Waffen Ferkinghoff of Germany announced the distribution in Europe of the AR PCC line of aftermarket drop-in triggers, manufactured by Timney Triggers for pistol-caliber carbines and particularly apt for competition shooting
Timney Triggers is a well-known company headquartered in Phoenix (Arizona, USA) that engineers and manufactures aftermarket trigger groups for bolt-action and semi-automatic rifles and carbines, with a special focus on the most popular hunting, long-range shooting and modern sporting rifles.
What makes the Timney triggers so popular, especially in the United States, is their ease of installation: being fully contained in a lightweight, CNC-machined 6061-T6 aluminum chassis and using wire EDM cut components among others, they can be installed using original components from the firearm they're mounted on – such as pins and safeties – and require no gunsmithing for installation as they're pre-set from factory.
The high quality of single components and overall package of the Timney Triggers and the high performance level – with shooters reporting a fluid pull, a crisp release and hair reset, with no creep at all – makes them a solid favorite among hunters and competition shooters alike, and keeps them constantly among the top five best sellers in their category both in the US and abroad.
Among the products offered by Timney Triggers is the AR PCC line of aftermarket triggers conceived for PCCs, or Pistol-Caliber Carbines – these being long-barreled rifles and carbines, often patterned on popular modern sporting rifle designs, and feeding popular pistol caliber ammunition from popular handgun type magazines.
PCCs have been riding the crest of a booming wave for some time now, particularly among practical shooting enthusiasts and other competition shooters, since their long barrels – 16-inches in the US, 14.5 inches or less in Europe and elsewhere – allow them to get the best performance out of their ammunition without being too harsh on the shooter in terms of recoil and muzzle climb.
Timney AR PCC triggers are now available in Europe through Waffen Ferkinghoff of Germany, in a curved and flat shoe version, as well as in a single-stage 3lbs / 1.362 gram and a two-stage 2+2 lbs / 908+908 gram variant. Timney AR PCC triggers are all MIL-SPEC, and compatible with AR-15 based pistol-caliber carbines.
Despite the well-known practical and easy installation of all Timney triggers, Waffen Ferkinghoff recommends that users seek assistance from a qualified professional for installation. The weight is factory pre-set on all models and is not adjustable by users.
The Timney AR PCC single-stage triggers are sold in Europe by Waffen Ferkinghoff for 279.95€; the price for two-stage versions is set at 299.95€.
