I have a Supersport II and plan on using it for trap shooting. The 7lb trigger seems a little too high. Has anyone been able to lighten this trigger easily? I have some experience modifying triggers...but usually follow directions. Thanks for any help.

Benelli does it under warranty. 7 lbs. is out of spec.

I called Benelli.....5-8lbs is typical....they will not adjust lower...only if it had came above 8lbs.

Then I called Briley.....$75...but it will be a 3 month wait. I forgot to ask what weight it would end up being.

I cant believe if Briley only wants $75 that its a hard job to do.

Custom work can be whatever you are willing to pay for.

Benelli has different trigger designs based on the gun. Benelli will not promise you a light trigger on a SuperNova, for example.

I've been through this several times: The trigger was evaluated and adjusted by Benelli Customer Service, improving the original break weight of 6-1/2 lbs. to 4-3/4 lbs. as measured by Lyman Electronic trigger gauge

I've never had as miserable a trigger as 7 lbs. on a Benelli, but the factory triggers on my M2 and Vinci, were adjusted, under warranty by Benelli. I wasn't happy with the 5 lb. trigger on my Vinci: Benelli lightened it to 3-1/2 lbs.:

Thanks Randy....I will give them another call and be a little for aggressive with them. I can never understand when a person spends $2000 on a gun, that it can never come with a good trigger....fact is...most people that spend serious money on guns, want a good trigger.

Well, we all have different priorities, personal likes, and dislikes I suppose. Triggers are one area where it can't be automated and quality control really jumps out. The trigger array is the primary shotgun control there is: why anyone would tolerate a trigger that detracts in any way from their personal shooting experience is beyond me. Of course, lots of things are apparently beyond me. :shock:

I don't expect a race trigger on a hunting gun and trigger groups that are pinned to blocks of plastic have their limitations. Nevertheless, no way should the trigger break weight be as heavy (or nearly as heavy) as the entire gun, nor should any hunting trigger be much more than 5 lbs. to be considered reasonable.

The answer is "yes" get ahold of Rob Roberts at gobbler guns, he is the gunsmith for benelli turkey and waterfowl special edition line. I purchased the sbeII turkey edition gun 2 years ago and it has a 3-1/2lb trigger and it's crisp with no creep. Bottom line he is the best Smith on benelli shotties.

Give benelli another call. They wrote the book on customer support...you can throw the warranty card away. The support is lifetime. The design is a real work of art.

It's the only autoloader I would ever buy.
