  • AR-15 Competition Trigger

Self-contained module is ready to install in your small-pin AR and deliver an exceptionally smooth, crisp, creep-free single-stage trigger pull that feels more like a traditional bolt action than a combat rifle trigger. 100% drop-in—no gunsmithing, fitting, or adjusting required. All components are captive in the lightweight, aluminum alloy housing. Hammer is wire-EDM machined from S7 tool steel that combines hardness to resist wear with superior impact resistance to withstand heavy use without chipping or breaking. Other components are EDM cut from A2 tool steel, then heat treated to Rc 56-60 for long service life. Precision-ground engagement surfaces ensure superb reliability and a crisp, clean hammer release. Installs using your rifle’s original hammer/trigger pins; proprietary design eliminates pin walkout. Available with standard solid trigger shoe with choice of 3 lb, 4 lb. or 4.5 lb. pull weight.

Since it was founded in 1946, Timney Triggers has built a reputation based on the quality of its products. Because of the precision machining and workmanship that goes into each Timney product they are The World's Finest Triggers.™ Each and every Timney Trigger is individually tested and calibrated by hand in the action it was designed for before it's delivered to the customer's door. 


What Is Trigger Pull weight?

Pull weight is the amount of force, in ounces or pounds, required to fire the trigger. Or in other words, how hard you have to squeeze the trigger to shoot your rifle. Timney Trigger experts at our Phoenix, Arizona plant hand-test every trigger in its intended action and then set the pull weight at our factory standard, 3 lbs.

If you prefer a different pull weight you simply select it from the drop down above and your Timney Trigger will be customized to your preference.
The #1 reason to replace your factory trigger with a Timney is accuracy. A lighter, crisper, more consistent trigger pull will make you more accurate with your firearm.

Below is a guide for pull weight selection:

2-2.5 pounds
Light trigger pull weights are great for people shooting lighter weight rifles as they can help keep you on target during the shot. Also common weights for target shooting from a bench.

3-3.5 pounds
By far the most common trigger pull weights -this is great for virtually all applications including target shooting, hunting and 3-gun competitions.

4.0 pounds+
Heavy trigger pull weights are good for cold weather hunting or applications where you may be shooting with gloves on.


Timney AR-15 Triggers are designed to fit all mil-spec AR-15/ M4 platforms, including the large pin Colt Rifles made in the 90’s

    AR- 15 trigger

    Posted by pete santoro on Jul 9th 2019

    Got the trigger today and had it installed in my AR in 30 minutes. Easy to install and the 3lb pull is sooooo nice compared to the 7-8 lb pull on the stock trigger. If Timney triggers were less expensive I'd buy them for all my guns. well worth the money .

    Received my trigger in a couple days, dropped in and I was off and shooting. Absolute upgrade from my mil-spec trigger. Would absolutely recommend. Even dropped in a lollipop that my daughter enjoyed! Great company!

    AR-15 Competition Trigger Review

    Posted by James from Round Rock, TX on Jul 16th 2018

    The installation is more complicated than how it is depicted in the short video. Maybe some more detail on moving the springs out of the way to get the set screws in. Once I got it in I was extremely pleased with the performance. I am driving nails with my A/R at 100 yards now. Thanks Timney for turning a gun that I like into one I really love.

    Best Trigger Ever

    Posted by Eric from Aurora, CO on Jul 16th 2018

    Just installed my AR-15 Competition Trigger. I’m blown away the quality! No takeup, consistent pull, crisp break, short tactile reset, made in the U.S.A.. Couldn’t ask for anything more! And I love the Bible quote!!!! God bless all of you!

    Won me over for life

    Posted by   sean huzell from south florida on Jul 13th 2018

    Bought the curved trigger to go into my Stag arms build and fell in love at first pull. Not only did I giggle with joy as i opened this product, but i was completely blown away by the quality of this trigger. Super easy to install, took me less than 15 minutes and I was ready to go to the range. Timney triggers are now my #1 go to when looking for triggers on my platforms. Lollipop sealed the deal!
