There are alternatives to the regular trigger (Rifle Basix) or as EPointer mentioned, mods you can perform! Don't think an accu-trigger would fit a non-accu-trigger model anyway!

Selling your current rifle to purchase one with an accu-trigger...FOOLISH advice!!!

Shottie is correct, the Accutriger will not fit the non accutrigger guns. The trigger mod is very simple and takes a few minutes to do. Just make sure you test it when you complete the mod.

You are an awful friendly guy??


Let me explain why selling is good advice.

You can buy a brand new rifle with the Accu-Trigger for $250.

Any replacement trigger is going to easily be $100 or more + having a smith put the new trigger in. Even if you could rework the old one it would cost $75 or more if done by a competent smith.

As a matter of fact Sharp Shooters Supply-who is probably the preeminent Savage gun smith out there. will not even do a trigger job on a rimfire Savage. He will only do the CF triggers. And his replacement trigger is close to $200.

So if you could sell your used rifle for any amount over $125 then you would not only get a new rifle with an Accu-Trigger, but you would also be money ahead. And being money ahead does not sound foolish to me---especially when you will also be getting a brand new rifle!! Tom.

A rifle Basix sear for a 93 costs over $90. And any reputable smith is going to charge at least $50 to put the sear in the rifle. So you think it is better advice to put a $150 trigger in a $250 rifle?? When you could buy an entirely new rifle with the trigger you want for $250?? And you say my advice is foolish?? You might want to rethink that one. Tom.

You do realize that the Rifle Basix DOES NOT necessarily NEED installation by a gunsmith, right?

You must ALSO be aware that the mods that can be performed DO NOT REQUIRE a gunsmith either, right?

As for Fred, he only manufactures CF triggers! How does that mean he won't do a trigger job on an RF? And as for $200 on his triggers...his Comp. trigger is $97 so you may want to do you homework a little better!

As for rethinking anything...nah...I stand by my comment! Re-crunch your numbers a little longer and you may find yourself re-thinking your comments!

First I would check out RimfireCentral. There may be some info on how to tune up the factory trigger. That would be the cheapest option.

The Accu-trigger is not as good as a good standard trigger like the Rifle Basic. You can get the poundage down by adjustment and some spring work but you may still have some creep.

I am thinking of replacing mine with the Rifle Basic to get all the adjustment I want. My Mark II is a good shooter and with a good trigger it would be even better.

BTW you do not need a gunsmith to replace the trigger. Just follow the instructions that come with it.

I just had him put his trigger on a Savage rifle. And it was not $200 as I said. It was $195. but if I add shipping then it would be over $200. I was also going to have him switch out the trigger on my 22 magnum as well. It is a LH model with the Accu-Trigger. This is where he said he did not work on the rimfires. Too much trouble.

Personally I am not a gunsmith. And I do not do trigger work on any rifle. IMO that is dangerous. Now I realize that alot of you guys are mechanical, and trigger work is not hard for you. But I would advise against the average guy from doing trigger work on any rifle. This is just my opinion. But I want my trigger work done by a professional.

I think my numbers add up pretty well. But even if I used your figure of just $100 then he could still sell his used rifle for $150 and still break even. And walk away with a brand new rifle with the trigger he originally wanted. So how is that bad advice??

I am sure you are friendly. I just found your comment to be a bit rude. Tom.
