Timney triggers vs Boyd Bold triggers? I expect to relieve the stock whichever trigger I get.

Any advice or opinions on which one to buy for a yugo mauser m48a?

I have a hard time from the websites telling which one will fit a m48a.

==========

I know Boyd's is a sponsor. I have trouble on their website figuring out this:

http://www.boydsgunstocks.com/MAUSER-PR ... /pr-98.htm
BOLD MAUSER PREMIUM 98 TRIGGER ASSEMBLY

This Trigger Is Designed To Function At 2.7 Lbs. Of Compression Pull. It May Be Set For 2 To 4 Lbs.

This Trigger Will Fit The 1909 Argentine, 1908 Brazilian, Browning Fn, Centurion Fn, 1910 Husqvarna, Magnum Fn, Musketeer, Parker Hale 1200, 98 Persian, 1909 & 1935 Peruvian, Santa Barbara, Sako, 1903 Turkish, And 1938 Turkish 8Mm

==========

I have trouble finding differences between Mauser Featherwight and Mauser Sportman on the Timney website.

http://www.timneytriggers.com/sunshop/c ... r-1-1.html

Mauser Sportman
Fits most bolt-action rifles built on Mauser, Springfield, or Enfield type actions. Fully adjustable, 2-4 pounds trigger pull weight. Light weight alloy housing. Machined and hardened steel working surfaces. Some stock inletting required.

Mauser Featherwight
Fits same rifles as the Sportsman, except the Enfield. Light weight alloy housing. Pull weight adjusts between 1 ½ - 3 ½ pounds. Working surfaces are EDM machined, hardened and polished. Some stock inletting required.

==========

I appreciate the help.

I think I found some more information.
http://www.sporterexpress.com/?p=mauser_98_standards

Key info at bottom:

============

Standard Mauser Information
So, how do you know what parts will fit which actions?

Since 1898 there have been some 100 Million Mauser rifles manufactured by different factories throughout the world.

The following are features of a standard Mauser 98 Large Ring Receiver:
• Front ring measures: 1.410 in.
• Center-to-center on the screws: 7.835 in.
• Receiver O.A.L.: 8.75 in.
• Barrel Shank: 1.10 in.

Some Common Large Ring Actions:
• Interarms Mark X
• Oberndorf
• VZ-24 or CZ-24
• 98/22
• K. Kale Turkish*
• DWM
• FN Commercial
• 1909 Argentine
• KAR 98

* This action is most commonly found as a standard Large Ring receiver with Small Ring threads. The barrel shank on a Small Ring is .980

The Yugoslavian M48 and M48A actions are intermediate length actions. Meaning they have a large ring threads but their center to center screw measurement is 7.620 which is shorter than standard length. You cannot use a standard large ring stock on these actions, however you can use most other standard large ring parts on these actions.

==========

you can use most other standard large ring parts on these actions. I am taking this to say that I can use standard bold/boyd or timney triggers on my m48a yugo.

I have had good success with the Bold triggers. Boyds always seems to have the best price even when Midway puts them on sale. Timneys are good but the Bold works every bit as well (IMO) & the price is more attractive. I like the side safety models - which do require a fair amount of inletting.

I put a bold trigger on a sporter 96 Swede I built and I like it very well. The trigger is crisp with no creep and I have it set at 2.5 pounds. I did have to inlet a lot into the right side of the stock to allow room for the slide safety but that was no big deal. For not much money it is a very good trigger.

I bought a Boyd Bold trigger, kind of on a whim just because
they are so cheap, for a K98 "sniper" build I was doing.

Damn thing breaks like a match trigger right at 1 pound
after adjusting down the engagement a little and lowering
the weight of pull. Rock solid reliable as well. Will not
drop with slamming the bolt or bumping the buttstock
on a cocked rifle.

I have bought one other one since, and it adjusted to an excellent
break too.

I was quite surprised. Haven't bought any Timney's lately.
That's what I have used in the past on mausers. But these
Boyd's are a very good trigger for the price.

The m48 mausers use the standard 98 mauser trigger group. So, if the trigger will fit the 98s, it will fit an m48.

I have a Timney Sportsman without safety on a Swede. There's a lot of adjusting to fine-tune the trigger. The trigger, itself, feels nice and is serrated. It's pretty much setup right out of the box. However, I had to shim my trigger housing because the bottom of the trigger would hit the housing. Once that was done, it is a nice trigger.

Here's the instructions for the Timney: http://www.timneytriggers.com/install.cfm

Read through it and it will give you some other things to look for.

I purchased a Boyd's Bold trigger from DM Premium Firearms.
Was about $33 with $5 ship for total of $38.

I 'relieved' or cut out the stock last nite and installed. Took photos of both triggers and stock before cut but forgot to photo stock after cut when installed.

Will create another thread to give newbies like me an idea of what is involved. Went to range and shot very well.

Did not make any modifciations to trigger. Just shot straight out of package. Is worth the money.

Thanks for you help!

Just for clarification - Bold makes the trigger. Boyd's is one place that sells them, among others.
