Trigger Modification Statement

Postby Barrett1 » Mon 26 Jul, 2010 2:10 pm

Barrett 82 series rifles are engineered to provide years of safe and reliable service.

Barrett Firearms Mfg. Inc. strongly discourages any modification on or to any parts which result in lowering the trigger pull weight of 82 series rifles. Alterations to these parts create a rifle that is unsafe to fire. In addition to safety, these modifications also reduce the reliability of the rifle.

The factory trigger pull weight of the 82 series of rifles is 7-9 pounds. Any rifles found to be out of specification should be returned to Barrett for inspection.

For service contact Barrett Firearms to obtain a return authorization number:

Barrett Firearms Mfg. Inc.

ok quick question as stated on lins site this does void the warenty...but the only thing that this upgrade does is replaces the exact same parts with a coated part. i dont see how this could make the rifle unsafe its the same parts with a coat on them. would you mind explaining why this would cause any problems thanks
hope for the best prepare for the worst

Our rifles are tested with factory installed and manufactured parts to ensure the rifle exceeds safety standards that have been set by our military and BFMI.

Changing factory installed components or modifying them will result in a rifle design that hasn’t been tested to our standards; therefore, our policy is to void the warranty.

Specifically, altering a trigger component’s geometry or surface finish, may result in a rifle more prone to unintentionally fire, which could result in personal injury or damage to the rifle.

the specs as to my knowledge havent changed and the parts have not been altered. the parts are identical to those i swapped out. but i do understand some are shortning springs and adding wedges but in this case (lins upgrade) its just a coating. and yes i understand it voided the warenty but i have had mine for a year and a half so it was allready void. as far as i no hes takeing old parts probley sand blasting the factory coat off and recoating. so are you saying the rifle is no longer safe just want to no what im talking about when i speak to others about it.

Wrong..the coating alters the coefficient of friction to decrease trigger pull...
