Thanks

Thank you for the info on the trigger.

I pulled out the #36 spring. The trigger pull is now under 1Lb. Which would be fantastic from the bench.

I ordered 3 different springs from Fastenal to try as a replacement for the original. I am hoping for a 2Lb trigger pull to use in the field while small game hunting.

I will post the results and part numbers right here in a few weeks after some testing.

rclark will become famous soon enoughrclark will become famous soon enough
I just noticed this new rifle. Cool. And has fixed sights and is a bolt action like the 77/22!!!!! Awesome. So, no need for a 'scope' . Going to have to keep a look out. To bad not a wood stock though .

No Problem,
I was surprised to hear it went down to 1lb. Of course your only the third person I know of including myself to try it. I am happy with mine at 2lbs. maybe more people will report what they got. It's an easy mod.

Picked up a compact in 22mag last week. Figured i would share my results and feeling on this rifle. The rife has a nikon 4x32 with warn rings on Weiver #12. i find the gun to be a touch heavy even for the short version but well balanced. Points very quick. Would prefer a sport barrel. trigger is phenomenal. Very crisp. I feel its better than my savage 93 with accutrigger. I'm a lefty and this is my first right handed bolt gun. Not being too barrel heavy made bolt manipulation very easy and quick.

I was very pleased with accuracy. The rifle was sighted in using CCI maxi mag 30gr. 2200fps at 50 yards. I was using an old wobbly table with cheep plastic chair and my ammo bag for a rest. I assume with a better rest and proper gear this gun has very good potential to be a tack driver. I shot 5 different rounds. the best being the CCI V-max 30gr. polymer tip. 5 rounds group came in at under 1/2 an inch. Worse was the Hornady V-max 30gr. at 1.75". When my pictures upload i will post my results.

Man that looks good without the web! Looks like a nice even spray sir! Did you do the spring removal trigger job people are talking about.
