    I shoot 3lb triggers or lighter. Krieghoff states there's are 3 1/4 to 3 3/4lb, from the factory. Anyone know if there Krieghoff triggers are close to that.
    Thanks, Dave T.

    Jerry: Do you pull that trigger with 2 fingers instead of one? LOL. Before going to a release I had all my triggers set at approximately 3-1/2#. Ed

    esoxhunter; I bought the mod 12 because of the beautiful maple wood. i was shooting it well, and a friend asked if he could shoot a couple tergets. When he called for a target he could not pull the trigger. We all chuckled as he went to the car and returned with a trigger gauge, he found it to be 8+lb pull. Now I can't hit anything thinking about the trigger. Jerry

    Personally, I would not go under 3 lbs. I would hang in there at the 3 1/2 - 4 lb range. This is not rifle shooting at a fixed target. You are not squeezing a trigger.

    Trigger pull - What weight do you have? Good question, never measured it. I just shoot it the way it is. As long as it works, no need to change. Just something else to mess your head up thinking about it.

    Thanks guys: I started to flinch with my Citori Plus. I sent out the trigger and not only was it a heavy puller but pretty dirty. I had them set it to 3 & 3.5lb. Flinch it gone and now a pleasure to shoot. Dave T.

    trapshootin hippie- I cannot agree with your position. I like to check my trigger around twice a year. Triggers can change. A slow change may not be noticed by our fingers but can show up on the score board. I always carry a trigger scale with me and frequently lay it out on a bench at the club for anyone to use. I like my trigger to set at 80 oz and release at 32 oz.

    Pat, so, what you are saying is, that if I had known my trigger weight, I would have broken 100 straight in my last shoot, instead of 99? I thought the reason I missed the target is cause I was conderned with gettin my cell phone turned off that I had left on in my pocket. Personally, it is just something else to think about. As long as it still feels the same, it works for me. Kinda like the lady gettin a few more wrinkles over the years, she is still a keeper, no matter what.

    Jerry: I bought a nice original pre-64 from a friend of mine. When I tried to shoot it, I really had to "mash" the trigger to get it to fire. The trigger pull was 8 1/2# !! This came from the factory that way as he bought it new. He never shot it with the pull trigger; as when he purchased it he installed a release trigger assembly. If it were me I would have a competent gunsmith lighten the trigger pull to at least 4#. You'll see the difference. Ed

    esoxhunter; Just about the same thing I did, the man who sold me the gun is a good friend. After having the wood put on it he never shot it. Jerry

    trapshootin hippie- I tried to explain that a change in trigger pull (release) can happen and it very possibly could change the trigger timing. Trigger control is a basic part of the game. I do agree with your point that we should keep things as simple as possible, but if there is a change in my equipment such as POI or trigger weight, I want to know it.

    About 3.75-4.00 #'s on my broadway. Been that way from the factory since 1970.

    Jerry,

    I had Tom Larkin and P&P make all of the triggers in my model 12's between 3 and 3 1/2 #s, it makes a big difference ... My Perazzi is right on 3 #'s ... for both barrels ... WPT ... (YAC) ...
