Anyone know where I can find info on the net for doing a trigger job on an M1A/M14?
Look under M14/M1A Shop Services.
I recently had them do a trigger job for me. Yoou just send in your trigger group. I got mine back about 10 days after I sent it to them. Price is $35 + return shipping. IMHO, it's $35 well spent. My trigger pull is now about 3.5 - 4 lbs. Much better than it originally was.
if Fulton set that trigger at 3.5 to 4lbs they are outof their minds... I seriously doubt that anyone in the business would set a semi-auto trigger that low... so easy to get doubles.........
I'm an ex-military armorer and,I can tell you
that it is possible if the trigger and sear
engagement is not set back to far.Mine is set
at 3.75 lbs and works great (I did the work
myself).Never had a doubler in 18,650 rds.Just
because match specs call for 4.5lbs doesn't
mean it can't be done.Just don't go below
3.5lbs (if done right) and you won't have
problems.But, if you go to shoot a match where
they check the trigger,you'll be
rejected.DON"T USE GREASE ON THE TRIGGER
GROUP!!!!!!!! Doublers are caused from more
people usung grease in their trigger groups
than anything else.
Almost forgot.I shoot high master class in 4
position and 600 prone matches.
I had more of do it yourself in mind. I just want to take some of the creep out of it. I feel I'm capable of doing this myself.
The only way to eliminate any amount of creap is to make the trigger adjustable.This should be done by someone who knows how.
If you do it wrong you'll buy another trigger or worse.Keep 1 thing in mind.Most,if not all military rifles are (and will always be)a 2 stage trigger.
The only way to get away from a 2 stage is to buy an aftermarket such as Timney,Shilen,etc.
Yes,I know they're not available for the M14-M1A unless of course you want to pay $200.00 for a Radar (not worth it).
There is a better solution to the radar and much less expensive (about $5.00 for parts).This is a secret kept amoung armorers though.
If you want to know about it I can send a private email.Keep this in mind also.A 2 stage trigger has it's benefits because you always know where the let-off is (also a built in safety).
So bottom line is,you can have less creap and a much better trigger pull.I charge $55.00 to smooth trigger and make it adjustable as well.
Some guys have 2 trigger groups.1 for match shooting and 1 for the range (just a suggestion).Not all good things are expensive.Let me know what you decide.
