Guns-Set Triggers-Please describe a set trigger. I have a Model 1894 Winchester carbine which has what I believe is a set trigger. There is a little part with a pin that blocks the trigger when the lever is down and is pushed back by the finger-lever when the action is closed. Is this a set trigger?
What you describe is merely a safety device to prevent accidental discharge before the gun is closed and locked. A set trigger is one that may be “set”, so that a very light pressure will fire the gun. There are three styles used by American Manufacturers, namely, the single set trigger which is adjusted by pushing it forward on the rear trigger and the gun fired by a pressure of the front trigger; and last, the Schuetzen double set trigger, which is set by a pull on the rear trigger. Set triggers are only furnished to special order and most manufacturers refuse to make them at all.
