A number of years ago I replaced the trigger in my Rem 700 with a Timney trigger. Recently Remington replaced my burned-out barrel with a new one but upon receipt of the rifle, they did not replace the trigger. Probably because of liability concerns. In any event, I no longer have the instructions. I called Timney and they faxed me instructions but there is nothing visible regarding the placement of the bolt stop spring. Can anyone describe where it goes? Thanks!

I've replaced several 700 triggers. Hard for me to describe the spring's location in a post. If you could get a look at another 700 action, it'd be pretty obvious where the spring goes.

Thanks, I got it. I got a text that has blow-ups in it and I as able to piece it all together. Now if this damn rain would stop I can find out how good this new barrel is!

I'm going to have to replace a Remmy 700 varmint barrel that rusted out on me. What does Remington charge to replace a barrel? Did you just send the barreled action without the trigger assembly?

I sent the rifle, trigger assembly, bolt. Removed scope bases and rings.

Charge was $259 total. I had a bullet ogive-to-rifling distance of 0.8 inches in the old barrel. The new one driopped this to 0.06 inches.

Well, it looks like I'll be contacting Remington again anyway. Went to the range today to fire my "new" old rifle. Chambered a 130gr Hornady SST, gently squeezed my Timney trigger, and all I got was, "Click!" Tried 5 more rounds - 5 "clicks." Slight imprint on the primers - not deep enough to set them off.

Remington could not have test-fired it because they didn't want to put the Timney trigger back in.

So tomorrow - back to conversations with Remington.
