I have not yet owned a Calvin, but I have dry fired a handful on other guys rifles at matches. Very good trigger - I'd say it's Timney's answer to the HVR, and they brought their A Game.

I don't use the benchrest springs in my hunting rifles, and I don't tune the sear engagement as low, but the light pull weight isn't the only thing you're buying in the HVR. I set them up at 2lbs and do some tinkering to be sure I have 20thou+ of sear engagement for hunting rifles.

Force of habit for me, I grew up on two stage triggers, have them in all of my AR's, so I try to mimic that in my bolt guns whenever I can.

This will sound funny, and probably dumb, but the reason I want to try a 2 stage trigger, is cause I use the front safety blade on a savige accu trigger, to ger ready.

My 760 with tinmney measured 2.5 on my cheap scale. Felt fine to me. I was not uncomfortable.

Take a look at the TriggerTech Primary for Rem700. They are pretty much idiot proof and around $140.

well guys for a hunting trigger do you need this? I have 7 700's all have been rebuilt, they all have the factory trigger tuned by the smiths who rebuilt them, with these rifles I have taken 67 deer beyond 400 yards, 50 beyond 600, a handful beyond a grand, and one at .77 miles how much less beyond 2#'s do you need for hunting?

No of course not. But some people just like better things then others. Most long range shooters prefer a lighter trigger. But it is what you are used to.

But since you had yours tuned, I am not sure why you are questioning people buying a replacement. Myself, I would rather drop one in, then deal with a gunsmith. I am sure yours is nicer. But I just like to do it myself.

Again I like to do things myself. Even if it spites me. I do light gun smithing. Take things apart.

If you got a gun smith you trust, good for you. I just like to do things myself. Stuborn.

I would rather tune the trigger myself, if I was going to go that route. Lots of discussion on the internet on tuning 700 triggers. Probably is the way to go.



I bought my Timney, cause I was hoping the safety would be quiter.

that's why Remington has a bad reputation for triggers, too many do it yourselfers messing with triggers.
