A factory M70 trigger is probably the easiest factory trigger to adjust and improve.
Also, the after market replacements are usually far less expensive than those made for the 700.

I have a Timmny set at right around 1.5 lbs and LOVE IT...especially for a sliver over $100.

Re: Model 70 rifle build

Been quoted $70 to 170 to fix my trigger on my M70 by same Smith on to diff conversations. So not trusting this guy very far can't even give me same quote. That's why I figured just replace it be done with it.

Re: Model 70 rifle build

I'm am excited! First build and all. Pictures will come when it's back home. I'm still waiting on the brake to come in the mail. So much for paying for expidited shipping I guess. I did the trigger on my 308 pictured above. I don't have a trigger pull gauge, but it's a touch lighter than a friend's gun which I know is 3lbs done by a smith. No creep, and smooth. Nice in my rather novice opinion.

Re: Model 70 rifle build

I see there ID a sticky on putting pics on LRH directly from owned computer instead of photobucket etc.. not sure if that helps I don't have any pics. Photo bucket looks like a pain.
