Re: Jewell trigger?

I have several Jewels, and have never had an issue with them.
But don't consider for a second that Jewel is the 'best' trigger.
That is really subjective to what you like in a trigger.

I find the extremely short travel of Jewels is causing me to jab at them, rather than squeeze. Well, there is no squeezing my BR model Jewels -without specific focus in that regard.
Travel to release is in the thousandths(imperceptible). So it is diffcult to go from a jewel on one gun, to anything else on another.
Except 2-stage triggers

I prefer the Anschütz 5018 two stage trigger over Jewel. They are perfect IMO.
Every kind of adjustment there is, including trigger shoe angles. And custom shoes are a nice option, as we all experience shooting differently. That release is unique for each of us.
Trying to get hangers made to put these on BAT actions..

Anyway, there is nothing to fear in Jewels. They are worth the money.

Re: Jewell trigger?

In my opinion if you want a trigger between 1oz and 1lb you cant go wrong with a jewell. But for a true hunting rifle where a 1-1/4lb to 2-1/2lb trigger is wanted i feel a jewell is a waste of money. I recently got a jewell trigger with safety and tried all springs and adjustments and i thought it was horrible. I traded it back in for a factory x-trigger (stoned/polished and tuned) and like it MUCH better.

PS Mike 24oz is 1-1/2lb not 1-1/4lb.

Re: Jewell trigger?

true. That's what I get for trying to cypher. My triggers are set at 1 pound, 4 ounces (20 ozs). I personally couldn't stand the X-mark trigger... I guess it's a personal preference thing

Re: Jewell trigger?

I prefer Jewell and haven't had any problems. As others have mentioned what one feels is best is a personal thing...some love them and some wouldn't have one. For hunting I wouldn't go much under a 1.5 lb pull but, then again that's a personal preference. Let us know what you decide and how you like it. Enjoy.

Being from New Zealand could someone please let me know Jewell Triggers contact details as I need a decent trigger for my new Ruger Hawkeye Predator that is crisp without creep.

Re: Jewell trigger?

They don't have a website.

Jewell Triggers, Inc
3620 N. State Highway 123
San Marcos, TX 78666
(512) 353-2999

I bought 2 of the 3 that I have directly from them but it's only a 90 mile drive for me. I bought the first one from Midway, USA.

I don't think they make them for Ruger's. Just Remington 700 actions and AR's from what I remember.

Re: Jewell trigger?

There is one major problem with the jewell trigger; Once you buy one you will want to
replace every other trigger you have.

I use and like older remington 40x triggers,Shillien,timney and kanjar but the Jewell is the best in
my opinion.

You get what you pay for.
