Have you looked into a Sharp Shooter Supply trigger or another the such aftermakret triggers?Rifle Basix 'prolly makes one . . . I dunno . . . just a thought about getting past the Savage Accutrigger problem you have.Good Luck!Kevin

I've got a Rifle Basix in mine and it works great. :lol: It only took about twenty minutes to install it. Would have been ten minutes if I had read the instructions first! :rolleyes:

Hye, thanks guys. i found an excellent post from this same thread that I put on PM http://www.predatorm...=#Post52250905)Their is a simple Mod procedure described on their that can make your old style Savage trigger a "match trigger" for less than $3.00! I'm thinking that I will be trying that and save the $70 for a rifle basix trigger!Here is the direct link: http://www.rimfirece...ead.php?t=46774good stuph!

Yeah, I tried that first and it was c r a p.

"match trigger"

They must not know what a match trigger is then. But it is cheap I give you that. One of those times I proved to myself you get what you pay for. You can try it but you'll end up buying the Rifle Basix if you want a real trigger. You'll be out shooting it and your modified trigger will self modify and your gun won't work.

Not a substitute for a match trigger.But yes it is a good Mod and will improve the Trigger greatly.I did this Mod on the Savage 93 I had that Natual now has.It is very good, brakes fairly crisp at 2.75 lb.It is time consuming to do, but I like tinkering.And if done right will give you a very safe Trigger.But if you don't know what you are doing and are not sure of yourself, get an RB Trigger.

I did that shim trick to my Savage 93. It broke at 3#, very crisp and no creep. I was very astisfied with it..... UNTIL..... I pushed the safety off one day and it fired. Kinda surprised me!! :D The next time it did the same thing. :D :D Twice was too much. I installed the Rifle Basix sear before I shot it again. Now it breaks at 1&1/2# and I feel a LOT safer. I tinker all the time too but there are some things that I don't feel it's worth taking a chance on.
