Thnx for the replies. DD i'm gonna try to work on that thing to relieve a little of the creep. I'll have to make it a rainey day project. Right now the crappie are calling my name and the weather is beautiful.
Thanks again <")))><
DD, was watching this thread and wanted to break in and say thanks also. had a bit of creep(not a lot just a touch) i found that the whole trigger housing was lose, but i took it off and took a quick look, put it back on and its gone. do you work over the sears on your rifles? if you do how do you get to the sears? well thanks again.
Rain and wind made it an easy time to work on the trigger. Yes, the trigger housing was a bit loose on the action. Took it out and checked it over. Sear and trigger were square with each other. Sprayed the sear and trigger surfaces with DRY MOLLY LUBE, DRY FIRED IT NUMEROUS TIMES, RESPRAYED WITH LUBE. Shazam, shazam. No more creep. Crisp, clean, 3 lb trigger pull. That molly lube is some good stuff. Might work on yours.
I'm not certain about the case lube, but I can recommend the dry molly lube. It's good where any two pieces of metal join and calls for some sort of lube. I find that there is always some place that it can be used on a firearm. It's kinda my go to lube.........<")))><
