Are you chasing an aftermarket trigger or just trying to adjust the one you have?

the one i have is set to 1.5kg,id like to lighten to 1kg.
the triggers ive seen on the net dont look anything like mine.
some are close,but still not the same.
i could go aftermarket but i really dont want to unless this trigger has a problem.
the davies trigger needs to have the stock inletted to fit.
so..im on the hunt for info from those in the know ...

regards

My memory of the Musgrave trigger is that it was originally designed for around 1.5kg. That being so the spring was rather small and stiff --to stiff to get down to 1 kg and possible 1/2 kg ( shortly )
Not much you can do, as to really fix it a much lighter spring is required.
From memory there was not much room within the housing to fit a larger diameter lighter spring but having said that if you care to send the trigger to me ( Davies triggers ) I will give you an idea of what can be done --no obligation.

I've just found the Littleton stamp on the action.
The trigger is different from those I've seen.
which of the 3 adjusters is trigger pull ?
i suspect the one closest to the action is sear engagement ? yes ?

No, not one of mine.
Looks like a factory supplied unit.
