How do you adjust Trigger Pull on an Interarms Mark X.

I have an Interarms Mark X mannlicher stock chambered for .308. I bought this rifle new 24 yrs ago, but I have misplaced the manual. Anyone out there know how to adjust the trigger pull? Any help is greatly appreciated.

Hope this will be of some help! Will depend on what trigger you have...scroll down to trigger section if you have the adjustable one.

Also, this is a good place for manuals /if your looking for one!

Thank You.

Seriously. I have asked this question at some other sites and have had no response. I will check these out and let you know how I made out.
Again, thanks for your help.

I adjusted my Mark X (.25-06) by reading those instructions. The first thing i noticed was how crisp the pull became and how clean the break is. It literally felt 100% better than the trigger on my Rem 700 after I adjusted it to the same pull weight. After firing some high end custom rifles recently (some were over $3000 minus the scope) I have come to the conclusion that adjusted to 3lbs with no overtravel the Mark X trigger feels as good as any custom trigger that's adjusted similiarly in my opinion.

trigger

Sir;
On that Mk 10 trigger be sure the sear contact isn't so close so as to render the safety - unsafe.

"when all else fails, read the instructions."

Hi all. Thanks for all the response. I broke the rifle down to get at the trigger assembly and read and followed the directions on the various adjustments available. When I looked at all the components I noticed that the backlash adjustment screw locknut was backed completely off and that the screw was barely engaging the threads. I corrected the backlash adjustment and locked it down. Then I adjusted the trigger pull. I don't have fancy tools or scales to determine what the pull is in pounds, but I know what I like and set 'er there. And locked down the locknut. Reassembled rifle and went to the range. Firing speer .308 180gn mag tips at 300 yards. Before trigger adjustment, 5 shot groups 2.690" - 3.25". After trigger adjustment, Three 5 shot groups:
1. .879"
2. .819"
3. .936"
I have always liked my rifle, now I REALLY like my rifle.
Thanks!!!!!!!!!!
Eric
