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.

      Another week has come and gone up here at the Angle. The weather sure changed for us up here. The week started with below zero temps and we ended the week in the 30's with some rain mixed in. It still didn't affect the fishing, as houses produced their limits of fish once again including a 31", 11 pound walleye! On the Minnesota side, we still have our houses scattered all around in 22-28 feet of water. Gold, pink and green were the best, tipped with a minnow or minnow head. We have had perch and saugers mixed in with all the walleyes, too! On the Canadian side, the crappie and walleye bite has been very good! Crappies have been in 28-33 feet of water. Only fish to your limit and then switch to another species’ for the rest of the day. Walleyes have been great in 22-29 feet, using the same colors as the Minnesota side, tipped with a minnow or minnow head. This is Forrest Huset with another fishing report. We hope to see you all at Sunset Lodge this winter!

      Gophers are turning the program the right direction... getting Coffey to come really opened eyes of local kids to consider the U... Hope they keep it up. Great game with WI... lost in OT but really well played game by both sides.

      Yes fair amount of water/slop on the ice.  Would suggest getting houses jacked up prior to freeze.
