Can anyone reckoned an aftermarket trigger for a non accu trigger savage 116?
I'd like to install myself if not to difficult but not afraid to pay to have it done right.
Or:
Is there anything that can be done to the original non accuteigger to make it crisp and light?


It ain't easy being me.

I had a 110WLE chambered in 300 Savage that pre-AccuTrigger and I installed the Basix Trigger. I found the work easy and the trigger outstanding. The trigger really changed the rifle for the better.

Is it a center feed or staggered feed model? If it has the older 3 screw trigger, they can be tuned really well, and turned down to very lite pull weights safely.

Not sure but I did notice one screw that looked like it might adjust it. Was scared to turn it.
Shot 30 factory rounds today. 5 to zero at 100 and the rest at 314 on my 12" AR 500 target.
After pulling left and low I was able to figure the heavy trigger out and was consistent.
I would still like a lighter trigger. Probably have one installed after Christmas.

Rifle basix trigger. Turn my 110 into a taxi driver.
