    Coming soon - M70 style triggers for M98 Mausers - made in Alaska on CNC equipment by a former member of the American Custom Gunmakers Guild. Alaska Arms LLC

    Default interesting!

    The Mdl 70 style trigger would also most likely require a new or modified cocking piece.

    I wish someone would also pick up and make the canjar single set triggers for mauser and other rifles.

    I have a Canjar on my .500 A-Square. The wide trigger shoe is sooooo comfortable, and at three pounds un-set, you really do not feel like you are actually putting three pounds on the trigger due to the area of the shoe. A very nice trigger. An excellent idea too.

    What do you all think of the Timney Sportsman trigger? I am thinking of putting one on my 7x57mm 98 Mauser custom I am having built.

    Never having used one, I don't know, but am sure it will work perfectly as I've never heard of anyone having problems with the Timney triggers.

    New England Custom Gun carries a Canjar-style trigger for the Mauser, but it doesn't seem to be as clean a profile as Canjar.

    That is good news if it is the "old style" Mod. 70 trigger. If it is I hope they also make one for the "new Mod. 70"s".

    I would hold out and try one of the new Winchester style. Keep it local...

    I put one on my Mauser this summer. I like it. The only bolt action rifle I own that doesn't have a Timney trigger is a CZ.

    I've got Timney's on all my Mausers and my M77 Ruger (Tang safety). They do a great job.

    For the OP, why is the maker a "former" member of the ACGG? Didn't know they kicked people out.

    I've used nothing but Timneys on my Mausers with the exception of a Blackburn on one. A mod. 70 style on a Mauser? looking to see the works.....post pics please.
