How to adjust remington 710 trigger pull weight?

Andy Larsson Answered question September 7, 2022

It’s actually quite easy to adjust the trigger on a Remington 710. Here are the steps:

1. Remove the action from the stock by unscrewing the screws that hold it in place.

2. Pull out the action and look at where it connects to the trigger. You’ll see two small screws on either side of the connection point.

3. Use a screwdriver to loosen these screws, then adjust the trigger by twiddling them with your fingers until you have a light and smooth pull.

4. Re-tighten the screws and put the action back into the stock. You’re done!

And remember, always test your new trigger pull weight before you shoot!


If you want to increase the pull weight on your Remington 710, start by adjusting the screws on the trigger. Usually, there is one or two screws located at the bottom of the trigger which you can use to make it heavier. If that does not work for you, another thing to try would be adjusting a screw at the back of the trigger. This will change the sear engagement, which will in turn increase the pull weight.

If those adjustments don’t get rid of all the creep, or if you want to make more drastic changes, you’ll need to take apart the rifle and modify some parts. One common modification is to remove some material from the connector bar, which will reduce how much force is required to trip the trigger. You can also try changing the springs in the trigger assembly, which will change how much tension is required to pull the trigger. As always, be very careful when making any modifications and make sure you follow all safety instructions.


The Remington 710 trigger adjustment is a fairly simple process. First, remove the magazine and make sure the gun is unloaded. Then, use a Phillips head screwdriver to remove the screws that hold the stock in place. Once the screws are removed, you can pull the stock off of the gun.

Next, use a hex wrench to loosen the screw on top of the trigger assembly. This will allow you to adjust the trigger pull weight. You can then tighten the screw to hold the adjustment in place. Finally, reattach the stock to the gun and tighten down the screws. Make sure to test out your new trigger pull weight before hitting the range!

To change the trigger on your Remington 710, follow these steps:

1. Remove the screw that holds in place the trigger assembly and adjust it according to the manufacturer’s specifications.

2. File down any rough edges of triggers that come into contact with your fingers – this will make it easier to pull the trigger and hopefully reduce “creep” in its mechanism.

3. Adjust the tension on springs which controls how quickly/easily the trigger fires.

There are a few ways that you can adjust the trigger on your Remington 710.

One way is to use the adjustment screws located on the back of the trigger assembly.

Another way is to use an Allen wrench to loosen the screw located on the front of the assembly, and then adjust it using a small screwdriver.

You can also use an aftermarket trigger assembly to achieve a custom fit. Whichever method you choose, be sure to follow all safety instructions and guidelines when making any adjustments.
