EZ Pull Trigger Assist

Recommended Posts

HateHumminbird

Does anybody know much about this product, or preferably, actually used one?

It's sold as a means of reducing trigger pull without getting your trigger re-worked or replaced. Anybody know what this type of work costs? The trigger assist runs about $40.

Thanks for any information.

I typed it into google with no results.

I am trying to imagine how this would work.

I'm thinking it must be like a pulley system where the doubling up reduces the work???

I don't know and I'm just guessing by looking at the website. I'd never heard of or seen such a thing before.

Let us know how it works out, eh? Seems to be a fairly simple lever device - but the "technical" details on the website leave a lot to be desired.

For an quick and easy fix for minor trigger issues, or to make the crisp ones feel even lighter, a trigger shoe can help. It is basically a chunk of metal or plastic that you attach directly to the trigger, which is wider than the factory trigger and gives you a larger surface area for the trigger finger. I used to have one on my target rifle, and installed one on my varmint gun.

Interesting, very interesting.

If I had a bolt gun, I would be more inclined to go with an aftermarket trigger by Timney.

I do have a couple of older Remington 742 semi-autos, and I am intrigued to maybe try one of these. I absolutely hate the triggers on these guns, and a lot of gun-smiths won't touch them. You can get aftermarket triggers, but they are rather expensive.

I think this would be cool on a shotgun for turkey hunting too.

The one question I have is this: If the existing trigger is alreay full of creep and draggy, how does this unit eliminate that?

Why not just take it to a gunsmith? The last gun I took in for trigger work was less than 100 bucks if I remember right. I was pleased with the work and I am confident with it. I get a little worried about add on stuff if you know what I mean!

The problem on my two turkey guns is that the trigger is quite crisp, like alot of shotgun or "snap-shooters" prefer. It's like I have to break a mm-thick icicle between the back of the trigger and trigger guard! Ok, maybe I'm exaggerating a bit. grin.gif

Any prices on a trigger re-work, or one of the new timneys? I'm sure I could look it up, but wondering if you know off-hand? I think the effectiveness of this product will more directly relate to dollars and cents in comparison to above options vs. actual operability.

Thanks guys!

Timney triggers run in the 60-100 dollar range, depending upon the gun and model.

Just checked out the website and I must say that is one cool invention. It adds length to the trigger and thus makes it easier to apply force to the hammer release machinism: it is easier to turn a bolt with a long rench than it is with a short one.

Just got one I ordered in the mail. I'll give it a whirl and let you know what I find out.

So I finally got a chance to try the dang thing out and I'm quite pleased.

Like almostthere said, "easier to turn a bolt with a long wrench than a short one."

I installed it on a Winchester semi-auto .22 I've had since I was a kid. The trigger was about the heaviest pulling one I had on any gun I own, and the EZ Pull softened it up substantially. While I haven't yanked it off and put it on one of my bigger hunting guns, I think the thing works very well.

It's solid enough to be a long-term solution by using a bit of loc-tite, and temporary enough to leapfrog from gun to gun if you'd so choose. Best part for me was that it's cheaper than a trigger re-work and much cheaper than buying a timney or whole new trigger mechanism.

They don't work on all firearms I've been told (trigger guard is too wide on certain firearms to install), so I'd check with them if interested in putting it on a specific gun. All in all I think the thing is worth checking out!

quote about a barstool i invented the ez pull trigger assist because i can change this product from rifle to rifle or to a shotgun without doing a trigger job on each individual firearm even though i have completed more than 40 yeasr of trigger jobs i can improve a quality trigger 50% without taking the bolts out of the action which changes the point of impact when retightening even when they are installed with a torque wrench things are not the same i wish i could install one on your rifle because i enjoy being able to see a person who is completely satisfied with this produdct i can machine the gears on a watch or any firearm that i have been in contace with i do not know about wholes under bar stools or how to put dots or capitols on sentences but i love to shoot and reload best wishes iggy

      Our last trip last year required driving through a snow storm! But that time of year is special!

      Will fish around Paynesville, Cass Lake and maybe Osakis.  I generally fish right up to freeze up/firearms deer season in the boat.

