PROUDLY MADE IN THE USA
This self-contained, 100% drop-in unit is ready to install in your Winchester Model 70 rifle with the MOA trigger. The trigger features an exceptionally smooth, crisp, single-stage trigger pull and requires no gunsmithing or fitting. Just like all Timney bolt action rifle triggers the new Winchester MOA replacement is fully adjustable for Creep, follow through and pull weight.
The lightweight, 6061 T6 aluminum alloy housing is anodized for superior durability. The sear is Wire EDM machined billet steel and combines hardness to resist wear with superior impact resistance and is Teflon-nickel plated for greatly enhanced lubricity. Other components are EDM cut from billet steel, then heat treated to R/C 56-60 for a long service life.
Purchased this trigger from Midway a few days ago and installed it in about 15 minutes. Found out later that Eabco.com would have saved me a few dollars had I found them first. Great Timney trigger. The MOA trigger would not adjust, only got worse when I tried to adjust it, and Winchester would not help me out. Pretty unhappy about that. Erniethegunsmith.com has light pressure springs for this trigger. I will be sending the MOA to him for repair.
Dropped into old trigger position nice and tight fit. Both pins required a couple of taps with a small hammer to reseat the old pins but otherwise ok. Be aware of the small factory transit pin installed to hold the rear of the sia until you reinsert your guns old pin because if this prematurely pops out the sia Spring could fly out and be lost. Otherwise beautifully made and better matches my rifle than the factory original trigger as well as performs flawlessly. I'm now a fan.
I just put this trigger in my Mod 70 Sporter in 338 Win Mag. It is SWEET! Way better than the "MOA" trigger from Winchester. It took me longer to find a roll pin punch than it did to install the trigger. As soon as the wind dies down I'm going to shoot it and see if the groups tighten up. I have a feeling this trigger is going to cost me....Now I'm going to want to replace several triggers!!
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:
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.
By far the most common trigger pull weights -this is great for virtually all applications including target shooting, hunting and 3-gun competitions.
Heavy trigger pull weights are good for cold weather hunting or applications where you may be shooting with gloves on.
