for about $80 from sinclair you can get the whole thing-shroud-pin etc.-it is made by Piercision-they seem to be pretty good as i have one ,and it slightly cheaper than buying all of the other parts seperately-my-2-dave

in a pinch a shoelace works good for removing the firing pin assembly-just loop it over the cocking piece and pull then turn -dave

Re: J-lock Rem 700 Question?

You can simply adjust the trigger with no side effects. You can switch bolt shrouds but the cocking piece will be to long, shorten or replace(shortening should be don by a smith). I woulld recommend replacing the j-lock on a precision rifle, I've seen them cause accuracy issues from erratic lock times and gun movement, from the firing pin hitting or rubbing on the cam for the j-lock. If you adjust the trigger and it shoots up to your expectations, your good to go.

Re: J-lock Rem 700 Question?

I found what i was looking for. Brownells has a Factory-original, firing pin assembly eliminates the ISS bolt lock system (J-Lock)on the current production, Remington 700 rifle to make it like they used to be. Features a blued or stainless bolt shroud with standard firing pin, cocking piece and firing pin spring.

Thanks everyone for your help and input.

By the way what after market trigger would the group recommend? Thanks again

Dead Beat,
If the rifle was shooting good and started to shoot badly it is unlikely that the jlock caused it. Usually if the jlock is an issue, it will be right from the get go.

Shadowman,
I have had good luck with the Jewell triggers. there are many triggers for the 700 but I like to have a safety on mine and many of the others don't. The Jewell is also made of stainless a plus in my book.

Shawn
