    Ok, here's my naive question of the day...

    How does one accurately measure the release weight of a release trigger??

    sissy You have to have a good trigger gauge. Cock the gun ( make sure it's unloaded first) put trigger gauge on trigger pull until it sets. Remember set pounds, slowly release gauge until it fires.Remember that setting. For example 5 lb set 3 lb release. Which means you have to pull 5 lbs. to set the trigger and let up on it 2 lbs. for it to fire which is fairly fast. The differance between the set poundage and the release is how fast or slow the trigger is.Hope this helps George

    If you have a trigger pull gauge that holds the setting, it helps.
