01-10-2006, 5:51 PM
the trigger that came stock on my new m70 270 WSM is a real POS. its gotta be over 5lbs, and im not too keen on trying to adjust a crappy trigger anyway.

i see timney on some sites, for about $100.
anyone have any thoughts on timney? how about canjar?
i keep hearing about jewel, but never really tried one out. (can only seem to find a phone #, no listed prices)

just looking to see if anyone has suggestions on whats the best trigger for a decent price.

$40 and a smith is all it took for my model 70. I'm happy with it.

what was the $40? you mean this is what you paid the gunsmith?

i was afraid that even buying an aftermarket trigger, would require some smithing.

yeah thats what i figured he meant.
i worked it a little, and got it between 2-3 lbs. and was dropping the back end to see if it was safe, and it kept going off. so i dont know if i can find a balance, but then again im no gunsmith.
thats why i figured i would maybe research some of these other triggers.
