I made the sore mistake of shooting a rifle with a jewell trigger.

Now I have bitten the bullet and ordered one.

All I can say is AMAZING. Nuff said.

My answer to this is. The only reason is to make the 7 RM look good. There is no other reason.

Yup. Once you get one, you won't be happy unless you have one on every rifle.

Re: I made the sore mistake of shooting a rifle with a jewell trigger.

I ordered one today. Delivery = 2 weeks.

I didn't know what I was doing and Jewell was helpful.

This one is going on a big boomer for some extra long range attempts.

Ended up ordering a Varmint w/bottom safety factory set to 2#.

I suppose that will be light enough for an ambush rifle. If not, I again suppose Kirby can tweak it.

All my rifles are Rem 700's as well. I've shot others with a rifle basix but no timney or jewell.. I've always been curious what makes them so much better? My rem is pretty nice at just over 2lbs.
