    Installed a Timey Trigger on a Mauser action. Got about 120 shots through it. Broke down the rifle today to clean, etc and the trigger lost a small pin. The housing where the pin was is deformed. Put the pin back in, no good - trigger will not reliably hold the firing pin back.

    Has anyone else seen this issue? Did I get a dud? Are there better replacement triggers out there?

    Thanks.

    They are pretty good triggers---sounds like a Blacksmith put the trigger in to me..

    On 5 different rifles I've had great results with timney triggers. I would definitely buy another for any rifle that needed trigger work....
