View Full Version : Savage Accutriggers

11-06-2009, 2:14 PM
So I have been looking at buying a Savage 30-06 and there is about a $140-$240 difference in price (depending on if its on sale) between having an accutrigger and not having one. Is the accutrigger really all that great considering I can drop in a Timney for cheaper? or should I get the one without and then invest that on top of what I already plan on spending for optics?

I have a Savage and it doesn't have a accu trigger. Ive shot Savages with accu triggers. it didn't make me a better shot. I have had zero problems with my non accu trigger savage

I thought about getting a Savage just the other day when I read about the Savage factory team winning a big F series match in Europe with out of the box FX/TRs
They seem affordable --
F series guys:
are they REALLY that accurate (30 inch barrel!) ?

Accutriggers are nice, but so is a Timney. If I had to choose I would go with the Accutrigger. Its straight from the factory.

I have shot Savage in two different calibers (17, 22-250) with accutrigger and 3 without (17, 22-250, 30-06). I'll take the accutrigger any day. Much smoother and can go with a lighter trigger pull. Have not been able to compare it with the Timney.

I have a 10FP-HS wiht the Accutrigger and it's great. It's easily adjustable for pull and has a very crisp let-off. I wouldn't have it any other way.

I have a 12 BVSS in 300 WSM and it has the Accutrigger, I have an older 112 in 25.06 and no Accutrigger, biught an aftermarket drop in upgrade from Brownells. Each works fine, very crisp and clean. I think the Accutrigger is fine, but that Savage tends to oversell it a bit.

I have the accutrigger, it helps not to have to pull a tight trigger when a hair line can be a difference of 10 inches on the target.

I don't care for the accutrigger (I've got 3 Savages) for $97 I'll go with the Sharp Shooter Supply Competition Trigger adjustable from 12 Oz to 2 Lbs.

I have 2 savage rifles , one of witch had the accutrigger when I bought and i replaced it with a rifle basix. To me the accutrigger feels very much like a 2 stage trigger witch i dont care for. I would buy the one without and then go aftermarket

I'd personally go BASIX or Timney, but i do honestly believe that almost any trigger adjusted correctly can be a joy to shoot

Owning 3 Savages, 2 with Accutrigger, I prefer the Accutrigger.

My next gun on the list is the Savage 10 Precision Carbine 308. 20" barrel and .5" groups at 100 yards, while only 7lbs. I think I plan on getting it for my next field gun.

Thank you all very much for your help. I think im going to go for the one without the Accutrigger and just drop in a better trigger.
