What Is This Trigger?
      #297214 - 17/03/17 05:24 AM

Any ideas? On a MS reworked as a .243 bench rifle. Not mine.

Looks like a standard Timmney or Parker Hale for a Mauser-like action.

They were VERY adjustable and good triggers. Still have a bunch, all but one, in use.

I was wondering but wasn't sure if it'd been put in a new casing or something. I've got nothing to compare it to. Makes me wonder if I could use a normal double-set Mauser trigger.

A double set Mauser trigger uses a modified lever/sear in place of the trigger mechanism you see in your picture. The DS trigger plate is normally attached to the floor plate, is it not?
This is so the flipping rear trigger bar, when fired, arcs up and hits the pivoting sear, releasing the firing pin.

I think that is how they work - a slightly more complicated design of a muzzleloading DS trigger.

For sure but if the sear is fairly similar it'd be simple enough to mill out the trigger guard. The biggest issue would be the rear tang distance as in my limited experience if the guard is too close it doesn't work.
