Adjustable Trigger. And bugger all if I can find one darn review online that seems to be an objective review of its function and performance. Every single review I've found was nothing more than a parroting of what Marlin has to say about it.

    I don't really have any concerns with the adjustable feature of the trigger. I'm far more concerned with the integral safety built into the trigger. Specifically, how it feels, any potential reliability issues, and whether or not it's a feature that is "in the background"...meaning it doesn't take any getting used to over a conventional rifle trigger and is, essentially, unnoticable during practical use.

    Anybody out there have any real life experience with the Pro-Fire?

    My Marlin XS in 7mm 08 has the profire trigger. I like it , it s the savage accutrigger. Very crisp trigger break and quite safe. That be a good choice for a .22 win mag.

    Does the built in safety feel odd or otherwise detract from how a "regular" trigger feels and operates?

    I purchases an XT-22 a few months back. I bought it specifically for the tube magazine. I like the trigger. It took me about one shot to forget that it was different than the rest of my guns.

    Well, so far so good!

    These short snippets from experience at least carry the weight of people with experience on this trigger!

    Now, why can't I find a decent review that isn't a blind regurgitation of the Marlin sales pitch?

    ;)

    I don't know if the rimfire triggers are any different, but I can echo what has already been said about the centerfire triggers. Mine is fantastic and everyone that has shot it has been shocked at how light it breaks. Mine is set at just above 1.5lbs. It took me a while to get 100% comfortable with that light of a trigger, but it works wonderfully for target shooting.

    What do you think of the built in safety on the trigger? Any concerns? Irritations? Or was it essentially an "invisible feature" in its operation?
