I was wondering if I had a trigger job done on my remington if this voids the warranty. It will be performed by a gunsmith if that make a difference.
Won't void it on the gun, but voids it on the trigger. If you send the gun in to remington, be warned, they will yank your nicely adjusted trigger off, and then put a crappy 10lb trigger back on and charge you like 40 dollars for it. Before sending in a rifle, take the trigger off.
Why do you say that?I gathered that he wastalking about adjusting the trigger pull on the factory trigger,not putting on an aftermarket trigger.

If a "Remington Authorized Service Center" does the modification it doesn't say anything about voiding any warranty.

I will quote the manual:

Only a qualified service facility should service, repair or modify your Remington firearm. Consult your instruction book for instructions on how to send your firearm to the factory or for the location of the nearest Remington Authorized Service Center.


Seems to me that he would be just fine having a Authorized Service Center change his trigger pull weight for him on the factory trigger.

Because generally, you can't get a authorized service center to go below 3.5lbs. In fact, most won't adjust for pull. I am sure some will. But the places I have asked, goes on about the springs can't handle 2.5lbs. Thats bull. The posters wants to know about taking to a gunsmith.

Listen man, its this easy. A monkey can do. Take the freakin trigger off. Problem solved. And because I have went thru this, and have posted my experience. I understand that doesn't line up with what you want to hear.

If ya want that trigger really good...have them change the spring also. Remember...the trigger is the gun. If its good it will shoot much better. You can lighten them but it seems if you dont change the spring they dont quite have as good of a feel to them.

What I want to hear is a logicalexplanation, not a smartass remark or a holier than thou comment.

You obviously don't realize that a gunsmith can be an Authorized Service Center.

If the Authorized Service Center won't go below 3.5 lbs than say so instead of being a jerk and also suggesting that he void his warranty by removing the trigger.

I'm just trying to help the guy get accurate information with some jerk trying to insult me. I don't care who is right as long as the guy gets his problem solved.

But I don't give a crap what you want. Pahuntr asked the question. If you ask the question and start your own thread, I still won't care, but maybe someone on huntingnet will and will answer you. there's always hope for you.

Maybe thats the reason, I have had trouble adjusting some down. They had alot of creep. I never could get the overtravel just right. But this has only happened on 1 trigger out of many factory remingtons.

Here you go Pahntr,

Adjusting triggers is something that was once an expected job by the owner of a new gun, just like adjusting the seats in your new car.
But Remington (because of many lawsuits) takes a very dim view of adjusting their triggers... it's number "1" under Remington's "Felony list of no-no's".
Be advised, if you adjust the trigger, and send the gun back to Remington (in the USA) for repairs, they will charge you for a new trigger (they will NOT re-adjust the old one).


The Remington triggers are very good, except they come with a built in lawyer, and he weighs about 9 or 10 pounds.
You will need a bit of good quality gun oil (CLP or equivalent), and a set of small screwdrivers, and some white or red nail polish.
Remove the barreled action from the stock.
Looking at the gun and trigger so the safety is up, and the barrel is pointing to your right... the front of the trigger is to your right...

The three screws are as follows...
[ul][*]On your right, (the front of the trigger) the top screw, near the action, is over travel...[*]The bottom screw is spring tension...[*]On your left side, (the back of the trigger) is the engagement screw. [/ul]

First, break the white "Seals of God" and screw the three screws out enough so that you see several threads.
They may be hard at first, but they are NOT staked in place. The screws and trigger body are carbon steel, and may be rusted, or they may have a sealant on them. Just break them free. Drop a teeny bit of oil on the threads. Run the screws in and out several times until the oil is in the threads, and they turn freely.
OK, now down to business.
Back out the spring tension screw out until there is just enough pressure to keep the trigger forward, but it's very light (4 or 5 oz's) and easy to move.
Back out the engagement screw, (the single screw on the left) and the over-travel screw (the upper screw on your right) out, so there's play to adjust.
Close the bolt on a cocked pin (don't pull the trigger) and VERY SLOWLY turn the engagement screw (on your left) in until the firing pin drops. Back it out about 1/3 to 1/2 of a turn. With the firing pin down, you should now feel the trigger wobble back and forth if you pull it because there is excessive over travel.
Because the back surface of the trigger is NOT undercut, you have to adjust over-travel with the pin "down".
Now, with the firing pin in the "fired" position, screw in the over-travel screw until it "just touches" the trigger lightly, preventing the trigger from moving... back out the over travel screw 1/4 turn. Pulling the trigger now, (with the pin "down") you should feel just the "slightest" free movement.
Now turn in the spring tension screw (lower right) to a pull that you like... I'd strongly suggest a good trigger pull gauge, instead of guessing.
Cock the pin and try it... it should break like glass.
Check by:
[/align][ul][*]Slam the bolt closed a dozen times, check to see if the pin dropped each time. If the pin drops, back out the engagement screw 1/4 turn, and do again.[*]Cock the pin, set the safety, pull the trigger, release the trigger, and release the safety, a dozen times... if the pin drops, increase the spring tension (shouldn't be necessary, unless you're down around 10-15 oz's, and this trigger is not reliable at that light a pull. [/ul]
Put white or red nail polish on the screws. Let dry, and put another coat on it again, and again.
There will be no "take up slack", this is a single stage trigger, and can't be adjusted to act like a two stage.
These triggers are easily capable of going to 24-26 oz's, and they keep the setting year after year, and I've never had to re-adjust one.

The original question by the poster of this thread, is asking about the Trigger and I answered yes. If you mess with the trigger and mess it up, Remington will bill you for a new one.

I'm not worried aboutmessing it up, a gunsmith will be doing it for me! Most gunsmiths with any kind of name will back their work, right?

And all...dont start a pissing match. I will ask Remington what i can do! If all else fails, i can get an aftermarket trigger that is more easily adjustable and install that. Then anytime I have a warranty issue that requires me to send it in, I will put the factory in! Thanks for the help, but Y'all need to stop this bickering!
