Before adjusting the Remington 700 trigger, it’s important to be familiar with all about guns and ammunition.

There are a variety of factors that can affect how the trigger functions:

  • the weight of the pull,
  • the size of the trigger blade,
  • how much slack is in the trigger.

Different rifles will also require different adjustments.

1. The first thing you’ll want to do is inspect your rifle to identify any potential problems. Once you’ve identified any potential problems, you can begin making adjustments to the Remington 700 trigger. Be sure to always wear eye protection when working with firearms.

2. Start by slowly easing off some of the tension on the spring until there’s just a little bit of slack in the trigger before firing.

3. You can also try adjusting the set screw that controls the trigger’s let-off.

If you’re still having problems, it’s best to consult a gunsmith or other firearms expert.

To adjust the Remington 700 trigger, you will need a screwdriver. The screws that you need to adjust are located on the back side of the trigger. There are two screws that you will need to adjust, and they are both located near the center of the trigger. You can use your screwdriver to turn these screws in either direction to adjust them.

When you are adjusting these screws, be sure not to over-tighten them. If you tighten them too much, it can damage the screw and make it difficult to adjust later on. It is also important to note that adjusting these screws can affect the way your gun fires, so be sure to test it out after making any adjustments.
