The trigger job is another quick and simple fix, first step was to polish out the sear. On top of polishing, I also grind off some of the sear on the trigger to lower the creep.
** IMPORTANT NOTE ** without the accu-trigger mechanism, the Axis is technically unsafe for a light trigger. Without a trigger safety, the rifle is prone to mis-fires if the gun is dropped. Do not modify the trigger if this gun is to be used for hunting.
The end result is a trigger that weight 2lbs. I had to strengthen the weight to 2.5lbs as a hard slap on the bolt would set off the sear. At 2.5 lbs I can slap the bolt down as hard as I can without any mis-fires. Though the rifle is still prone to mis-fires if dropped.
The gun shoots great, and with cheap PMC X-Tac ammo I was getting around 2″ groups at 100 yards. Then I put on my reloads with AR-COMP and Sierra 69gr GTHP, and I was getting ridiculous accuracy! Those were reloads I made for my AR-15, and I was totally taken by surprise on how accurate this load is for a gun with a completely different barrel length and twist rate.
