Timney has long made some of the best aftermarket triggers available for the popular Remington 700 rifle platform. But they’re not inexpensive. Now Timney’s come up with an entry-level 700 trigger that’s priced at a level just about anyone can afford. Their new non-adjustable Impact 700 trigger has a pull weight of between three and four pounds, costs a mere $125…and it’s a Timney.

Here’s their press release . . .

Timney has been asked to build a Remington Model 700 replacement trigger at a cost-effective price that does not compromise on quality. You asked. Timney listened. 

Introducing the Impact 700 – the newest trigger in Timney’s extensive line of Remington 700 triggers that are American-made by the incredible craftsmen and women who build, The World’s Finest Triggers.

Timney’s engineers designed this entry-level trigger by machining the parts from billet steel – no skimping with metal injection molding or rolled parts while still hand-assembling, testing, and calibrating each trigger at a price you asked for – $124.99 MSRP.

This new trigger has a factory set pull weight of 3 – 4 pounds (non-adjustable) that will give you a crisp, clean break and features our Sear Engagement Adjustment Lock design (SEAL’d) which ensures a user-friendly experience. 

The Impact 700 is the next evolution of accuracy in a drop-in, replacement trigger for the iconic Remington Model 700 rifle.  The secret to accuracy? It all starts with an amazing trigger and this trigger is truly amazing. The new Impact 700 trigger is Timney’s latest, innovative, overnight success – 77 years in the making.

      • Factory-tuned pull weight of 3 – 4 lbs.

  1. WHY does anyone pay $1400 for a bolt action when they can have a very nice AR for $1000, to include a match trigger kit? The latter will group 1 MOA, and in the field, you’re not shooting better than that. targets move, don’t offer nice little white dots to center your crosshairs on, wind, mirage, up and down angles, all sorts of things prove that there’s really no difference between 1 MOA and 1/2 MOA. You aint got wind flags, sandbagged bench and all day to make the shot. The AR can be a shtf or home defense gun. It’s threaded for a silencer, it’s rust-resistant, dark finish, chrome chamber, .22lr conversion unit, various lengths of barrels and rifling twist rates, all sorts of things make it 10x as much of a “must have” as any bolt action.

    • I dont like ARs.
      I like to target shoot.
      I am not using a bolt rifle for some shtf or home defense situation or any other of the things you mention.
      I also like lever action rifles too.

    • I agree. On both the capability-delivered and difficulty / complexity to manufacture it is absolutely a better value in just about every way.

      I’d also dd that – while, as you noted, a bolt gun may have more mechanical / theoretical accuracy – the AR will deliver better practical groups for nearly everyone, because it requires next to no body movement in between shots. An expert can eventually train himself not to disturb his aim between shots; a self-loader delivers that the moment you pick it up.

      A recent TFB cited a few advantages for bolt guns, but they’re also theoretical: quieter with a suppressor (something readily attainable with a shutoff gas block), and able to go more rounds between parts replacement – but who will ever fire more rounds through a bolt gun than the thousands an AR can fire before you even think about replacing anything? I’ve put more rounds through numerous autoloaders in an afternoon than in all three bolt guns I’ve ever owned, put together.

  2. I’tll cost you $150 to get your M700’s muzzle threaded and without the can(and rapidfire) , your first shot might well be your last, as a “sniper”. The entire gun has to gone from your possession for a month or more, gotta use an FFL, etc. An AR, made with an 80% lower is off the books, so of course I dont want to put it on the books by putting a number on the receiver and shipping it thru an FFL, Not that I’d have to, of course, since the lower and upper recievers come apart in 3 seconds

  3. I”ve owned no longarms but ARs for the past 40 years. There’s a reason that is the case.

  4. Now if they just made a 2oz trigger since Jewell is temporarily out of business.

  5. The link to Timney’s website is not correct.
    It’s setup as a .co instead of .com

  6. I installed a Timney trigger on my M96.

    The receiver needed some filing to fit. So did the aftermarket Choate stock. But worth the effort and a lot better than the stock trigger.

  7. This Timney trigger is most likely destined for an OEM contract and is probably the reason for it’s existence.

  8. I know the Remington 700 was the “go to” rifle merely because the military adopted it.
    Some bean counter figured out it was cheaper.
    Gunnery Sergeant Carlos Hathcoock recommended the Winchester M70 in 30-06.
    But it was more expensive.

    With all the PRS offerings, that come stock with good to excellent triggers, is the demand for Remington 700 still there?

    • It’s easy to work on/customize with an extensive aftermarket and several high(er) quality clone versions. With that said there are a lot of good designs that may work better for the individual preference of any number of shooters.

  9. I’m more than a little shocked that a manufacturer of a precision, safety-related assembly is basically an assembler, not an in-house production facility. I also find it stunning that Jewell hadn’t already found an alternate supply source. I’ve disassembled more than a few triggers to study their innards. With machining technology that has been used for 40+ years, i.e., CNC mill and wire EDM, why hasn’t Jewell kept their “sourcing” in-house? Here’s a thought: maybe Jewell doesn’t have a supply problem, but a cash problem. Maybe they haven’t been able to keep up with there bills?
