I've been a lifelong fan of the Set Trigger. Have had a couple of the 'push forward to set' trigger, but never have I owned a double set trigger (I'm sure my terminology is off, but I think you catch my drift).
The ones I've owned in the past, and still own are the CZ 527s. I love these rifles, but I only find them in 223 and 7.62x39...how many of those can a guy have?
Does anyone else currently make rifles with either of these triggers in them? I'd love to find something in a .308 or possibly even a .260 with this?
Some muzzleloaders have a set trigger that allows the shooter to advance the trigger and set it so that very little additional pressure is required to fire.
There are three different set trigger designs.
Single-Set: A single trigger. Push the trigger forward to set it. A gentle squeeze then fires the gun.
Double-Set, Single-Phase: A two-trigger system. Pull the rear trigger to set the front trigger for firing.
Double-Set, Double-Phase: A two-trigger system with two options. Pull the rear trigger to set the front trigger for a “hair-trigger” firing, or simply pull the front trigger for normal firing.
Once a set trigger has been set, you must make the shot or uncock before the gun is carried anywhere or left unattended, since the lightened trigger creates a safety hazard in those situations.
