    The following is a post from another site that I posted earlier. Must not have been allowed, because Shooter13 wanted the link dropped and the post changed. So here is the changed post and Shooter13 if you would please delete the other post. Thanks !

    Like I said this post is from someone else including the pictures. So Tim1976 at RimFireCentral gets all the credit for this part of the post. I believe he saw it from another thread some where.

    But anyway I did this to my T-Bolt and what a huge difference it made. You now have full range of trigger adjustment and I do not have a scale but believe my trigger to be around 2 pounds. No take up and very little movement. I did do a few bump tests and had no accidental discharges. Plus if I ever decide that it is to light I can use the adjustment screw to take the screw all the way past the level of factory setting. This rifle for me is strictly a target rifle (paper puncher) so I really need a nice trigger, it is almost as nice as my Remington 540X and my Clarks Custom 10/22. Anyway made a huge difference in mine.



    After seeing the simplicity of the trigger set up I noticed that the spring which the adjustable grub screw affects is under a substantial amount of preload due to the plastic housing protruding about 2.5mm higher than the housing of the grub screw.

    After a couple of minutes gently shaving the housing in line with the top of the housing for the grub screw the spring now sits more relaxed and the result is a 2 1/2 lb trigger with full adjustment via the adjustment grub screw. Wound out with no pressure on the spring the trigger pull is a perfectly crisp 2 & 1/2 lbs and can be adjusted back up to as heavy as you want.

    I love the rifle except for the lawyer trigger. I looked for and found an after market trigger but decided against ordering it do to the high cost. This looks like a easy, no cost fix. Thanks for sharing.

    Well that was a little disappointing. After finishing my 'trigger job' and getting the rifle put back together, I only managed to get one pound reduction. The trigger pulled was tested five times with a electronic tester and with the adjustment screw backed all the way out. An improvement yes but not down to the 2.5 lbs I was hoping for.

    2.5 lbs. is respectable. I believe the Ruger BX trigger chimes in around the same.

    I would have been very happy with 2.5 lbs. Mine is sitting @ 3.25 lbs.
