Hello, I have a Schutzen style 1885, 32-40 caliber, and I'd like to try and fit a double set trigger. Preferable without any permanent alteration to the rifle. The Schutzen configuration for my rifle though ancient isn't original per the factory letter. Is it feasible, and if so where can I source the parts needed for the conversion?

Thanks for your help

Try Buckingham's (731-559-4169).  It'll be very pricey, if you can find what you want, as you'll need a complete lower tang assembly.

There is more to it than just replacing the lower tang (trigger assembly).  If your rifle currently does not have a set trigger, you will also need to replace the hammer, and the hammer fly. It takes someone who really understands what they are doing to convert from a non-set trigger to a fully functional set trigger.
