Single Set Trigger

A single trigger, operating at a normal 4 - 6lb pull, which when pushed forward converts to a hair trigger. This trigger is usually fitted with and identifiable by a small set screw to adjust the weight of the hair trigger.


A Single-Set Trigger unit, in the relaxed position, operates normally. A ~4 pound pull will fire the rifle.


A Single-Set Trigger unit, cocked by pushing the trigger forward, will now fire the rifle---a mere touch will trip the tiny spring-loaded mechanism, magnifying its force to be enough to dislodge the main sear.
