Sear assembly adjustment how to?

Does anyone have a how to on adjusting the sear pin assembly?

I moved some parts from mag to next, and one of the sears wasn't cocking the trigger. I fixed it, but I want to make sure I didn't over-fix it, and I would like to know how to fine tune it later on down the line. What characteristics will you notice when it's adjusted to be too short? Too long?


Thanks guys for all the help you have been giving me. Before I never touched anything on my mags- there was no need. Give them a bath and a dosage of gold cup and they never complain

when the gas is on, the trigger rod should just barely NOT touch the back of the trigger. (the old "can I slide a piece of paper between the parts" measurement is useful here)

At that point you should be 100%.

If the rod is set way too long the gun won't work at all (The trigger will have almost no possible movement). If it's only a little too long it may work for a few shots then jam up. Not really sure what too short symptom would be. My guess is you have lots of trigger movement but rod doesn't get pushed in enough to fire.

I like the idea of there should be a little bit of gap between the finger rest and frame of the trigger when pulled. Similarly you should be able to pull the trigger forward slightly so it isn't quite in contact with the end of the rod when in the rest position. If both these conditions are present then you know the frame and trigger isn't limiting the travel of the sear.

Gees guys, it's a 1/16th of an inch gap. C'mon. Get it right.
