96/22 Trigger Slicking

I've just bought my first "real" (powder-burning) rifle and it's a Ruger 96/22. I really like it, but one thing is really irritating: that ludicrously heavy trigger...

Now, if'n it was a 10/22, then I'd just drop in some sort of after market part or get the existing one "fettled". With a 96/22, of course, things are a bit different.

I'm quite happy to fettle a trigger myself, *if* I've a good understanding of how to get it apart and put it back together again. The trouble is, I've not found much in the way of instructional videos on the 'net. Yes, I can take the action out and take the bolt off, but I've not come across any videos that take it any further. Neither have I seen any animations, or whatever, to show how the trigger works.

Can anyone point me to some "fount of all knowledge" regarding the 96/22's trigger?

Thanks.

Regards,

Mark.

Ahlman's in Morristown, MN did the trigger job on my 96/22M. There is no drop-in fix for it.

I got both my 22 and 22mag 96 models triggers done by local gun shop & they were by far better once the factory brick weight was tidied up. Sorry apart from the easy found 96 model utube vids there very little on detail trigger work to be found..

OK, thanks guys. It looks like I'm on me own.

Could be time to badger Ruger with an email, but I'd be surprised if I get any joy, there...

Regards,

Mark.

Thanks. Perhaps I'll send him a PM and ask him whether he'd be prepared to tell me how to do it myself. (I think it's about time that there was a YouTube video about fettling a 96's trigger.)

Mark.
