For the discriminating shooter, demanding the utmost performance from their trigger, Timney has created a new line of triggers designed to be robust and yet delicate enough to be set with a pull weight as low as 8 ounces. An engineering accomplishment, the Calvin Elite series of Timney Triggers feature wear components that are made from A2 tool steel, heat-treated to Rockwell 58 and Teflon-nickel coatings. Sears are wire EDM cut and triggers are CNC machine using state-of-the-art robotics. The lightweight 6061-T6 aluminum housings are CNC machined and anodized Timney Elite Gold.

The Timney Calvin Elite Series Triggers  feature Carbo Nitride Coating, which allows us the opportunity to provide you with the highest quality trigger available anywhere.  The thermochemical process simultaneously diffuses nitrogen and carbon into the surface of ferrous metals. This coating is substantially harder than hardened tool steel and increases the long-term wear, provides exceptional corrosion resistance, far surpassing the military salt water corrosion standards and increases lubricity to your trigger. This provides your Timney with a lifetime of smooth edges because we understand the importance of, “Every shot counts.”

The Calvin Elite Series of triggers are named for Calvin Motley, Timney’s design genius, who is responsible for such award-winning triggers as the Timney AR drop-in trigger, Remington 700 with unique trigger blocking safety and loads of other critically acclaimed replacement triggers.

by Sam Wactor on 10/24/2016 Great trigger for the 700
My factory trigger was a piece of crap. My Rifle, a Remington 700 Sendero in 300 Win Mag, about 86 year model. The factory trigger was breaking at 6-6.5 lbs. I needed to drop down to a 2.5 lb trigger. I tried the adjustment procedure several times on the factory trigger with no reasonable success. After making numerous attempts, the trigger was not consistent. It would break at 1-3/4 to 3 lbs and was still sloppy. After installing the Timney Calvin Elite I was very impressed. The trigger came set at 8 oz from the factory and I tested it more than 20 times with the trigger breaking at 8 oz plus or minus 1 oz. I left it set it 8 oz until I make a range trip to see if 8 oz might be to light for me. The trigger is adjustable up to 2-1/2 lbs.

I got my Calvin Elite trigger in today and installed it in about 40 minutes. If the rear pin on my rifle that also retains the bolt stop and spring were not so loose that the spring slipped off before I could see exactly how it were installed it probably would have been a 15-20 minute job. After figuring that out and getting the trigger in place, I was surprised to see it was factory adjusted at 8 oz or just above, much better than my 45-46 year old factory trigger that was at about 4.5 lbs. Now to get it to the range.

Replaced my factory Remington 700 trigger due to the recall with the Calvin Elite. Wow! Thats all I can say. Set it at 1.5 and headed out to the range. I'm shooting a 300 WSM and wanted to take out all of the flinch. This trigger is so crisp and it breaks perfectly eliminating all flinch. My groups shrunk .5 moa. You won't be sorry. Buy the Calvin Elite.
