I'm adjusting the triggers on 330 body grips and would like to know how much trigger movement you experienced folks consider acceptable. I'm measuring at the bottom of the unbent trigger wires, 7 inch long trigger wires.
Thanks, Richard

While I hate to do this but go to the Traps and Equipment Archives, and search for Dobbin's Modification. In the final adjustment, I like to have between 1.5 and 2 inches of travle at the bottom of the trigger wires (using a 9-inch trigger)

Thanks Hal, the Dobbins adjustment is what I'm doing, I must have missed the movement length.
