Re: jewell trigger

I have tuned many Remington and Winchester triggers down to 1 lb.
I installed a Jewell hunting trigger on my 6x284 VLS and I would not take it off - Period!
I have had Rifle Basix and Shilen but neither compare to Jewell and I'm one of the biggest tight wads around.
David Tubbs "Tubb 2000 Tactical Rifle" (If I ever Get Rich I'm Going To Buy One) has an Anschutz competition trigger on the right hand models and a Jewell stainless on the left hand model. Good recommendation.
I have not tried the Anschutz - yet.
Buy the best your pocketbook will allow.

Re: jewell trigger

Love Jewells on by BR and LR guns.

However, for a carry hunting type LR gun, a reworked Remington is much cheaper and perfectly adequate. Rework can be from $35-50, take it down to 1.5 - 2 lbs but crisp and clean. Crisp and clean mean much more than light weight.

Neil Jones is one of the best www.neiljones.com and offers one of the best custom dies.

Re: jewell trigger

You might also look at Georgia Precision they to carry them for $199 link is below.

I too like my rifles and shotguns set between that 1 - 1 1/2# but closer to the 1# if possible but it normally depends on how cheep I want to be for that firearm. All in what you like or are use to.

FYI there are many ways to get your Rem to break crisp & cleanly at 1 1/2# or more pounds without the $200 price tag. I find that I enjoy things more when I decide to get something rather than let others influence me into things which I might have otherwise not got.

Good Luck and Have FUN,

Re: jewell trigger

Everyone makes good points on this one. Here goes my .02. The jewell is by far the best I have used which includes timmney triggers. The factory remington triggers are ususally great triggers however sometimes you will have to do a trigger job to get them satisfactory. I personally have never had a jewell fail like brass bender said I also use mine to hunt regularly. I recomend deciding if you want to spend 200 bucks on it now or 50 bucks getting a good trigger job. If you want to go ahead and spend the money now for the jewell I can assure you you will not be disapointed with it. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img] Like another said you will become spoiled with a jewell trigger and may not ever be satisfied by another brand on future rifles. Bottom line is the jewell is a very high quality piece of work and worth the price if you decide to go that route. If you want to look at some reviews go to www.midwayusa.com and look under gun parts then find triggers for your model and check out some of the reviews by other people who own them. That about raps it up for now hope that helps!
Guns and ammo, what more do we need?

Re: jewell trigger

Chris, any of you guys.. i came across some replacement parts for Remmy 700 triggers in a Brownells new products flyer, the parts replaced the 3 Remmy parts with 2 parts, any one experience with these?
My thinking is that the standard Remington trigger is a well designed unit that unbfortunately is constrained by budgeting on materials. If the actual trigger lever was made of 1 piece hardened stainless tool steel as apposed to 1 piece or hardened steel sat on top/infront of the trigger lever then i could see the thing bieng greatly improved.
