Savage Triggers:


I am considering replacing the trigger in my Savage 110FP with a Canjar trigger. Would this be a worth while idea? Or are there any better triggers available for this rifle for a reasonable price? If possible, please e-mail me directly with your responses at

Thanks for your time,
John Thomas

John Thomas: Canjar triggers are an excellent trigger, but I'm not sure if they make one for Savage rifles. Several months ago I posted a person who is specifically making triggers for Savage, but his name and telephone escape me. With the factory Savage trigger, even if you can get the trigger mechanism from a Daisy Red Ryder, you are that much more ahead of the game. Good Luck. Great shooters, but shitty triggers.

Savage triggers, I must have a good touch or just been lucky with mine. After a little work (and I do mean little) the trigger is crisp and clean. Maybe I'm just used to mil triggers so it just seems so good.

Savage triggers: If you don't want to tune it, Canjar makes one, as has been stated, and there's a "Sharp Shooter" trigger also available. Both are sold by Midway. I'd recommend the latter.

thank's for your input. Could you give me some idea how much is involved in installing the Sharp Shooter trigger in the Savage rifle.

To Bill: The Sharp Shooter trigger is a straight-up installation "IF" (!!!) your stock has enough room for the trigger assembly itself. Otherwise, you'll need to relieve the trigger area as needed. If you have done trigger work, are not "tool challenged," and can look at things and figure them out, you'll be fine. Otherwise, take it to a gunsmith and have him install it. The manufacturer also does installations of his own product.
