Timney Triggers Invests in Cody Firearms Museum’s Future

We are pleased to announced that Timney Triggers has pledged $500,000 to the Cody Firearms Museum (CFM) renovation. The Buffalo Bill Center of the West recently announced its plan to fully renovate the Cody Firearms Museum, opening Summer 2019. Timney Triggers’ donation joins several federal grants and high-level individual donations to the project; however, they have led the charge in the firearms world as the first substantial industry gift.

“I am happy to make this gift,” said John Vehr, Owner of Timney Triggers. “Because our industry must support and appreciate the benefits derived from having the finest gun museum in the world educate 100,000s of thousands of people who visit AND are new to guns, on the historical importance and the positive aspects of our industry.”

The Cody Firearms Museum is excited to have Timney Triggers’ support of this project, especially with their rich history as one of the oldest and largest trigger manufacturers in the world. Timney Triggers has been making replacement triggers for over 70 years. Since 1946, Timney prides itself on the quality of precision machining and workmanship that goes into each and every Timney Trigger. Each trigger is proudly made in the USA and offers a lifetime warranty.

The CFM is planning a two-floor renovation that will cater to both firearms enthusiasts and the general public. This museum will boast over 4,500 firearms on display, multiple shooting simulators, and hands-on inter-active displays that will teach people not only how firearms changed throughout history but why it is significant to our cultural heritage.

Peter Kuyper, newly appointed CFM Advisory Board Chair, is “thrilled to be a part of such a terrific opportunity to educate the public about firearms history. No other firearms museum in the country is poised to tell this story in a way that will reach both the collector and the novice. I’m honored to become a part of the Cody Firearms Museum making its own history.”

Robert W. Woodruff Curator of the Cody Firearms Museum Ashley Hlebinsky is “ecstatic to have Timney Triggers in support of this project. When we set out to plan the new museum, we wanted to make sure that not only our historic roots were fostered in the new museum, but that we would acquire representation from newer companies or companies whose stories haven’t been told previously in museums, solidifying their place in history.”
