I installed the trigger today and all I have to say (like the other person) is WOW! This thing is awesome!!! My OEM trigger screw (3mm to remove the oem trigger) had so much lock tight on it that that I stripped the screw. I pulled my other scorpion out and took it apart no problem. Put the new trigger in that one (to lift my spirits) before drilling out the stripped screw. The new trigger comes with a new trigger pack screw so I assume I’m not the first to have this problem. Drilled it out and installed new screw in that trigger pack. I’m trying to hold off buying a second Timney to put in my bigger scorpion but I don’t think that will last if I find them in stock tomorrow.

Wonder how much better the Timney is vs the lightened spring conversion or C polished version?

I have the HBI spring on my old trigger group and the Timney is much better. Someone else will have to join in on the polished springed.

Would you say lighter pull and smoother?

I love this trigger, but recently developed some issues.  I have about 2000 rounds through mine and it runs great unsuppressed.  My can was released from jail last week and I went and shot it last night with the suppressor.  This is where the problems started. 

I used my reloads, Federal HST and Speer Gold Dot.  Dead trigger several times throughout the mags, the hammer was following the bolt.  Occasionally the gun would double or triple.  Remove the suppressor and the gun works with no issues.

So I have removed the trigger and reinstalled my factory trigger pack that I polished and replaced the springs with HBI and it seems to run fine with that, but I will have to do more testing.  I have emailed Timney to see what they say, but I have not received a reply back yet. 

Anybody else have this trigger and run a suppressor?  This gun was built to run suppressed 100% of the time, so it is frustrating but hopefully Timney or I can figure something out.

Zen I am having a similar issue with dead trigger (hammer following the bolt?) and double/triple fire, however mine is unsupressed. Not sure if it has anything to do with it but the dead trigger happens only during rapid fire mostly with 124 & 147 gr bullet and the double/triple fire with hotter/lighter 115 gr; all factory ball ammo. Trigger is back at Timney for service.

Ordered one last week and I’m also having problems with the Timney trigger. Mine won’t reset consistently. It looks to me like the back end of the trigger bar is protruding too far past the end of the trigger assembly and it is being forced against the inside wall of the Scorpion’s trigger housing. I believe that pressure is keeping the trigger bar from dropping back down on release and won’t let the disconnector disengage from the hammer. If I push the trigger shoe forward it will reset, but it won’t do it on its own most of the time. I know someone who ordered one the day after I did and is having the same problem.  Sent a message to Timney through their website two days ago and sent an email today and have not received a response to either and can’t get a live person on the phone. Not super excited, at this point, which is disappointing because when the trigger works properly, it’s great.

Wow. Really sucks to read these posts. I had mine out on Monday and it preformed flawlessly. I only put about 50-60 rounds through it w/o a can. I have a liberty cosmic but did not try it that day. I won’t get back to the range until next weekend but I will test it w/ the can and report back.

I have the Timney trigger and it has run flawlessly for ~500 rounds with and without suppressor (Rugged Obsidian).  I've slowed down on my range time as I can't replace ammo...

Hopefully they can fix the issue as the trigger is pretty sweet.  I have had a few others tell me the same issues.  I have emailed and used the form on the website but haven’t heard back for a week.  Nobody answers the phone as well. I know it is busy so I guess I will just try again later.

Update on my situation with this trigger.  After not hearing back from the website form submission and not having a live person ever answer the phone, I tried an email to technical support and got a reply back the next day. At first, they hadn’t had reports of any issues, but over the course of several days of back and forth emails, phone calls and photos, more reports have popped up. Timney asked if I would be willing to send my trigger and the lower trigger housing to them, at their expense, so they could check and see what variations there might be between guns that are having issues vs. theirs. So far, the only trigger they had received back was working fine in their gun. Anyway, it’s on its way, so we’ll see what they find. So yes, things got off to a rough start, but once I figured out the best way to reach them (direct email, not the website form or phone) they’ve been great to deal with and hopefully they’ll get it figured out soon.

I continue to be sorry for those experiencing the challenges reported in this string.

I am very happy to report that I had my scorpion w/ the Timney trigger out at the range today suppressed and it continued to function flawlessly. After reading the posts in this thread I was very worried that my new trigger would have the same or similar problems.

With the Liberty Cosmic suppressor attached, I went through mag after mag without a single problem. I tried 4 different brands of 9mm Ammo including Federal bulk to 158gr subsonic.

Hopefully, Timney will be able to fix/adjust the problematic triggers mentioned in this thread so that the issues are resolved.

I will note that I have the trigger installed in an otherwise stock micro version; if that makes any difference.
