Mosin Trigger – Thoughts?
« on: April 12, 2012, 10:38:50 am »


The pin serves as a roller bearing.

The design cannot be patented as the Finns were doing something very similar back in '39.

What do you think?

    looks like you are adding friction to the trigger. I've worked many a mosin trigger and the biggest gains are by polishing the friction causing surfaces and then applying slipstream "liberal"  You wont lighten anything there (that's all in the spring,  and it wont improve trigger break (that's in the geometry between the trigger and the bolt)

    It may make a slight improvement in consistency, but i've never seen that to be a problem with the mosin trigger.

    Hello,

    I'm actually removing friction.

    The trigger has become a race with the pin being a needle bearing.
