Description  more details

Self-contained module is ready to install in your small-pin AR and deliver an exceptionally smooth, crisp, creep-free single-stage trigger pull that feels more like a traditional bolt action than a combat rifle trigger. 100% drop-in—no gunsmithing, fitting, or adjusting required. All components are captive in the lightweight, aluminum alloy housing. Hammer is wire-EDM machined from S7 tool steel that combines hardness to resist wear with superior impact resistance to withstand heavy use without chipping or breaking. Other components are EDM cut from A2 tool steel, then heat treated to Rc 56-60 for long service life. Precision-ground engagement surfaces ensure superb reliability and a crisp, clean hammer release. Installs using your rifle’s original hammer/trigger pins; proprietary design eliminates pin walkout. Available with standard solid trigger shoe with choice of 3 lb, 4 lb. or 4.5 lb. pull weight.

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.

When installing your Timney Calvin Elite AR-15 trigger be sure to tighten down the set screws once the pins and safety are in place. No torque wrench is necessary, hand tightening should be sufficient.

AR rifle double fires:

AR doubling can be caused by several factors including incorrect installation procedure, disconnect distance being incorrect, or user error. If the trigger is installed correctly and the distance is correct the issue can be the response to recoil of the shooter. This is frequently an issue with prone shooting since it is more difficult to get a good tight shoulder weld on the stock due to the angle.

Timney’s AR line of triggers feature a very short reset. That short reset is critically important for fast follow up shots. A shooter can essentially relax a finger and the springs will guide the hammer to reset the trigger for the next shot. While this feature is a premier function of the AR trigger it is also a contributing factor in double fires if the shoulder is not snug to the stock during shooting.

The recoil pushes the stock into the shoulder, the shooter stays in the trigger squeeze through the shot, following through to the end of the range of motion. If the shoulder is not square and or snug so the recoil is properly absorbed by the body, the rifle will recoil forward from the shoulder and because the reset is so short the rifle will fire a second time. This is commonly referred to as a bump fire or bounce fire.

To prevent double firing be sure to keep the shoulder snug to the stock through the shot. If the rifle recoil causes it to bump off of the shoulder relax your finger so that you don’t inadvertently squeeze off a second shot.

Practice squeezing slowly and deliberately through the shot, squeeze the trigger until the range of motion has stopped. Once it is complete slowly relax the finger, listen and feel for the triggers reset. You will not need to pull the finger off the trigger but rather relax into the reset of the trigger. Once you have found the reset be sure to feel for it when shooting from other shooting positions, especially prone or from a bench/shooting stand.

AR-15 Competition Trigger Review
The installation is more complicated than how it is depicted in the short video.  Maybe some more detail on moving the springs out of the way to get the set screws in.  Once I got it in I was extremely pleased with the performance.  I am driving nails with my A/R at 100 yards now.  Thanks Timney for turning a gun that I like into one I really love.

Best Trigger Ever
Just installed my AR-15 Competition Trigger.  I’m blown away the quality!  No takeup, consistent pull, crisp break, short tactile reset, made in the U.S.A..  Couldn’t ask for anything more!  And I love the Bible quote!!!!  God bless all of you!

Amazing trigger
I researched online for a few days looking at different triggers and talked to people who had used different ones. Wanted a true single stage light pull. Was told I couldn't go wrong with this one. And they were right. Install was fairly simple, aside from the springs being in the way of the locking set screws. A little cussing later....done. 3lbs is light and smooth. Break is crisp and reset fast and smooth. Will put this in all AR builds from here on.

I knew the factory trigger in my inexpensive AR wasn't great, but didn't know how much of an improvement a Timney trigger would be.  I wish I had purchased prior to a recent skills test I participated in.  I'm  loving the crispness and zero creep.  Now what else do I have that I can add a Timney trigger to?  Time to browse the website.

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.
