    I currently have a SKB 685 with inertia triggers and has been having problems setting the second trigger with light loads. Any solutions to this problem other than a mechanical trigger change over or heavier loads? Thanks.

    Toad, when was the last time you took the stock off and cleaned the inner workings? I have an 85tss that would misfire on the top barrel once in a while-light hits on the primer. I took it apart last week and sprayed it out with some Birchwood Casey gun cleaner and it worked perfect yesterday. Mike

    Just took the stock off and it is all clean. The triggers will set when I shoot shells such as the 1280FPS Remington game loads but not anything lighter.

    Toad, I sprayed everything with remington oil and wiped it down also. I didn't have the same problem as you, but there is some blowback that gets in there and eventually gums things up. Mike

    One way to solve the problem would be to make the inertia block in the trigger heavier inorder to compensate for the light loads. You can do this using swing weight lead tape. Put a small piece on each side of the block. This tape is available at your local golf pro shop. HMB

    toad67 one thing I would make sure of is that I am taking my finger of the trigger completely. In some guns the slightest bit of pressure against the trigger may stop the swap over.

    One way to find out is use the light loads with out shooting at the targets and very carefully make sure your finger comes off the trigger(no contact)and see if you still have the problem.

    Todd, If after doing that & you are still having problems, contact Briley and get their trigger work done for 410 tubed guns. This should fix the problem, or you can send it back to SKB and they will do it for nothing. Good Luck and Break-em all. Jeff

    Send it to Briley. Probably less than $100 round trip.

    Guys,

    Unless Briley has their FFL problems all straightened out, they can't accept a receiver.

    I'd just send it to Omaha and have it serviced.
