Default T/C trigger jobs?

How many of you guys got a trigger job done on your T/C Encores. I have a Pro Hunter and I'm thinking I may get it done. Just curious if it would be worth it or not?

I would be interested to know this as well as I have just setup an Encore for this season. The trigger is stiff. There isn't any real travel or creep, but would be nice if it was lighter. Same for my Knight Revolution.

Mike Bellm has a lot of solutions for the Encore trigger.

I use his #4 trigger spring and it reduced the trigger pull down to 2 3/4#.

It will vary a little on every receiver. My other receiver ended up around 3#.

Replace the trigger spring and adjust the overtravel screw and your good to go.

Bellm TC all the way. I had it done to my Prohunter and it's great. Factory trigger is WAY TOO STIFF.

A good trigger is a key to accurate shooting. Even a great rifle can cause the shooter a headache if it has a bad trigger. Have you tried talking to T/C about the stiff trigger?

My Encore came with a trigger that breaks like glass at 3.5 pounds-no trigger job needed.

I always tear them down and look them over, I stoned the mating surfaces and adjusted the trigger spring before I even shot my Endeavor, I like to know what I am working with. I am not sure what it was doing before but now it breaks clean at just over 2.3 pounds.

Default encore trigger job

I have three Encore frames. I do not even try the factory trigger. Everyone I have ever seen needed a trigger job. I have had mine done By Bellm, and Stratton. Both guys do great work. EABCO also does great work. And will combine other services for a better price if you have him do the work.

Definitely worth it. Tom.

Before forking out a 100 bucks on a Encore trigger job, give this a try. I picked this info up a couple yrs. ago from another forum. It worked out great for me. A lot of other fella's have also done this with great success.

well the bend the spring thing very easy to do. i will give the instructions again and save you cash.

1. take every thing off the frame.

2. remove the screw the only one to remove the trigger guard

3. push the pin out that holds the trigger you cant miss it

4. take a minute and look things over. you will see a spring with an L on it take a flat screwdirer and bend it back once or twice. put it all back together you will have a 1-2lb trigger and it will work great.

Added info:

bend it towards the barrell. you will fell the tension. do it 2 times no more put it back together then if it s not light enough bend it some more but dont go crazy this next time. i put in the spring and went back and redone it much better trigger now
