    I received my Timney Trigger for my Howa 22-250 last week and made it out to the range. Talk about an investment. I had messed with the factory trigger on the Howa but just couldn't get it to where I liked it and have the safety work. The Timney came from the factory at 3 lbs and is easily adjustable. Has a crisp clean break with no creep whatsoever. Have to give this trigger a thumbs up for ease of installation and it does what it is suppose to all for less than $100.00, which is a small price to pay to me for the difference it makes in accuracy.

    fish I love work. I can watch it all day.

    Do they make trigger assemblys for a TC Encore ??? That is the only change I would make for that gun. Also, do they have a web site ??? I'd google it myself but it is Sunday and I never work on Sundays.:rotfl: :rotfl::rotfl:

    BTW I have a Howa in the .243 cal. Sweet gun. :cheers:

    You might ask Savage. Two and one half may be the limit.

    igor, it sounds like you got the wrong spring in your M12. The varmint rifles should come with a lighter poundage spring than the sporter models. You should be able to get to about a pound and a half. Savage can send you the other spring. If that's not good enough, go with a SharpShooter Supply trigger (SSS) about $90. I've had several of them in various rat rifles, and they'd get to 14 oz. pretty easy (had one go WAY lighter, but it was hard to use that way). SSS and Rifle Basix, and Timney, all make custom triggers for Savages. My .204 is down to the minimum, and it's sweeeeeeeet.....

    a buddy of mine has two model 12's the first one (an early one) adjusted down to a little
    over a pound, the second one he bought about the same time i bought mine, and it
    won't go below 2 1/2.
    called savage they won't help.
    I took the adjustable spring OUT of mine and it still pulled 1 1/2, I'm going to polish the
    sear next, hope it helps it looks pretty rough under magnification.
    just so everyone knows that dang savage will SHOOOT.:cool:

    Don't polish the sear too much, they are only surface hardened, if you cut thru that, you'll get mush, and it won't be safe, either. Baby steps, friend!

    if that doesn't work i'll buy a new trigger its not worth the time to make a new sear
    and trigger.
