Hungry Timney Triggers

Someone I know bought one of those triggers for his Mauser and found out to install it required to remove a sizeable chunk of wood behind the trigger. I guess it is not a drop-in replacement, but how much weakening has that wood removal caused?

It's been my experience that all you really need to harvest a deer is a car. They come right through the windshield just fine. 357ross

Having installed a few of them myself, you don't have to carve out as much wood as you might think. You're going to have to remove a little because the housing takes up quite a bit more room than the original trigger mechanism, but not much and certainly not enough to weaken the stock.
Chance favors the prepared mind.

What he said....
Most aftermarket fiberglass 96/98 Mauser stocks will fit a Timney without any further inletting required,,,unless its one of those with a slide safety also.
