Sear Engagement (Creep):

Your sear engagement is located on the top of the trigger in front of the sear.

To Adjust:

Hold the trigger in your palm, Push down on the sear while using a .050 hex wrench to slowly turn this screw clockwise until the trigger trips or fires. It is important to maintain pressure on the sear during this step. Now turn it counter clockwise one flat of the wrench or 1/16 of a turn. This is approximately where the sear should be set. (This may need to be adjusted slightly)

Pull weight:

The Pull Weight Adjustment Screw Is Located In The Front Of The Trigger.

To Adjust:

To adjust your pull weight you will loosen the nut and using a 5/64 hex wrench, turn the screw clockwise to increase the pull weight; or counter clockwise to decrease your pull weight.

The pull weight adjustment works by the screw pressing against a coil spring which in turnpushes it against the trigger. As you turn it clockwise (pushing the screw further into the housing) the screw compresses the spring and the pull weight goes up. AS you back out thescrew (counter clockwise) the pull weight will decrease.

Note: You will want to move the adjustment screw in increments of about 1/8th of a turn at a time.

American vs German vs Japanese
I installed this trigger for a client.  His rifle is Japanese.  He bought the US model for his Japanese  M 5 but his rifle had metric screws.  If you end up having to make screws to attach a US trigger to a metric action here is what you need: 

Front screw: M4 x .7mm x 12mm socket head capscrew.  no modification.

Rear screw: 10-32 x 1/2" flat head allen screw. turn head down do .315" diameter.  take about .010" off the top of the head.  

Trigger was crisp and flawless after installation.

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.
