Not long ago TFB was offered the chance to go on a media tour of several manufacturing facilities in the Phoenix area over a three day period. When Phil called me about it I quickly jumped at the chance, after all, who doesn’t love learning how much love goes into a product. We will have several posts covering the tours and a range day where we got a chance to shoot past 1100 yards!
While at the Timney Triggers facility we met with the trigger designer, Calvin. You might make a connection between the name and the “Calvin Elite” series of triggers if you are a Timney fan. The new trigger is the latest in the line of high-end competition triggers, this time it is a drop in unit geared towards 3-gun shooters.
Calvin tossed everything at the new design, including the kitchen sink and an interchageable trigger shoe that can be canted to the user’s preferance as well as moved up and down the shaft to sit in the best position for speed. On top of that users will be provided 4 options for trigger shoes, a traditional curved shoe, one flat, one L-shaped, and one knurled bar.
Pull weight is a scant 1.5 pounds and will feature a single stage design. No word on release date, the trigger we were shown was a prototype. Soon they will be Beta testing the trigger once Calvin gets it to the point where he feels it is good to go. After the Beta they will hammer out the release details. Since it is a prototype no word on price either, but I imagine it will fall around where the current AR lineup sits.
