AW93 Trigger Adjustment

Post by messenger on Fri Oct 05, 2018 9:52 am

I was advised to search on Target Talk. I just don't understand the terminology used there. My AW93 came to me with a very long roll. I can not feel any kind of 1st stage. Just a constant, extremely smooth pull until the trigger breaks. I would like to reduce this by at least half. I like a short roll on my wad guns. Any advice (in simple terms) would be greatly appreciated.

first, run out the over travel screw #22. 
Then run out screw #26 in back of the frame. 
set the trigger slack as short as can be and still be very safe, by turning screw #20 until the gun when the slide is cycled with the trigger held down will drop the hammer.
Then back it off to a comfortable safety distance and reset the screw #26 again.
 Repeat this procedure until you get the first stage as short as you feel comfortable, while still having the screw #26 have a just a hair of slack so that the bar drops into the groove consistently when you take your finger off the trigger. 
Set trigger point screw #21 to the right until the second stage goes away, and then back it to the left until it feels somewhat crisp.
 This is the important screw that lets you have a rolling release or a crisp release.
 
Here's where I found the most difficulties, if the second stage weight is too light, it won't give a consistent feel to the let off when it's set crisp. I was getting a sort of slight bump feel from the edge of the second stage sear when it was set too light, which went away as the second stage weight was increased a little. When the second stage feels right, that's when to set the let off slightly crisper. I then set the first stage weight to legal spec. Then I set the screw 26 in back of the frame again so that the bar has that slight hair of slack again. Then set trigger stop back enough so that the sear won't drag. 



do this with the grips off so you can see the trigger bar and how it interacts with all components.  let me know where you are getting hung up

I'm sorry but I am a little overwhelmed with this explanation. I assume you will be at Clark's match, NC State Championships. Any chance you would be able to look at it then?

Here is the manual

It also gives you which screw does what....sadly won’t be at the match till recovering from shoulder surgery

Sorry to hear about your shoulder. Just can't wrap my head around the explanations. Too much doubt. Messed with my Pardini trigger. Took a while to get it back.

Are you specifically looking for a 2 stage or you trying to shorter the first stage length ?

It doesn't have a first stage. It has a very long second stage then breaks. My best description is it's a very long roll trigger. I just want to shorten it by half. From the time I start the pull, I'm pulling two pounds until it breaks.

It would be easier if you called to step you through it.

Thank you so much Chris. I am amazed at your knowledge of the AW trigger. You made my day! I pray you make a speedy recovery.
