Re: Jewll vs. Rifle Basix vs. Timney

What is the difference between the Jewel triggers? Such as the BR, HVR, etc? I've always wondered this.

Re: Jewll vs. Rifle Basix vs. Timney

I caught Shilens on sale for 85.00 and i have only tried the timney a couple of times, not enough to offer educated opinion, i am quite satisfied.

Like someone mentioned about Jewel, now that I have used the Shilen' I am in process of changing them all out to Shilen.

For the cost, they are real hard to best IMO.

Re: Jewll vs. Rifle Basix vs. Timney

I have two Rem 700s with R. Basix Triggers . They feel quite different : one is excellent , one still has a little Creep I can't adjust out . I had a very early Ruger 77 on which I installed a Canjar Single Set Trigger which I liked as good as a Jewel . I have heard the later Canjars were inconsistent ( just before they went Kaput . I have seen 2 Jewels that did not impress me , but I think they might have been improperly set-up . I have seen many more Jewels which felt great . I have purchased two Rem 700s with Timneys , neither of which I could get to adjust worth a darn but don't know who or how they were installed . I should mention I like 8-12 Oz. Triggers for Varmint Rifles , maybe a tad more if they break well .
