If you’re a long-range shooter, you know the importance of a good trigger. And while the Remington 700 platform is a popular choice for many long-range shooters, one of the first upgrades to a stock rifle is a new trigger. Or, if you’re putting together a new build based on the Model 700 platform, one of the most critical decisions is what trigger to include.

Timney’s new ‘Hit’ trigger for the Remington 700 is adjustable for pull weight (.5 to 2.0 lbs) and overtravel and is available with either a straight or curved trigger shoe.

Here’s their press release . . .

Phoenix, Arizona (July 22, 2019) — Timney Triggers, the oldest and largest trigger manufacturer in the world and the leader in the aftermarket trigger category, announced today its latest trigger in the People’s Choice Line of Excellence Triggers – The Hit.

Timney’s customers have been asking for a dedicated Remington Model 700 trigger for their long-range shooting and competition M700 platform rifles. They asked, Timney delivered – The Hit.

Timney’s engineers took a look at their M700 triggers and came up with a design that features new geometry. The HIT is robust and features our new Sear Engagement Adjustment Lock design (SEAL’d) that ensures a user-friendly experience, is adjustable for pull weight and overtravel, yet delicate enough to be set with a pull weight as low as 8 ounces up to 2 pounds.

Every part of The Hit is machined using state-of-the-art technology – no skimping with metal injection molding or stamped, old-school parts.

The trigger’s sear and trigger shoe are precision-machined, heat treated to 56 Rockwell with a black oxide trigger coating and an NP-3 plated sear for maximum lubricity and a lifetime of reliable performance.  The Hit is backed by the legendary Timney No Hassle, Lifetime Warranty.

The Hit is available in straight and curved trigger shoe in either black or nickel-plated finish with a retail price of $230.99 And $236.99 respectively.

The secret to long-range accuracy? It all starts with an amazing trigger and this trigger, is truly amazing.  For the discriminating shooter demanding the utmost performance from their trigger, The Hit is the best long-range precision trigger in Timney’s lineup today.

The new Hit trigger is Timney’s latest overnight success – 73 years in the making.

    For those who might make comments about the price: this price is right in the ballpark for a trigger in this range. It’s in the ballpark with the Jewells, less expensive than the higher end Bix ‘n Andy triggers.

    If you still want the basic, built-for-hunting-rifle trigger, I’m sure Timney isn’t planning on eliminating their classic single-stage 700 trigger any time soon.

      Yup.
      It’s right about what I paid for the trigger in my Ruger precision rifle.

      I must be jaded, I was expecting $299. I have had several Timney triggers over the years, everyone of them was well worth the money and put smiles on my face!

    Will it cure the infamous ‘700 trigger problem’?

    1. avatar Dyspeptic Gunsmith says:

      Just about any aftermarket Rem700 trigger will not exhibit the Walker Fire Control System problem with the connector floating off the front of the trigger bar. This trigger appears to have a safety that blocks trigger movement, rather than a safety that holds the sear off the trigger, as in the WFCS.

      That said, the match triggers that can be adjusted down to mere ounces should not be used in field conditions – they’re meant to be used on benches and firing lines. As a rule in my shop, I won’t install a trigger like this into a Rem700 that would be used for hunting or field use – that’s what the standard Rem700 Timney trigger is for. This is for things like precision rifle shooting and other competition shooting. I recommend that no field/hunting single-stage trigger is set to less than 3 to 3.5 lbs, depending on the rifle, shooter and situation.

        DYSPEPTIC GUNSMITH – I always like to hear your opinion on anything firearm related. Your one of the few people whose opinion I respect on this site (a VERY small list).

        As usual, I just learned new things from DG.

        Thanks!

    Curious as to why the straight trigger will not fit the Magpul stock.

    1. avatar Dyspeptic Gunsmith says:

      Offhand, without actually trying to fit a straight trigger into a Magpul stock, I would say this from the pictures and my “gut” hunch:

      The bottom tip of the straight trigger will contact the inside of the trigger guard on the Magpul stock, and either render it not able to be pulled, or the action to not be able to sit all the way down into the stock inlet.

    2. avatar Mantitude says:

      It has to do with the trigger guard of the AICS bottom “metal”. The rear face of it is angled too sharply for many flat-faced triggers to achieve adequate clearance.
