Re: Savage Triggers
I can not remember the forum I read it on, and it was for the Savage 200, I would guess itís the same set up for the Axis. In any case a guy on that form made a lighter trigger pull by replacing the factory spring with one he made from a smaller size piece of piano wire.
I ask a gunsmith I know and he said yes he had done this and it worked out well. This was 3 or 4 years ago and he said itís a $10.00 fix at the time.
He did say you could have warranty issues by changing the spring.
Basix and Timney trigger groups can be costly. I am not recommending this just passing along information.
I donít own a Savage edge rifle, I do own two Savage Stevens 200s, The one did have an issue with the trigger, however over time it lightened up on its own.
