    …and in the darkness shoot it

     

    What is the best trigger you have come across on break, creep, adjustability and so on?

    For me? A polished Rekord is my favorite. Amazing that they are standard in HW rifles.

    I had an A.Z. tuned Steyr LG110 at one point, It had a very solid stop on the first stage and then just think about releasing the shot and it was gone.

    I have an HW97.  An absolutely excellent trigger.  It cannot compare to the Daystate electronic trigger.

    For my collection, best would be Daystate Regal (this trigger has made me a trigger snob..its that good).

    Worst trigger would have to be on my Impact. I’ve spent hours trying to make it better and it still sucks.

    HW97 after work on my part.  On par with my TX200 trigger after work on my part. Then my Daystate Wolverine R trigger, after work on my part. Now it is a Daystate Red Wolf trigger after careful adjustment.

    My HW100BP-K is my favorite, and it's still at the factory settings.

    That's a tough question! I had a Mrod Tuned by Tim McMurray and the trigger was A1! I've had a few FX rifles that I tweaked the trigger to a crisp light break that was superb as well.  Not mention a Cricket .25 factory trigger isn't too shabby either.

    In the PCP world ….

     

    FWB P70 far and away the best in ALL respects !!!

    STEYR  Lg 100/110 a close second

    RAW / THEOBEN in @ 3rd   * And it is still one hell of a fine trigger !!

     

    In the Springer world ….

    Any HW with a REKORD trigger correctly adjusted.

    AA in the TX, HC, Prosport correctly adjusted.

    I recently acquired an HW100 Laminate Carbine.  It certainly seems to be an excellent rifle-very accurate and well made.  And the trigger is first rate, one of my favorites and possibly better than the HW in my mind.   It just seems that the best mechanical triggers will have a hard time comparing to the electronic triggers since they are simply a switch and can be set however one desires without having to worry about safety, bump fire, etc.  If they fail electronically then that is a different matter.

    Triggers are subject to personal preference, with maybe the most basic choice being, single or two stage. Personally, I believe two-stage triggers belong on auto-loading service rifles, and I prefer single stage otherwise. But, as I got into air rifles, I found that the European influence has resulted in almost universal use of 2 stage triggers. And there are some very good ones. I would place Anschutz, Steyr, RAW, and HW among my favorites. Most of the other triggers listed as 2 stage, are not, although they can be made to feel very good, such as the " 2 stage" Taipan Veteran. It is really a single stage with a lot of creep. The early movement is adjustable to a felt stop, but the sear is at its knife edge set on the hammer release the whole time. It feels very good, but it has none of the safety offered by a true 2 stage trigger. I would never trust its safety in the field, but always decock. Maybe the oddest trigger of all is on one of my favorite rifles, the FX Royale 400. Again, a fake 2 stage, but with some polishing, it can be made to feel okay, if you don't need anything less than about 9 ounces in let off weight. I think my favorite in a rifle that might see field use would be the Weihrauch in my HW100. For light pull, target-only use, a tie between Steyr and Anschutz. And the RAW works just as well, just doesn't have the same range of adjustments. The electronic trigger in my Red Wolf is very good, but IMO, no electronic trigger can fully match the crisp release of a properly tuned mechanical match-grade trigger.

    "IMO, no electronic trigger can fully match the crisp release of a properly tuned mechanical match-grade trigger."

    We'll have to agree to disagree on the above.  To my touch, the electronic trigger cannot be surpassed.  As you note, everyone has different feel.

    If we didn't have preferences, we would all be driving black Model Ts!

    I agree with Elh0102 on the electronic triggers. I like it, but not the best feel. Fwiw, Steyr's are fake 2 stage as well. Best I've felt were an FWB P70 and AA ProTarget.  ProTarget is really my favorite … true 2 stage and wonderful feel down to a measured 3 oz. Interestingly , the early Daystate Comp triggers could go down to 3 oz and the first "stage" could be extremely light so you could feel a definite wall for your second "stage" but I never liked something about the feel and could never really define it.

    "and could never really define it."

    That seems to be the crux of the matter.  Much like optics discussions, every shooter is a bit different and will prefer different setups.

    I agree that the rekord triggers are good, but the electric on the Daystate in my opinion is second to none!

    HW100 for me. 

    True 2-stage and fully adjustable, but simple and can be seen through the skeletonized trigger body with the action out of the stock. 

    They can be set for absolutely zero creep, and without the "hanging up" that other triggers can have. 

    They can be made plenty light out of the box, and scary light with a simple modification. 

    As far as spring rifle triggers go, I think the Rekord is second to the FWB300 series triggers. 

    Im always impressed at how good a spring rifle trigger can be considering it's holding back at least a couple hundred pounds, and can be set to ounces. Meanwhile PCPs and firearms have a fraction of the forces to deal with, and aren't much better in a lot of cases. Especially firearms with horribly heavy single stage triggers.

    Thanks for the correction on the Steyr. I don't have one anymore, so I guess I forgot the design. I have the Weihrauch, and you can clearly see the sears working in it.

    Agree completely-it's amazing that spring gun triggers can be as excellent as they are considering what they have to do.  And the HW100 trigger has also become one of my very favorites.
