Anyone have any experience with the Timney trigger for the Mosin's?
I have one in my Mosin and love it. The trigger goes from a sloppy pound to fit military trigger to a breaks like glass match trigger. For it to fit the stoxk must be inletted. It took me a few hours with a dremel, but it was worth every minute. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for an upgrade.
Just adding a spacer and polishing all of the trigger contacts made a world of a difference. Plus it it just about free to do. There are a lot of youtube videos on how to do it.
trigger reset spring on ebay.
$100. Timney trigger on a $90. gun.
Think about it before your $600. into a $90. gun........like me:dunno:
Another vote for home trigger job.
Cut a spacer from credit card and a little polishing is all that is needed.
There is really nothing wrong with that, as long as you do it with your eyes wide open. My Mosin is now worth a lot more sold in parts than whole.
Why I did it? For the entertainment value.
i've got a mosin with a lot more $ into it than it's worth... and i'd do it all over again.
very fun, quite accurate with match grade (about 2 MOA on a good day, under 10 rounds... gets a bit hot after that).
now Archangel has those damn tempting looking stocks... and there's the 10 round magazines... damnit.
i have no experience with the timney trigger in a mosin, but have done the home trigger job/spacer/spring on more than one and say it is well worth it.
The money and time I spent on my mosin was well worth the experience I gained.
And it was a lot of fun.
I still haven’t shot it.
Be careful polishing the trigger assembly its easy to wind up with a 1lb or less trigger pull.:dunno:
Anyone have more information on this credit card home trigger fix up? Is there a step by step, or video out there for dummies?
This is my feeling exactly. I can learn how to do things with a cheap rifle and gain the skills needed to do them better on an expensive rifle. My Mosin is not an investment, I don't make purchases for it looking at the "long term resale." I know what I want out of the gun, I want a .30 caliber rifle, with a 22" barrel, Scout style scope mounting, and slicked up action, that I built with the Mosin I can achieve that.
