Thinking about putting a trigger in my Winchester model seventy 308. The gun is about ten years old. What trigger would y'all recommend?

I have read that some people had trouble getting their timneys to fit right in their m 70

there are better triggers than timmey, for hunting it's good, the fit some times has to be tweaked, lifetime guarantee.

More often than not, a one pound trigger is an accident waiting to happen. On my target guns, around 2 pounds is about as light as I ever go.

On a hunting rifle, 2.5 pounds is my lower limit. Most are better off with three pounds.

Agree! 1lb is definitely an accident waiting to happen! You need it a minimum of 2lbs. If you ever hunt in cold weather and wear gloves you'd never feel that trigger when the rifle goes boom!

The only trigger I'd go lighter than 2 lbs on would be my .17 HMR. I have a single set trigger set at 1.5 lbs on it (just started shooting it today, BTW) and it is perfect for me. If it's a hunting rifle, I'd go minimum 2 lbs, I prefer 2.5 - 3 lbs.

YMMV.
