trigger replacement

Have win mod 70 that has a terrible trigger. Now I have been quoted anywhere fro 70$ to 170 to fine tune this beast. At that price I'm thinking just replace it completely. So question is Timney for about 120+ or Rifle basix for 160. What would you suggest? Other brands or suggestions most welcome. The basics looks pretty simple and so does the Timney. Looks like Timney replaces the whole trigger assembly and basix replaces just the trigger itself. Suggestions welcome.

Some triggers lend themselves to tuning and some are better replaced. In my opinion this is one of them.

If you want a good trigger the Timney is a good start. The very best trigger that I have used/installed
is the Jewel. It is around $200.00 but is worth every penny.

The problem with them is , once you have one you wont like any other brand.

If it was a Remington I could recommend several other brands, But for the Mod 70 It would be my first choice by a large margin.

PS: most after market triggers need require some stock inletting. they may say it is drop in, but don't believe it until you check it. There is not much to remove and It is easy to do. Just be aware
of the fit in the stock.

Re: trigger replacement

I put a Timney on a M70 as a DIY job and it dropped right in. It was a HUGE improvement over the stock trigger.

Since then, I had a custom built using a Jewell. I can confidently second JE Custom's opinion. It is awesome. Not sure if it would be a DIY job on an M70...
