Remington 700 Trigger Adjustment
(Adjust trigger at your own risk! Improperly adjusted truggers can result in unexpected discharges. Always keep firearms pointed in a safe direction!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

Hi Mountain Man, Jay Gorski here, I'll try to talk you through how to do this trigger work.First you'll need a set of small screw drivers, 2nd, take off the crap they put over the adj. screws except for the one on top front of the assy. 3rd, Put a little gun oil over(in) the screw holes to loosen them up, and spray some Tri-flon or synthetic gun oil on the inside of the assy. so it won't get dried out in there. work them in and out a little bit. Now , go to the side that has two screws on it, front side, The bottom screw is your adjustment for weight, turn it out 1/2 to 3/4 turn or so, check your triggerpull a bunch of times, should be quite a bit lighter, but you may have some creep, If you do and you will more than likely, cock your bolt and then turn the screw on the back side of the trigger assy.(slowly) in until the pin goes forward, now turn it back about 1/2 turn, cock bolt and check for creep, if you still get creep, turn in a little at a time( while the firing pin is back)and check for creep. Then if you want a lighter pull yet, go back and forth with the weight screw (bottom front)and the engagement screw on the back side until you get a safe pull with no creep. You should be able to get it to around 2lbs or a little less if you got a good trigger, my sons WSSF would only go to 2.75lbs. so I switched triggers with a buddy that put a Jewell on his Rem. Just remember, the back screw(engagement) controls how much creep and engagement you'll have, of course. If you lighten the trigger(Bottom front Screw)counter-clockwise some more, the engagement screw will have to be turned in more. Then you'll have to check to make sure it's safe when you throw the bolt forward. Jay (NOTE: Taken from forum on Benchrest.Com.)
