Trigger adjustment possible?

9 posts in this topic

Does anyone know if there is any kind of trigger adjustment that can be made on a Remmington model 7400? It seems like there is way too much trigger travel before the pin fires. Just curious. Thanks.

I have one of those lovely guns. smirk.gif I dont believe there is any adjustments that can be made. Maybe a gunsmith will know.

yah I know what you mean. It was a shot in the dark I guess. Maybe I'll take it in after the season. Too close to the opener now I'm afraid.

Thanks.

Many gunsmiths do not like to touch the triggers on Remington semi-autos. Liability concens I was told when I tried to have one tuned.

I understand what you mean - I have two older 742's and I hate the triggers. Creepy and draggy.

There are aftermartket triggger assemblies available. When I last considered one of them, it was over a decade ago. They were over 200 bucks then IIRC.

I finally bought a bolt gun in 1998 and have been very happy with it, though I do miss my 742 carbine when I am walking.

At 200 bucks it wouldn't be worth it to me. I'd just get a new gun. But I have a Muzzle loader on the list before I buy new rifle so I'll just live with it a bit longer. I've had the gun over 10 years already. Shot many deer but I've also been bungled by it once. mad.gif On a follow up shot (must have hit a branch or something on the first one) the second shell never loaded. I had the perfect spot picked, deer entered spot, pull trigger and nothing! mad.gifmad.gif

My dad bought my 7400 for me in '87 I think. It is a .270 Win. It has done nothing but jam since day one. Sometimes it wont eject and sometimes it wont load. It has been to a gunsmith a couple times and I get it back and it's the same thing. I wish I could fix it. But I will never sell it because my dad bought it for me and it is my first gun. never had any trigger problems, though.

It's an Autoloader right? You just jerk the trigger on those anyway don't ya? That's what all the guys I hunt with do that have Autos... smirk.gif

I would think a replacement trigger assembly would be available, try Brownell's. For those jamming issues, I've been told more times than not its the clip - either try a new one or find someone experienced with them to try to ID the prob. Later.

Thanks, Cooter. I will try a new mag. It's worth a shot.

      Drove all the way up to grindstone this morning from Forest Lake. As I'm driving along the shoreline, I can't stop admiring how beautiful of a day it is, and how great it will be to be on the water. Was totally amped up to fish for some trout! Then I pull up to the boat launch...and it's closed down! :mad: This dredging project has been pushed back for years, then they finally decide to do it on a beautiful sunny day, that I picked to come here...on the last day of the lake trout season nonetheless! Needless to say, I was very upset!

      I bet the state, not the political cronies, would get a lot more money by having the auction on the internet or allowing phone bids.  Heck, put them on the bay of E. 

      Actually DMV and DNR do quite well at their auctions. You win bid, You Pay, You own. No red tape, no collection process, simple and things seem to sell for quite a bit of money. Go and one see for yourself, its quite amazing. Lots of them at the Arden Hills DMV. Hard to collect money over the phone and on the internet. I do believe they will use the same auction process for this property sale as the DMV and DNR are good at it and a lot of buyers will be there. If the internet were to be used, the "political cronies" would need to create a bill, Ear Mark several million to develop a site, create an app, hire 40 to 50 people to manage and than increase taxes to cover the cost much like Obama Care Not a good plan. If your interested, go to auction, bring lots of money, win a bid and own.

      2016 MN auction schedule if your interested in going to one.

      They were dredging there today. Not sure if they are done or if it will take longer.

    • the weather has not been good this past week either, but fishing was still do able. Pike island is a popular spot and I am sure you can find fish there. Gold is. would be worth a try as would the area around the wolf pack. We had 4 nice walleye today and a great fish fry tonight. Heading home in the morning for the season. so good luck

    • I bet we will end up going to red trying to convince the couple guys that dont like sleepers for some reason that a 10x24 sleeper is just like a cabin and that we can bring 2 portables to bounce around if we want. Dont really need a guide ill probably allready have gone there 3-4 times before this trip.... Maybe superior will freeze good this year and I can convince them to go there i guess I just get kinda bored or red sometimes

      Well, got out of the hospital and rehab a couple of weeks ago, Its been a long haul went in on Feb 15, with some massive heart attacks.   Starting to feel better and have hit Fish a couple of times.  Thought I would check out the site and see if traffic has picked up,  Sorry to say not much different, a lot of lookers as usual and not a lot of posters

      Been there and done that.... Not the site but the hospital etc

      In northwest Wisconsin 26 hunting dogs have already been killed this late summer.   Already breaking the record of 23.  Be careful in the northland.

      I guess if you want it bad enough, you'll be there.

      "Oral" auction might be the law when it comes to this type of sale.

      At least one has most of the month of October to shop for recreational land.  Not like there's anything else going on this time of year! :grin:

      Thanks for posting, Rick.  It might be worth looking at that list.

      Thanks for the info!!! Will be up there on 10/5-10/8, have been looking at the weather and I hope they are wrong because looks like rain... Have you ever tried fishing out on pike island area? Brother inlaw drove down there this summer and said there were quiet a few people fishing there.
