GT 45 Question

Post by bbh791 on 5/15/2013, 7:58 pm

In the owners manual under trigger adjustments, screw 4 regulates the sear engagement. Does this mean it has to do with the trigger pull weight? Thanks to all.

When you are ready to try it at the range only load two rounds at first. And hang on!

In general, sear engagement has some effect on the trigger pull weight, but it mainly affects how much we feel the trigger move before it breaks. We used to call this "creep"; currently, if it is really smooth we tend to call it "roll". Some like a trigger that breaks cleanly without any creep or roll, and some actually like to feel a smooth roll before the break. Perhaps this is due to our increasing familiarity with striker-fired systems like the Glock and Springfield XDm.
Anyway, it is important to realize that there is a safety issue attached to the sear engagement. If you decrease it too much the hammer may tend to slip off of the sear and "follow", which can result in full auto firing. So if you monkey with the sear engagement be sure to only load 2 rounds in your testing as recommended above.

Also, make sure you know what is well down range from you. Because, you may make a second shot that mortars out there quite a distance.

it would make slow, timed and rapid fire go much faster.
