I have a good bit of experience with both double an single set triggers and I absolutely love them. For precision shooting the are pretty much a dream.

CZ makes perhaps the best factory trigger I've ever fingered in their singe set triggers.

Like anything new they take some getting used to but once you do it's hard for it not to become a life long love affair.

Depends on how you set it. They are fully adjustable. When I kick the trigger forward into set mode, I have an 8oz trigger. About 3lbs without setting it and it's still a very smooth trigger in normal mode, just the longer pull.

Re: How much difference can a trigger make?

I'm might get a CZ 550. Are there manufacturers out there that make single set triggers for win 70, remington, savage, ruger #1, or mauser k-98? Similar to or better cz.

Thanks

I have no experience with them personally but they are out there.

Some require some modifications to your existing receiver and are "one way" changeovers as a result.

Kepplinger has a good reputation though, that much I do know.

SINGLE-SET TRIGGER | Brownells

There are a number of options available for the Mauser.

NECG Single Set Rifle Trigger Mauser 98

RRGUNS.US HOME

Canjar made some as well but I think they are out of business. You can find their trigger units still for sale though if you do some googling around.

Broke down and bought a Jewell. Installed it today. Holy crap are they nice. I can't wait to shoot it. Probably the best upgrade I could have ever made.

Let us know how you like it once you have a few rounds down range.
