    I went to the range yesterday and I noticed that the accu trigger or whatever you wish to call it seemed stiff. It may have been just from not being shot in a while. As the day went on it got better, oiled it up, no results.
    Has this happened to anyone before, need some help on this one.

    I would have a qualified gunsmith check it...

    Try a good cleaning, degreasing and a light dry lube/teflon. Old lube may have picked up crud and hardened up.

    I have a few savage rifle with accu-trigger..on the 7-08 the spring under the adjustment screw was bound up or so it seemed, I gave it a wiggle with some needle nose and it seemed to be fine

    I fixed it, the grease from the factory gunked up I just blew it out with some compressed air and it worked

    Ya it's all better, I got it last may so i have shot it a few times. I only cleaned the trigger assembly once, I spray it with cleaner but I never did a full cleaning.
