Thread: Howa replacement trigger

  1. #1

    Howa replacement trigger

    Interested to hear from other HOWA users their experience with replacement triggers.

    would like to hear which is the best trigger on the market and what price range the after market triggers go for?.

    thanks in advance.

    I had the older style Howa factory trigger and i decided to replace it with a Timney, a bit sceptical at first about its performance but now i'm using the gun more down the range i have been very happy with its performance, crisp and clean pull, just wish i could get it a little lighter...

    Thanks,

    I have looked at 2 triggers the Timney and Basix, but unsure of the advantages disadvantages of each!.

    anyone had any experience of either.

    I had a Timney fitted in a Ruger 77 Mk1V ----- Very very good trigger. BUT Wood had to be removed from the stock to make room for it & the cost of new Timneys is about the same as getting someone who really knows trigger tuning/fettling to sort out the factory one --- Saying that I cannot comment on the suitability of your factory trigger as a good starting point.

    Have fun! Ian

    thanks for the heads up on the extra work involved, I shall certainly keep that in mind.

    looking for an easy fix tbh and one that's not going to cause extra work.

    I looked into this a few years ago when I bought a new new Howa. At that time the replacement triggers only had 2 position safeties. I like the standard three way safety, so I didn't go ahead. I don't know whether the current versions are different.

    It turns out the standard trigger quickly smoothed up, and was easy to adjust a little lighter. There is still some tiny creep, but I daresay that could be fixed with some stoneing.

    I spoke with Mike Norris last year and his advice was to keep the standard trigger, if necessary he can work on them.

    This is the old style trigger.

    The new version seems quite acceptable, based on ones I have tried in a shop. But Mike advised that it was less amenable to further tuning. Perhaps a replacement would be the best approach if you have one of these.

    thanks for the links.

    pretty frightening to hear the reviews on the safety catches not working on some!.

    i think I would be interested in the basix 3 way safety, but will continue to investigate.

    cheers
