Experienced athletes share their insights in answering this question:
Here is a link to the detailed disassembly instructions for the Remington Model 5 rifle included exploded view parts diagrams:

In order to smooth out the trigger pull, you would have to gently stone and polish the trigger / firing pin contact point without altering their engagement angles.

Here is a link to a short video showing a technician stoning / polishing the trigger contact point on a hand gun. This is merely to demonstrate the polishing process and how little stoning is required to make a difference.

Good luck.


How to Identify and Resolve Common Issues ?

We offer a diverse range of insights on identifying and resolving common problems in sports. Our sources encompass academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays shared by seasoned athletes. :

Most stock and issued carbines come with a trigger pull of between 7.5 and 9.5 pounds. We designed to study to assess whether a lighter trigger, 4.5-5.5 pounds, had any effect on marksmanship. causing the hammer or striker to release and fire the weapon (10).
Misfire. A misfire is when you pull the trigger and the gun goes click! A misfire normally is due to a faulty primer. It may also be an issue with the gun`s firing pin.
It didn`t take long to hear of rifles that had fired without the trigger being pulled and, of course, the lawsuits followed. Despite all the allegations, it wasn`t until 1982 that Remington made any significant changes to the original Walker design.
Straight from the factory, the Remington 700 comes with a trigger pull of about 5 lbs.
The trigger adjustment screw is located in front of the trigger. It will have some type of sealant on the screw. The adjustment screw (2 mm) turned clockwise increases the trigger pull, counterclockwise decreases it. If the trigger pull is set too heavy, the trigger cannot be pulled and must be re-adjusted.
For most shooters, a trigger pull weight between two and three pounds is just about right. Trigger pulls for hunting rifles for use in cold conditions or against dangerous game should be at least three pounds.
Squeeze, not Pull

Rather than pulling, think of it like squeezing the side of a toothpaste tube. This ensures a constant motion from front to back, helping to hold the gun steady throughout the firing process. One great way to practice this is through dryfire.

When you pull the trigger of a gun, a spring mechanism hammers a metal firing pin into the back end of the cartridge, igniting the small explosive charge in the primer. The primer then ignites the propellant—the main explosive that occupies about two thirds of a typical cartridge`s volume.
Remington adjusted the triggers accordingly and sealed the screws, which is a good indicator for us to leave them alone. Only one adjustment screw found on the 40x and the X-Mark Pro adjustable triggers is unsealed, with Remington providing instructions on how to adjust it.
The recall notice specifies that the culprit is the Remington trigger assembly known as the X-Mark Pro. It turns out that the X-Mark Pro triggers assembled between May 1, 2006 and April 9, 2014 could have been put together with too much bonding agent, according to Remington.
Trigger pull weight is the amount of force or pressure needed to manipulate the trigger properly and make the gun fire. Thus, the greater the trigger pull weight (or the higher the number of pounds), the greater the force needed to make the weapon fire.
Pull Weight

For a rifle whose primary purpose is hunting or casual shooting a trigger that will adjust down to about 2.5-3 pounds will work just fine. In a survey of the top 150 shooters in the PRS and NRL the vast majority favor a trigger with a pull weight of . 5 to . 9 pounds.

Wait until you have total control on the outcome before pulling the trigger, if you can wait until they`ve gone past you it`ll make for an easier target.
first stage, a 1.5-1.75 lb. second stage for a total of 4.25-4.75 lb. of pull.
Variation. Many rifles and shotguns are manufactured with a standard length of pull assumed to fit most shooters. This is often approximately 13.5 in (34 cm) for rifles and about 2 cm (0.8 in) longer for shotguns.
A poor-quality trigger results in a rifle that cannot be relied on. You do not if or when it will work properly, when it will need to be attended to or whether the firearm will fire properly. Even worse, it could be unsafe.
Modern semiautomatic weapons can discharge a round and load the next bullet into the chamber faster than even the nimblest of fingers can pull the trigger. FBI studies have shown that a novice can fire three shots in less than a second, and a trained shooter can double that.
The trigger safety is the first safety in the firing sequence. It`s incorporated into the trigger in the form of a lever and when it is engaged blocks the trigger from moving rearward. To fire the pistol, the trigger safety and the trigger itself must be deliberately depressed at the same time.
The best way to control your breath while shooting is to breathe normally while you pick up the rifle, put it in your shoulder and begin to point it at the target. When you are pointing the front sight at the aiming bull, exhale and stop breathing. Do not breathe until after the shot is fired.
A binary trigger increases a weapon`s firing speed. Unlike a bump stock, it is legal in most states. It allows a firearm to shoot one bullet when the trigger is pulled and one when it releases.
Carrying without a round in the chamber not only slows down your draw somewhat but it also reduces your ammo capacity by one round and complicates your draw should you ever need to do so one-handed.
The Firing Pin Block

