Hello,

I just bought a model 1894 that has double set trigger. (See picture). From what I understand, after the gun is closed and cocked, you should be able to push the trigger forward until it clicks.  Mine doesn't do this. When I work the lever and cock the gun I see that the rear trigger looks like it "sets", but I cannot push it forward for the "click".  Is there some kind of adjustment for this? Any help would be appreciated.IMG_2248-1.JPGImage Enlarger

I also posted the gun in the "What's New" section of the forum. In reply to Gary's post "When Sights Mattered"

Thanks,

Al

Al,

You don't have to cock the hammer to have the set trigger function. You push the rear trigger forward to set it and it should click then pull the front trigger to fire it. If it doesn't set, the adjustment screw could be turned in too far at least that how a single set is adjusted.

Bob,

I'll give that a try when I get home from work.

Thanks.

Bob,

I tried backing the set screw out and the set trigger still won't set.

Al,

Then there is something messed up. Pull the stock and then you can look in there and see what is going on. You should be able to see as you try to set it, you can watch the catch moving and see if its missing the kickoff. Here is a copy of a article that will help you understand the set trigger.

Bob,

Thanks, I'll take a look. Hope I don't need new parts.

Did you ever get your triggers sorted out? I am looking for photos of the parts and am trying to make a set to restore mine.
