Trigger Pull

When talk of triggers arise, everyone always says light is best. This is true whether the discussion is about rifles or handguns. You have to have a light trigger pull for accuracy.

Personally, I’ve always preferred smooth. I would rather have a smooth pull with very little take up that breaks cleanly every time than one that is just light, as I’ve found that smooth and crisp usually makes the trigger feel much lighter anyway. Sure the whole world can be found in some triggers, but how much difference does that really make?

Now that is not to say that I want a heavy trigger pull. It’s just that I have found that in most cases a firearm can outshoot the shooter, and that a 1 to 2 pound reduction in trigger pull is not going to make that much of a difference in most shooters’ groups. There is even a point where the trigger pull can be reduced beyond a shooter’s ability, making it a safety hazard.
