I have a pair of Mark II's, one in 243 and the other in 6mm I put Timney triggers in. I highly recommend them. I have both set for about 2-1/4lb pull with no creep.


Good Shooting,

George

X2

Turned an atrocious factory trigger into a glass rod at 2.5#. Highly recommend

I have one. It's a very nice trigger! Be advised that it isn't "drop-in," however. It requires some minor fitting, namely the little shelf that the safety engages needs to be filed a little for proper engagement of the rotating safety "pad."

Was getting ready to say the same.

All of the above for me too. Except, I sent my gun to Timmy & T-Bone fitted mine for me. It breaks like a glass rod for sure. Like SixPack said, highly recommend.

I’ve had a couple & was very happy with them. Easy to fit and great improvement in function.

Directions for the fitting that RifleDude refers to are included when you buy the trigger..


If we live long enough, we all have regrets...and the regrets that nag at us the most are the ones in which we know we had a choice.

I did a Moyer and a Timney, the Timney was almost a drop in the Moyer took some file work on the safety engagement head. Both good. A good gun smith can tune the factory trigger but I couldn't do a whole lot with it. I smoothed it up but when I put in a softer spring it was too light so I just swapped them out. If you have to file the safety engagement go real slow and leave room to polish it down with crocus cloth and then Flitz.

The Timney is a dandy, I have fitted and used a couple of them. I really prefer, however, the original after working it down to take out creep and lightening it. The drawback to the original is that there is no way to adjust overtravel, although this is a minor concern to me.

I totally agree.

I got the Timney put in, and it sure is a great trigger. I would say that it takes some careful work to File that little shelf where the safety is, results are well worth the effort.

One note on that - You file the “TRIGGER” not the safety block on the action safety block on the lever rod.... per the instructions.. this way if you put the old trigger back in, it’s safe.

I have one installed on my 260. The original was atrocious, felt like dragging a broken beer bottle across asphalt. Not conducive to accuracy. I will admit that i did a p*sspoor job of installation, with the above-mentiond filing. Saftey lever works properly, just isn't very smooth. Not sure where the pull weight is, as I don't have a scale....but it is light. Very light. I've never had it accidently discharge, and has always passed the "bump test". All my other boat paddle guns had decent triggers from the get go, but this rifle sure benefited from the Timney.

That reminds me, I think I have a spare Timney laying around somewhere that I bought off the campfire....
