I just purchased a Timney trigger for my Ruger m77 MkII 25-06,  I was wondering if any of you have first hand experience using this trigger?.  Any information or "tips" will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks, Jeff

         I've had one on my S&W for 20+ yrs and haven't had to do a thing to it. Don't know whats involved with putting it on your Ruger but mine came with easy to follow instructions. As far as maintenance goes I just wash mine out with lighter fluid every so often and let it dry. There may be better triggers out there but I honestly don't know how the feel could be better than what my Timney is!

I have the same trigger on my M77 MkII.  It must be fitted, so depending on your experience level with installing triggers, you may wish to have a gunsmith install it for you.  Besides the general safety checks and warnings that apply to installing any trigger, the one tip I can think of that applies to this trigger in particular is that you must machine, file, or stone the safety engagement tab to fit properly.  The M77 MkII safety engages this tab to block trigger movement.  You have to be very careful to not remove too much material off the tab, or the safety will no longer work because there will be too much space between the tab and the moon shaped contact surface of the safety, which will allow the trigger to fire even when "on safe."  Remove a small amount of material at a time from the top of the tab, install and test the safety.  Continue removing small amounts of metal from the tab until the safety will just engage, then don't remove any more.  As with any 2 lever hunting style trigger, beware of setting the trigger too light.  IMO, after installing 3 or 4 of these, this trigger is unsafe when set below about 2 lbs, so be sure and do the slam fire and bump tests to make sure it's set to a safe pull weight.

I  have to agree with RifleDude my local Firearms dealer installed mine in my 30-06, and didnt realise you had to file the safety engagement tab. Luckily I checked the safety before I left the shop, only to find the safety would not engage. This was a guy who had instaled Timneys before, just never on a Ruger. If you dont have any experience instaling triggers take RifleDude's advice and let a gunsmith do it for you.

Thanks to all for the info,  I'm going to try the installation my self, with the tips I'm recieving, but if I feel that its to complicated I'll take it to some one qualified.

I have had a Timney trigger ( on a Husqvarna AB Mauser) and a Canjar trigger on a Sako AV.  They were BOTH terrific, but I did not install them myself. The Canjar had a "set trigger" as well as a regular "hunting trigger".  I wouldn't hesitate to get either one again!!

I installed Timney triggers on my three Weatherby Vanguards, and i love them. Installation was easy, just followed the directions, you can either cut the safety slide, or just inlet a slot in the stock for it to slide in and out, took about fifteen minutes a trigger.
