as the title says, i am having a rifle built off a Enfield P14 action and need a better trigger for it. can any of you guys recommend a new trigger?

i tried calling Timney but unfortunately they do not make one for the P14 action.

thank you

You might want to check with them again. Their website lists an Enfield trigger. westernfirearms.com.au list a timney trigger for the Enfield M17 & P14

if you read the fine print on that enfield trigger it says it only works on US made enfields. i called timney and confirmed this would not work on the P14 action.

They were all made on the Eastern seaboard of the USA. Try either Sinclair or Brownells ( who own them).

I checked de Haas' Bolt Action Rifles (2nd Ed.) and Dunlap's Gunsmithing. The former mentions trigger modification and the latter lumps in his description of trigger work with comments about Mausers and Springfield 1903s.

Interestingly, de Haas does not list the trigger as being different between the two rifles.

Mr. Hubel tells me he can modify the Timney trigger to work with the P-14 action. he said it takes some grinding but they will fit and function properly.

the fact that they are not drop in, is likely why Timney says they will not work.

I used the Timney for the p17, remington 30 in my p14 and it works just fine. If you don't remove the hump in the floor plate, they make a trigger for that too.
