    Which is the better. A single or double set trigger. Apart from using them. Which gives the least trouble.

    There is more complication in the two of them to go wrong compared to a standard trigger. But I have yet to have problems with either on my rifles. I would say possibly the double set trigger would be least troublesome as you still have your standard trigger which can be operated in the event of an issue with the second trigger. The single set trigger relying on the one trigger for both operations.
    Thats my experience of them others may differ though.

    My old Krico .22wmr has a double set trigger, and I've never liked it.

    For hunting (the only thing I use it for), the pull is far too light when set, so I never use it. With the two triggers your finger has to reach further forward to pull the trigger, which is less comfortable, and there's less space inside the trigger guard (couldn't use gloves, for eg).

    I'll swap it out for a single non-set trigger if I ever find an old spare one that'll fit.

    I have a set trigger on my Sako 308, I wouldn't be without it. I use it for target shooting all the time. but not when out hunting deer.

    Never seen a set trigger on a Sako. Am I right in thinking you push the trigger blade forward to set it?

    Like Clivej,
    i have a single set trigger on a Steyr .300, again i use it for target shooting but not for hunting. Never any trouble and i would not be without it.

    Neither is anything like a necessity but I love a double set trigger and two of my rifles have them - not a fan of any of the single sets I've had the chance to use.

    ... set trigger .... Am I right in thinking you push the trigger blade forward to set it?

    yup, that's how any of the single sets I've used worked.

    Yes thats how it works.
    I also have the set trigger on my CZ 223 varmint.

    Neither will give more or less trouble over the other, they are very simple in design. It's just down to personal preference. Personally I prefer a single set trigger. You can see here how simplistic they are in design they're basically 5 parts, your sear, sear arm, trigger, a spring that sits on the front of the sear arm, and a small spring under the rear of the sear. :pac:
