I have a Winchester m70 varmint it has a bad trigger
the local gun smith will do a trigger job for 75$ or I can order a timney trigger for 58.95 from Natchez.
What is going to be better?
I'm thinking the timney but have no experince with them.
Or maybe gunsmith do a better job I dont know?

If your one to count your labor cost in the equation then you should be about the same cost as the gunsmith when your done. Most people don't put a dollar amount on their own time spent working on fun stuff.
I installed a Timney trigger on my 98 mauser a few years ago and it was a very easy job. Just follow the instructions to the letter and double check the all the settings and lock nuts before dropping it in the stock. Taking the time to get the length of pull and the poundage set to your exact taste is something you don't really get by letting the gunsmith do it. If you don't feel confident in your mechanical ability, then the extra 20 bucks gives you some more BS time as a paying customer at the gunshop. Tough to put a price on either choice.

What do you mean by "bad trigger"? The Win Mod 70's have one of the most simple, easy to adjust triggers. Can you describe the conditions that make it "bad"? Maybe we can save you a few bucks, eh?

I had mine adjusted down to 3 lbs and it is super smooth and crisp. Only cost $65 too. By "bad" do you just mean heavy pull?

The trigger was at 71/2 but I played with it a little and got it down to 31/2 very nice.
With MarinePMI saying it is one of the easiest triggers to
adjust I took a look at it and it is.
Thank's that saved me some money.
