Re: jewell trigger

...can tell you firsthand, you'll never regret a Jewell trigger... Bruno's is among the cheapest place to buy that I know of, but would be happy if someone knows another place cheaper... should be slightly above $200, if you get the safety and bolt release... this should be standard equipment on any Rem you're serious about accuracy with... of course, some will say "save your money", the Rem can be adjusted etc... I'll let you wrestle with that one... hope this helps...Larry

Re: jewell trigger

I have installed hundreds of Jewels. With that said they belong on target rifles not hunting rifles. They are made so well and to very tight tolerances that I have seen them fail many times with the slightest bit of dirt from real world hunting situations. I can easily get a factory Rem trigger down to 1 1/2 lbs which is lighter than most people like for hunting rifles.
The Jewell will run about $200 and a good trigger job $50.

Re: jewell trigger

I don't dispute Mr. Mathewes experiences, but between myself, family and friends we have four rifles with Jewell triggers that are used every year deer and elk hunting - not one instance of failure. We all love the triggers. On the other hand, I have personally had a Remington trigger fail once while attempting to shoot a spike elk. All of this is antidotal, so take it for what it is worth, but in my experience the Jewell triggers are real gems.

Re: jewell trigger

You can split the difference with a Rifle Basix. This is the trigger that Dave Gentry recommends with his safety conversion. I've used several and had good luck. Different models and weights for different uses. Brownell carries them.

Re: jewell trigger

Jewell makes one of the best triggers in this world. I would not want it to be under a 2 1/2lbs pull for safety sake for hunting. If you will follow the manufactors recommandations and clean with lighter fluid, I've never had a problem with Mr. Jewell's triggers. Just do not take it apart to clean, just juice from the openings and let set to dry. Lester Bruno does have good prices on Jewell triggers. I warn you that the use of a Jewell trigger will spoil you!
