Re: Tune 700 trigger or buy Jewell?

I have a jewell on my .223 700 rem., excellent 2 oz. crisp precise trigger. I reccomend them, you can get a cheaper trigger, and that is what you will have!! [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img] [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

I installed a Jewell HVR on my custom .338 ultramag. A tricked out Rem trigger is nice, but once you shoot the Jewell theres no going back!

Jewell is exellant trigger, but $200 is on high end. with a little work on BRcentral board and email to some of the parts suppliers (Brunos and Kelbys I think) you can get the Jewell for $145

Re: Tune 700 trigger or buy Jewell?

I am interested in a Jewell trigger, but cannot find a web site for their products.

I would like to learn the differences between the various models and study the specs.

Does anyone have a web address that might be able to provide this information?

Thanks.

Holmes

Thanks for the info, Texas.

I found a web site for Jewell with a Ferret search, but the site will not come up.

I'll give them a call tomorrow and get some answers.

Regards,

Holmes

Re: Tune 700 trigger or buy Jewell?

You might first ask your 'smith too look at adjusting your M700 trigger. Mine told me, that some adjust very well, while others don't. I got lucky with mine, it will adjust way too light for my comfort. When he first sent it back to me, the trigger would fire before I could feel it while wearing a light pair of cotton gloves. I had to increase the pull a pound or two.

I ended up spending $50 on a trigger job, and the rest of the money went on new bullets and powder.
