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.

Re: Top accuracy improvement choices for a colt light rifle?

I am the happy owner of a CLR in .270 as well as the gents above. I have had similar results with 130 grain bullets, Sierra and Hornady, and H-4831 and RL22. If I do my part 1 inch or less groups are not too difficult to shoot. I put a Harris bi-pod on it when hunting and there are a number of deer and antelope that would testify to the fact that the rifle is more than accurate enough. The only gripe I had was that the rifle weighed 8 ounces more than advertised. I like the rifle. It's a keeper.
