    So I can have foundation stocks inlet for my M7 mausingfield, but now I need a trigger that will work with it. I was thinking if a bix n andy marksman trigger. I know the price and how expensive it is but I’m wanting my dream rifle with a good trigger. Will it work with my action and a Hawkins M5 LA DBM? And which safety do I choose? Top right?

    With the Bix’n Andy triggers, make sure you talk to someone about the sear and tuning it. I’ve been looking at getting one for my tikka once the Dakota is released for the Tikka sometime in the next month, and as I did some research, a number of guys on Snipershide were mentioning how the trigger was affecting bolt lift. If you select the right height sear from Bix’n Andy, you’ll love it. If you get the wrong one, you’ll think it’s not so great.

    Take a look at their models too. The old ones were for benchrest only, and get clogged with dust, etc. easily, whereas the Tac Sport Pro and Dakota triggers are more closed in their design and lend themselves to better performance in dust, wind, rain, etc.

    Mausingfields generally take a Low sear for a Bix. If you have your action it’s pretty easy to measure that. Bullet Central has some videos.

    Unless you are shoot benchrest I would look at one of the sealed models. The TacSport Pro is the best bet for general shooting, PRS shooting, and reliability.

    It will work in your rifle. Your set up is close to mine but a M5 Mausingfield.
