trigger work vs. new adjustable trigger

I'm working on my 270 WSM Rem 700. I would appreciate some advise on having the trigger worked on vs. replacing with an adjustable. If you are for replacement, which ones do you prefer?
Thanks

The average guy can replace the trigger spring and adjust it for about $20 for the spring kit and shipping , that would get you down to the 2lb range after that I'd just buy one , I like Riflebasix triggers for the money , they make several modles that range from heavier 1.5-4lb to light 2-6oz units ,they run around $100 for the light weight target models , but they are well worth it.

Shawn Carlock has a gun of mine right now and we had this discussion today, he said exactly what James J previously posted.

I just installed a jewell HVR on my Rem700P. Haven't fired it yet but it is sweet! Easy install, even easier to adjust.

Took me about 30 mins with a torx driver and a pin pusher.

You may want to look at Remington's new trigger. Word is it will fit 700's all the way back to the first models. mtmuley
