Daystate cocking problem
Posted 06 January 2012 - 07:10 PM
This is my first post (after looking through older posts) to see if I can get some help with a problem cocking a Daystate Huntsman Classic. It works perfectly at room temperature but when outside (cold) it won't "catch". I am presuming this must be to do with trigger adjustment but I have tried backing off as advised by the manual. Will I need to touch any of the other trigger adjustments?

I will give it another try tomorrow - I just didn't want to make it worse so I changed as little as possible! It must be quite a small change required as it works fine indoors (room temperature).

Just to give some feedback - I have adjusted trigger (seem to have run out of adjustment) and now the rifle cocks(sort of) but I am not confident that it is securely "caught" and now have occasional accidental trigger release.
I'm not sure what else I should now do - could the trigger sear faces be damaged? I have started a seperate thread (although maybe related on why my shots - chrono'd) are inconsistent.

I have seen a similar problem to this, were you could adjust the Ďweightí adjustment but it would make no difference to the trigger pull and also the gun would fire (occasionally) without the trigger being touched and it seemed more likely to happen in colder weather.
It turned out to be an issue with the spring which engages the sears when the gun is cocked, it had been distorted when it was fitted and was not giving enough pressure to engage the sears fully.
I have included a picture of a Daystate Harrier trigger so you can see the spring Iím talking about, this unit is similar but not identical to the Huntsman trigger unit. You can remove the parts by just removing the pins for each part of the assembly, trigger first and the rocker part of the sear, no need to remove the other part and then you can check the springs, be careful not to loose the springs.
Itís not a difficult job but if you donít feel confident about it you will need to take it to a gunsmith.
I hope this is useful to you.
