Like reading these posts even if they are years old,Anyone in the U.S.M.C. from my days remembers BRASS, 67-to 71 M-14. Breath, Relax,SLACK,Squeeze.take up slack slow till you feel the pressure on the trigger then squeeze and it should be a big surprise when the rifle goes off.That's for all the people who can't buy a timmy for your rifle.We will talk about the M-16 trigger another day.
What is creep in a trigger?
Creep is the detectable movement of a trigger that doesn't result in the release of the sear. Good triggers have no detectable creep. An average single-stage trigger may have just a single spot of movement/creep, while a poor one moves and pauses, moves and pauses several times before release.
What is the sear (pull) in a trigger?
The sear is the part of the trigger mechanism that holds the hammer, striker, or bolt back until the correct amount of pressure has been applied to the trigger; at which point the hammer, striker, or bolt is released to discharge the weapon.
