    I am looking at tweaking my 03-A3, specifically the trigger. So much has been said about the Timney, and while there are a handful of others out there, I was looking for some feedback from you guys here.
    Thanks in advance.

    Timney has a time-tested design used on Mausers and Springfields since the 1950's, and that is what I would go with if I were doing it.

    I have a Dayton Traister on my '17 Enfield and it is excellent.

    On the timney triggers, 03-A3

    Featherweight, featherweight deluxe, or sportsman? What do you understand the practical difference to be?

    Price, fitting, and safety. Sportsman is the basic unit with 2-4 pound adjustable trigger pull. Featherweight is a step up with more hand fitting done at the factory. 1&1/4 - 4 pound range. Featherweight deluxe is the top of the line and adds an integral safety (similar to a Remington 700 safety) to replace the original safety on the gun.

    Thanks. $90 is the best price I've found, SWFA, but they are out of stock...
