Timney trigger

Recommended Posts

I've got a new Howa 1500 rifle, and the trigger 'feels' okay. However, I am thinking of changing it and fitting a Timney one. Is this worth doing and are they easy to adjust?

I'm guessing that as a new rifle it has the Hact trigger?

When I had a Howa, several years ago, it had the older single stage and I was considering swapping for a Hact .. but tried one and found it 'good but..'.  A decent gunsmith tuned the original and I stayed with it .

A bit later I used another Howa with a Hact that had a new spring kit fitted and a little TLC and found it quite impressive. Had I not changed to a Tikka that's probably how I would have sorted it ...

I guess the point is to let someone who knows how to get the best out of it sort it to your needs?

Had a guided tour of the early Timney factory in Glenrock, Wyoming,  back in 1986 and consequently had triggers fitted to three of my rifles and scope mounts. Could not fault them

I bought and fitted the trigger, and I'm pleased with it. I've set it to 'break' just under 2lb. It can go down to 1.5lb.

It makes a world of difference, i had a 4lb trigger on a 260 i couldnt get any decent group until i changed to a Timney trigger, its a tad light but

To be honest, the final trigger on the How's wasn't bad. I forgot to check the pull weight before removing it though. I might swop them back just to see what it was set at.
