hi guys after making a new stock (and bedding it with match grade bedding) for my Remington model 700 .243 and finally deciding on a Zeiss conquest 3-15X42 scope I have taken it to the range once getting about a half inch group at 100 meters can cover the 4 shot group with a 20 cent peace but still have the Remington trigger on it which now I can see the target clearly I realize how heavy it is presuming it would be better to replace with a timney trigger than get it worked on I have found some timney triggers on a site but there appears to be several models for Remington 700s and was wondering what the difference was

Re: triggers
Hi Brendan, of the Timney triggers, the one you want is the model with side safety, adjustable to 1.5lb.

I have the Timney Calvin elite on my 5R and love it.
It goes down to 8ozs safely but I have mine set at 1 lb.
If you can find an old Remington trigger, a little polishing
and at lighter set of springs will get a nice, crisp trigger around
2 lbs. that is what I did on my 243 and 30/06

Re: triggers
2 Timneys, one Rifle Basic and one stoned to a crisp 3 lbs by me. One Timney is set at 3 lbs another is set at just under 2lbs (No creep). My Savage sports a rifle basic and my Encore was done by me. My favorite???? My Timney set at 1.5 lbs.

From what I understand, any trigger can be made to shoot lighter and crisper. The neophytes like me loose patience after taking them apart and putting them together too many times and botch the trigger up. We end up putting on an aftermarket trigger. I think here in the states the gunsmiths refuse to work on them or set them too light because of the legal consequences. [b]

I hear nothing but good things about the new Triggertech system! A lot of people say that it surpass everything on the market right now and it's not expansive. As soon as they make one with the safety for left handed, I'll get a hand on one!
