Sheesh....What is up with Remington triggers lately?? First the Walker design was deemed unsafe, now this? 

After witnessing INNUMERABLE cases of "trigger finger "f" syndrome", ie... finger resting on trigger of a firearm that's in an unsafe firing position. 

I see this inexplicable phenomenon at ranges, gun shops, or wherever gun's are present around people. One can only wonder how many negligent, (I don't subscribe to accidental) discharges would be eliminated.

This is a great time to replace the Remington factory trigger with a Timney. Don't send it back to Big Green, just to get an equally crappy trigger back from them. 

Replace!! 

Remington 700 w/Safety

Remington 700 w/Safety

The 510 comes with a safety that blocks the trigger, not the sear, which is a totally new design. No screws, drilling, or tapping required.

The Model 510 will bring a whole new realm of accuracy to your Remington rifle. Each trigger is geometrically identical with tolerances less than .0005”. adjustable from 1.5 to 4 lbs.

Also available:

  • Nickel Plated #512
  • Left Hand #511
  • Left Hand / Nickel Plated #516

How is the Timney Remington 700 trigger different from the factory trigger? There are two major differences. The first is that the Timney trigger is made from a solid block of heat treated steel; there's no 'connector bar' to come loose.

The second difference is that our 510 trigger comes with a trigger blocking safety; that means there's no way to move the trigger when it's on safe, so when you take it off safe the trigger stays in the same position it started from. Remember though, firearms are dangerous; there is only one way to prevent injuries with a firearm Keep It Pointed In A Safe Direction AT ALL TIMES.

Makes me wonder about my Model 7MS out of the Custom Shop which is about 15 years old. I went on the Timney site and they list a trigger for the 7 but it's with no safe and all of the ones for the 700 say with safe. Any ideas? i also looked for dealers within 200 miles and there were none.

Give 'em a call, Skip. Surely they make one for your rifle with a safety.

Fully adjustable. Uses safety and bolt-stop from your present trigger. Brings trigger control you never thought possible to your Remington 7. Adjustable from 1 to 4 pounds.

OKEY DOKEY, thanks. Wonder if Ted is looking into one for the 7MS that he purchased recently.

I bought a new Remy 700 last year and out of habit replaced the trigger soon after with a Timney purchased from SWFA.  Big Smile

May we assume it was a major improvement to the factory trigger, Mr. Mike?

I liked the older-style 40X trigger on my LTR, but a Timney is a worthwhile investment.

Not sure I'd say a major improvement over the x-mark pro trigger but I like the feel and performance of the Timney better, their smooth, consistent, and break cleanly.

I've hated the X-Mark Pro trigger since it's conception. That ridiculous "screw" sticking out of the trigger shoe?? What?? 

I too like the older Remington triggers and have them in my stuff.

I own no rifles with a Remington trigger.  For as good as their standard barrels (usually) are, their triggers are equally bad.


Timney is a decent solution but can rub bottom metal on some stocks.  I am a fan of Rifle Basix triggers.  That said, SWFA has the Timneys on sale at a very nice price, and rub'in is race'in, so...

+1. I switched my x-mark trigger out to a Rifle Basix before I even shot it.

My Etronx has a Remington trigger... but it's electric...  safer than any mechanical trigger made...


What do they put in the Custom Shop rifles?

For the hunting rifles at least, the Custom Shop uses the same X-Mark Pro trigger that they use on standard production 700's, except that they've massaged it a little for a crisper, lighter pull than the standard factory rifles.

Not sure what triggers the CS uses for their "target" rifles. For what they cost, I would rather build a target rifle from the ground up with the action, barrel, trigger, and stock that I want rather than be limited by OEM Remington components.

Remington is in a no-win situation with their triggers. Use a heavy trigger with excess creep: shooters complain. Use a light, crisp trigger: some idiot does something stupid and they get sued... again. The former approach costs them much less. Due to the highly publicized controversy surrounding the original Walker trigger, they now have to over compensate on pull weight and sear engagement to keep from getting sued again, whether they're at fault or not. If they don't and someone else has a negligent discharge, a shrewd attorney only has to point to the previous case to show they were well aware of the "problem" and "should have known better," ergo: negligence. The whole reason they changed to the new XMP trigger is due to legal battles. In all likelihood, all but maybe a tiny minority of existing triggers are perfectly safe, but they have to err on the side of caution to either avoid litigation or so they can demonstrate they were responsive to safety concerns if they ever face legal challenges over their trigger again. The end result of all this.... crappy triggers. Attorneys and good triggers cannot coexist.

Negative, Ghost Rider.

The trigger on that rifle is decent as-is, but I might one day elect to Timney it.  All other Remington and Remington pattern rifles I own have aftermarket triggers. I like Basix triggers as well as Timney. Jewell is a step above those, but I typically don't see a need to go whole hog into Jewell on a hunting rifle.

I avoid the whole issue by avoiding Remington.  Someone needs to tell Remington that the average height of American Men is no longer 5' 5" like back in the 1830s.....they need to put in some freaking Length of Pull on their stocks!  ( and.... fix that oops problem of guns going off accidentally! )

My hunting partner has a Jewell trigger on his 700 .300 Ultra Mag.
