Timney HK MP5 trigger

Timney has been in the trigger game for almost 80 years and, when a gunmaker elects to sell a tricked-out model of their pistol or rifle complete with a semi-custom trigger, they often just go with Timney right off the bat. While they originally started making triggers for classic bolt guns such as Remington 700s, Winchester Model 70s, and Mauser 98s, today they make and sell thousands of trigger packs for Glocks, S&W M&Ps, and assorted black rifles every month.

And now, they are moving into the HK MP5 space with a two-stage (two-pound first stage, two-pound second stage) “no gunsmith required” drop-in trigger for semi-auto variants of the ubiquitous German room broom. The trigger housing is made from 6061 T6 aluminum and anodized black while the hammer is made from S7 tool steel that is then heat treated, and NP3 coated. Both the trigger shoe and disconnector have been machined from billet A2 tool steel, heat treated for durability, and carbo-nitride coated for an “effortlessly smooth feel.”

Timney says it is compatible with HK 91/93 and 94 type firearms and their clones using SEF/ Semi-Auto trigger packs and corresponding safety selector levers. However, it will not play nice with Ambi/Navy/FBI
trigger packs or .22 clones, as they are completely different internally.

The price is $379, suggested.
