Timney Triggers recently announced its newest aftermarket, drop-in trigger, dubbed The Hit. Designed specifically for long-range and competition Remington M700 rifle platforms, Timeny’s The Hit derives from customer requests.

Timney Triggers The Hit Features

Timney’s engineers took a look at their M700 triggers and came up with a design that features new geometry. The Hit features a new Sear Engagement Adjustment Lock design (SEAL’d) that ensure a user-friendly experience, according to Timney. The robust unit delivers adjustability for pull weight and overtravel. However, it maintains the ability to set a pull weight as low as 8 ounces or up to 2 pounds.

Timney machines every part of The Hit. The trigger’s precision-machined sear and trigger shoe utilize a 56 Rockwell heat treatment with a black oxide trigger coating and an NP-3 plated sear. This delivers maximum lubricity and a lifetime of reliable performance, according to Timney. The Hit also includes Timney’s No Hassle, Lifetime Warranty.

“The Model 700 was introduced in 1962 and Timney’s customers requested an aftermarket trigger for the 700 shortly thereafter,” said Calvin Motley, Director of Product Development for Timney.  “John Vehr and I took a look at the Timney design in 2004 when I began working with him and made improvements based on what we had available at the time – as far as metals and machines.  And we have been constantly improving and expanding our 700 lineups since that day.  In fact, that is exactly what we did again with the HIT trigger.  I took my 14 years of knowledge and engineering on our 700 replacement triggers and came up with what I think is the absolute best long-range, shooting competition trigger we’ve built for the M700 actions.”
