Adjustment of the pull weight is completed by turning the pull weight screw with a 5/64 hex Wrench. Adjustment of the sear engagement and overtravel are completed using a .050 hex Wrench. 

Sear Engagement:
Sear engagement controls the amount of movement the trigger has before it breaks. Sear engagement is custom set at the Timney Factory and shouldn't need adjustment. However, if you want to adjust your triggers sear engagement (Creep) the procedure is as follows: 

With the rifle unloaded and cocked. Engage the safety. turn the sear engagement screw clockwise until it stops. Slowly turn it counter clockwise 1/8 of a turn or one flat of the .050 hex wrench. The safety should move freely but the trigger should not move when the safety is engaged.

Overtravel (Follow Through) is the distance the trigger moves after it fires. Timney Trigger Jedi's adjust the overtravel to factory specifications but overtravel is a matter of preference and can be increased or decreased to match your preference. The over travel screw is on the front of the housing just above the pull weight screw. With the trigger in the fired position and using a .050 hex wrench, turn the screw clockwise until it stops. Once the screw stops, turn the screw counter clockwise 1/8 of a turn or one flat of the hex wrench. Squeeze the trigger as you turn the screw to the desired amount of follow through. BE CAREFUL if the overtravel is set too tight the trigger will not fire.

Pull Weight: 
Pull weight is controlled by the bottom screw on the front of the housing. Using a 5/64 hex wrench turn the screw clockwise to increase the pull weight or counter clockwise to decrease the pull weight. From the factory the pull weight is set at 3lbs.

Nice Trigger
  I used this trigger as a replacement for my Hells Canyon X Bolt. the factory trigger would only adjust down to 3.5 lbs. I ordered the 2 lb. trigger and it makes a big difference. My groups are consistently smaller with the new trigger.
   The installation was easy, but I did have to use a Dremmel tool with a small sanding drum for clearance of the safety pivot and rod.  It only took an extra 10 or 15 minutes for a proper fit. 
   I will be replacing some of my other triggers with Timney products.

As usual.
Set to 1.5 lbs, and never look back. Once again, Timney
delivers.  Little bit of fitting on the right side below the 
Safety bar in the stock.

Just what this gun needed
I bought my X Bolt Hells Canyon Long Range 6.5 Creedmoor gun last September.  Great gun but was limited by the Godzilla trigger pull.  Browning said Feather Weight adjustable.  Hate to see what kind of bird has those feathers!  I set the trigger as low as possible and at best was 3.1 lbs pull.  
Then just what I was looking for!  Bought the Timney trigger last two weeks ago.  Installed it in about 10 minutes, set the trigger to 1.5 lbs and took it to the 300 yard range.  Now I have a shooter.    Put a 2.5" group together with 10 shots first time out.  Before that it was 4 to 6 inch on a good day.  
Great job Timney!!!! Can you make the trigger gold plated?

X-Bolt trigger
I’ve owned my Browning X-Bolt for several years and was fed up with the trigger pull. 
Replaced it with a Timney trigger set @ 1.25 lbs. crisp clean pull. Changed gun from mediocre to a shooter. Couldn’t be happier.

Browning X-Bolt Replacement
Finally, after years of waiting, Timney produces a replacement trigger for the Browning X-Bolt and it is exactly what I've been hoping for; two pins and a connecting link switch and its done.  I did adjust the trigger down to two pounds and that was also extremely easy.  However, I had to remove a slight bit of stock material for the connecting bar to clear the stock after installation of the new trigger.  If you like the way the original trigger locks the bolt closed, this trigger isn't the one for you.  No installation instructions came with the trigger, but I was able to print them out from on-line and they proved helpful, though I likely could have managed without instructions; its that easy.

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.
