Canjar triggers

I just picked up a Rem 788 .223 with a canjar trigger. Does anyone have any info on this trigger. How to set it?

Re: Canjar triggers

I believe you push the blade forward.

Re: Canjar triggers

Canjar triggers are great triggers......I have 4 or 5 of them...... they are no longer made, but they were basically top of the line when they were being produced............If it is a set trigger, the outside part of the blade should move back and forth on the center portion(what I would call the post) to set it, you should just have to flip it forward........If you are looking for instructions on how to adjust it, that is a different story, and you would have to find a set of instructions here somewhere......

Re: Canjar triggers

I have a Canjar on a 788 Remington. To set it, push it forward. I never use the set feature because it's still a pretty good trigger without using it.

Re: Canjar triggers

Does anyone have instruction for this trigger? The company is out of business.

Re: Canjar triggers

I believe the srew on the bottom is the tigger pull or weight screw. Turning the screw in, or clockwise increases the weight of pull. The srew in the middle of the rear side of the trigger is the sear adjustment, and the screw in the front side, is the trigger stop or overtravel adjustment.

You can probably find some instructions elsewhere if you google it

Re: Canjar triggers

Canjar's instructions were rifle-specific....Many parts of the instruction are/were somewhat universal, though....I have Canjar single-set trigger instructions for Ruger 77s and will be happy to send them to you if you PM your email address.....

Re: Canjar triggers

Canjar triggers are excellent. The only problem is if it ever needs repair, you might be out of luck. When Mr Canjar died, he took the majority of know-how with those triggers with him. On the good side, I highly doubt you will ever have any trouble. I know of a handful of guns that are on their 5th or 6th barrel and still have the Canjar trigger in them that went in from square one.
