I had a timiny trigger installed in my .22 American and now the safty will barley slide...any info?
You say you "had it installed" so I'm assuming you didn't install it yourself?
I've put Timneys in a couple rifles and I found that sometimes the new trigger parts can rub on the stock creating an interference with the travel of the safety bar.
Either take it back to whoever installed it, or if I were you, I'd remove the barreled action from the stock and examine the clearance between the safety and the stock. Might need to relieve/file/grind on the stock to make clearance so the safety will operate smoothly.
Hope that helps.
Mine did the same on the safety lever there’s holes and what looks like a D tent ball locked into the hole for the on off safety position I know you’re not supposed to lube a trigger and I did flush it out later but I sprayed WD-40 in there and it worked fineI had a Timney trigger in a M700 do this same thing and it was not due to stock contact. The safety lever was very difficult to move, even when removed from the rifle.
Also, the trigger pull was supposed to be set at 2 lbs. It varied from 3.0-4.5 lbs.
I replaced it with a Trigger Tech and have been extremely happy.
