    New Trigger for my Bolt gun ??

    I used to always put Timneys in my bolt guns when building them, and have been happy. But the last few guns I bought had great triggers. I bought a Bergara LRP that has a trigger tech and its nice. But I also bought a lower end Bergara that has "Bergara Trigger". Not horrible but is noticeable.

    So, if your buying a new trigger, what would it be? Gracias amigos!!!

    Timney’s gonna be hard to beat, but I’m not up to date with “latest/greatest” PB.
    Like your Bergarra’s my couple of Tikka’s had good triggers after changing a spring.

    My old school 700’s had Timneys.

    Rem700 = Timney, 100%. Back in the day when it cost $2,500 to get a decent bolt gun up and running. You would buy a Rem 700 and be left with only an action when done.

    Triggertech diamond. Best trigger I have ever used hands down. Have one on my 6.5 and it is just a perfect trigger.

    Like competition 1911ís in the day; weíd use slide and frame, a few small parts- and replace everything else.

    I put a 2 stage Geissele Super 700 in my Bergara B14 HMR. I like it a lot.

    New Trigger for my Bolt gun ??

    The only bolt gun triggers Iíve bought are Timneys, to replace X-Mark Pros and a pre-AccuTrigger.


    I may be in the same situation as you soon. Iím considering getting a Bergara Hunter, and am curious if the triggers are as good as the HMRs. I need to directly compare the HMR to a Timney.

    I don't know if Jewell makes one for the B, but they are still my favorite from using back in my 6ppc BR days...trying my first Triggertech on a recent Vudoo purchase but need more time behind it & it's nice so far.

    Have a Timney Calvin Elite on a model 7 & it's a fine trigger as well...I just prefer the skinny shoe on the Jewells.

    Grizz, my gun is an HMR, not a bad trigger if you don't run better ones on side by side guns.

    Thatís exactly why I havenít directly compared the HMR to a Timney beforeÖ.Iíd probably end up upgrading the HMRs.

    I havenít measured it since it was new, and it doesnít seem to have lightened up much, if any. Iíll measure it within the next couple days. I think it was around 4 lbs when new, but thatís not much more than my Timneys.
