Fitting the fire-control components individually results in the best possible trigger release with little to no creep or overtravel
and a short reset.
Not only can you adjust it to eliminate overtravel
, you can adjust it to eliminate take-up as well.
Fab-processed 200-mm wafers with electrically shorted bond pads were probed at a 2-mil overtravel
, and the [C.sub.RES] values between pin pairs at each touchdown were measured and recorded using a custom test program.
It also has a trigger overtravel
stop and a tuned action.
Lock up was tight, the crown was perfect, and an excellent trigger job had been performed that had no creep and no overtravel
. To my surprise, it came with a Weaver scope base, which was why the rear sight was missing.
The trigger in this rifle is Lithgow's three-lever-style module that is adjust able for trigger weight, sear engagement and overtravel
. It's an easy trigger to adjust; simply remove two 5mm hex-head screws from the underside of the trigger assembly and the trigger guard, stock and action come apart easily.
The top one regulates overtravel
, while the lower one adjusts pull weight.
One of the biggest tasks in learning trigger control is managing follow-through to deal with overtravel
. The bump stops the trigger immediately after it releases the hammer, and that helps a great deal.
Through the use of fully automated overtravel
measuring systems this can be economically achieved.
, I like it a bit longer and go about 1/16 more than the directions.
(www.ghostinc.com) has for years been in the business of selling improved trigger connectors for docks, many of them with built-in overtravel
Most failures of Series 80 systems occurred because someone did a trigger job, installed a new trigger with a closely toleranced overtravel
stop, and reinstalled the Series 80 components.
