Thats odd. My Shootingsight triggers (2) do not exhibit that behavior.Just installed the Shooting Sight trigger in my 17s and it's got a very crisp break and smooth takeup. What I don't like about the trigger is before the stage1 takeup, there's a ~1/32" takeup before starting the regular stage1 travel. It's almost like what a true drop-in trigger unit would exhibit if it was loose on the pins, but still spring preloaded at that point - not actually loose and floppy. Anyone else notice this? It's a little unnerving as it feels like it's up against the break at that point.
