What’s the difference between the Sportsman trigger and the Featherweight trigger for the 98 Mauser?
The difference in feel comes from the location of the trigger pivot pin. On the Featherweight models the pin is equidistant between the trigger and the sear. The perceived movement is much less noticeable and the feel is more like a modern sporting rifle. On the sportsman models the pins location is higher in the housing giving the feeling of more movement at the trigger, resulting in more of a WWII battle rifle style of feel in that the movement is more noticeable.
Both the sportsman and the Featherweight triggers have substantial adjustability which was never the case with the original triggers. You can adjust the trigger to your preferred feel and with the lighter pull weight trigger comes substantial increases in accuracy.
