I just wanted to give a positive shout out to my new Timney trigger for my also new SCAR 17S. After seeing how much fun guys on YouTube were having with their SCARs, and not having a "plinking" .308, I decided to purchase a SCAR 17S. The one disappointment I found upon receiving the rifle was the abysmal trigger action the gun had. I come from the world of service rifle high-power competition. I have always loved my Geissele two stage trigger, as well as other aftermarket AR triggerjobs. By comparison, the SCAR had a scratchy creepy trigger that would be totally unacceptable for precession target work. Maybe acceptable for a battle rifle (just barely), but sub standard for a $3000 rifle mostly shot at the range for fun. So the search was on for a suitable replacement. Of course a little searching produced the fact that Geissele made a trigger in the $400 range. I was never able to find one to purchase, so that ended the matter until I found out that Timney trigger produced a drop in trigger which also had the positive quality of being available for purchase for less than $300.
It is quite simply a real "drop in" trigger. The only problem is that it ships with a part not accounted for in the included instructions, a thin trigger floor plate that is installed in the trigger housing before the Timney trigger is dropped in. A quick e-mail to Timney confirmed that that is where the part is supposed to go. Now I have a great trigger to go with a great gun. While the Timney trigger is a single action trigger (there is no take up before it disengages the sear, unlike older military triggers such as the M1 or M1A triggers which have some take up before hitting the sear release point in the trigger pull) it is worlds better than the stock trigger.
I have no connection to Timney trigger company, just a guy who found a neat product for this cool rifle and wanted to share it with other enthusiasts.
PS: I have a nice Tactical Link single point bungee sling, a Trijicon 6x48 .308 BDC scope and GG&G XDS bipod on my SCAR 17S.
