Quattro Trigger Adjustment
« on: December 13, 2018, 08:25:53 PM »
What's the worst that can happen if you back the rearmost adjusting screw ("Screw #3") out too much?

BTW, thanks all for tolerating my noob posts. This is the only place I can get intelligent answers.

It falls on the floor, you search for it but can't find it.
Next morning the Wife walks through the room barefoot and finds it!
Ambulance is called to take you to the ER after she beats you senseless.

If you want to know if it will damage the Gun?
Only if she beats you with it.

Isn't there a point where there's not enough pressure on the sear to set?

Already saw this/thanks. But I'm still curious about what happens to the firing cycle when it's backed out too far. Is it insufficient pressure on the sear to hold the gun cocked?

In this picture you can see the screw in the bottom right corner.


It adjusts the amount of pressure on the trigger pull. Removing it will only lighten the pull so much.
The spring will NOT fall out even with the screw completely removed.
I changed to a lighter spring myself in all my Quatrro triggered guns.
I also made sure to bump test each one after changing the spring! I can't stress the bump test enough!

Jeff,

Thanks. I was looking for any further insight before I start to tune/tamper. When you say "bump test" I'm assuming it's the same as with a real firearm, meaning give it a reasonable jarring from the the butt, etc.?

Appreciate your answer.

One more thing, when you take the action out of the stock, be careful that the pins holding various parts of the trigger do not fall out!
Ask me how I know.... :D

Replace the screws in the trigger with longer 3mm hex screws and round the ends, this will give you some more adjustment
but I could only reduce the pull weight to 3 lbs. So it seems the spring mod suggested will get you below 3 lbs.
I found the trigger good with a clean break but was not a fan of the setback trigger blade

On the quattro trigger, when pulling the trigger try pulling up at an approx. 30Degree angle.  It will reduce the felt pull weight quite a bit.  Similarly, have your trigger finger rest on the trigger guard and follow its contour until shot releases.  Hope this helps...

Steve,
 Yes on the bump test. Knock it around in a reasonable way to be sure it is safe.
And for your sake? If you take that rear screw out DON'T drop it on the floor and loose it!
Although I did not receive a severe beating? The wife did find it with her bare foot.

Jeff,

Your picture was a big help. Worth a thousand words as the wise men say.... Would be even better if it could be simulated/animated!

Again, gracias!

Not that I know of...... Steven.       I don't think so... but... I really can't say.... 100%, for sure. 

I copied it from another post, three years ago.



Here is a picture of the Quattro Trigger on one of my guns.  I have the black trigger and not the Gold.

I have a Quattro trigger sitting in the other room. Maybe I'll do a stop motion type deal with it.

Basic idea is to picture your finger on the trigger, tip of thumb on the butt under the safety, then picture pulling your finger up and back to meet your thumb instead of just pulling straight back. Once you get used to the motion and yes, it's a little strange at first, you'll find it takes less effort to pull.
