Jewell Triggers?

I'v been thinking about upgrading to a jewell trigger. It seems like most everyone agrees that they are the best from what iv read. My only problem is iv heard that if they get dirty or dust inside of them they go haywire. Has anyone had this experience? Right now my gun has the rem x-mark trigger in it and I think its right around 2.5-3lbs. and breaks clean with no creep but iv just heard that the jewell is outstanding compared to the others. What do you guys think?

Re: Jewell Triggers?

Yes I have had it happen. The trigger was on it's second day of shooting. I had gotten cleaning solvent in it while breaking in the barrel. It even fired one on bolt lift. They are great but they need to be cleaned. Jewell recommends removing the trigger and cleaning it every time you clean your rifle.

Re: Jewell Triggers?

Are they all stainless parts and are they worth the extra work?

All models are made from a satin finish stainless steel. Are they worth the extra work? I and I guess alot of folks here and BR think so...Jewell sells a bunch of them.

I think it depends on what your rifle is mostly used for. If you spend a lot of time shooting paper targets off a bench and want an ultra light trigger then it might be the one. If you are packing the rifle in a rough enviorment maybe not. Most trigger manufacturers make several different designs of triggers. Mostly seperated by their weight of pull. I have found that triggers that are to be used in the 1 1/2 to 3 lb range of pull tend to be more reliable. This is what I choose to use.

Re: Jewell Triggers?

I have 25 of them--(3 are spare blueprinted ones for my competition rifles) and have never had a problem with one. On sporters and competition triggers use lighter fluid to clean -- pretty easy actually.

Re: Jewell Triggers?

I agree with you Broz. Its my primary hunting rifle so it has to be ultra reliable. Im not wanting a hair trigger just pretty light. Id probably go with the 1.5-3.0 lb. model. How much do they usually go for?
