RiP!
You're still working on this project?!

Still can't give you any advice on BM. But Jewell triggers work just fine for field guns.

Talk the talk and walk the walk....

Hi Chas1!

I'm not exactly building a BR rifle. It's a tactical rifle just to fill ya in. With that said it's going to differ from BR a lot and hunting rifles a little. I have no experience with the Jewel trigger but looking at the actual trigger mechanism itself makes it look fragel. I have decided to go with either a Timney trigger. It's not really much different than a tuned up R700 really.

Hi Trebark!

Yes; I am still research'n lol! Funny I know. I figure I might as well use max time before I make a finalized decision on anything. I had a smith picked out and even had a lengthy talk on the phone with him until I researched some more and read some negative feedback. I'm glad I did my research.

Still looking
Cheers,
RiP
