    I have MX-8 with Drop out Trigger with a selector. Is there an easy way to lock the selector so that it does not move? I am having problems with bumping the selector and the gun firing both barrels at once. I leave it most the time with bottom barrel firing first. I shoot Right Handed so the selector is set to the right.

    Thanks,
    J. Michael Plaxco

    You have the external selector just behind the trigger that slides left and right??? Must be, because an internally selectable would be impossible to change without removing the trigger first.

    It (the selector) should have a good deal of resistance to resist movement. I shoot one and I really have to push on the selector to get it to move.

    I am thinking that internally, you either have a fatigued or broken spring that helps to provide a detent.

    Also, you must be sliding it just a small amount to get the sear tree to be exactly situated to cause it to double.

    I would suggest disassembling it and check for wear/broken spring. Also, perhaps s smack in the right place to add some resistance. A good gunsmith should probably be competent enough to succeed at this task.

    Yes, this trigger does have the selector in the back of the trigger.

    The trigger group is new and the selector is kinda hard to move. When the gun double's, the selector has only moved very little.

    Thanks for the suggestion.

    I was thinking about making a plate/filler block to fit in the cut out on the "off side" of the selector. When I put the trigger group in the gun, the frame would keep it falling out.

    Any thoughts on this? I shoot "low gun" on Sporting Clays and I am bumping/rubbing the selector as I mount the gun.

    Thanks, J. Michael Plaxco

    Mike. Do I look like a gunsmith? Do what I do. Send it to Doug Braker for fast turn around and fair rates. All he needs is the tirgger.

    call him. He responds. 218-847-3600

    J.Michael,

    The factory selector needs to move over more than 1/4" to clear the right release. However, if the selector had been moved (or switched) without engaging the safety first, the gun WILL double.

    If this is not the cause of your problem, maybe an internal selector is a better option, because if you put a plate on the left side to block your selector, you'll need to remove the trigger group to switch anyway.

    Let me know if you have any questions, or PM me. I'm traveling outside the country, internet is not available 24/7 to me.

    I can also fix this. I am in South Dakota so the location may not be convenient for you.
