Some folks may wonder why I allow Timney Triggers to sponsor the Empty Cases BLOG. (Advertisements are not sold for the Empty Cases BLOG, the company banners flown here represent companies I endorse. They make products I use – not just write about – and they sponsor the content of this BLOG.)
The first and longest running Empty Cases BLOG sponsor is Timney Triggers. This is appropriate because when it comes to guns, the trigger is the primary point of user interface. And, even though the title of this BLOG is EMPTY CASES, you make empty cases by pulling triggers.
Why do I use and suggest others use Timneys? Because they work, because they are easy to install and because they make more high quality, drop-in triggers for more different firearms than any other company. It’s also because – and I bet you did not know this – every trigger manufactured by Timney is installed on an action, adjusted and tested before it is shipped. Not just some, and not just sometimes; every single trigger.
Timney understands the importance of automated manufacturing but they also know the value real humans add. They know human hands will be installing it and that human fingers will be pulling it, so, it only makes sense to test that out before a trigger leaves Phoenix.
This is just one of the reasons that when me or many other people pull a good trigger you are apt to hear us say, “That feels like a Timney.”
I visited Timney’s shop just yesterday and asked Timney’s owner, John Vehr, if he knew that he manufactured the McMuffin of triggers?
John smiled and chuckled. Later on, riding up to Gunsite with NRA’s Shooting Illustrated Editor Adam Heggenstaller I realized I’d made a terrible mistake. Timenys are not the McMuffin of triggers, they are the Cadillac or maybe even the Audi of triggers.
Sorry John. Forgive me for the insult.
