The other day I adjusted my trigger on my XS7S. Turned the screw about 2-3 turns, until it felt good. Then went to where I shoot & checked the pull. About 3 lbs & felt pretty crisp. However, when I went to shoot the 1st time, it didn't fire. It dented the primer, but wouldn't fire. I turned the screw in 1/2 turn, which made the pull about 3 1/4 lbs, and it hasn't mis-fired since. I didn't think this would happen by just changing the adjusting screw. I didn't touch anything else. Any of you see this? How light have any of you got your triggers down to?

Mine is at 2 1/2 lbs according to my Rapala electronic fish scale and it is a little too light for hunting I think. No mis-fires. BTW, my primer strikes are quite shallow.

were they reloads? I have seen where the primer is seated too deeply, and it did just as you described. Both XS7S that are in the family came with 3.5lbs trigger pulls

This does not sound reasonable to me. Adjusting the trigger shouldn't affect the firing pin strike. Something else seems remiss.

I know, it doesn't make any sense, but that's what it did. I'm going to try backing off again & see if it happens again. The bullet w/ the dented primer fired after adjusting the trigger, as well as about a box of other re-loads.

It would've fired whether you adjusted the trigger or not. The two events are unrelated, pure coincidence.

Cheers,
