First Look: Timney Hit Trigger

posted on August 6, 2019

Timney Triggers is rolling out the latest trigger in the company's People’s Choice Line of Excellence Triggers – The Hit. Designed to work with the Remington Model 700, this drop-in trigger design is particularly oriented for 700-platform rifles designed for long-range shooting and competition use. The features found in The Hit are incorporated as a result of the demands made by consumers for a new trigger design, which explains its position in the "People's Choice" product lineup. 

Timney’s engineers analyzed the company's existing Model 700 trigger line and created a design that features new geometry for the trigger. The robust Hit trigger features the new Sear Engagement Adjustment Lock design (SEAL'd), which ensures a user-friendly experience and is adjustable for pull weight and overtravel but is still delicate enough to be set to a pull weight anywhere from 8 ounces to 2 pounds.

The Hit is machined using state-of-the-art technology, without metal injection molding or stamped metal parts. The trigger’s sear and trigger shoe are precision-machined, heat treated to 56 Rockwell hardness and features a black oxide trigger coating with a NP-3 plated sear for maximum lubricity. The Hit is backed by the legendary Timney No Hassle Lifetime Warranty  for a lifetime of reliable performance..

The Timney Hit trigger for the Remington 700 capitalizes on Timney’s years of experience building outstanding triggers for a wide variety of firearms. The Hit is available in straight and curved trigger shoe styles, with either a black or nickel-plated finish. MSRP on the black finish is $230.99 and the MSRP for the nickel-plated version is $236.99. More information is available at

Training yourself to shoot better is the result of developing a higher skill level upon which you may rely. The higher your skill level, the greater your odds of performing well when they are called upon. Greater skill is born from greater control; the greater the control, the better the performance.

Your Go-To Move

When it comes to a self-defense situation, most shooters think “Well, I’ll just shoot him!” Others may consider their personal “go-to” move to be a martial arts technique such as a finger strike to the eyes, bare-knuckle punch to the throat or kick to the groin.
