I had a problem using Canjar set trigger on a No. 1. There was no problem with the trigger function and I enjoyed the 'set' option. The problem was with the slow lock time of the Ruger. Between the time that the set trigger clicked and the rifle actually fired, my whole life could pass before my eyes;  I knew I was about to get belted! .375 Mashburn! Flinch inducing!

Only thing slower would be a Snider.

My #4 Ruger has a Kepplinger trigger and the sear is moved back .300 and has a stronger spring.  Very fast now with super light trigger.
  

If a waffle falls over on a breakfast table and no one is there to hear it, did the waffle make a sound?

A set trigger increases lock time, only make matters worse for a rifle with slow lock time to begin with. You should be able to get the Canjar down to a very light pull without the set feature. Mostly depends on end use.

End use! Yes. I used a single set on a highwall for years. The set was only used if required for the shot ; perhaps 10% of the time. But if the rest was good and the target small, It was so nice to be able to push the trigger ahead, setting it, and then fire with absolute precision.

I put a Kepplinger on my #3 Ruger and it speeded things up quite a bit. It's been a long time but I remember removing some of the linkage in the factory trigger to install the Kepplinger. Lots of overtravel when it kicks off but it's still light and fast. What's a #4 Ruger? Pictures??

That only applies to Ballards.

That would be a Ballard #3 with parts missing. Or a #3 Ballard barreled action.

Some might call my rifle a 3 1/2. I prefer to work with whole numbers as I never learned fractions but I know how to add a few numbers under ten. 

Far as I know it only works on Rugers.  Undecided

No one has asked about that rear sight so I guess I'll have to. What in the world is it? It looks like it's set up have a peep at the guy on the next bench over.

Central sight. Long range Canadian made Central sight. 

Canadians don't care what stuff looks like.  Grin
