The Timney 2-Stage trigger is the latest model in that series. The pull weight is 1 lb on the first stage and from 1 to 3 lbs of pull weight on the second stage.
The 2-Stage trigger features machined and hardened steel work surfaces milled from A2 tool steel and all three sears are Teflon-nickel coated for added lubricity.

The trigger housing utilizes an anodized aluminum body and the trigger shoe and safety are carbon nitrided which dramatically increases the surface hardness and wear-resistance properties of the metal.
