The Timney Browning X-Bolt Trigger is fully adjustable for Sear Engagement (Creep), over travel (Follow through) and pull weight.
Adjustment of the pull weight is completed by turning the pull weight screw with a 5/64 hex Wrench. Adjustment of the sear engagement and overtravel are completed using a .050 hex Wrench.
Sear engagement controls the amount of movement the trigger has before it breaks. Sear engagement is custom set at the Timney Factory and shouldn't need adjustment. However, if you want to adjust your triggers sear engagement (Creep) the procedure is as follows:
With the rifle unloaded and cocked. Engage the safety. turn the sear engagement screw clockwise until it stops. Slowly turn it counter clockwise 1/8 of a turn or one flat of the .050 hex wrench. The safety should move freely but the trigger should not move when the safety is engaged.
Overtravel (Follow Through) is the distance the trigger moves after it fires. Timney Trigger Jedi's adjust the overtravel to factory specifications but overtravel is a matter of preference and can be increased or decreased to match your preference. The over travel screw is on the front of the housing just above the pull weight screw. With the trigger in the fired position and using a .050 hex wrench, turn the screw clockwise until it stops. Once the screw stops, turn the screw counter clockwise 1/8 of a turn or one flat of the hex wrench. Squeeze the trigger as you turn the screw to the desired amount of follow through. BE CAREFUL if the overtravel is set too tight the trigger will not fire.
Pull weight is controlled by the bottom screw on the front of the housing. Using a 5/64 hex wrench turn the screw clockwise to increase the pull weight or counter clockwise to decrease the pull weight. From the factory the pull weight is set at 3lbs.
