What Trigger Pull Weight Do You Like For Your Marlin Levergun?

Registered Users do not see the above ad.

Hi all,
Well, the wife was away with our daughter and MIL for the afternoon and I figured that I would just kick-back, with a little help from Jim Beam, and do something different. I dug out a RCBS trigger pull scale that I had bought a number of years ago (new) and decided to measure the trigger pulls on my Marlins. I didn't hang weight off the scale to calibrate it.

Of the 23 Marlins, the ten that I had retrofitted with the WWG triggers consistently "broke" at 2.5 lbs. The remaining ones that I had "stoned" (the sears) broke at 3.2-3.7 lbs.

These are hunting rifles, but I do a lot of paper-punching with them as I like to do a lot of shooting during the non-hunting season.

In your opinion do the trigger pull weights sound OK to you? Your thoughts?

" for me" a 2 lb trigger on my lever guns is perfect.....my bench guns and varmint rifles have 2 oz triggers, so I am used to "light"...............but, for any hunting gun, I would say that 2 to 3 is acceptable, and the top end of that wouldnt bother me at all.
