Default Ithaca Mod. 72 Saddlegun .

I have this one in 22lr and is my only lever gun . I've look for info on the trigger pull on a lot of sights with no luck . The rifle shoots well , but does have a hair trigger . Anyone out there have info on adjustment ? I can live with it , but I don't let the Grandkids use it just for that reason . Bob Made in West Germany by ERMA . 73-79

Bob,
It may just need to be disassembled and cleaned. .22's can get very fouled over time. I'm sure there is a video on line somewhere that can help. Eddie

Had it apart when I bought the rifle . I wish I would have fired it before I did . My Bad . This is a good idea , so will take it down and check trigger-sear area for anything I could have missed . Thanks , Bob

If you have an older model 72, there is a small screw that protrudes from the receiver near the trigger. This screw does NOT adjust trigger pull, but rather is related to the feed system of the rifle. Best not to mess with it.

Check out some of the instructional videos on the internet which might help you.

Bob,
Check the trigger spring. It may need stretching or replacement.
