    I purchased a precision tigger like new that will not reset the upper barrel and I am shooting reg. Rem. 1 1/8 OZ loads. Any ideas why the second trigger won't reset. I can give it a small tap with the heel of my hand and it fires just fine. Is there an adjustment allen wrench set screw that can be adjusted or does it mean a trip to the manuf. Also does anyone have their name and phone #.Glenn

    Thanks, Mine is also a dbl release, I will try the spray, that just might take care of it as it just takes a small tap and it resets the other trigger so it will fire. Glenn

    The Pennington's believe a micro dab of Clenzoil is the best lubricant for Precision triggers, especially release triggers. They even supply it in a tiny bottle with needle tip if you ask for it. Try some.

    Does your stock have a recoil device? If so it can interfere with the inertia action, may need a heavier weight on it.

    I tried the light oil after a good blow job but it didn't make any difference, I even tried a very heavy load in the bottom barrel and it wouldn't set the upper barrel and jet it takes just a small bump with my hand and the second barrel will fire just fine. I'm going to try it in the other gun without the rad system, maybe that will help. Thanks for the ideas. It is just like new and operates perfect for the unsingle but not for the dbls. Glenn

    Didn't make any difference in the regular stocked gun. I'm going to call manuf. Glenn

    Glenn, you might call Pat Laib ... I'm sure he would have an idea.

    Diane Pennington called me this afternoon and said to send it out as it shouldn't be anything to re-adjust the "tree" or the Inertia Block and contrary to the other thread recently there would be minimal or no charge unless parts had to be replaced. She said don't let anyone work on the trigger as it probly is only in need of minor adjusting. Sounded good to me, trigger will be leaving in the AM. Thanks for everyone's help. Glenn

    Stubbs above has the right idea. Mine did the same thing and the little bent piece of steel attached to the safety would just hit the top of the inertia weight and prevent it from operating freely. I removed the stock and found where it was hitting and bent the little flat piece up about .030" and have not had an issue since.
