    this is too easy, best all time trigger for a 22; anything Anschutz.
    best all time factory trigger for centerfire= remmy 788, nothing else comes close to the no creep at all, plus a locktime as fast as you can blink an eye.

    Best: 5.6m HRA Garand, factory. Butter smooth and utterly consistent.

    Worst: My '43 Izzy 91/30. Horrible feel, sudden break, terrible pull. You all know the old cliche about how the actual shot should almost come as a surprise? This one literally does.

    Best: Airarms S410E. Adjusted right down to a matter of ounces and very clean and smooth.

    Worst: Indian Brown Bess replica. Over 30 lbs. out of the box. It was so heavy it felt like I was bending parts inside the lock when I pulled it.
    Worst 2nd place: AMT .380 Backup. About a 20 lb. pull. Not such a big deal with this one though since it's a single action pocket pistol. If I'm going to carry something like that cocked, locked and concealed I don't want any hair triggers.

    +1 on stock Ruger 10/22

    also, the GSG-5 has wayyyyy too much creep. but not a fair offering since it isnt a common enough firearm for most people to test. one day....

    I love CZ triggers, both centerfire and rimfire. My 336 has one of the crispest triggers I have ever felt. It isn't benchrest light but it certainly is as crisp as it gets. Really fun.

    Worst: the DSA fire control group on my FAL. Heavy, gritty pull. They say a trigger should break like glass but this one pulls like broken glass instead.

    1916 oberendorf mauser. set trigger, no take up, no creep, 10oz pull (I'm probably a little too proud of the work I did on this trigger...and the whole gun itself, but if you hold it in your hand and shoot it once, you'll understand my enthusiasm for this gun)
    howa 1500. single stage, 3.5lb, no take up, very crisp
    puma92. single stage, 7lb, very crisp and clean pull.

    Worst

    springfield 84c. there are no words in elvish, entish, or the tounges of men to accurately describe the god awfulness of this trigger.

    I've been through about 80 guns since I started buying, but lots of these I don't have anymore. I remember the peaches and the stinkers, though.

    Best:
    Swiss K31, actually the second one (I've had two).
    CZ 527's set trigger was nice.

    Worst:
    Probably one of the several Mosin Nagants I had.

    Best - Savage Model 12 FV AccuTrigger

    Worst - Mossberg 640 KD Chuckster. Trigger pull is about 8 lbs. I've had it to one gunsmith so far who could not lighten it up any.

    Shawnee - has yours had any work done to it? Do you know how old your rifle is? Mine is from the early 80's, I think.
