Timney Triggers Announces Ruger Precision Rifle Trigger

The Ruger Precision Rifle platform continues to get better and better. With its relatively easy barrel swap, compatibility with various modern sporting rifle handguards, AR-style safety, folding stock, etc, etc. etc, the platform has been making serious waves within the precision shooting world.

However, with its focus on aftermarket compatibility for accessories, the Ruger Precision Rifle was not quite aftermarket friendly for its core components including receivers, bolt, and perhaps most critically, the trigger. While the Ruger Precision Rifle trigger is generally called “pretty good” by most shooters and the media, there is always room for improvement, especially in precision rifles.

Having completed reverse-engineering and their own engineering, Timney Triggers has announced the release of their upcoming Ruger Precision Rifle trigger. Like most Timney products, the trigger comes pre-assembled in a pack. The new triggers are stated to be two-stag and fully adjustable, clocking in from 8 ounces to just a single pound from the folks at Timney. They further announced on Facebook that there will be two trigger bow options, a straight and a curved.

Pre-orders are being accepted (once has to call Timney at 623-223-1111 and ask for “Nate” – no relation to me). MSRP is tagged at $219.95. Tentative shipping date is late October, which with delays is still well before most hunting seasons and the winter holidays.

    Timney. I love you. You make triggers for everything in the world but the glorious AUG. Why???

    • Drew Coleman

      Market share and ROI would be my guess.

    • Richard Webb

      Because, depending on your perspective, the AUG is either perfect in every way, and so literally cannot be improved upon, or is iredeemably flawed and so not worth wasting a trigger on.

      • Julio

        A fine and witty flourish, but a decent trigger is actually the ONLY thing an AUG needs.

          FS2000 needs love too.

    An 8 ounce trigger pull? Holy crap.

      I have a cz550b varminter with a single set trigger. After adjusting it, the set trigger is about 9oz. Don’t know that I’d want to carry it through brush liek that, but it survives being dropped from waist hight and being mortared without tripping.

    What’s the bennifit behind a staight trigger?

    • ostiariusalpha

      It’s so that you can put your fingertip right on the end of the trigger blade for maximum leverage and fine control of the trigger break.

      And I thought I was the only person that was massively underwhelmed by the RPR…

  • Ed Forney

    I dont need no stinking precision Rifle trigger on my 57 year old Ruger ! It’s a nail driver.

  • Smedley54

    So the RPR is destined to become the 10/22 of long range rifles?

  • L. Roger Rich

    At least Mossberg is not including them in their lawsuit so fat.

  • Lee

    Man Ruger really hit a home run with their precision rifle… I’m so happy to see awesome companies making awesome aftermarket stuff for it.
