There's a good possibility that it might and worth contacting them ... see article below, where it mentions the difference in trigger and reference Timney.

The Ultra-Light Melvin Rifle

Good luck!

Bummer! Just found out that Colt did not use the Timney trigger. Checkout Bounty Hunter's post ...

Send the rifle to Melvin Forbes at NULA for a new stock, trigger and other misc. parts that he deems necessary. You will then have a significantly better functioning rifle.
