I’ve had a couple of Remington’s come in my shop lately. They had the new trigger Remington X-Mark Pro triggers. Both of the triggers broke nicely. There’s only one problem. You really can’t work on them.
Remington has always put a coating over the adjustment screws on their rifle triggers so they could tell if anything had been adjusted. Having the trigger adjusted by anyone but them voids the warranty on the rifle. This really hasn’t stopped anyone because the triggers were easy to adjust, if you knew what you were doing.
Well that has changed with their X-Mark Pro triggers. They now allow the let off adjustment to be accessible but the other two screws are made of poor metal and a thread locker is used. Any attempt to adjust these screws with the appropriate Allen wrench will strip out the head of the screw.
Now with the way they’re shipped the let off and over travel screws really don’t need adjustment. They set that fairly well at the factory. The one I wish they would have left alone is the poundage screw. Adjustment isn’t possible on that screw. For a target quality trigger you have to go to an aftermarket trigger. Now, granted there are some great aftermarket triggers and I would do so if you are serious about competition. I just think it is a rip off for Remington not to allow competent people access to adjust their X-Mark Pro triggers. In my oppinion that’s just bad form.
I should add that Remington has updated the X-Mark Pro trigger. It now has a weight adjustment visible from the outside of the gun. I haven’t had the pleasure of seeing one yet but this should be a great trigger.
