    I tried to adjust the trigger. I loosened the screw and thought it would fall out. Am I doing something wrong? If this gun shoots like I hope , I will go to a JARD trigger unless someone can convince me the factory trigger is good.

    Jard triggers are the right now drop in solution for feathery light trigger pulls.

    The MVP is still relatively new on the market and has had very little experimentation done with yet but a couple people are tinkering with it.

    Will the JARD Mossberg 4X4 trigger fit the MVP?

    One of the members here has installed the Jard trigger on his MVP and reported favorably.
    I beleive the MVP uses some 4x4 parts. I will search for the threads I got those from and post links in an update.

    Thank you Wood chucker. I think the factory trigger is OK, but I would like it quite a bit better, and I'm not sure I want to take apart and stone the factory trigger.

    Your welcome Gordon. By chance did you catch the part where the MVP trigger is adjustable and supposedly can be adjusted from 2 to 7 pounds ?

    Mines lightened as much as it can be. About 3 1/2 pounds I think.

    I'm multi tasking,swear I'll dig up and post the links by morning.

    Also I'm looking for a stock trigger for R&D work. If you do go with a Jard I am definitely interested in your old one.

    *UPDATE*

    I loosened the factory screw until it was wobbly loose and then just barely snugged it back up and my trigger pull is 2#11oz. It seems to be holding that pull consistently, but I worry about the screw falling out. I may put some medium locktite on the screw threads to see if I can lower the pull some more without loosing the screw.

    We're working along the same lines :) but have reached the limit of adjustment without alteration.

    Once I find the right ammo to wring out better accuracy, I will move forward on another trigger, and probably a ceracoat paint job. But, first I need to know this rifle is worth the investment.

    hello holeshot17 here a new member, i just got a mvp 18.5 inch last thursday 1/10/13 seem to shoot well first day out tried 40-60 grainers over 25.5 varget best 5 shot group was .721 inch @ 100 off bench.mine works fine with the factory 10 round mag but i have a 10 rd. pro-mag that the bolt goes over the top of the next round and also a d&m 10 rounder from a dpms ar that does the same thing,
    Also fiocchi factory 50 vmax loads shot 5 in 1.2 inches with the best 4 in .600inches seems to like 50-55 the best so far... best group was with 55 varmagedden bullets

    Also forgot: I have many varmint rifles in lots of diff. cals all with lighter triggers. I pulled the adjustment screw all the way out and took the spring out too. and it tests at 2-3/4 pounds on a good trigger scale, so I put them back in and turned the screw in to where it was solid and its still 2-3/4 lbs i didn't screw it in any more to see if it would go any higher. but i sure don't want it any higher. so inless it works itself in, I guess 2-3/4 lbs is what i get. 3 of my others varmint rifles are savage short action with rifle basix triggers set at about 12 OZ. and 1 remy 700 in 204 w same trigger @ 10 oz.

    What I did was take the screw out wrap a small piece of teflon tape around it.Screwed it back in about 4 or 5 threads then backed it out until it got to its lightest measured pull. 2# 1.9oz screw hasn't moved a bit.

    Good idea with the thread tape. Are you happy with the travel and pull? Are you going to keep this factory trigger or persue another?

    yes, it works really fine for me. The travel gives me a good feel and the release is sharp and consistent.For now I will just leave it alone.
    I just purchased a Savage Mod. 10 .308 with the accu-trigger. Out of the box the trigger pull was 2# 9oz. I can tell the difference just a little bit between the two. Which makes it easier switching back and forth from one gun to another. Didn't care for the plastic stock and cheap scope. Jury still out on accuracy,just to use to nickel sized groups with my MPV.

    I tired all the above with very little gains. I ended up going with a Jard 22oz trigger and can't be more pleased. Well worth with the money and the install couldn't have been any easier.
