Bulldog 440 trigger

Post by drywallerdave1 » Sat Feb 02, 2019 12:06 pm

How does the bulldog 440 trigger compare to the bulldog 400??? I have the 400 but the take up is the longest on any crossbow or gun I have ever owned. Seems like I squeeze forever before I finally engage the trigger. This annoys me enough for me to consider buying a new crossbow. Thanks

Night and Day. The 440 uses the new trigger design. Which is available drop in for your 400 as well
Micro-Hybrid-bulldog "PitBull370"
MOBU Micro BD345 "Greener"
Xtra Micro BD310 "Small-Fry"
Micro Axe MOBU.

In addition, the new trigger can be changed back and forth from a single to a double stage trigger.

Thanks for the idea. 200.00 is much cheaper than 1400.00... I really like the bulldog 400. Except for the trigger.... I think I will try it out.

bulldog 400 has a transfer bar that goes from lever to base of trigger housing the play is in the bolt holes in the bar. while back I sent complete
bow to port huron bow came back the same. what I see is its like the older 2 stage triggertech and I have gotten use to it. as far as putting the new pro trigger in you will still have the same play. only way its going away is with a tighter machined transfer bar. in fact I had a single
stage triggertech and I put factory trigger back in. I have the bow apart and I can take a picture of the bar no way to post on here but I could email a picture .

( while its apart im going to make a tighter bar originals a stamped plate)

The new ACP in 2 stage setting will eliminate all of that . None on my linkages show the same movement, but maybe earlier models did I suppose

some one makes that piece custom aftermarket with a bushing they will get rich because if you shoot some it will need replacing. I just lived with it. my bow was preowned from a member and was shot enough that when I got it the speed was 367fps (104 limbs)
