Field & Stream has just announced that the Timney 870 Trigger Fix has been awarded the Best of the Best for 2010. In case you’re not familiar with the Timney 870 Trigger Fix it will transform a heavy and creepy 870 shotgun trigger into a crisp breaking rifle-like trigger in about five minutes. VIDEO HERE (scroll down).
Its a big deal for a product to be recognized as Best of the Best by Field & Stream. Partly because they let their expert testers subject the products in contention to a rigorous evaluation process, and partly because the recognition of winning means your product works and that there is a need for it in the marketplace.
I was involved with the 870 Trigger Fix project early on. I didn’t contribute anything to the development, design and testing process, mostly because I am not an engineer or even a shotgun shooter. (Timney has well qualified folks for things like that.) I did suggest the name “870 Trigger Fix” at the outset of the project. The name stuck.
So, does that make me famous, smart or just proud of myself?
Regardless, If I had an 870 I’d give it a FIX like this and I would put it in myself because its, well, and easy FIX.
