I have a Remington 788 in 222 Remington that I use for Fox hunting. Well recently it has developed a problem with the trigger that has me puzzled. I like to take each of my rifles out of the cabinet every once in a while to dry fire them just too keep the feel of that particular rifle in my mind. Well this 788 has now developed a problem where when I open the bolt to cock it and then close the bolt, the sear is not catching to set the trigger. This might happen 2-3 times and then from there on it will set the trigger. Leave the rifle overnight and try it again the next day and the trigger will not set when the bolt is opened and closed for another 2-3 times and then it gets okay from there. What's up?
Guess I might have to buy a Timney replacement trigger.
