Dating my remington 700
Timney Trigger experts at our Phoenix, Arizona plant hand-test every trigger in its intended action and then set the pull weight at our factory standard, 3 lbs.
If you prefer a different pull weight you simply select it from the drop down above and your Timney Trigger will be customized to your preference.
For example, in the mid-1980s, Remington implemented some minor design updates to the action on 12ga 870s, including a "U"-shaped cut-out in the shell carrier that prevented a certain type of malfunction from binding the gun's action.
If your 870 is a 12ga, and you're trying to figure out whether it was made in 1978 or 1996 (which are on opposite sides of the '80s), your shell carrier will give you a strong clue.
