Re: Timney trigger - backed OA adjustment out too far
Thanks, I didn't clarify. I have a Rem 700 model with Outside Adjustment (OA) and backed this screw out too far in an attempt to lighten the pull. I discovered there is a small ball that sits between the spring and the adjustment screw with the detent. The adjustment screw is at a 90 deg angle to the spring. When I backed this out the small ball fell out of place and fell into the trigger. A piece of tape was put over the hole with the spring to prevent losing this and I was taking it to the gunsmith for repair. When he took the tape off, the ball was stuck to the tape....lucky. The smith was nice enough to put this back together for me and set the trigger to a crisp 2 lb...free of charge.
By the way, I talked with Timney on this and the tech rep's opinion is that he would not have a trigger with the Outside Ajustment feature for this reason and feels it unnecessary. Although, they offer it for people who still want it.
Thanks for the reply!
