    Marlin 917v 17 trigger upgrade?

    Hey just wondering if I can get a looser trigger for my 17. Its already pretty accurate but I think I could shoot alot better groups with a looser trigger. Anyone know of an upgraded trigger for this gun?

    A loose trigger? could you explain what you mean by loose, or do you mean lighter or more crisp?

    A lighter trigger. A trigger I don't have to pull as hard to fire the gun.

    Ok, now that's more understandable. Not sure what rifle you have but most modern rifles do not have adjustable triggers but a gunsmith can make them better sometimes. Another way would to be to call MidwayUSA and see if Timney makes a replacement for your rifle that is adjustable.

    I have a Weatherby Vanguard that had a bad trigger and is common in that model, I contacted MidwayUSA and ordered a Timney for about $120 and had it on my porch in three days and installed and shooting that same day. They do see other brands and I wanted the Timney because I have used them before.

    That's what I put in this one ... made it slicker than owl poop. You just breath on this bad-boy and she goes ...

    I was able to stone the factory trigger on the 917vt that I recently won down to about 3 lbs in just a few minutes after disassembling the trigger from the action. The stoning dropped the trigger pull from about 6 lbs, and it was quite rough also. I finally got my Sweet 17 scope installed, but until the 40-50 mph winds die down, I haven't taken it out to see how it shoots.
