    HELP--New Remlin in.44 mag has an atrocious trigger pull

    This Remlin was mf'd around 2016 and is nice looking, and feeds RNFP lead boolits well, but the trigger pull is so hard "that I have to put both feet against the shooting bench and pull with all my strength to get the gun to fire"! Well, perhaps that's a slight exaggeration, but it is quite heavy for a guy who is used to 2 to 3 lb pulls. This rifle buries the gauge! What is the easiest fix?

    The easiest fix is the happy trigger by WWG sold by just about everyone. The best and less expensive fix is to take it to a competent gun smith to do a trigger job.

    Agreed with 4mynra. It's a pretty straight forward and easy to install and you instantly get a huge reduction in trigger pull.

    This ^^^^^

    I did my own on a 35 I bought. It was scratchy and rough. It took a few times of trail and error but its way smoother now and about 3 pounds.
    Thanks dad for taking me hunting.

    There are several good posts in the gunsmithing section about doing your own trigger job. The tools I used were a good flat stone, a magic marker and a magnifying visor. I spent less than 2hrs on the first trigger.

    I did two 1894 triggers myself. One blue and one stainless. Go slow, and take off the absolute minimum of steel. Did I mention go slow and careful? My triggers are great now, as crisp and smooth as a nice bolt action.

    Before you go changing anything, try to lighten the trigger spring, the long leg on the spring, by putting a slight kink in it. It has 2 legs, one for the trigger safety block, and one for the trigger weight-of-pull. Bend upward SLIGHTLY the leg to the trigger. If that doesn't help, break out the stones and files. Take your time, you'll be OK. Read the gunsmithing posts carefully.

    ..with a correct set of gunsmithing screwdrivers, cleaning/lubrication product of your choice and a good pair of reading/safety glasses - go to the stickies - get back with us and tell us about the improvements...

    improvements you accomplish yourself are almost ALWAYS a satisfying endeavor - and you learn along the way!

    Does the "happy trigger" address the loose play in the trigger. Mine is very loose in it's take up.
