Stainless Anschutz Trigger Hanger for Remington

Post by KidCulpepper » Wed Aug 08, 2012 12:28 pm

I understand that someone is making or has made stainless steel trigger hangers that allow Anschutz 5018/5022 triggers to be mounted on a Remington 700/40X action. I assume they are similar in design to the Briley hangers but are made of steel rather than aluminum. If this is the case, does anyone know where I can get one? I have a trigger that has been modified to work with the Briley adapter (the "ears" for the mounting screws have been milled off) but understand that the aluminum wears out and eventually causes failure to fire and would like to avoid that situation if at all possible...

Thanks,
Stephen

Does this adapter make milling of the receiver itself a non-issue when putting a 5018 trigger on a Rem 700? From what I understand you would usually have to have some work done on the receiver to get the trigger hung on a 700. If this adapter would solve that and allow for a virtual drop in that is something I would definitely be interested in someday myself. Let us know what you find out Kid.

Dee,

The Briley adapter allows a 5018/22 to be installed without modification to the receiver. The one I have is for a Remington but they also make one that fits Winchester M70s (pretty sure that one does not require receiver mod either). It does require that you mill or file the mounting screw holes off the front and rear of the trigger so you are pretty much committing the trigger to this setup at that point. Also, the Anschutz trigger is much larger and with the adapter in place, hangs down lower than a standard Remington or aftermarket equivalent so if you plan to install it on a gun that was originally inletted for a standard trigger, the stock will need some additional milling.

What about the sear? Doesn't it need to stick up higher than a normal one?

rug7722,

The Briley hanger includes a transfer bar that allows an Anschutz trigger to operate with a Remington (or Winchester) action. The trigger sear contacts the transfer bar and transfer bar contacts firing pin so no direct contact between sear and firing pin. This allows the mechanism to operate with an unmodified sear or firing pin.

I noticed though that if you're going to put one on a true 700 you need to buy the bolt release as well. So ad another $10. Just snarking. It's cool to have a new player equipment wise. It's be cool to see if any show up at nationals this year.

At $50 more than an 5018 I'm wondering how many will drink the cool aid. :ymcowboy:

I have dry fired both the Huber trigger and David's trigger. Both are "drop in" replacements for a Remington pattern triggers. They probably require minor relief of the stock for clearance.

I can not give a long term report on how they hold settings. There are others who will be able to do that in time. My estimation is that they should hold up well based upon their materials and manufacturing processes.

I think each of them is the equal of the Anschutz trigger. I give the edge to David's trigger though I think the Huber is a fine trigger. I say this as one who has used Anschutz triggers on smallbore rifles and a variety of them on high power rifles. Before the Anschutz adaptations, I used a two stage trigger (can't recall the name right now), the Jewell "two stage" (it isn't really), an adapter for an Anschutz trigger before the Briley which led to the Briley, the Briley, and had a pair of 700 actions machined to directly take an Anschutz trigger.

Today I would not recommend any of the Anschutz alternatives on a high power rifle for several reasons. If you ever have a trigger problem at a match you are out of luck with the Anschutz unless you have an exact spare with you. The odds of someone else having an Anschutz trigger setup exactly identical to yours are slim to none. On the other hand, even if you aren't carrying a spare, some kind soul probably will have one.

Now for the real reason. Why bother with all of this when the Anschutz trigger itself cost pretty close to what the other two cast and then there is the expense of the adapters or machine work. The actions I had modified are forever dedicated to Anschutz triggers. There is no turning back for them. While I am happy with my equipment the way it is, I would not make the same choice today given the alternatives.

My suggestion is to try someone's rifle with one of these new triggers before deciding. You just might be surprised.
