Transforming the lowly Ruger American into a tack-driving silhouette superstar

I was able to rebuild a Ruger American compact in .22LR into a decent silhouette rifle with an upgrade to the Timney 1.5 lbs. trigger. I also sanded the barrel channel of the stock to make sure the barrel was floated. But the Timney trigger vastly improved the accuracy of that little rifle. Going from the factory 5 lbs. trigger with massive creep to a precision single stage with crisp break was a vast improvement.

Huge improvement!

I could not get the OEM trigger to have a consistent breaking poundage so I installed this on my brand new Ruger American rimfire Target. It literally cut my group size in half at 100 yd.

Ruger American Rimfire Trigger

Like all Timney triggers, the Timney trigger for the Ruger American Rimfire is an excellent trigger. My trigger came pre-set at 1 1/2 pounds and required no further adjustments. Installation was easy requiring the removal of two roll pins and uses the safety parts from the Ruger trigger. The Timney trigger for the Ruger American Rimfire rifle is a very worthwhile upgrade for an already excellent 22 rifle., You won't be disappointed with this trigger,

What Is Trigger Pull weight?

Pull weight is the amount of pressure, 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.

This trigger works with these rifles:

  • Ruger® American Rimfire Compact
  • Ruger® American Rimfire Standard
  • Ruger® American Rimfire Target
  • Ruger® American Rimfire Wood Stock
