Default Timney Trigger Question

Building a Remington Vssf II in 22-250, thumbhole, glass bedded, made plenty of clearence for the trigger etc etc.

I went to put this Timney in and I have a problem. First off I bought the Timney trigger (510 I think) with the safety and bolt release lever on it. My problem is with the allen screw that is on the side of the trigger that holds the bolt release lever in place. There is an allen screw that is adjustable and there is a guide above it, just a silver guide pin.. Well when the allen screw is tight enough to hold the lever on the guide pin the bolt stop will not release and the bolt just comes out of the reciever. When the allen head screw is loose enough for the bolt stop to operate properly then the top of the bolt relase lever comes off the top guide pin. Falls off track essentially.. There is no sweet spot..

Anyone have any experience with this trigger? Is this a common problem that there is a fix for or is it just bad design.. OR, do I have a defective trigger for some reason..

Any Advise?

Anyone? Can't believe I'm the only one too ever have this issue..

Cant get a reply from Timney on Email and when I try to call them during business hours there phones don't work. After business hours their phones work but you can only leave a message that's never returned..

I've used timney triggers several times. My guess is that you don't have enough relief on the stock. You have to remove alot of material around the triggers for timney's. But then again its hard to tell without being there to see what's going on.

Timney makes a good trigger but I hate how much trouble they can be to fit. For that reason I try to stay away from them. I use jewells for high end and rifle basix for a cheaper option.
