Hi,

Looking for a new trikker for my mauser 98. Can anybody recommend one speciel?? I only know of timney and Bold Optima triggers. It has to be without safety, because I am keeping the old one mounted on the bold-action.

Where can I buy them? (E-shopping- international nessesary, because I live in Denmark).

thanks,

Lars Beck Jensen

by the way - took out a nice roe-buck yesterday

Look at www.Brownells.com

This topic is also covered in Gun wreckers, a couple topics up from Technical Tips.

I'm sure Brownells ships internationally. I've bought from them and their good people. In fact I bought a couple Timney triggers from them, one was for a M98 with the safety, I also bought a bolt shroud from them to remove the original M98 bolt safety. Someday I'll get back to that project and finish it.

I would highly recommend a Timney. I have installed 2 in sporterized Mauser actions without any problems. However, I am trying to get a Optima to work in a Swede 96 and it is a bear. A lot of whittling needed on the triggerguard and the stock (has a side safety). When I finished, I found out the trigger sear is stuck too high and will not work.

Stick with Timney, a lot better.

I'm sorry, but I know nothing about Bold Optima. However, Timney has been around for years, is quite innovative with thousands of satisfied customers, and produces triggers for almost any rifle you can think of. Best wishes.

I have a Rem700 for prairie doggin', where the trigger means a lot. The original, even given Rem's rep for triggers was horrid. I put in a Timney, and it immediately became my favorite varmint rifle. Like, within a couple shots. It's that good, and that was out of the box, no adjustment at all. If you fiddled with it, it could be even better, but I didn't feel like I needed to.

LARS

I HAVE TIMNEY TRIGGERS INSTALLED ON 5 MAUSER 98'S. THEY ARE THE FEATHER WEIGHT TRIGGERS. THEY ARE THE BEST. I TRIED BRAND X AND WAS NOT SATISFIED.

THEY CAN BE ADJUSTED DOWN TO 1 1/2 LBS. GREAT FOR LONG RANGE SHOOTING.

GOOD LUCK, BILL

Over the years I've installed probably about 20 Timney triggers, probably a half dozen Jewell triggers, and another dozen assorted Dayton-Traister and Moyer and such...and recently I've installed a couple of Rifle Basix triggers. They are all very good, but I gotta tell you...for the money, the Rifle Basix triggers are as good as any with the exception of the Jewell triggers. Jewell is my favorite.

I have the Bolt optima on my 98 mauser, and it is the best trigger I have ever used. I would highly recommend it.

Lars. I use strictly Timney triggers. Assuming(I know about assume) you have a standard type Mauser, the number for the Timney trigger without safety is SP M98FN. This is the one I use. I have them on several very expensive custom rifles and I'm very satisfied with them.

I only have experience with Timney and Jewel. Like them both and for no particularly good reason I prefer the Timney.........could just be I have used them longer and on more rifles.

Let no good deed go unpunished.