The truth is back in the “Old West,” it was very possible to make a gun negligently discharge by simply dropping or jostling it. However, today, this is much less likely to happen, thanks to a safety feature known as a firing pin block.

The leverage being a personal choice for most shooters, still, a large number of shooters prefer the flat trigger over the curved trigger since it provides more leverage, and also more room in case you`re wearing gloves in the trigger guard.
A single set trigger looks similar to a standard trigger except for the small screw behind or in the base of the trigger that allows the weight of pull to be adjusted.

Machine will stop adjusting resistance. On start up the machine will usually work. I can go through the calibration procedure and it will calibrate and work normally for 4 or 5 resistance adjustments. It will then stop adjusting. It acts like there is a cable pulled and refuses to adjust, even though I am not getting the warning telling me to “Release cable”
I have modified the wiring harness so that the wires do not fall off from the stepper motor, so this is not the problem. If I shut the machine down and leave it for several minutes, it will come back and work normal again… for a while. I am wondering if there is a problem with the sensors that are detecting a cable pull? Is there a way to disable those sensors to see if that is the problem
ANSWER : I would think that your problem has possibly to do with a faulty power supply, component, see to my mind it is a thermal problem as it heats up,it goes faulty? The Voltage changes and it goes out of spec.. When left to cool, it then is OK… Usually, & from my experience this is a thermal problem. To see obtain some Freeze Spray, from radio Shack or similar,and spray components on the main power board, and others too, use it on any large heat sinked components and see if when you do this the fault clears. Then replace that component(s).

Or as you suggest the sensors that feed the inputs maybe with sensors though one has little option but to replace them and see if this clears the problem.

This is the izh 513m .177 rifle. It’s brand new. I am not sure as of what to do and the hammer want budge and the trigger won’t pull. The barrel has no tension and it won’t go up like its supposed to.
ANSWER : This could be a factory safety that the hammer and trigger do not move while in the cocked position. The barrel may be locking down purposely. Look near the spring or in the path of the barrel where it folds back up and look for a release button. What do you see?

Mar 12, 2010 – Could it be the check valve? I took it off and the flap appears to be working correctly. This well has been here a long time. Never given me any problems. I do have galvenized couplers on the discharge and intake sides. Old. Could these be leaking even though they show no sign of water? The discharge is able to hold 30 pounds easily overnight. I do not hear any vacuum in the intake when I take it off. Could the pipe to the well have a leak? I know I would have to insert a sleeve bnut I do not want to go through the hassle if I do not have to. I had put on a brand new pump from the hardware store that did the same thing so I think that would elliminate the pump as being the problem.
Mar 12, 2010 – I have a 3/4hp flotec convertible jet pump. It is able to hold 30lbs pressure on the discharge side as the primie easily for 24 hours. It is not able to pull water from the well whcih has been here for years. i disconnected it for the winter and rehooked it up. The galvanized couplers on the discharge and pump side are old but do not appear to be leakeing as I taped them well. The check valve seems to be functioning well as I took it off and the flap works correctly. The well is not pulling watrer. there does not appear to be a vacuum on the check vale when I losen it. could the check valve be bad? I am aware I might have to resleeve the well, but do not want to hassle with this if I do not have to. I want to eliminate everything else first. i put another brand new pump on it to see if it was that. That partiuclar pump which was the same thng did not work either.

ANSWER : Your well has gone dry it seems. It has happened to my before. At first the new pump I purchased that did not pump I took back for exchange and still no water. I finally gave in and called the well experts and I was told the well was dried up
