Savage Edge Adjustment Instructions

Savage Edge Adjustment Instructions

1. Sear Engagement- With the rifle unloaded but cocked and the safety disengaged, turn the sear adjustment screw slowly clockwise until the rifle fires. Once it fires turn it slowly counter clockwise about 1/6 of a turn. Use the lock nut to snug the position when the sear is set to your desired level of engagement. When you lock the nut be sure to keep the 5/64 hex wrench in the screw so it does not move. The closer the sear and trigger get to the edge the less sear engagement you have and the less creep you feel in the trigger. It is important to make this adjustment very slowly.

2. Safety adjustment – With the rifle in the cocked position, and while pressing the trigger forward so that it cannot fire; turn the safety adjustment screw clockwise using the 5/64 hex wrench until it stops. Once it bottoms out you will turn it slowly counter clockwise until the safety moves but the rifle will not fire on safe.

3. Pull weight – Pull weight is controlled by the screw pressing against a pull weight spring. The pull weight spring in turn presses against the bottom of the receiver. If you turn the screw clockwise the amount of spring pressure increases and so does the pull weight. If you turn the screw counter clockwise the pull weight drops lower. It is important that the pull weight is not adjusted below 1.5 lbs. or slam fires can occur.

Clean and Crisp
I bought a slightly used Savage Axis that had this Timney trigger already installed.  I wanted a great shooter with one caveat, and that was that it be chambered in Savage 250-3000.  I put an ER Shaw barrel on it, and a Boyds stock and it is everything I hoped for.  It is hard to quantify why the trigger feels so just right.  It breaks cleanly and crisply and it gives me the confidence to shoot better.  With it's light recoil and noted accuracy, the 250 Savage with this trigger makes a sweet target rifle.  Both my daughter and my granddaughter want one just like it.

Fantastic Trigger
Purchased this for my wife's Savage Axis (pre-accutrigger) and found it to be an excellent upgrade.  No creep, no overtravel, breaks so cleanly.

Wow better than I could hope for
I installed this in a Axis 30-06 and run 130 Grain Barnes tip triple shocks.  Which I reload myself.  The group size went down more than I could hope for.  I am able to shoot 1.25 inch 3 shot groups at 200 yards. I tell everyone I see that has a Axis to pick up this trigger.  I found it easy to install and adjust.  This is the first time I have ever changed the triggers on my own.  I have taken in other guns to local gun smith to make the changes.  With this product you can do it yourself.

What a difference this trigger made. If there is one upgrade that you do to axis then this is it.  A huge improvement over the stock trigger. The stock trigger would break somewhere between 5.5 and 6.5 lbs and felt rough. The timney breaks at 3 lbs every time. It really tightened my groupings up.

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.
