    Timney triggers for X7s

    For those of you looking for a replacement trigger, Timney now makes a trigger for the Rem 783. The 783 uses Marlin's pro fire trigger, stolen from the X7. I have a 783 trigger on one of my X7s, works great. Only difference is the safety lever is black on the 783 version. Mike

    Good to know but so far my original trigger works well enough.

    Good to know, but, I set mine to 3 lbs., and never looked back, gun is capable of better than I can shoot it, and has killed a bunch of deer. T Rex

    You are correct, the Profire trigger IMHO is the best factory trigger available. Probably why Remington uses clones for the 783. I have 9 Profire triggers and do the tweaking on my bud's 2. Very few issues. Two were creepier than Hillary, fixed by polishing. One I couldn't get the creep out, put in new sear, problem solved. Two would not adjust below 3#. I like 2.5# on hunting rigs. Replaced the trigger springs with ballpoint pen springs, problem solved. At first I did not like the blade in the trigger. I started treating them as two stage as the weight needed to move the central safety blade back to the trigger is 8-10 oz. Measured on an analog trigger scale. I like them now.

    I have procured a Timney trigger and installed it on my factory XS7 243. The jury is still out, need to shoot. However, my initial impression is not enough of a wow factor to recommend spending $149. Three pros: 1. For those who don't like the central blade, doesn't have one. 2. Trigger will adjust down to 1.5#, maybe less. 3. You can adjust overtravel.

    +1 on the original trigger and adjusting to 3lb.

    And for those of you that may still have the original plastic trigger guard and would like metal, check out the sticky at the top of this Forum Group.

    Slight adjustment widening one of the screw holes and you are all set. Silver or black, Brownells and Midway usually have them. Links are in that thread!
