Description  more details

The Timney Calvin Elite Series Triggers now feature Carbo Nitride Coating, which allows Timney 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 Timney understands the importance of, “Every shot counts.”

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. Standard on all Timney Triggers, sear engagement, pull weight, and overtravel are fully adjustable to allow the shooter to customize trigger feel and function.

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.

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 700 Adjustment Guide

Remington 700 Adjustment Guide

1. Sear Engagement
Cock rifle.
Engage safety.
Turn screw clockwise until it stops (hits the safety)
Back off screw until safety plunger moves freely.
Test the safety to make sure it moves back and forth smoothly.
Re-engage the safety and make sure the trigger doesn’t have excessive movement with the safety in the safe position.

2. Overtravel After you adjust your sear engagement dry fire the rifle. Without cocking tighten the over travel screw in until it hits the trigger and then back it out about 1/6 of a turn or one flat of the hex wrench. It should move freely and fire easily but you shouldn’t have to “chase” the trigger more than about .015

3. Pull weight It’s important that you NOT take the pull weight too low; it must maintain spring pressure or will Bump / slam fire. When you pull the trigger, with the bolt open, the trigger’s spring should return it to the neutral position; if it doesn’t you don’t have enough spring pressure. To adjust spring pressure turn the screw in (Clockwise) until you can feel the pressure of the spring on the actual trigger lever. Close the bolt and dry fire the rifle. We recommend using a trigger pull gauge in the center of the trigger to measure the pull weight. If you don’t have one you need to get one, they aren’t very expensive, we sell them for around $35.00 It must be between 1.5 and 4lbs to function correctly. From there you take the screw in or out to measure the feel (weight) of the trigger.

Testing

Once you have it set where you like it rapid dry fire to ensure it functions perfectly. Test for slam fires by closing the bolt harder, don’t get insane but do shut it hard and with more force than normal. You are testing for accidental or unintentional discharge, if you were hunting and had to rapidly reload and do a second shot it shouldn’t discharge unintentionally.

When you reassemble, be sure to use a flashlight to look into the trigger well, the trigger should not rub or make contact with the trigger well or the trigger guard. It should, in theory, float through without contact, close is good, however rubbing is bad. With the rifle in the cocked position and the safety engaged drop the rifle 12 inches, but first, onto a padded floor to test for drop fire. It should not fire with the safety on and shouldn’t dent a primer either.

Excellent Left Handed Trigger
I installed this on my left handed  Remington 700 in .308 in a KRGm Bravo chassis.  I couldn't be happier with its performance.  Pull is clean and crisp.  It most definitely improved my group sizes!  My only suggestion for Timney is to write instructions for LEFT HANDED installations.  Everything is reversed and this caused me a bit of confusion until I figured out what was up.

Highly recommended, you won't be disappointed!

Awesome
I installed this trigger into my old Rem 700-ADL 30-06 (circa 1960).  The install was very easy however did require some inletting to crisp up the safety.  This was because I also added a new laminate stock.  Also,  I added a new scope and a Vias muzzle brake.  Just got back from the range and let me tell you this old gun has Never performed like this.  I can completely take out the bull's-eye from 100 yds.  I wanted to move out to about 300 yds but it started raining.  Long story short, get this trigger!  I ordered it with 1.5 lbs pull however my cheap pull gauge only gives it about 1 lbs.  No adjusting and its perfect.

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.
