Solo Trigger Replacement

The geometry of the Solo's stock trigger tends to gouge my finger. Not fun. I searched for a replacement trigger and found one by RTKTriggers.com.

Being mechanically savvy and experienced with changing triggers, sears, springs, etc, I don't see a problem with changing the trigger out myself, but was wondering if anyone has seen or knows of a video doing this. I have searched high and low but am unable to come up with one.

Pic of final product

with the help of RTK, I was able to replace the trigger. It looks and feels great.

I believe RTK supplies those trigger replacements for Galloway Precision who will soon supply aftermarket springs for the SOLO.

Was the new trigger install difficult?

Once I got the hex head screw removed, it was just a matter of patience, and persistence to get the parts to fit just right in a limited space. Use of a tweezers or hemostats helps to get the leaf spring to fit back in helped.

What was the cost with shipping? And how long did it take to install?

You can't get your SOLO to reliably function and now you want to replace the trigger?



Are you for real?

Yes, I like to throw money at things that don't work!

Agree on pricey. But, I'm picky about feel and performance and the stock trigger did not feel good to me. Interestingly, go view Hickock45's utube videow on the Solo and if I remember correctly, he had to put a bandaid on his finger after running a lot of rounds through it.
