    I just took possession of my "new to me" Rottweil combo. It seems to me the trigger pull is very light so I took it to a shop when I was out of town this weekend and had them put their scale on it. It measured a hair over 1 lb.

    That seems really light to me and can't imagine anyone purposefully having that done to it. Assuming his scale was correct, how can I increase the trigger pull on this unit?

    Does anyone know what the "stock" trigger pull was on the trigger from a AAT72?

    I think their scale was off a bit. I put it on another scale and the bottom trigger measured 2.5 lbs. and the one for the upper barrel was 5 lbs. My opinion is 5lbs. is too heavy for a target gun. I am having the lower increased and the upper reduced so it is 1/2 lb. more than lower barrel trigger.

    Why don,t you change and put a new hammer spring on the bottom barrel and then check it again, but 2 1/2 is just about perfect. If you have been shooting a gun with a heaiver pull it will take you a little time to get use to the lighter pull. Then you will love it. GIVE YOURSELF SOME TIME WITH IT!

    My P single gun has a 22 ounce pull and has for 25 years. An over/under requires more engagement for safety reasons. Hap

    The gun is off to be worked on now so I can't just change out the hammer spring. Before work is started I will ask the gunsmith to check on his scale then if needed to put a new spring in it as I have several new ones I sent him with the gun. If that does not change anything then I will have him work it. I just could not imagine such a wide spread from 2.5 to 5 lbs. between the triggers. Most of the time it is my understanding that there is usually a .5lb difference.
