    I have a trigger for a MX3 that is hanging up. Anybody out there in trapshooting land that can fix it.

    Lube it with thin oil, work the parts, blow out the oil and see if it still hangs up

    Over the years, I have done lots of P triggers. One friend sent me his trigger via taxi cab in the middle of the week so he could have it for a big shoot that weeken. That said, I will not do them anymore. They are really tough to get the correct trigger pull with no creep, and have it last. Once you file through the surface hardening, it is not easy to keep the set. My advice would be to send it to a top gunssmith or to Giacomo.

    Also if the trigger seems to work OK outside the gun but hangs in the gun the problem could be the cocking rod being bent and dragging in the receiver.
