Timney Rifle Basix or Jard for Savage 110

I have an older 110 in 270win with a terrible trigger. I have heard mixed things about all these triggers. I also read somewhere that with the rifle basix trigger the gun would still fire in the safe position if more than 9lbs of pressure was applied.

i would be using the trigger for hunting so anywhere between 2.5-3.5lbs would be okay. looking for cleanest and safest option.

also read on here where some guy will retrofit old savages w/ accutrigger for $50 but i am not sure it would be as good as aftermarket.

any help would be appreciated.

thanks in advance

i can only speak for the Timney. simple swap, three position safety, 2.5 lbs & i think it's perfect. mine is in a Vanguard though. i would think the Savage would be the same in quality.

I would do the timney the 2lbs sounds like a good deal for hunting

Myself I like the Match at about 7 ounce .... My new build will have a SSS Evolution @ 4 ounce or the Rifle Basix II @ 4 or 5 ounce
It does not take a majority to prevail, but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men....

I've put Rifle Basix and Timney triggers in Savages, and have been very happy with both. Under 3 lb, nice clean break, big accuracy improvement. Never tried to put 9 lb on one with the safety on; in fact, I can't even think of a reason to try that. If you deliberately try to break a safety system on a rifle, you'll succeed a lot of the time.

thanks for all the replies and advice.

i am leaning towards a timney or accutrigger retrofit. just not sold on which would be better.

also going to get a thumbhole stock to replace the stock junker.

Don't Timney and Jard make parts for each other?
When all is said and done, there is a lot more said than done.
