The 2.25-pound, adjustable, drop-in Timney Elite Hunter raises the bar for the Remington Model 700 bolt-action rifle and 700 actions.
Timney Triggers recently announced its newest drop-in aftermarket trigger, the Elite Hunter for the Remington Model 700. Moreover, Timney says the unit works in all Model 700 footprint actions. The Remington 700 is a staple of long-range build guns throughout the industry.
“The Model 700 was introduced in 1962 and Timney’s customers requested an aftermarket trigger for the 700 shortly thereafter,” said Calvin Motley, Director of Product Development for Timney. “John Vehr and I took a look at the Timney design in 2004 when I began working with him and made improvements based on what we had available at the time – as far as metals and machines. And we have been constantly improving and expanding our 700 offerings since that day. In fact, that is exactly what we did again with the Elite Hunter trigger. I took my 14 years of knowledge and engineering on our 700 replacement triggers and came up with what I think is the absolute best hunting trigger we’ve built for the Model 700.”
Timney engineered every component of the new Elite Hunter to elevate your accuracy with fully-adjustable over travel and pull weight. The Elite Hunter is adjustable from 1 ½ – 4 pounds and includes a bolt stop release and a trigger blocking side safety to ensure reliability.
Timney precision machines both the trigger’s sear and shoe. Meanwhile, the company heat treats to 56 Rockwell with a black oxide trigger coating and an NP-3 plated sear for maximum lubricity. The Elite Hunter is backed by the legendary Timney No Hassle, Lifetime Warranty.
