When the X Mark Pro trigger was recalled on my ADL and BDL I replaced them with the Timney 510. They are both hunting rifles and I couldn't be happier with my decision.

Excellent decision!

I just did my first trigger and it happened to be on my Rem 270 ADL, but only after researching it online. I was fortunate to find a good walk through with pictures. I did not mess with any of the springs, just the adjustment, and polishing. It reduced my groups on factory ammunition by almost .750 @ 100 yards.

I want to say my ADL is from around the same year.

That's some real research and since it's on the internet it just has to be correct! That's just fantastic---An article from some guy you don't know on a website entitled "homegunsmith" and great big capital letters telling you not to do what he did!

Naturally discretion should be used 100% of the time regarding anything on the web, that goes without saying.

But with that said, topgun, If you are not comfortable or lack confidence in your mechanical abilities, it would be strongly advisable to leave it to a professional.

I am sure you may be able to find one fairly close to home, or check with your local Rod and Gun Club, often times they know the who's who's of gunsmiths in the area. Which is a dying trade in many parts, or at least, finding a very knowledgeable one can be difficult in some parts of the country.
Once again, please be safe, and seek a professional if you have any doubts in your abilities.

Tollster---You just joined the site today and unless you have been lurking here for a long time before you signed on today you probably have no idea why I posted what I did regarding that Remington he worked on and I'll just leave it at that!

Being the new guy, I kind of figured there where plenty of old bulls in the arena, so I erred on professionalism.. Not here to bust on anyone, but if I can help in anyway, I would like to contribute to the forum without stepping on people or misdirecting them in any way,that was the intention of the post.
It just seemed like a lot of rooms with things I have in common, and regular inputs, rather than 3 years old threads at the top of each page. Never been a lurker.

Just sell the rifle and move on.

The Ruger 77, Kimber 84M and Winchester M70's have better triggers, actions and safeties.

Get him a Kimber 84M. That's a nice rifle.

Quick question: Is the 2001 or so trigger assembly interchangeable with say, mid-late 70's xtrigger?
I have an older BDl with the X trigger, thought about putting a timney on the 270 ADL, and bumping that trigger to the BDL..

The old Xtrigger isn't worth reworking, but think the newer ADL with the 3 adjustables may be worth the swap out, not to mention a new timney of the ADL.
