    my red wolf trigger is so inconsistent it’s hard to shoot good groups. sometimes the trigger will break at 15 ounces. sometimes at 6 lbs. or anywhere in between. frustrating to say the least. the trigger is so sloppy in its plastic housing it can not contact the micro switch consistent. for a $3000 rifle it is shameful to put such a cheap peace in this high end gun. does anyone offer a improved steel trigger housing?
    i also posted this question on the daystate owners forum.

    thanks,
    Scott

    It could be rubbing on the housing. You can fix it by taking off the housing and removing a little material where the trigger post & blade passes through the plastic. I felt it too. a little bit of file work fixed it.

    When someone spends $3000, or even half that amount for a rifle, they shouldn’t need to take it apart and file away some material to make it work properly.  It should work properly right out of the box.

    I can’t believe what I’m hearing! I have a Red Wolf waiting for me at my parent’s house.

    I thought the trigger was just a mouse click type thing…like my Steyrs.

    This is bad…very bad…

    For that kind of money i would request return postage from where you bought it and send it back,,,thats alot of $$$ for a gun that has a trashed trigger.

    Apologies… it’s actually the base of the trigger, not the post and blade. The tolerance is just a little too tight. I think it was one of the “plastic injection bumps” if i remember correctly. 
    Didn’t bother me much at all. I just opened it up a little and got back to shooting. I completely forgot about it until this post came up.
    Here’s a pic of the area…

    You must remember that these are man made and things do go wrong. Hell we lost 2 space shuttles and I bet they thought everything was great. That being said I would think that 
    when you build a 3,000 dollar rifle before they were packaged to ship someone would do a very thorough inspection. I have a Red Wolf on order when I get mine I will look at the trigger guard right away.

    Thanks for the heads up.

    I hate to hear he word “plastic” mentioned when it comes to the internal moving parts of a rifle.

    i have had the trigger and housing off. it is not rubbing or binding. just to much slop in the fit of the trigger to the housing. i can wiggle the trigger side to side and twist it to. not a match grade trigger by any means. my grandsons $59 bb gun has a better trigger.

    Sounds like something is genuinely wrong with yours? Maybe some spacer or bushing left out in a QC balls up. I’ve had several electronic daystates and none of the triggers did anything like what you’re describing. I’d send it back and make the dealer sort it or replace it.

    Were I building an electronic trigger it would NOT have a mechanical switch. It would have a good electronic hall effect no contact switch. Just my take.

    No issues with mine, it does suck to have it not right but that’s what warranties are for. As far as all the plastic comments go, have you looked at the world we live in. Hell go spend 60k on a vehicle and see how much plastic is controlling aspects of that. My only want now is to get a tin of those 25gr 22cal JSBs in my hands. Send it back and it will get fixed.

    No issues with mine & wouldn’t trade it.

    I’m sure Daystate will take care of you. It is their flagship rifle no less. 

    Keep us posted.

    You know I really don’t like being negative!, but I have a Crown that isn’t up to par,( especially when I bought into everybody’s paid opinion of them you know the 3 utube stars I’m talking about! ) also I try to be very objective… but all this is getting old FX,-DAYSTATE need to back up all the Hype with real world results I think both are getting ahead of themselves in their claims! And I am done putting in any faith in two or three utube purveyors!, that I am sure learn quite a bit when touring these factories..(if you no what I mean!) this is hard earned $$$ we are paying and not getting what we pay for.

    bought my first PCP seven years ago. a HW100 FSB .177. still have it. it has by far the best trigger ever. 12 ounces no creep. no slack. still shoots like a laser. no plastic in this rifle. think i paid $1200 for it new. almost 1/3 what this first day state cost me. hope the daystate people read this forum. after all the daystate hype. my first impressions are not positive.

    Like I said before my trigger is fine I’m just wondering if the dealer you get it from is testing the rifles before they go out. I got mine from Ken Hicks and if I remember correctly he at least test fired it and inspected my Red Wolf before shipping.
