Please help.
I love the sar but am not familiar with the Geiselle bow trigger, I got the trigger pack as well.
My question is... When the gun is loaded/unloaded, charged/not charged the Geiselle trigger Bow has some small *play * in it when I tap on it on the SIDES of the trigger Bow, it clicks/moves.  It this how it's supposed to be or should it be snug and tight?

P. S.  It shoots just fine

Hmmm...I'll have to check this out for myself.

So your saying the trigger moves side to side?

Just slightly when tapping on it, it has a little wiggle play

My only thought here is that perhaps the retention spring not not fully seated in the trigger pin once it has been replaced?  That spring tension and the narrow channel of the pin should reduce side to side play to essentially nothing.

That is the first thing that comes to mind.

Is this small play normal in gun triggers?

I just checked mine. Side to side (lateral) play...there is the tiniest bit. Itís nearly imperceptible and I would have said no if I had not explicitly checked. No noises or clicks associated with said movement.

There is of course front to back play that can be adjusted via the hex adjuster provided to reduce takeup - but some takeup is normal for the Tavor platform.

As to your last question....the answer is that it depends on the rifle/pistol, who makes it, what type of action, etc.  On some the answer a yes. On others the answer is no.

How do I tighten mine up? For the side to side play

It should not have any play worthy of tightening so check your installation as I mentioned previously.

The pin holding the trigger bow in place has a recess in it that the tiny silver spring you installed with the bow (and I assume you followed the instructions and removed it first, reinstalled it later) passes though into the pinís channel, and intersects the pin in its center recess. This will prevent side to side movement in addition to providing necessary spring tension to the trigger.

If itís not that...not sure where to go next other than you posting pics so we can see your setup.

You have a logic branch: Yes you have a problem, or No this is normal.

Have you tried calling Geissele or IWI, spoken to a human?

Is it possible to put the factory parts back in to see how much the lateral play is in your stock factory trigger setup?  If the same or worse with factory, then NO. If better in the factory, then more likely YES, but still could be NO.

I would bet a quarter, this is normal (if it were me, mine) I would go and put 2000 rounds through it, and then see if I think about it again, or remember the question.
