I believe the .01% is a guy who had the hammer fall as a result of bumping the stock?

That is what scares the hell out of me about aftermarket trigger jobs.

...and that is why I would gladly pay double for a factory RA trigger with a better (and by better, I mean good) pull.

I have exactly two hundred rounds of American Eagle through my rifle and when I had it on the range the other day I noticed that my trigger was not reseting and I would have to push it forward about 25% of the time. I will try the suggestions mentioned such as dry firing a couple hundred times but I had another issue come up on round 197.

The rifle fired, the bolt picked up the round, chambered it, the action was fired but there was a misfire. I started I/A drills and found the bolt to be locked forward. The only way I could clear the stoppage was to seperate the upper and lower and then pry the bolt back with my knife which took some force. After looking at the round I found that it was not deformed and the primer had not been struck. I put the rifle back together and fired 3 more rounds out it without incident. The Bolt group and upper where not bone dry nor where they over lubricated.

Has anybody had this happen to them?

Finally got some good range time after getting my Bill Springfield trigger job. Much Better! Still haven't decided if I want to stick with a single stage or do the two stage. Thinking i'll stick with this one here!

Thanks Mr Springfield

The stock trigger is a POS. Thankfully it's the only bad part of a great rifle.

Send your lower to Bill Springfield and he'll put it right.
+1 to Bill. I am going to send all my triggers to him. His is a bargain, for $50 he turns your XCR trigger into one of those $200 trigger jobs you find on AR's.

I know I should be asking Bill himself, but do ya'll know if he can just modify my trigger to break cleanly w/o a 1st stage and still remain combat standard? Sorta like a stock AR trigger?

I can set up the XCR a few ways, both are still "2 stage".

The first is just a nice clean break in the 3.5 or 4.5 area. Still 2 stage but feels like a single stage.

2nd has stock the 2 stage feel, but the creep is reduced about 70% and the pull weight is reduced to around 5.5lbs.

Thanks,
Bill Springfield
