Savage Accu-Triger

A friend just bought a rifle (.22 bolt) with this trigger system. Seemed excited and asked me over to see it, and a video on it. I came, I saw, I was very impressed (blown away).
This is a gizmo fits into the trigger, acts as a safety, AND A FAIL SAFE. A fool proof safety on the trigger!!! Even I can't get confused using it.
I watched the video with him. Then I wanted to try some things with it. Go to Savages's site, check out their video. What I want to scream to everyone is: Savage is selling this system way short! IT IS MUCH BETTER THAN THEY LET ON!
Basically it is a gizmo that catches the sear, if it should slip from the trigger let off (allows for a very light let off); and both the sear and the accu-thing are then frozen (something Savage doesn't mention); if the sear slips, everything is frozen until the hammer (or whatever, depending upon the firing system) is recocked. For lever action rifles and semi-automatic pistols and bolt actions, this in a dream come true. Plus it allows for a trigger adjustable to very light; with FULL safety. People; CHECK THIS OUT!!!!

How many times have we read of people coming to the end of a hunt, wanting to unload their magazines; and when they slip the manual safety off: KABOOM; they have inadvertantly shot themselves in the foot? Or of manual safeties suddenly, and unexpectantly, turned out to be on; just when one was making that "lifetime" shot?

Would it be possibile to adjust the time out (to automatic log off; a very fine feature) to something would allow me to preview my post, before having to log in again?

Its been around a while some people love them some people hate them.
One thing I think everybody can agree on is when Savage introduced the Accutrigger it forced the other manufacurers to improve theirs.
Very true. We are seeing more and more adjustable factory trigger these days due to the popularity of the Accu-Trigger. I have a Savage model 10 LE rifle with the accu-trigger and like it quite a lot. It is adjustable down to 1.5lbs and breaks very clean with no creep. It is also very accurate. I have had two Remington 700s set up basically the same way my Savage is and neither one of them were quite as accurate as the Savage. All of the accu-triggers are not adjustable down to 1.5lbs. It depends on the model of rifle, unless Savage has changed something I'm not aware of. Regardless, if you don't mind the little safety blade in the middle of the trigger it is a very nice trigger system on a factory rifle.
