Anyone have a source for adjusting the trigger on the SSG? Both my 04 and my 08 have 3 screws and manual doesn't help any. I searched forum, google and YouTube. I played around blindly with my 04 many years ago, and managed to somewhat get it to my liking. Unfortunately I don't remember which screw did what. Would rather not mess with my 08 without being sure which screw does what. Thanks in advance.

Anyone? Anyone? Buehler? If figured that if I had a chance of finding this info, it was going to be on this forum.

If you want info on adjusting the trigger on the SBS action, have a look on Fr. Frog's Scout rifle pages (google it). He will send you a set of instructions privately if you ask and declare that you will not pass them on, or hold anyone liable. I have a copy (which I promised I would not publish or otherwise misuse - hence I am not simply answering your question).
I would say its all pretty straightforward, but you will need to do a bit of detective work. Sorry not to be more straightforward on this, but a promise is a promise.

Sigma,

If you like shooting, you'll like Fr. Frog's site. If you ever wanted a receipe for cleaning solutions, lead removal, it's there. Ever wondered about 2 to the torso, one to the head being called a Mozambique? The answer is there, and The Song. All in all, warning, you can lose many hours reading what he's spent years compiling. The hour spent reading the quotes is totally worth it.

The adjusting the trigger pull weight is not really correct. The rigger pull adjustment screw is above. You have to remove the bolt to access it.
