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.

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.

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.

      Vexilar makes many "fish finders" what model do you have. Is it a flasher, a graph, WiFi type. Will help in knowing what your looking at when running your finder.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff

      Ice forming in the dogs water dish right now! Forcast still looks good starting Tuesday. I predict the first truck thru the ice on Buffalo will be Dec 23!
