Remington 700 SPS Trigger Replacement
« on: February 25, 2020, 04:46:13 AM »
I've got a Remington 700 SPS with a stock trigger that I want to replace.  I bought a Timney trigger during a Christmas sale and my original intention was to replace the stock as well and have it professionally bedded.

It's now looking like the stock probably won't happen this year but I still want to replace the trigger.  If I don't alter the stock in any way and just replace the trigger, will I have any sort of bedding issues?  Is this a simple job at home where I remove it and torque it back down?

I don't remember which trigger I installed once on my R700, but I had to relieve  a little inside my stock so the safety and bolt release would function.

It is easy to do, so just install the trigger.  Watch a youtube video or two.  Brownells has some good videos too.

As already mentioned, it's a pretty easy task, but since you haven't ever done it before maybe take a few pics with your phone before you start that way you'll have a reference to look at if you get stuck or something does go right, but overall it's pretty straight forward.

I just installed one in my 700 and it was super easy.  Only thing i had to do was open up the slot a tiny bit due to the new trigger being slightly wider.  It was almost too easy and I had to double check i wasn't messing anything up.  Also there is a ton of videos showing how to do it.

That is not the only criteria.

I have 2 pins in my ankle, but I wouldn't let you change them.      :hello:

Here's my video installing a trigger tech. Same process. You can punch the front pin all the way out just make sure the rear one doesnt get punched all the way out to make your life easier.

Thanks for the replies!  I'm not concerned about the difficulty of replacing the trigger but more concerned about the after effects of removing and replacing the action/barrel on accuracy but it sounds like it wont be a problem.

I was looking at a mid range stock like a Bell and Carlson.

those cheap rem stocks are really easy to torque down wrong. I recommend bedding the recoil lug while you have it out of the stock. It makes on and off much more consistent.its insanely easy to do. Torque your action screws evenly and to factory specs and you'll be fine.
