Re: Timney Trigger Issues
I would stick with your model 70 safety and sell the Timney.
I have owned 20 or more model 70's and almost always can get them adjusted to around 2-1/2 to 3 lbs.
Any compentant gun smith can do the same.
I am a BIG fan of timney though, I must have installed or owned over 20 mauser, enfield or springfield rifles with them, and they are a good trigger.
