Re: Jewell trigger issues!!!
I'm one of the guys that reported the same problem when this was posted over on the GGVG board.
My spongy HVR is on a Nesika T. So, no J lock issue or anything like that. I've got several other HVR's (with safeties), on both Nesika's and 700's, they are all just fine. It's only this one I most recently bought.
I did reduce the sear engagement, which obviously reduced the creep. But, it's still kind of spongy, certainly not anything like breaking glass, and I'm really not comfortable with that little sear on a hunting rifle anyway.
Have not had time to really mess with it, let alone call Brian. So I'm not stressing over it much, yet. Figure it will get sorted out one way or another. If nothing else, I'll let my 'smith deal with it when I have him fit barrels to that action in a couple months.
It does kind of bite to buy the best, and have it not live up to expectation right out of the gate. It does happen with fair regularity though, unfortunately.
