    A Remington 700 came to live at my house. Price was very very resonable since the trigger has a rattle and does not work.
    I would like to replace the trigger with some thing but the trinney seems a bit on the pricy side.

    I have seen other triggers that are supposed to fit a bit less pricy, any experince with them?

    I would also be willing to buy a Remington trigger in working condition.

    Just had my 84 made 700 out last night. Been thinking the same but trigger on mine is nice and crisp. Might consider a Timney or other. Heard some 700 model years locked the bolt when safety is applied but later changed. Seems like a lot went into the gun as far as wood, polish, and bluing 40 years back. Sure I paid under $350 for mine new. Wonder what the future will hold for Remington?

    it's on the auction block here pretty soon.

    look at Huber ball triggers Al.
    I put one in my Mauser and got it adjusted how I like it after a little trial and error but now it's as good as anything.
    it's a touch over 3lbs. but solid feeling and all day long reliable.

    Thank you every one. I like the sounds of the shilen trigger very much. How ever for a decent price you need to jump all over the net as a stock black trigger can go from $95.00 to as much as 129.00 no shipping included. then if you want a stainless one then the price just is even worse.

    Even though the rifle i have is stainless I am thinking on the black trigger so people righ off the bat know it is aftermarket.

    I have other 700 Remingtons and love the stock triggers and have never had a problem with them. I have adjusted the pull my self useing sniper country instructions and have did the slam test on each rifle several times.
    Would think there would be a couple take off stock remington triggers on the market I would be intrested in if the price was right.
    But for some reason there seems to be a shortage of them.

    Well,You evidently don't want a quality trigger in the rifle. Good luck on putting a cheap trigger in it!
     
  11. He could check with Numerich Arms and see if they have a factory trigger for it if he wanted to

    As for a quality trigger for the Remington 700 all seem to get great reviews.
    Seemed the most complints were about a narrow shoe and sharpe edges.

    There are even people like me who don't mind the stock trigger some are supposed to have had a problem with.

    I just do not see paying near $300.00 for a trigger tht doesn't get any better reviews than a $100.00 Shielen or a 150.00 trinney.

    I had several 700's 60-70 vintage and they had an adjustable triggers. My present (1989 vintage) mountain rifle 30-06 has the same trigger but the adjusting allen set screw was covered with lacquer. Removing it allowed me to adjust it down to 2.5-3 lbs. pull.
    I have Timney triggers on some of my other guns and the stock Remington is equal to them.

    I have several other 700's my self and a model 7. All have the same adjustable trigger as do my 700 Muzzle loaders. All had laqure covered screws on the adjustments.
    But the one I am needeing to repair had a part rattleing inside the trigger group.

    Always like that Model 7 alley. Like that 20 inch barrel and one in 243 sounds ideal for deer.

    My model 7 is chambered in 7mm 08.
    I have a Low Power Pendex Light seeker scope on it and is a dream to carry in the UP cedar swamp.

    I am guessing you have probably already bought a trigger but the Timney triggers are only #125 incl shipping on eBay and look very simple to install yourself.
