I need some trigger help.


Recommended Posts

I have a TriggerTech Diamond and although it will go gown to 1 lb I have it set at about 2.5.

I have several times (live fire only) had the hammer follow the bolt home and  when the trigger is pressed its dead. Will not fire. I can manually work the charging handle and the rifle with fire. I have tried to reproduce the problem manually working the bolt and it only seems to do it during live fire. 

Also important, I thought i hada faulty trigger so I swapped it out with a second trigger (same make model). Problem persists. 

 

Any ideas? 

 

Lantac upper/lower lantac buffer/spring triggertech safety

 

thanks!

the rifle picks up the next round fine an locks back on an empty mag.

Does the bolt lock back at the bolt face or front of the carrier? Put 1 round in the mag and make sure the bolt catch is engaging  the bolt face back and not the carrier.

I had the exact same problem with a triggertech adaptable trigger.  Triggertech was extremely responsive - i sent the trigger to them and they tested it in several guns but couldn’t reproduce the behavior.  I reproduced it in at least 2 lowers and ended up moving it to a lower where it didn’t exhibit the same problem.  I also adjusted it to nearly the heaviest trigger weight.  I couldn’t figure out why it exhibits the behavior in some lowers but works flawlessly in others.  It’s currently in a very stock rifle-length buffer rifle and has been solid.

 

Triggertech gave me all possible options - from replace to refund. I appreciated their customer service so much I kept the trigger and still use it. 

I’d suggest check directly with them - they were very responsive for me.

Did the bolt that was giving you issues get tested in the lowers? When I switched bolts (from Lantac to JP) my issue totally disappeared.
