I do several H&R trigger jobs a week, setting the pull weight down to around 2 1/2 lbs. for most guys and then invariably, I hear back from no less than half of them saying MY GUN WON'T SHOOT WHEN I PULL THE TRIGGER!!!

Well, problem is that even though the trigger pull is lightened, creep free and breaks like glass, you have to PULL THE TRIGGER and keep pulling the trigger, even after the trigger breaks...

This all has to to with the design of the gun and namely, the TRANSFER BAR SAFETY! Unlike a good bolt action rifle or even a gun like the T/C Contender or Encore, where you can just squeeze the trigger and it will fire, with the H&R, you have to pull the trigger until it stops to make it fire every time. If you do not, the gun WILL NOT FIRE!!!

Test this for yourself and before sending the frame to me for a trigger job -

1 - For safety reasons, remove the barrel from the frame...

2 - Cock the hammer...

3 - With your thumb on the hammer, pull the trigger but, do not let the hammer fall...

4 - As soon as the hammer/sear breaks, remove your finger from the trigger and slowly lower the hammer...

5 - You will now notice that the hammer comes to a complete stop BUT, the firing pin is NOT struck and is NOT sticking out the breech face...

6 - Pull the hammer back again...

7 - This time, keep finger pressure on the trigger and pull it all the way back, while at the same time holding the hammer to keep it from falling...

8 - Now, with the trigger all the way back to a full stop, slowly lower the hammer and watch as the transfer bar safety remains in the UP position, allowing the hammer to hit the transfer bar safety, which in turn allows it to strike the firing pin and as such, the firing pin is now sticking out in front of the breech face...

Again, you have to fully "squeeze the trigger" or the gun will NOT fire - PERIOD!

This is why H&R puts such heavy springs in their triggers. This heavy pull makes you automatically pull harder on the trigger and out of reflex, you automatically pull it all the way through. With a reworked trigger and a lighter pull, you still have to make a conscious effort to keep pulling the trigger...

 One word of caution. DO NOT dry fire these guns or you WILL break the transfer bar safety - guaranteed...

For those requesting a trigger job, the price is $75 return shipped...

If you do NOT remove the hammer spur if your receiver has one, there is a $50 "aggrevation" fee for me having to remove it. Otherwise, you will most likely not get it back because I invariably forget to put them back on and they get throwed away...

If you send in a "complete gun" for a nothing more than a trigger job, there will be an extra $100 added to your bill. If you refuse to pay it, your gun will be turned over to our local Sheriffs Department, where you can deal directly with them to see about getting your gun back, and it WILL cost you a lot more than the price of a trigger job!

My point being - if you want just a trigger job, then send me just the receiver with nothing attached. I cannot make it any simpler than that!
