And/or before he puts any rearward pressure on it? ◀Previous Post Next Post▶ RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Remember: He’s Gonna Find Out Who’s Naughty or Nice Lever-Action Ballistics Comparison: .30-30 vs .357 Magnum Remington Finally Says Goodbye to Its Ilion, New York Production Facility 3 COMMENTS It appears that the officer may have had his finger on the trigger before removing it from the trigger guard. If so, he may have taken up some of the sear spring tension, and turned the trigger into a 'set' trigger. From a safety standpoint, it makes no difference: that particular gun, at least, is dangerous. A (loaded) gun should fire *every time* the trigger is pulled, and *only* when the trigger is pulled. If the trigger is touched beforehand, the gun should either fire (assuming an adequate trigger pull) or not fire. Period. Dot. End of story. Reply Not really. Don't rule out a scam. Remington's payouts for this problem are well known.
