    Has anyone had experience with these new triggers on Savage and Ruger Rifles? I know from bitter experience that the old triggers on these rifles were awful. I want to make sure that I don't make another expensive mistake! Thanks for your help!

    The accu trigger on the Savage was so bad on mine that I bought a rifle basix trigger. I was very satisfied with the basix and also with the Savage after I did it. It is a very accurate rfle but the factory trigger is less than acceptable

    From what I hve learned in my research for F-class shooting, the Accutrigger is the best factory trigger around. Ruger is not even close. Next step up would be a Jewell trigger (aftermarket). from what I've gleaned from my reading.

    I have a .17 hmr and also a .204 with the accu trigger, never been a fan of savage but the trigger is excellent, for the price you can't go wrong. The 204 will outshoot all of my other factory guns

    I have a Savage 10FCP McMillan 308 with the Accutrigger. Easily the best trigger I have ever had on a production rifle. My buddy has a Savage with the competition Accutrigger and has had some problems with it set under 1lb, no problems with it over a lb.

    I have two Savage rifles with Accu-trigger. I pulled the spring out of the trigger and cut a coil or two off and got the pull down to 1 1/2 pounds. It is a great trigger and a great rifle. I have found Savage not only to have a better trigger than Ruger but more accurate as well.

    The target (red blade) accutrigger is fantastic.

    Of course you could always spend 300 bucks if you have to get under 6 oz, but I spent that money on bullets.

    I find the normal accutrigger very good in all the rifles I have seen so far. If you have a problem, get with Fred Moreo at Sharpshooter Supply, the Savage specialists.

    Got two Savages with the accutrigger and one without. No comparison. Accutrigger wins.

    Have two Ruger 77 MkIIs with stock trigger. Looking for something, anything, better as these are way heavy. No detectable creep, just heavy.
