Winchester 70 "Classic Compact"
Trigger Win 70 #401 works great. Be advised that this trigger will not work with the Model 70 "classic compact" stock. 
Due to the smaller size of the stock the bottom of the trigger housing protrudes preventing reassembly of the trigger guard.

I just purchased this trigger last night and installed it right away. It took me less than 20 min. from start to finish. It doesn't get any easier. The new trigger feels and functions great! I plan on putting these on the rest of my rifles.

I got this trigger put in my 270 before I went to wyoming on a hunt. After shooting it for the first time I fall in love with it. It breaks like glass every time, every little travle if any. I have it set at three pounds. I like it so much that I'm getting one put in my 700. Can't say enough good things about it. Keep up the good work people at 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.
