When I was learning to shoot as a kid in Kenya and in the UK, I never encountered any rifles with set triggers. I'd heard of them, but the general attitude in my family was that it was something for poncey target shooting. I wonder if this attitude is still prevalent in the UK? When I bought my first rifle in Germany, a BSA in 7x64, it had a double set, double phase trigger of the type known in Germany as an "Englisch Stecher". Like this one: I was very wary of that feature at first, but was comfortable enough with the un-set trigger pull. After many years and much brass I started using the set trigger, which gives a trigger pull of ~100grams instead of the unset pull of 800-1000 grams, for difficult shots. I'm now a convert and have just bought a single set trigger for my M98 in .375 H&H, once fitted all my rifles will have set triggers. Basically I'm a convert to the German way of shooting, I like the safety aspect of being able to use a fairly heavy trigger pull when shooting in woodland and scrub, where those prying brambles, twigs and grass blades could ruin your whole game drive, but also be able to select (and more importantly deselect using the safety and or the bolt lever) a hair trigger for finer supported shots. Does anyone else use a set trigger? What's the attitude to them where you are?