      Hello from the NW Angle!   Minnesota walleye fishing has been great using bottom bouncers and a night crawler. Anglers are being selective to fill limits with 16-18” fish as well as a few over 28 released. Most success has been in the mud, off of structure in 21-23 feet and 26-30 feet. The largest fish seem to come from South of Garden Island on crank-baits.   Canadian walleye are also most effectively targeted with bottom bouncers and spinners. Depth has not been as important as being at the bottom of a break line in the flat. Gold with chartreuse has been best as of late.  Musky activity has slowed from the prior weeks but expect it to ramp up with the full moon approaching. Perch have been schooled up on and around reefs topping out around 30 feet.   Water temps remain consistently in the low to mid 70’s.    Remember - fall is the time for trophy fish up at the NW Angle!   Until next week,   Sunset Lodge

      I am spending Labor Day week on Kabetogama with my wife. Never been to Kab before so I am looking forward to hopefully figuring out a new lake with good multi-species potential. Any tips from anybody would be appreciated. After that it will be the anticipation of late October and Rainy River! That is probably my favorite trip of the year.

      A project to improve long-term water quality and wildlife habitat on Pelican Lake in Wright County may cause some short-term inconvenience for waterfowl hunters this fall, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.  The public water access managed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service on the west side of Pelican Lake will not be usable for boats larger than a canoe or kayak, due to lower water levels created by a drawdown of the lake. While boats may be launched from the state-managed public water access on the southwest side of the lake, parking there is limited. Parking is not allowed within the immediate ramp area; it also is prohibited along the shoulders of 40th Street Northeast, the adjacent road. The DNR is in the process of designing and constructing a new public boat access on the northwest corner of Pelican Lake.  The project will be started in the fall, but likely will not be completed this year. Some private lake access may be available by arrangement with local landowners; contact DNR area wildlife manager Fred Bengtson for more information: 320-223-7840. Pelican Lake is in the middle of a multi-year drawdown aimed at improving water quality and creating better habitat for waterfowl and other wildlife. Once considered a waterfowl mecca, slowly rising water levels over some 30 years had killed much of the aquatic vegetation that stabilizes shoreline and provides needed food for migrating ducks. With help from Ducks Unlimited and constitutionally dedicated money from the Legacy Fund, an outlet was created for the lake in 2014 to lower water levels in several stages, with a pumping facility added in 2016. The drawdown will allow soils to consolidate and promote the growth of aquatic vegetation needed by ducks for food and habitat. In addition to providing critical waterfowl habitat, the project also will result in significantly cleaner water. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      I have a metal roof on my house near Cook, I installed it about thirteen years ago still looks/works great. Replaced my shingled roof at home(Pine Island) last year, the shingles lasted 17 years before they were lookin pretty tough. That would be twice I've replaced shingles at home in 35 years.   The major problem I have with steel is when the snow melts off of the roof, it will all come off at one time. If your car, or the door you use to get in and out of your house is under the eave's, you WILL have an issue. Last spring enough snow came off of my roof in one melting, that it would have buried, and I'm sure crushed my truck. The snow drift after that melting was about 10' wide, and 4' deep. You better plow it right away, or you will have an ice drift that you cannot remove. The only other issue, is that when it rains it really runs off of the roof. You will get wet standing under the eaves of your house. The rain come's off in sheets.  You could use gutters or deflectors, but the snow coming off in the spring will also remove your gutters/deflectors, guaranteed. A door on the gable end of your house will take care of the rain and snow problem.   Other than that I think the steel roof is great, it is easy to apply, and is guaranteed for 40 years. I don't plan on ever using shingles again, have converted most of my buildings to steel! With shingles you might get 20 years, then you get to hire somebody to come out, and replace your shingles again. LOL And NO, it is not so loud in my house when it rains, that you can't hear yourself think. LOL And No, I don't sell/install steel roofing, I'm just sold on the stuff.   I can't recommend a good or fair roofer/contractor, I do my own work. I can recommend a good/fair electrician/concrete guy. If you pm me, I'll tell you a plumber NOT to hire.   Jim

      RLG, good to hear and I think that's one of the most important tips I've learned from this forum. Trust your electronics!
