There are a few things you can do to adjust the trigger on your Remington 710.
- First, take a look at the trigger itself and see if there are any obvious adjustments you can make.
- Second, consult your gun’s manual or another trusted source on how to properly adjust your particular model’s trigger.
- And third, if you’re still having trouble adjusting the trigger, consider taking it to a professional gunsmith for help.
Now, let’s discuss each of these steps in more detail.
- Take a look at the trigger itself and see if there are any obvious adjustments you can make. The most common adjustment you can make is to the screw that holds the trigger in place. By loosening or tightening this screw, you can adjust the amount of pressure required to pull the trigger.
- Consult your gun’s manual or another trusted source on how to properly adjust your particular model’s trigger. This is important because each model of gun is different and you don’t want to damage your gun by making an incorrect adjustment.
Adjusting the trigger on a Remington 710 is a pretty simple task that only requires a few tools and some patience. First, you’ll need a Phillips head screwdriver and a small flat head screwdriver. Next, locate the two screws on the bottom of the trigger assembly- these are what you’ll be adjusting.
If you’re adjustment is for an older gun or you’re just not sure what the default settings are, it’s always best to start by screws in until they’re snug. That way, you can slowly back them out until you find the setting that works best for you.
Once you have the tools and know where the screws are, the actual adjustment process is pretty straightforward. Start by unscrewing the trigger stop screw (the one on the right when looking at the gun from the front) about a quarter turn. This will give you some wiggle room to adjust the trigger without having to worry about it slipping out of place.
Next, use your small flat head screwdriver to lightly press down on the sear spring tab (located just above the trigger on the left side). As you do this, use your other hand to slowly squeeze the trigger until you hear/feel a click. This indicates that the sear has caught on the hammer notch- stop squeezing at this point and hold both the trigger and the screwdriver in place.
Now, use your Phillips head screwdriver to turn the trigger adjustment screw (the one on the left when looking at the gun from the front) clockwise until it stops. You should hear/feel a second click as the sear catches on the second hammer notch- if you don’t, continue turning the screw until you do. Once you’ve found this spot, back the screw out about a quarter turn. This will give you some room to fine-tune the trigger without making it too light.
If you want a lighter trigger, turn the screw counter-clockwise until you reach the desired setting. If you want a heavier trigger, turn the screw clockwise. It’s important to note that you should only make very small adjustments at a time- large changes can result in an unsafe gun. Once you’ve found the setting you’re happy with, recheck the trigger by squeezing it slowly until you hear/feel the sear catch on the hammer notch.
Once you’re satisfied with the trigger pull, replace the trigger stop screw and tighten it down. Be careful not to overtighten- just snug it up until it’s flush with the surface of the trigger assembly. And that’s it! You’ve now successfully adjusted the trigger on your Remington 710.
Here’s a quick rundown of what you’ll need to do:
First, disassemble the gun completely. Next, remove the sear from the gun using a drift punch or other similar tool. Take care not to damage the sear during this process.
Once the sear is removed, you can begin filling it down using a fine-toothed file. Start with light strokes and gradually increase pressure as you go. You’ll want to focus on getting an even shape all around; avoid uneven or jagged edges. Remember, it’s important not to overdo it – you can always take more off, but you can’t put it back on.
When you’re satisfied with the shape of the sear, reassemble the gun and test it out. With a little patience and attention to detail, you should be able to get a cleaner, smoother trigger pull.
The first thing you need to do is identify which type of trigger you have. There are two main types of triggers on the Remington 710 – the factory trigger and the aftermarket trigger.
If you have the factory trigger, there is a set screw located behind the gripping area of the trigger. This set screw adjusts the amount of travel that the trigger has before it hits the sear. If you tighten this screw, it will reduce the amount of travel and make the trigger lighter. Conversely, if you loosen this screw, it will increase travel and make the trigger heavier.
Remington 710 trigger adjustment is a simple process that can be completed in just a few minutes. First, remove the magazine and make sure the chamber is empty. Next, locate the screw on the rear of the trigger guard. With a small screwdriver, loosen this screw until it can be turned by hand.
Now, depress the trigger and hold it in place while you turn the screw clockwise or counterclockwise to adjust the tension on the trigger. For a lighter trigger pull, turn the screw clockwise; for a heavier pull, turn it counterclockwise. Once you’ve attained the desired pull weight, retighten the set screw and reassemble your firearm.
That’s all there is to it! With just a few minutes and a small screwdriver, you can easily adjust the trigger pull on your Remington 710.
