We agree with Timney - "A fine rifle is only as good as its trigger". And as model 70 enthusiasts already know, the factory pre-64 model 70 trigger is truly an excellent trigger. A skilled gunsmith can tune the pull weight and travel with great precision - far better than most factory triggers.
There are cases, however, when it makes sense to upgrade from the factory trigger: If you are looking for a pull weight under 2 lbs, or if you need the ability to make easy/frequent adjustments to your trigger, then upgrading from the factory trigger is highly recommended. This is especially true if you like to operate with a very light pull weight, as the factory trigger is prone to slam-firing at light pull weights.
The Timney Model 401 Featherweight Trigger is made in America. It is precision machined and hand-fitted to provide a crisp trigger pull. It features a lightweight alloy housing with machined and hardened steel working surfaces. The trigger is fully adjustable. The pull weight is easily adjusted from 1 lb to 4.5 lbs, and is also adjustable for creep and overtravel. The trigger is simple to install and requires no modification to any part of the action.
If you are ordering this trigger for a pre64win.com action or rifle build, we will be happy to install the trigger and set the pull weight to your specifications at no added charge.
