View Full Version : Rifle Basix Triggers

Anyone ever try one? I am thinking of buying one for my savage. One model is $135 for 4oz to 3 pounds. The other model is $70 and will go 1 pounds to 3 pounds. They are supposed to be owner installable as well. I might get the 1 ld model because I think 4oz may be to light. Right now my trigger is about 2.5 pounds.

Slowly trying to take all the variables out of my savage.

Don't like the accutrigger? Or just want to go lower?

FWIW, I put the trigger from my 12fv into my 10fp so I could get it down to about 2 lbs. You could always order a 12fv trigger from savage.

My pops had a Stevens 200 that we put a Rifle Basix or Timney in (I can't remember which) and it was pretty good. Easy to install and adjust.

For a tactical rifle, to be used in the field, I wouldn't want to go much lower than 2 lbs. For a bench gun, maybe.

Just thinking of going lower. I like the accu-trigger. That reminds me. I'm glad you reminded me it is not a bench gun :) I need to take the single shot follower out.

FWIW, this was shot using the 10fp trigger in my 12fv last night. Its adjusted as low as it will go-right around 2.5 lbs. This is some load development using some old 4064. Your 10fp in 223 is going to be a kick. I love watching my impacts with no recoil!

I've got one on my Marlin 917V. All I can say is it's light. Way light. Keep the accutrigger. Get the Rifle Basix if you're going strictly bench.
