My 1895 seems to have a pretty heavy trigger.
I shoot several Milsurp rifles so I know heavy triggers.
Now that, that is settled . . .

Any of you install one and did you get a nice reasonable trigger pull out of the install.

110 bucks worth???

3lb on (my) WWG trigger.

Adjusted the factory trigger sears on 6 others to 3.5lb.


Don't ask me about my military service or heroic acts...most of it is untrue.

Suggestions on adjusting factory trigger?

Put in the happy trigger and bearproof ejector. Good lighter trigger pull and all works smoothly. I used stainless in a blued rifle. Looks good, no trigger wiggle. My 95 is one with the lawyer safety. Be well, RZ.

It’s the first thing I do with a Marlin when I get a new (to me) one. Much better trigger than the factory one. It’s a DIY project. First one probably took me 45 minutes.


It’s my understanding that slight forward pressure on the hammer dry firing the rifle (safety first) will polish the factory trigger and eliminate the need for this. Although I’ve never done this I would assume it to be true, once a marlin has a few hundred rounds on it, the trigger slicks up nicely. Unfortunately most people never fire their rifle enough to know this. This can be done on the couch in one evening I would think. If I tried this I wouldn’t let the hammer hit the firing pin that many times, crossbar safety or caution, whichever.

Go over to Marlin Owners forum's gunsmithing section and read up on how to work your trigger. Not hard, and all the info is already posted with pics.
I've done it on a few that were pulling at 5+ lb. and crunchy, probably why the guys sold them, they are at 2 to 2.5 and crisp now. It will help you get to know your Marlin, they have pretty F'n cool insides, a design you can work on yourself, pretty easily.

A lot of that can also disappear on it's own........after 1000 rounds : )

I have had 2, 1 stainless, 1 blued. The blued trigger was not a huge improvement. I had it in an 1894 cowboy .32 mag for a while .. for some reason, the action did not feed well with the aftermarket trigger but worked fine with the factory trigger. Don't understand how a trigger change affects this, but it clearly did. The stainless trigger is / was great. It took the pull on a SS guide gun down to about 1.5 pounds .. better than any factory bolt action trigger available other than maybe Kimber. I sold the rifle maybe 10 years ago but I still have that trigger. I can't speak to other examples, but this specific one is brilliant and easily worth the $100+ price tag.

I just put a whole "WWG happy tune kit" into my 1895GSBL.

The aluminum follower, one piece ejector, and trigger.

The trigger flop is gone, and the trigger is now a crisp 3lbs.

I would buy it again.
