    Slop in trigger of 94.

    I have been doing some sight changing on my recently purchased used 94,and while doing so I noticed the trigger has a lot of dead slack.It seems to work just fine,but it is pretty sloppy.As long as it's safe I can deal with it,but is this normal?

    My pre 64 is the same and it does seem strange, but it doesn't seem to matter...

    Mine's a Post-64 and its sloppy as well. Nature of the beast.

    Yep, that's the way they are. Only notice it if I am shooting downhill.

    I noticed it the first time Dad let me shoot his 94 when I was a kid. I asked if it was broke.
    "Nope", he said. It gives my itchy trigger finger something to do until I spot game.

    It's normal, as the trigger was designed to float so that the trigger safety plunger (actuated via closing the lever) would positively engage/block the trigger.

    My ae is the same ,like to take up the slack and then a bit more pressure and bang, makes you concentrate.

    Thanks.I really like the gun,and have enjoyed learning about it,as I tinker with it.I am probably one of the few people that never had a 94 before.

    Nope...I just got mine 2 years ago....I've been hunting/shooting since I was 10...so that's....46 years now...and I didn't really care much until about 5 years ago. I then got the itch to fill the 30-30 need in my little collection. It was just last year I bought my 35 Rem Marlin 336....and I've wanted one of those since I was 16....sometimes I'm just late to the party too.

    94's are neat trim deer hunting package.

    I hear down in Texas, after rattling in a big ole buck, you can tickle the trigger just so and get em in real close.
