Striker Model 501 Trigger Adjust?
Anybody know how to adjust this trigger? Mine's a bit heavy at 5 lbs. and
creepy.

Not sure about adjusting but if you can get one of these you'll be very happy.

Does anyone know if that trigger would fit my Striker in 300wsm?

No,

it's only for the rimfire strikers which are just short barreled rifles in a pistol stock.

I am certainly no gunsmith but I did use the 3 links below to perform the trigger work on my 2 personal strikers.

After reading the articles several time I have enogh knowledge of the relationship of the adjustments to take on my own triggers.

Good Luck,

If you have a second or third generation gun where the trigger is tipped from the front and not the rear like the first generation with the rollers you can buy a rifle basix 110 trigger and cut the finger spur off and install the rest of the trigger and then have a coil spring instead of the piano wire.
Much more adjustable

The savage stiker 501 is a .22LR pistol not the 510-516 series centerfires.
The trigger mechanism is completely different. Should be a screw in front of the trigger lever that when turned out reduces trigger pull. A shaft behind the trigger lever locked by a nut is used adjust the sear engagement.

Can buy a Rifle Basix replacement sear mechanism for about $80 that will get you down to less than a pound pull.

Can get the standard trigger down to less than 3 lbs. if you use a lighter
return spring and polish the surfaces .

I got one of Dell Taylor's triggers when he made them. Sweet is the only magic word that fits. As good as my XP specialty triggers.
