View Full Version : Savage BTV Trigger

02-14-2008, 04:35 PM
I have a Savage BTV in .22lr with the accu-trigger. I have lightened the pull as far as the factory adjustment will allow. Its about 3 pounds now I would like to get it down to 1 pound or slightly under 1 pound. Any suggestions for mods? Do I have to buy a Rifle Basix trigger ?

No personal experience here, but I have seen guys that used a lighter weight spring to lighten their triggers. I have shot a 17 with the SSS trigger. http://www.sharpshootersupply.com/ It was very sweet for a rimfire. I have a couple of the SSS centerfire triggers. Very please with them. I don't own a Savage RF or I would consider one of the SSS for it.

luck, tiny

No light springs for the rimfires, you can cut a coil or two off, but beware savage will not sell you a spring, so if it gets goofed up I dont know what you can do, but I even doubt you can get a pull around 1 lb or less with an accu-trigger.

I would say your are stuck with either a rifle basix or a SSS trigger.
