At SHOT Show this year CMC Triggers announced their first-ever bolt gun trigger and, of course, it’s for the Remington 700. It’s cool to see their signature trigger bow nested inside that bolt-action trigger guard. TTAG went hands-on with a prototype — just dry firing — and we were very impressed.
The safety lever is still an in-the-works item, but the rest of it is there.
I do generally prefer the feel of a flat trigger bow, and CMC’s hook on the bottom acts as an indexing point to aid with consistent finger placement.
One look and you know instantly this is a CMC product.
There is zero take-up whatsoever. Set your finger on that trigger and it’s as solid as a telephone pole.
Start applying pressure and it doesn’t move. No creep whatsoever.
Until you hit — at least how this one is adjusted — maybe two pounds of pressure. Then DINK, a sudden and complete break much like that proverbial glass rod we’re all looking for. It’s an absolutely fantastic trigger.
