yeah rdrader i cant blame my wife for buying me a gun with a plastic trigger. my uncle had the same gun and i always noticed how accurate he was with it. so she told me the price range for my christmas present so i picked that gun. i never had noticed before about the trigger. i still like the gun and use it during gun season. its very accurate. it is just remingtons cheapest gun they made. i hear this year they came out with model 770 which is another cheap gun from remington. i read a write up on it (the 770) in a magazine and the author said though the gun may be cheap and the trigger assembly not to his liking he still got accurate groups out of it.
