View Full Version : Timney Or Rifle Basix Trigger

I'm looking to upgrade my hunting rifle, it's a Ruger M77 MKII in .270. Love the rifle overall but have never liked the Ruger trigger. Anyone have any experience with these triggers in this application.

I have a rifle basix SAV-1 in my Savage Edge .270 and its great. I have never used Timney but for rifle basix I would highly recommend them.

I have several aftermarket triggers especially for Ruger. All things being equal, Rifle Basix is cheaper but workable. Timney is better. Jewell is best. Anything is better than a stock Ruger trigger

Timney. I've used them for a Weatherby Vanguard, and it was awesome for a bolt gun. Shot plenty in AR's as well and they're almost always super clean breaking great triggers. I'd highly recommend a timney over a rifle basix.

I have a Timney in my Winchester Mod 70 300 WSM. Never regretted it for a minute - absolutelt LOVE it. Crisp - no over travel - exactly as I like it!

Nothing but Basix in all my Savages. Fully adjustable from 'what the hell', down to 'oh my gosh'.

Honestly, you can't go wrong. Both are highly regarded.

Sounds like they are both great from the reviews I have read. It does sound like the Timney needs a little more fitting then the Rifle basix when installing though.
