Warthog Trigger Adjustment
OK, I am generally a smart guy, but I may have done something dumb.
I just bought a Para-Ordinance Warthog. A tiny 10+1 .45 SAO. I read through the booklet first, nothing on the trigger. Specs: Trigger pull 4-6 pounds. And on the neat, cut-out trigger there is an allen bolt, with a wrench in the box.
Ding! (completely sober) I can adjust the trigger pull from 4 to 6! Let's play with this! Screwed in a modest amount, no change I can feel. Screwed out a modest amount, no change. At one of these extremes, the trigger would not fire. . . Set back to where my memory said the bolt was initially.
Dry fired quite a bit, dis- and re-assembled several times. Hit shooting range, put 70 rounds of the (customers on forum) recommended rounds through it.
Wonderful pistol! Beautiful, small, mild kick, etc. But the trigger is a bit rough. . . Enough to impair my aiming. email to Para-Ordinance, get back:
"The trigger adjustment is for over travel. Be very careful how much you tighten the over travel screw. If you tighten it too much, you can get light or no firing pin hits.
Also, if the over travel screw is too tight, it can damage the sear."
I'm not sure what "over travel" is. Any ideas on how to adjust other than "not too tight?" Do I just need to put a few hundred rounds through this still-tight pistol?
