Don't overlook Rifle Basix. I have a Savage non-accutrigger one, which is probably exactly what you need for your Stevens. Fully adjustable, it ended up being the nicest trigger I own. It looks simple, but it WORKS.

Very nice triggers and wider trigger shoe then the Timney. Unfortunately they cost as much as a Timney now too.

Re: Timney triggers

I don't have a rifle right now with a Timney on it, but I can speak from first hand knowledge and experience. Timneys are good triggers. I have had numerous Savages over the years and they all got Timneys. I was putting Timneys on my rifles before Rifle Basix and SharpShooterSupplies were a glitch on the radar screen.
I have two Savages now. One is Pre-AccuTrigger and wears a Rifle Basix, the other has an AccuTrigger. Both are set between 1.5-2lbs and I can't tell the difference, as far as how they break. The RB was on sale at the time.
I have a Shilen on my Remington 700P and it is a nice trigger. Initially I didn't like it based on the feel. The shoe is narrow, a lot narrower than a stock Remy. After a few rounds with that thing breaking like glass, didn't matter what it felt like!
Never had a SSS, so based on my experience I would rate the Timney right there with the RB, but below the Shilen. They are definately a lot better than the PRE-Accutrigger Savages. Easy to install and set-up and worth the time, effort and money. JohnnyK.
