Me too. I don't want them much lighter than that. I've bought a couple of second hand rifles where the trigger was rediculously light, one was 1.2 lb. My gunsmith brought them back up to around three pounds with new springs.

I have shot so many NRA Highpower matches that a little over 4# double stage feels right especially wearing gloves but, I also like my set triggers in warmer weather.

2.5 # for me. Tried lighter pull weights but didn’t care for them.

I like 2lb more or less for varmint rifles, but for deer rifles where I might be hunting with cold finger I like 3 to 3 1/2 lbs.

Two and a half to three for me.


If we live long enough, we all have regrets...and the regrets that nag at us the most are the ones in which we know we had a choice.

I spent many years shooting varmint rifles with triggers from 2-6 ounces for 6 months of the year. A light trigger doesn't bother me. Today, for hunting guns, I'm happy anywhere from 12 to 24 ounces depending on the weather and level of recoil. I find it difficult to manage heavy recoil where I have to take a pretty firm grip on the tang, yet do the very precise fine motor skills on the same index finger managing a light trigger. Yet I don't get along with heavy pulls. I'm also losing interest in heavy recoil so I guess it all works out.

I try to get a crisp 3.o lb pull on my big game rifles. We hunt in some nasty weather and I prefer a little more weight. My varmint rifles are set at 2.5 lbs. @.0 lbs if they are safe that low.
