Weatherby Mark V and Timney Trigger

I recently bought a Timney trigger for my Ultra lightweight and the safety will not rotate to safe. The safety works fine with the Weatherby tigger.

Anybody have similar problems?

Thanks,
Dale

    The Timneys are a little thicker and longer on the outside and the stock needs to be opened up
    in some areas of the inletting for clearance.

    The stock is most likely the problem.

    FYI,

    With a $6.95 spring from Ernie:

    Weatherby MK V Hunter Trigger Spring (current US mfg. rifles)

    and these instructions:

    Weatherby Rifles Forum - How to MOD your MK V Trigger.

    I've not had to swap Timneys into any of our Mark V's.
    Into the Vanguards, yes, but not the Mark V's.

    I put a timney on one of my MK V's a few years ago . if I remember right there were two different triggers listed . one for German built and one for Japan built . could this be your problem, the wrong trigger ? Jim

    I got the safety to work by removing a couple of thousanths of the rear of the sear, per Timney's instructions. I had the correct US trigger for the US made Mark V.

    Thanks for your responses. I will go the spring route with my other Mark V.
