    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,

    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.

    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.
