Purchased this trigger from Midway a few days ago and installed it in about 15 minutes. Found out later that 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. has light pressure springs for this trigger. I will be sending the MOA to him for repair.

Winchester Mod 70 Stealth 2 .308 (2011 made)
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.

Best Trigger ever
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!!

I purchased both the Timney #402-16 in a 1.5 lbs setup, and I purchased the Timney trigger pull scale.  The trigger system arrived as a single unit. Installing the Timney trigger took 20 minutes of my time. The instructions were clear and easy. Once installed, I used the Timney trigger pull scale: The trigger pull measured 1.75 lbs. So, the pull was .25 lbs heavier than what I ordered. However, the trigger pull was smooth, easy, and crisp. I own several Timney trigger systems, and I will certainly purchase more.

Love it - But
I bought this to replace the factory MOA trigger on a new Model 70 hunting rifle.  I love the Timney #510 trigger I put on my Remington 700 target rifle.  So I was pleased to find Timney also made a drop-in replacement for the Winchester Model 70 MOA trigger.  It was “truly” a drop-in replacement.  Just as it had been on my Remington.   Anyone with the proper pin punch tool can do it.  I have since adjusted the trigger pull to 2 ½ lbs. matching my Remington.
I love this trigger with just two caveats.  First, I wish they had used a curved instead of a straight trigger.  Something more like the one used on the #401 Model 70 replacement trigger.  I just like the feel of a curved trigger.  Second, even though the trigger pull is set to 2 ½ lbs. on both of my rifles.  The trigger pull on the Model 70 “feels” just a tad stiffer than the Remington.  I don’t know if this has anything to do with the strait vs. curved trigger thing.  But it just “feels” ever so much stiffer.  Good Job Timney.

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.
