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?

Does the rimfire accutriggers have pull adjustments? If they do I haven't figured out how to do it.
I'm a bit out of my element here, but my friend tried to explain to me, then showed me. The adjustment screw is just behind the trigger. Only thing is, one has to remove the barrel and trigger from the stock to get to it (or see it).
Two hex screws, fore and aft of the magazine, and the barrel comes out. One of the screws doesn't come out all of the way, but releases the barrel. Then the adjustment is inside the spring just behind of the trigger. I hope this helps.

Thanks a bunch, I'll delve into it deeper. I had the action out of the stock and didn't see the normal adjustment which is on the trigger main spring.
Went back into my rimfire Savage with the accutrigger and it appears about the same as the centerfires.... don't know what I was thinking of. I backed the spring deeper into the trigger and reduced the pull down to 42 oz which was as low as it would go.

Just wanted to let y'all know the barrel or trigger assembly don't have to come out of the action or anything like that. Just remove the barreled action out of the stock, and turn the spring.
If you're feeling adventurous you could clip about 11/2 to 2 coils off that trigger spring, if too light you can always tighten the tension.:D
I had considered cutting the spring until noticing the last coil is bent up in the center at 90 degrees. That tip is sitting in a small hole in the receiver to locate it. The trigger has lots of side to side movement. I'm going to shim that out and just live with what I already have.
The trigger spring is a 2 diameter spring the small end goes thru the trigger the large end should go over the rear trigger stud. The end that goes over the stud is where you clip it. I have clipped 2 coils from 3 of my rimfires and it made a real improvement.
Mine is two diameter. The small end threads in the trigger and the large end is bent to form a tit which fits into a small hole drilled in the receiver bottom.
