    Can you identify this trigger?

    Looks to me like an 1100 release without the bottom closer button and the proper hammer? The photo isn't showing the catch notch for the release hook?

    Fits in an 870 and works perfectly better than any 1100 or 11-87 release I have used just couldn't shoot the 870 it was too flat shooting for me.Jerry

    Its a Timney Steel release for an 870 Remington. The hook does not catch the hammer, it catches the primary sear and pulls it back when you release the trigger. The button on the bottom "un-sets" the release so you can open the gun if you don't need to shoot. There is no safety on the trigger. These are highly sought after by 870 shooters and one in this condition should fetch $300.00 or so.

    Speed lock triggers were adjustable and are not too common the one here is a steel 870 release his standard trigger and is as good as they get it will last a life time built like a bank vault a great trigger made by a master trigger maker. His older triggers were excellent quality was not as high in the end but he was in his 80's by then. These triggers sell for 250.00 to 300.00 and are no longer made and the price will rise in time I'm sure.
