    Looking for a new trigger for my old style ruger 77 with the safety on the tang

    any one have any opinions on timney,jewell or rifle basix.

    I see with rifle basix you just replace the sear and use the old trigger system

    looks easy and fairly inexpensive but i want to do it right the first time.

    thanks for any info. pat

    I wish Jewell made one. The Timney's I've done on the older Ruger required removing some internal wood from the stock, but worked great after you got everything just right. AJ

    I have timneys on 2 Rem 700s. I absolutely love them. Will never have another hunting rifle without one. I was able to install them myself in about 10 minutes with the correct size punch. Both of mine have HS stocks on them and I was not required to do any stock mods for fit.

    I installed a Timney on my Ruger M77 MKII several years back. It required a lot of filing and fitting but it made that rifle a tack driver. That was a .223 in the stainless synthetic.

    I have used rifle basix on three different guns, Savage, CZ & a Howa. I liked them a lot and they are reasonably priced, easy to install. I know the Timney and jewell are probably better but the rifle basix did what I wanted. The Howa had a great trigger from the factory and I would not do one again because you wont gain a lot. It really helped the CZ a lot and even helped the accu trigger on the savage

    I just installed a rifle basix on my Ruger Hawkeye. It couldn't have been any easier. I went from over 6 lbs of trigger pull to a little less than 3 lbs instantly. Lookout groundhogs!
