Trigger ID Help Wanted

Can anyone ID this trigger ? ? It was fitted to an FN Commercial action by the AMU @ Ft. Benning in 1967. I don't believe it was fab'd in house. Although this trigger looks like a Timney or a Shilen, it is neither (according to their archives). Instead of mounting in the traditional manner by a pin through the ears of the receiver, it mounts with screws. Thanks in advance......

Joe I don,t work on modern rifles other than stock them sometimes. Most of my really good gun gunsmith pards have passed away. There are a few south of me that work on Mausers old school sporters. Next time I go down I will take the picture of your trigger group. I like the Mod 70 winchester,but here in ohio we can,t hunt them for deer. We gray hairs are thinning out.

Joe:

Google Canjar and see if it is one of theirs. They were pretty popular back then. It could also be a commercial FN model - the commercial FN Mauser actions used a variety of triggers, including those on the Safari Grade Brownings made from '59 to '74 and the host of proprietary Mausers made for Sears, Wards, and so on. The base guns had two piece non adjustable triggers (Sears Model 50) but the higher grade ones had upgraded triggers. Sorry I can't do any better than that. It looks a little like the ones used in the Mark X Mausers from Yugoslavia in the 70's and 80's, but the time element is wrong.

You're welcome, Joe.

Hey, also try Parker-Hale. They made some really neat Mauser sporters in the 50's, and you might also google Herter's U9 or J9. They were popular do-it-yourself kit guns, one a Mauser and one a BSA and I can't recall which is which. My rusty memory banks suggest the U9 was a Mauser.

I hate to be discouraging, but everybody and their dogs were producing Mauser sporters in the 60's and 70's, Weatherby even started his line of rifles with the Mauser action. So I think you might be up against a trigger made by some obscure company that made a limited run of them for one of these cookie-cutter Mauser sporter makers. If so, I doubt that you can identify it. I've never seen a Mauser trigger that even barely resembles the one in my Safari Grade Browning otsix made in '64, and this is the kind of thing I'm talking about. Best of luck and let us know what you find out.

I looked at the only trigger I have on hand here and yours does not appear to be a Canjar, at least the vintage/model I have.

Can't quite make out something in the side that looks like a lockring.

In general the competition triggers weren't fitted with safeties.


Regards,

Pat
