Introduction: Break Barrel Air Rifle Trigger Fix

About: Way she works

Triggers aren't too good on break barrel air rifles, usually the pull is heavy and annoying. Here's a trick that'll work on most break barrel air rifle with no permanent modifications required. It makes the pull more plush and lighter.

Step 1: Start

Tools:
Phillips head screw driver
Small flat head screw driver
Pellet rifle

Alright so to start, remove the action of the rifle from the stock. There will be a couple screws to pull

Step 2: Fix

Remove the trigger from the trigger assembly. You will find a small spring and a pin which is the sear for the trigger, discard the spring and take the pun and put washers over it (look at images) it'll make the sear bigger which will fix the deal.

Step 3: Tips

You will notice a very light trigger pull amd be careful.


Tip: Washers can be found on the two bolts at the front holding the stock to the action

This shouldn't do any damage to your rifle and will hopefully improve your accuracy

    Much neater than using lock washers for bearings is to go to a hobby shop and get a RC car wheel bearing. 5 MM inside - 8 MM outside and 2.5 MM wide. It may cost $3 but it makes for a much nicer job. I keep about a half dozen in my shooting bag to help somebody with a cranky trigger. Also replace the 3 MM by 5 MM trigger adjusting with a 3 MM by 10 MM screw.

    You get a "hair trigger" doing this (fix) your air rifle can go off if dropped, this could be very dangerous.
