And the shelling out of a $100 bill. And BTW, in addition to the Allen wrench, you also need a wrench to loosen and tighten the jam nut on the Timney.

If I might want to change the pull-weight in the future I get a Rifle Basix replacement, but if I don't plan on ever changing it tweaking the 452 trigger suits me just fine.
While I use Timney triggers on all of my custom Mauser prohects, in this case it didn't allow the low trigger weight that this modification does. By keeping the adjusment nut on the spring, I can adjust my trigger pull from 8oz to just under 2# (30oz) with a simple turn of a 1/4" open end wrench.

One of my pet peeves with the Timney triggers on my Mausers is that it is hard to maintain a given adjustment when the lock nut it tightened. This is especially difficult with sear engagement and over-travel.
