Here's another vote for Timney. Just ordered my seventh one. I don't own a Jewell but I'm sure they are excellent.

I have adjusted close to 200 of the original Remington triggers and they can be made better than a Timney.

And I have adjusted 14 of the new X-Pro triggers - all of them between 24 and 28 ounces - they break clean and are a great improvement over the original Rem trigger.

I have four Jewells and they are outstanding, but probably more then most shooters need for field rifles.

The remington trigger is one of the best factory triggers
ever made!!

I personally have never found one that if properly adjusted
that didn't feel as good as the after market triggers.

I knew a benchrest shooter that preferred them on all but
his unlimited rifles set at 1 to 2 oz.

Dont get me wrong I like both the timney and the Jewell
and recommend them if the client doesn't feel comfortable
with a Remington trigger.

A trigger that breaks clean and cannot be anticipated is what
you want ,So it doesn't have to be an after market trigger unless
it makes you more confident then it is a must.

The only time that I automatically replace a Remingtion trigger
is when it has the non adjustable one.

All adjustable triggers have a proper way to be adjusted if you
are not sure that you can do it right then have some one do it
that knows how and you will avoid problems,

The trigger is only one part of the total shooting system but just
as important as all of the other parts.

Here is a thought for you. Buy the jewell and have it installed. Keep the factory trigger and if the gun gets sold, then removed the jewell and use it again or sell it.

If you have your original trigger tuned, then you still have a factory trigger.

my 2 cents.

Note: If you ever get one, you will find that it is like side focus scopes..... It gets hard to live without them once you have dipped your toe into those wates.
