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.


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.

Just installed the Timney 512 with a 1.5# pull on my Remington 700 SPS 16.5". I was expecting a decent amount of improvement over the factory trigger, but this is unbelievable. No creep, no crazy over travel, just a smooth, crisp break! Now I've got to order one for my Winchester model 70 Stealth!

Perfect Replacement for Recall on Remington 700 Trigger!
After discovering that the trigger on my Remington 700 was on recall I opted to replace it with the "AMERICAN MADE" Timney #512. Remington wanted me to strip my scope, mounts and waste time looking for a delivery method to get my rifle back to them for the recall. And they had zero answers for the turn around time. I decided to order my first Timney. The installation was a breeze (although I did have to remove the bolt stop and spring first to get to the front pin on my rifle).
No enlarging of the stock or trigger guard was necessary to accommodate the wider Timney trigger.  
The Timney is incredibly clean and crisp on the break. I absolutely love the wider trigger as well. Can't wait to get over to the range to check out the groups, they will certainly be improved.
I am planning to purchase another Timney for my son's Remington 700 because he loves the feel of mine so much.
This is an outstanding product. I highly recommend replacing your recall Remington 700 trigger with the Timney.

Problem solved.
Working up loads for a Remington 243, regular barrel.  Initially, a 58 gr. Hornady, and a Barnes 85 gr.  Copper Bullet.  both bullets seemed to shot well out of my rifle.  Recently, worked on a 65 grain load, and it seemed erratic.  Removed the scope, installed a different scope, with a torque wrench, after polishing the rings-leupold.  Bullets seemed to group, about 1/2 and inch, with a flyer opening to 1.1 inches.  Not good enough.  Ordered the Timney trigger, knowing that there may be some work on the trigger housing, as the trigger is wider.  Trigger went in, no problem.  New trigger is crisp, no more wrestling with the trigger.  Yesterday, went out and sighted in to 500 yards, with two shots hitting a couple of inches above the center.  100 to 300 spot on, still working on the 400 to 500 yards, as wind was 10-15 mph.  Looking at Timney for my other rifles.  Great purchase.

Made a good gun a great gun.
I purchased my remington 700, 7mm magnum with a standard trigger with the intention of installing a timney 510. This trigger is better than I was hoping for, it is crisp with no creep at all. I purchased a kit for my remington 7400 as well when I saw what a difference a good trigger could do for accuracy and it is amazing also. Now I'm saving up for one for my DPMS AR15.

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.
