Timney is well known for its precision manufacturing processes, durable materials, and innovative designs.


Two-stage triggers have two distinct phases of trigger pull. In the first stage, the trigger has a light pull with a small amount of resistance. In the second stage, the trigger requires a firmer pull to complete the firing sequence.


Single-stage triggers, have only one stage of trigger pull with a consistent level of resistance until the trigger breaks and the firearm fires.


Two-stage triggers are often favored for precision shooting and single-stage triggers favored for rapid fire applications.


Timney understands hunters and the thrill of the chase because they are hunters. They understand accuracy and the importance of making the shot. That is why they’ve been dedicated to making “The World’s Finest Triggers” since 1946.

Timney recommends using an alcohol based cleaner that evaporates easily. Ronsonol lighter fluid and Coleman White Gas both work well to remove dirt and debris and evaporate fully. Compressed air and the alcohol based cleaner are all that is necessary to keep your trigger clean.
