Trigger assembly choices

I'm "upgrading" my Weatherby Vanguard. The purpose being to try to wring the most accuracy out of it, without breaking the bank.
I intend to fit it with a Bell & Carlson Medalist stock with aluminum bedding block and an adjustable aftermarket trigger assembly.

My question:
What is your first choice in triggers, Timney, Jewel, or Riflebasix?

This is all new to me, these trigger assemblies that is, and any guidance would be appreciated.

In my experience, the HOWA trigger in the vanguard is one of the better factory triggers out there, easily adjusted and very reliable.

Re: Trigger assembly choices

Of the 3 choices you mention, I would recommend the Jewell if you are upgrading the rifle. I'd guess that I've used the Jewell on over 20 custom builds over the years and have not found anything to compare. For me, the trigger on a rifle is one of, if not the most important factors in accuracy. If you can't break the shot clean every time with the exact same release, most of the rest of the upgrades really don't have a chance to help the accuracy.

Re: Trigger assembly choices

I put a timney on my Vanguard. Made a world of difference how it shot. I had to do a small amount of inletting to make it fit in the factory plastic stock. Not sure how it would fit in the B&C medalist. I plan on putting a B&C on my vanguard as well.
Any way I am happy with the Timney on mine!

Re: Trigger assembly choices

I have used all of the triggers that you mentioned. Jewell would be my first choice.
