The Timney Triggers Winchester 70 Trigger is the perfect replacement for your stock Winchester Model 70 hunting rifle trigger. Its factory-calibrated setup provides you with consistent accuracy, while its adjustable creep, follow-through, and pull weight allow for a custom feel. Easy to install with no gunsmith required, you'll be ready to shoot in no time.
The Timney Winchester 70 Trigger is fully adjustable for Sear Engagement (Creep), Overtravel (Follow-through) and pull weight. Adjustment of the pull weight is completed by turning the pull weight screw with a 5/64 hex Wrench. Adjustment of the sear engagement and overtravel is completed using a .050 hex Wrench.
Sear engagement controls the amount of movement the trigger has before it breaks. Sear engagement is custom set at the Timney Factory and shouldn't need adjustment. However, if you want to adjust your triggers sear engagement (Creep) the procedure is as follows:
With the rifle unloaded and cocked. Engage safety. Turn the sear engagement screw clockwise until it stops. Slowly turn it counterclockwise 1/8 of a turn or one flat of the .050 hex wrench. The safety should move freely but the trigger should not move when the safety is engaged.
Overtravel (Follow Through) is the distance the trigger moves after it fires. Timney Triggers adjust the overtravel to factory specifications but overtravel is a matter of preference and can be increased or decreased to match your choice. The over-travel screw is on the front of the housing just above the pull-weight screw. With the trigger in the fired position and using a .050 hex wrench, turn the screw clockwise until it stops. Once the screw stops, turn the screw counterclockwise 1/8 of a turn or one flat of the hex wrench. Squeeze the trigger as you turn the screw to the desired amount of follow-through. BE CAREFUL if the overtravel is set too tight the trigger will not fire.
Pull weight is controlled by the bottom screw on the front of the housing. Using a 5/64 hex wrench turn the screw clockwise to increase the pull weight or counterclockwise to decrease the pull weight. From the factory, the pull weight is set at 3 lbs.
