Why settle for a sloppy trigger which can cause a good rifle to shoot badly?
Now shooters can replace creepy two-stage triggers with one that is smooth and breaks crisp. The trigger is factory preset with a pull weight of either 3 or 4 pounds. Installation is quick and no adjustments are necessary, 100% true drop-in trigger. The trigger module installs using your rifle's original hammer/trigger pins and the proprietary design eliminates pin rotation and walkout. Since it was founded in 1946, Timney Manufacturing has built a reputation based on the quality of its products. Because of the precision machining and workmanship that goes into each and every Timney product they are often referred to as "The World's Finest Triggers" and they are used exclusively by some of the world's best custom gun manufactures. Made in the USA.

Of course ANY after-market trigger would have to be an improvement over the one from the factory, which feels like dragging a cinder block through gravel. But the Timney seems to me to be the perfect trigger for my rifle. I'm not a competition bench rest shooter. I intend to hunt East Texas hogs and deer with this rifle, but still I'm a stickler for accuracy and a good trigger makes a BIG difference from the bench or the blind.
Some other reviews I read concerning the creep in the trigger made me hesitant to buy it, but the cost, the design, and the name over-rode my concerns. I am not at all disappointed. Although the trigger does have a small amount of creep, it is detectable only when dry-firing and paying very close attention. On sand bags, it's one of the best triggers I've had the opportunity to squeeze. I'm shooting sub-half inch groups at 100 yd... that says a lot about the complete rig, including the trigger. By the way, it's gotten smoother and crisper after breaking it in a little. It just "feels right" to me.
Maybe some of the other shooters who gave it lower ratings got "lemons" or maybe their standards are much higher than mine, but I'm EXTREMELY pleased with my trigger, and would recommend it in a second to any potential buyer.
The sear engagement caused a lot of travel. I could easily pull it 1/2 way and stop.. then the rest of the way later to fire. It's not "crisp" by a long shot (pun intentional).. It's a" Lawyer trigger"
I was very disappointed. I expected a "Crisp" trigger. That is the most important to me.
You really should NOT be able to move the trigger at ALL with out it going off. Or be able to tell WHEN it's going to "break." PERIOD
The disconnector engagement was set to much also.. At least you can adjust that for faster follow up shots.
I tried using the larger set screw to see if that helped, but I did not see any improvement..
It should have instructions that tell you what each set screw does. The sear engagement should be adjustable. I can't believe I had to take a stone to a $200 match trigger .. Grrrr
That was the whole point of getting a drop in trigger in the first place was so I would not have to do that. As it is I still have a less than stellar trigger.
I had tried to wear it in by working the trigger at night I am at over 1000 cycles and still had the creep only smoother..
I finally broke down and took a stone to it. I reduced the amount of the height of the engagement cut in the hammer, just a tiny bit. It will still creep but less. It's better but still is not what I would call a good target trigger. I should probably stone it some more but I don't want to over do it.
I guess I got one of the 2 lemons... Mary got the other one ;)
I guess I was just unlucky since others did not have the same experience .. except Mary.
It did not meet my expectations.
