Remingtons new adjustable trigger vs a timney trigger.

Just bought a remington 700 with remingtons adjustable trigger. Is there a big difference between this and the timney trigger. How hard would it be to replace this with a timney trigger? The remington trigger dosent feel consistent to me.

It sucks, it sucks, and it also really sucks. This is the third generation of the pro mark 10. I am assuming you are talking about the one with the little Allen screw in the heel of the trigger. As far as the timmney, they are awesome. I don't know your abilities, but they are not difficult to replace or install. If you have ANY doubt, have a smith do it. Timmny is anise trigger, jewel triggers are THEE best. ANY of those two are better than the one you have . Swap out that trigger, you won't be sorry. AIM SMALL, MISS SMALL. 7STW

Re: Remingtons new adjustable trigger vs a timney trigger.

The new Remington triggers are a improvement over the last ones but not as good as the old
40 X triggers of old. But they are still factory triggers and are not as crisp as most after market
triggers.

I have had good luck with them after honing the sear surfaces, but if you don't know the proper
angles you can destroy them.

They will adjust down to less than 2 pounds but I would recomend 2.5 lbs for safety with the
Remington. but with the Jewell and Timney weight is not an issue.

For the money, Rifle Basix triggers are no slouch.
