I just got my Geissele Match Rifle Trigger, Adjustable in from Midway and holly cow what instructions.Never seen on any posts about Geissele about that and the need to have a Quality Trigger Pull Gauge per instructions to set the amount of pull.Now i have to order a guage, anothet week of waiting.This is for my RRA Predator Pursuit that i only shoot benchrest with.
So if anybody else is going to do one ya need a trigger pull gauge!
Here are pics and look at that instruction sheet...heavy man! Two pages....

I just adjusted mine to the pull that I like. Never used a gauge.

Also you can use a bathroom scale a coat hanger and a bucket to make your own trigger pull gauge. Probably not as exact as a "quality trigger pull gauge" but at least you wouldn't have to wait a week for the gauge to come in. I like Ryos plan, just adjust it to what feels good, unless it has to meet certain requirements for competition etc.

I got it in.I still want to check the weight when the gauge gets here.I just followed the instructions and the part adjusting the sear was probably the hardest for me but i kept at it and got it.
Its AWESOME! I would say about 95% better then the RRA NM 2 Stage i had.I can really feel the first stage come to a stop, then snap and hammer drops.I have some time in the morning
and am heading to the range to try it out. Cool trigger.

Welcome to the fold.

BTW you can buy this with a close hanger.. and it's cheap. However it will take forever to arrive due to their shipping method. I have one for my luggage, but can't see why you could use it for the trigger.

Postal scale, heavy duty freezer bag, play sand, nylon coated coat hanger. Weigh sand in bag with wire for the entire weight you want. Wire through two holes in top of bag where the thick part is so it does not tear through. Adjust until it breaks to your liking. Make sure to return scale to who you borrowed it from. Deny seeing one of the wifes fancy hangers now cut and bent and stuck in bottom of trash can.

Go to grocery store. Have them weigh some cans of soda, or your choice. Do math. Use coat hanger and a plastic bag. Do math. Make dinner or drink contents. Much more accurate than the scales in the bathroom.

Geez, Walmart sells a fish scale that measures precisely in ounces for $5, a digital for $19.95. Seems easier.....

Just got back from the rifle range and that trigger is awesome.Not only can i feel the 1st stage take up to the 2 stage hold point I can also here it in my A2 Stock.I guess my ear protectors allow the sound from inside the reciever to resonate to my ear.Sweet awesome trigger.This is the trigger to get if anyone needs a good two stage.This Match Rifle is smoooth as silk.

Update; my Lyman elecronic trigger pull gauge came in.It will do a 10 pull average.The Geissele Match Rifle trigger average first stage is 2 lb 0.8 oz , second 3 lb 1.4 oz. The RRA NM 2 stage in my Tactical entry is first stage 3 lb 0.2 oz and second 6 lb 7.5 oz. So thats way differant feel.I like it. Just for fun i measured the Ruger mark 3 target and first is 1 lb 0.2 oz and 4 lb 0.9 oz second stage.
My tuned S&W 686 is 2 lb 3.1 oz final as hard to mesure double action hold point accurately.I have a Bill Springfield coming for the Tactical Entry and will mesure that too when i get it in.
Pic below for photo and not used in my average....

Ya know, I did mine with no attention to the weight of the trigger. Just put it in and adjusted the sear to accommodate the tolerances in the lower. Bingo –– best trigger on any of my gunz.

Of course, I understand one would want to know the weight of one's trigger pull if one was competing –– you know, National Match, Internet Keyboard Championship, etc.

I have the Match trigger as well, and the Lyman gauge, and my readings were just about the same. - Phil
