The predator is basicly a Winchester M70 with nicer wood stock from what I have read about that gun. Although I haven't had one in my hands, I do own some M70 and their trigger is very simple to adjust.

After removing the barreled action from the stock to get access to the trigger group, all you need is a small wrench and screwdriver to adjust the trigger. If the trigger doesn't have alot of over travel than the wrench is all that you will need. The top nut is what holds the spring on the over travel screw and the amount of tension on that spring is what controls the trigger pull wieght (for the most part).

Thats the short version if you need more let me know and I'll give you the long one.

Hope this helps
