Description  more details

The Timney 2-Stage trigger is the latest model in that series. The pull weight is factory calibrated for a 1lb first stage and 1 lb second stage (the second stage is adjustable from 1 to 4-pounds of pull weight).

The 2-Stage trigger features machined and hardened steel work surfaces milled from A2 tool steel and all three sears are Teflon-nickel coated for added lubricity. The trigger housing and shoe are CNC machined using state-of-the-art robotics and the sears are EDM cut from high-grade solid steel. The trigger housing utilizes an anodized aluminum body and the trigger shoe and safety are carbon nitrided which dramatically increases the surface hardness and wear-resistance properties of the metal.

The Timney 2 Stage Straight Trigger is easily installed with no screws, drilling, or tapping required. By simply removing existing pins, replacing trigger, and inserting existing pins anyone can replace a trigger on their Remington 700.

Since it was founded in 1946, Timney Triggers has built a reputation based on the quality of its products. Because of the precision machining and workmanship that goes into each Timney product they are The World's Finest Triggers.™ Each and every Timney Trigger is individually tested and calibrated by hand in the action it was designed for before it's delivered to the customer's door. 

Remington 533 2 Stage Adjustment Guide

Remington 533 2 stage Adjustment
  1. Sear Engagement - Defined as the movement prior to the trigger breaking.
    • Cock the rifle.
    • Engage the safety.
    • Using a .050 Hex Wrench, turn screw #1 clockwise until it stops.
    • Turn screw # 1 counter clockwise 1 flat of the wrench and then lock down the nut. Be sure to keep the wrench in the screw while locking down the nut or it will move. Check the trigger to make sure it doesn’t move while the safety is engaged but the safety should be easy to actuate back and forth.
  2. Over Travel (Follow Through) – the movement after the trigger fires.
    • With the trigger in the fired position use a 5/64 hex wrench to turn the over travel screw #2 clockwise until it stops.
    • Turn the overtravel screw counter clockwise 1 flat of the wrench or 1/16 of a turn.
  3. Pull Weight Adjustment (1st Stage) – weight of the first stage.
    • Using a 5/64 hex wrench turn the #3 screw clockwise for increased pull weight and counter clockwise to reduce pull weight.
    • First stage pull weight is set at 1 lbs. from the factory but can be adjusted down to 8 oz. or half a pound.
  4. Pull Weight Adjustment (2nd Stage) – Weight of the second stage.
    • Pull weight is set in the factory at 1.5lbs. (This the lowest possible pull weight, it can be adjusted up to 4lbs)
    • Pull weight is adjusted using a 5/64 hex wrench to turn Screw # 4 clockwise into the housing. This will adjust the pull weight up from the factory set 1.5lbs.
    • To adjust the pull weight back down to 1.5 lbs. turn the screw counter clockwise.

Should have done it sooner
My remington CDL 700 was subject to the recall trigger problem. Rather than send it off I opted to order a Timney and replace it myself and at the same time replace the bottom metal with a Pacific tool and gage stainless oberndorf.  This trigger was installed with the new bottom metal onto my H-S precision stock.  I had to cut off the straight trigger a bit to fit in the trigger loop, and i had to dremel a small radius in the bottom metal for the safety area to clear, but this is to be expected with custom stock, bottom metal and the straight trigger.  The two stage operation is really nice, this trigger surpassed my expectations as did customer service when i called to ask questions.  Going from the stock brick wall remington trigger to this timney closed up a half inch off my groups at 100 yards. I will scrap and replace any remingtons trigger with this one from here on out. Worth every dollar paid.

Well worth it
This trigger is worth every penny.  The factory trigger in the Remington 700 Clark trigger claims it is adjustable but it won't go past 4.5 pounds (mine 4.5, 2 others I worked on would not go below 4.75 lbs and I have read this same thing dozens of times)   If you like shooting this triggers a must have.  It's smooth as butter and has a krisp break.  3-3.5 lb break is perfect for the normal user.  I personally like the addition of a second stage it allow you at add another step in the focus and self settling procces before you take the shot.

Compatibility Issues with Magpul Hunter 700
If you have opted in for Magpul's Hunter 700 stock and the MAG497 magazine well in lieu of the standard metal bottom.  The straight trigger is not compatible and will contact the bevel of the MAG497 trigger guard.  You will either need the curve trigger option or a non beveled trigger guard to make this fit.  I have notified customer service and awaiting a response for return, exchange or alternative solution.

What Is Trigger Pull weight?

Pull weight is the amount of pressure, in ounces or pounds, required to fire the trigger. Or in other words, how hard you have to squeeze the trigger to shoot your rifle. Timney Trigger experts at our Phoenix, Arizona plant hand-test every trigger in its intended action and then set the pull weight at our factory standard, 3 lbs.

If you prefer a different pull weight you simply select it from the drop down above and your Timney Trigger will be customized to your preference.

The #1 reason to replace your factory trigger with a Timney is accuracy. A lighter, crisper, more consistent trigger pull will make you more accurate with your firearm.

Below is a guide for pull weight selection:

2-2.5 pounds

Light trigger pull weights are great for people shooting lighter weight rifles as they can help keep you on target during the shot. Also common weights for target shooting from a bench.

3-3.5 pounds

By far the most common trigger pull weights -this is great for virtually all applications including target shooting, hunting and 3-gun competitions.

4.0 pounds+

Heavy trigger pull weights are good for cold weather hunting or applications where you may be shooting with gloves on.
