    How do you set up your release triggers. Set pressure? Release pressure? Travel prior to release?
    Thanks for your response...SMOKIT

    It is not a DIY project, you have to send the trigger to a good gunsmith usually the one who made the release in the first place.

    I know that you don't set them yourself. I was asking what your preference is. What do you request form the guy making your release triggers...?

    I like a 80 oz set and a 26 oz let/off with a little forward travel so I can control when the gun will fire instead of it being a surprise. For me; when the release is too fast I will short shoot the targets and if the release is too slow my cheek will come off the comb.

    My Precision triggers set at 72 oz and let off at 38 oz it makes for a fast trigger but I like that. My Ljutic is set the same.

    I still have a Timney Double Release for a MX-8 that both triggers set at 72 and release at 50 oz. I shot that trigger for a long time but it takes a bit of getting use to.

    When I got my Precision trigger they recommended 72/28 but that was way to slow for me.

    Everyone is different. Buy a good scale try a few of your shooting buddies Triggers and weigh the triggers after you shoot them. Maybe that will save you from having to make a lot of changes.
