SBE Trigger Problem


Recommended Posts

Just received a used SBE I purchased online. Gun in extremely good condition. Fired today for first time and trigger not working properly. Nothing happens when I pull trigger, then gun fires when I release trigger? Any advice. The place I bought the gun is very reputable and agreed to take it back unconditionally, but they fired the gun before sending and said it worked flawlessly. any suggestions? thanks!

i had 3 shells in the gun and it cycled properly once fired, but wouldnt fire until I released the trigger each time. i completely disassembled the trigger mechanism and there was no dirt or debris. All parts seemed to be in good condition and springs looked good. I'm totally stumped? when I pull the trigger the catching mechanism (on top and towards stock) holds onto the hammer, then when I release the trigger, that mechanism releases the hammer and it fires. ?????????

Don't know if this applies to your SBE, but there are triggers known as "release triggers" that sporting clays/trap shooters will have installed in their guns. Pulling the trigger will set the trigger; releasing it will fire. Supposed to help overcome jerking the trigger...


It would be the first time I ever heard of one of these on an SBE, but ya never know...
