Geez, I looked up the last post where I mentioned this trigger...
It was the "Out-of-town SIL's AR" where we put his AR together and he bought a Timney Trigger.

And I tried it - And it was GOOD!! :great:

I shoulda never touched it... I ordered one for myself and it arrived around June 5th.
And 3 months later - I finally get around to putting it in!!

The Del-Ton LPK I put in my AR had a horrible trigger!!!
About a 99 pound pull and it moved a mile and a half before it fired...
And didn't always let the hammer fly at the same place twice - That's how it felt to me anyway.

Sucked like a black hole.

So, here is my beloved AR Lower with the New Timney "AR-10 COMPETITION" trigger and instructions.
Image

You have to pull the "grip" off because theres a spring in the grip that pushes a detent against the safety lever.
Safety lever has to come out to get the stock trigger parts out of the lower.
Then push the 2 trigger pins out and here we are:
Image

The Timney Trigger goes in the lower and the 2 stock trigger pins go back in to hold it in place.
And do you see the allen wrench?
Image
There are 2 little set screws that tighten against the trigger pins to hold them in place.
And you can see where they are on each side of the trigger.
You can also see that there is a "wire" on each side (which is the ends of the spring) that
runs right over the top of the holes where the set screws are.
Moving them over a bit to get the allen wrench in there isn't difficult at all.

See in the below picture - There are 2 more little set-screws sitting on top of the "Timney Triggers" sticker.
Image
Those go in the same holes as the other 2 set-screws and are tightened on top of them,
to keep them locked into place. This was a little harder to do...
To get the wire spring-ends moved out of the way far enough to get that 2nd set-screw started.
But not too bad - my worst fear was I'd drop the set-screw and lose it - but I didn't!! :D

Once you get the set-screws locked into place, Put the safety-lever back in, put the detent
in the hole in the lower where the grip goes on and tighten the grip securely.
Image
Put the upper back onto the lower...
And - You're done!! :cool:
This Timney Trigger is SO much nicer than the original...
Expensive as hell... :( But a great freakin' trigger!!

I have the old "trigger group" now to use in my next AR build.
Image

I HAVE tried this new trigger out and I'll have a reloading/range report on it here to post pretty soon.

Thanks for reading!!

I'll try to be less like Randy from now on and show up here a little more often.
I suppose no one has even noticed that I've been a little "scarce" around here lately..

Thank you Jason, Pictures and text are excellent. I see a 4 part You Tube video in your future. "How to assemble your first AR-15 rifle".

Nice write up. very informative and useful.

I don't care what weapon is being upgraded, a good trigger is always a big improvement, and Timney takes front stage IMO. I just replaced another one myself, a Ruger American that also had a million pounds of pull and about a 1/2 mile of travel, yuck. $130 later and I have a sweet 1.5 lb. trigger to work with.

You know what really cracks me up about these all great accu triggers, and Pro X or what ever Remington calls them, and all the others, the manufacturer always gives the factory adjustable trigger a false review. I mean how can anyone consider a 4 lb. trigger that breaks like it's riding on sand paper anything but terrible?

When I'm shooting at the range, I'll reduce it another few ounces, but for hunting 1.5 is perfect.

GS
