Marlin 17VS trigger


Registered Users do not see the above ad.


Is there anyway to lighten the trigger on my Marlin 17VS? It is a sweet shooter, but the trigger is really stiff. Is this something I can do myself or should I take it to qualified gunsmith? Any advice would be great, thanks.

You should be able to lighten up the trigger pull by replacing the trigger spring with that of a ballpoint pen (there is a certain type that works best... I can't remember which) and some careful polishing on the trigger/sear contact areas.

I would personally reccomend to find a Rifle-Basix trigger and get one. Believe me, they are worth it. I was able to find a lightly used one for $35. I think you can find new ones from $80-$70 and they are great. They are trigger weight and creep adjustable and use the factory trigger housing, pins, sear, and safety.

I just checked out the company you suggested awesome! I think I will get a new trigger for my 700. As long as Household 6 blesses off on it! Thanks again for the info!

If you want to find a trigger for the 917 and don't want to pay a whole lot, check out RimfireCentral.com... you can probably find someone who is selling a RB trigger.
