    I have a friend that has an Browning XT Combo her bottom Bbl is set at 5 1/4 lbs
    top Bbl is 4 3/4 lbs she is having the feeling of a flinch coming on at times.

    I suggested checking trigger pull and this was the results, it just had an annual done on it at the Cardinal Shoot, my feeling is the trigger pull should be 3-3 1/2 lbs, her scores have been dropping.

    I ordered a trigger pull gauge from Brownell's a few hours ago so she could check it at intervals to see if it changes.

    I know Ljutics are bad on this as their pins are all 1/8th inch and they bend and break affecting trigger pulls, I have seen the fluctuate 3 lbs on rechecks and found hammer pin broken and even bent, personal opinion the hammer pin should be larger for more strength, just my opinion.

    I don't think that your friend knows the difference between ounces and pounds. I'll bet money that her trigger pull is not 5 ounces or anything near that low. More than likely it is about 5 POUNDS.

    I shot a .50 BMG with a 4 ounce trigger for long range shooting. You could barely feel your finger touch the trigger before it went off. 4 ounces on a trap gun would be dangerous at least in my hands.

    I corrected my post it was in pounds.

    Gary,

    I'm not sure what the question is. If your lady friend thinks she is about to begin flinching, a lighter trigger pull will not solve the problem, IMO. In fact, I think that too light trigger pulls contribute to the flinching problem.

    A trigger pull of 3 to 3 1/2 pounds is too light, IMO. A smooth trigger pull of 4 pounds with just a touch of slack is about perfect. Of course, I shoot a release trigger so I know a little about flinching. :)

    I called Browning Arms today and they told me the trigger pull is within their specs of 5-6 lbs.

    This heavier than most trapguns.
