    Came across something I've never seen before on a Remington 1100. This came on a Rem 1100 LH that I picked up yesterday. Its a Remington factory trigger housing (aluminum), but has the Timney wide trigger blade and creep adjustment screw. I've only ever seen these on one of the Timney all-steel trigger housings before. Was this possibly an early conversion before he made his own housings, a hunting version of the Timney, or maybe just a cheaper alternative for someone who didn't want to pay full boat for a steel trigger?

    Finish is a little worn, and it looks like someone had their initials engraved on the trigger guard, then obliterated it before they sold it. What I'll probably do is when I come across another factory trigger in good shape, send it and this one to a gunsmith and have him install this blade in the new trigger. I've always had problems with the very narrow factory trigger blade (hurts my finger since I'm a slapper), so this will work quite well for me. I'm probably going to end up buying an all-steel timney anyways as my primary trigger, so I'll probably hold onto this one as a backup trigger.
