Looking into a new savage, what are the pros and cons of the accu-trigger?
That's what I told Stogey as well. But, I've been shooting Glocks for 18 years!Harrysigafoo said:It is like a Glock, trigger safety.

I have a savage Accu-trigger, on a heavy barrel 22 RF.
First it is too heavy when set at it's lowest, about 2.6 pounds. It can't be adjusted lower.
Second it requires two things to be pulled, including a skeleton thin piece of metal, looks like it will be catching on brush etc. It has a safety, I don't need another one. It is like a Glock, trigger safety.
Third I've studied the design in great detail. Just review their patents if you wish. It is too complicated for any gunsmith to work on and expect the trigger to be safe. Maybe Savage made it for this purpose.
Fourth, replacement triggers are very expensive. No spring kits available.
Fifth the internal parts are like a kids toy, not robust like the gun industry. Looks to be made by Daisy.
Same, and my son likes it!PADingo said:That's what I told Stogey as well. But, I've been shooting Glocks for 18 years!Harrysigafoo said:It is like a Glock, trigger safety.
ON a personal note: I have no issues with the accutrigger.
I have Savages with and without. The .270 I bought for my son last years has it.

Pro: They save Savage money for lawyers and for some reason people like them.
I guess compared to their old trigger its an improvement, but in my opinion Winchester and Remington both have better triggers.
