Any reason to look at any other triggers besides a Timney for a mauser project in the planning stage? It would be going on a Brno small ring (21/22).

But Timney has smart people answering the phone, if you have problems..... no intelligent life on the phone at Midway

Bold is not made any longer, hence the discontinued notice on Midway's site.

Bold triggers are/were good. For whatever reason the company no longer exists.

Their standard trigger was ok, but the one with the side safety, never cared for it.

Unfortunately, the lack of options these days is something to consider when wanting to customize a Mauser.

I have had a Timney, (no safety), on my Higgins 50 for about 15 years, never an issue.

You are right,

I am just using up old parts at my house today.

Got a Dayton Traister that fit in there with lots less Dremel work and I'm real happy with that one also. IME they are both nice units, the Timney was on there since about 1995 until I did the stock switch 4 or 5 years ago. I don't even know what kind of market demand there is for Mauser triggers anymore. Wouldn't be shocked if some Mauser aftermarket triggers get discontinued. Anyone know if Dayton Traister still lists one for small ring Mausers?

quite a few models are listed. Just do a search for the name and you will find their website. $70-90 Actually here is the site. I have used quite a few Timneys in them and really like them. Have a Sako trigger in a Sako rebuild and it is a very nice trigger.

I've always wanted to try one of these. A bit pricey though.

In my experience, the Blackburn is an excellent trigger.

Personally, I like the 2 stage triggers. They seem like the inspiration for the Savage Accutrigger although I may be mistaken on that one.

I didn't care for the safety on mine either, so I took it out of housing. I put a Timney Beuhler style safety on it. Shame they stopped making the Bold triggers.

If he still makes them, The Alaska Arms trigger is just the best.

You would do well to have a side swing one installed, there is no comparison

All my customs are built on Mauser actions, some milsurp types and some commercial types. All but one have Timney triggers with which I have no complaints. The odd one out has a Dayton Traister. No complaints there as it's held steady at a hair under two pounds since the rifle was built. If I needed to replace a trigger I wouldn't hesitate to but another Timney.

What's wrong with modifying the original trigger?

Simple and less removal of stock wood.

Nothing, provided you know how. Anyone asking about replacement triggers, should be assumed to not know how. And, if that is the case, they are doing the right thing buying instead of modifying.
