    My BT 100 trigger has a screw for adjusting pull wieght. My question is what does this screw do. It is a blind hole. I know how to set the other screw for sear engagement but dont see how this screw does anything. Thanks

    Mike, I am not sure what it does either although it is apparent what it is supposed to do. Mine backed itself out one time and the trigger still worked just fine and I didnt notice any difference in the pull. I didn't put it back in. Been that way for over a year.

    Mike ...... You are correct, the second screw is for sear engagement ......... BMC is correct also, the weight/pound adjustment screw, if loosened all the way, will come out, this would then be the lightest possible setting, and it is OK to use w/out the screw ......... Rudy

    Rudy how does the the weight pound screw work is what I dont understand. The screw goes into a threaded hole that goes nowhere. Thanks Mike c

    Trigger adjustment screws work in conjunction with a spring which when compressed applies varying pressure to the trigger lever. The more pressure applied the greater the weight of pull. From your description I do not see how it can change the weight of pull. HMB

    HMB you are correct. I can tell you there is no spring behind this screw. if you look at a breakdown from Browning it even shows no spring just the screw. Is it possible that people just think because they can turn a screw it makes the pull lighter? Mike C
