How do you adjust the pull on a Perazzi trigger.
I had my O/U trigger not cocking and a need to take to a gunsmith,but I had a release trigger and took the release assemble off. The trigger work fine but has a very heavy pull over 4 Lbs.
Four lbs is O.K. for me, actually I prefer four and one half. Use a small file (or similiar) to undercut the trigger sear (not the hammer) to increase the amount of pull, round it off to decrease the amount of pull. Best left to a knowledgeable gunsmith if you're not familiar with the process.
setter, I'll admit I have never worked on a Perazzi trigger, but I have worked on a few others using a Ron Power trigger jig and a selection of trigger stones. Doesn't matter. Sear and hammer engagement surfaces should be stoned using a jig. Never freehand as it is IMPOSSIBLE to hold the surfaces square. Properly finished surfaces done with hard stones will have sharp edges and a mirror finish. That cannot be done with a file.
The last time Lucio Sosta from Perazzi got a hold of my trigger, he got the biggest file I have ever seen and went to work on the sear. It looked more like he was shoeing a horse than adjusting a sear, but you could not argue with the results… or his level of confidence.
Art - I would consider sending the trigger to Perazzi USA or Giacomo Sporting. You should get your trigger back inside a week and it will be right. These folks have adjusted more than a few in their day...
