Hi guys,
Another issue I am having with my Husqvarna 30/06 build.

I am pretty much done inletting the new stock on my rifle, and noticed tonight that when I tighten the rear action screw and cycle the bolt the rifle fires!

This is unacceptable and never happened when it wore the old stock, something about the new stock is causing the but I can't figure it out, any ideas?

Either the trigger, sear, or both are not traveling through their full range of motion.

It seems to work properly when I first cock it, and looks to only fire when I open the bolt again, always while cycling the bolt handle upwards, never when pulling it back.

try taking the barreled action out of the stock and cycling the action. If the problem goes away, then the stock is binding somewhere. Some inletting black on the trigger/sear assembly may be helpful in finding the bind.

The trigger is binding or the sear engagement is not enough. When you push the bolt forward and down, it holds, when you lift the bolt, it moves upward and drops

All the ideas of checking with inletting black are spot on, also check to make sure you aren't getting any movement when you tighten those screws. If you do, you may need to check the inletting for the entire assembly. There should be no movement as the screws are tightened.

Do you suppose that will help the trigger problem?

I had that trigger assembly smeared blacker than a witches heart last night, but did not see a mark where it could be binding to the stock.

I also took more wood out of the channel that I cut for the bolt handle, to make sure it always closes properly.

Still no dice.

I know this is caused by pressure being applied somewhere when the action screw is tightened, I am getting the rifled bedded this week but before sending it off I am going to add a couple of small washers to the action screw as a temporary shim, to see if that allows me to tighten the screw up but maybe relieve some pressure on the sear/trigger.

I am also thinking I should replace the trigger with something better than that awful 1940's trigger.

What trigger would you suggest I go with?
Never done a trigger job myself any gotchas?

Thanks Gents
