Timney AR Trigger Review

Timney AR trigger

Timney AR trigger

The Timney AR Trigger is a self contained unit for small pin AR platforms. This unit delivers a smooth, creep-free pull and crisp break that is much more like a bolt action hunting rifle than a factory AR. The Timney AR Trigger is a genuine drop-in fit with no gunsmithing required as all components are contained by an 6061 T-6 aluminium housing which is gold anodized. For wear and impact resistance the hammer is wire-EDM machined from S7 tool steel and Teflon-Nickel coated. A2 tool steel is used for other components, heat treated to Rc 56-60 for longevity in service and black oxide coated for corrosion protection. All engagement surfaces are polished to ensure a crisp, clean let-off. You install with your weapon’s existing trigger pins and a proprietary design ensures the pins are retained. There are three models available.
