Which is why I stated earlier in this thread that I shouldn't have posted this in the first place. I often forget that some things that seem simple and easy to me, are only simple and easy because I have been doing it for so long.

yes you are right mate,and yes i agree if you are not mechanically minded and or dont uderstand entirely about what you need to do,if you dont have the correct or capable tools,if you havent been able to find out everything that you need to know in detail about the job you would like to carry out,if there is any doubt in your mind what so ever then you are not confident or competent in proceeding and i would recommend that you use your local gunsmith.

Default Lightens trigger

To me, the drawing makes it perfectly self-evident as to what "part" needed to be worked on, and "where", but I have been doing trigger jobs for the last 25 years. I guess what I was easily able to see, isn't quite so obvious to people who do not have experience in that area.

I would have answered a P.M., and given the exact instructions. I just didn't want to broadcast it, then have a bunch of people mess their triggers up.

Would you be so kind to P.M. me with the exact instructions.
Or you can e-mail me at pwvorster@vodamail.co.za.

Regards
Pieter

Well, I have tried to make contact with 4064fan, without success!
On my PM's I don't get any response.

I took the trigger apart and polish the different planes of the actuator.
At the moment my trigger pull is 1 lb. Perfect!

Is it because I am a newcomer to this forum that nobody responded to my posts?

No Pieter, it's probably because this thread was 9 months old when you posted on it welcome to the forums!

Franklin is right. the thread is almost two years old and it looks like the OP hasn't even been on the forum in quite some time.

welcome to FTF and stop over in the Introductions Section and say hello to everyone.

Pieter, What are you shooting? I'm planning on heading over towards you some day. I just might stay. My Classic Mausers need to go to where they belong.

My favourite rifle is a 7mm Tombi. It is a gun which resembles an Ackley (wildcat), but developed in South Africa for the powder we are using. I am shooting a 168 gr bullet at about 2780 ft/s. Very accurate and I am shooting, depending on conditions, up to 350 meters cumfortably. It can go further, but I don't.
My other rifle, for every day use, is a .308 Howa 1500 Varminter. Also very accurate. 168 bullet at 2670 ft/s. Use it mainly for paper shooting. The trigger was very hard, but I got it right.
I am reloading my own ammo and shoot twice a week (Wednesdays and Saturdays).
What caliber are your Mausers?
Regards
Pieter

Pieter, Mausers: 1 M38 Swede 6.5x55, 1 M96 Swede 6.5x55, 1 M1600 Husqvarna Small ring '98 6.5x55, 1 640 Husqvarna 8x57, 1 M46a Husqvarna 9.3x57, 1 M24/47 8x57, 1 1945 Bruno K98k topped w/ a Zeiss Zeilvier, low turret mounts 8x57, CZ527 Varminter 5.56/.223.
What length barrel on the Howa?? I have a Howa 1500 heavy barrel in .308, 22" barrel. With 168gr match bullets, it is easily a 700 yard rifle. I like to shoot up to 400 yards these days. It really likes IMI or LC surplus 147gr., cheap to shoot at targets. I hand load 150gr Barnes, 165gr Prvi, and 168gr Match for it.
