Rifle Basix trigger

Need a new trigger and considering the Rifle Basix mod.LV-1 for my Remington LR rig.
Going to use it both on the bench and as a hunting rifle in the forrest.

I'am also shoting lefthand......
Any1 of you tried this trigger ? I think a Jewell trigger are "overkill" for my use on this gun....
I dont know of anybody else that fit lefthand action's.

Please advice !
One shot,with precicion

Re: Rifle Basix trigger

Rifle Basix LV 1 is the 8 - 24 ounce model I think . That's what I have on my Rem. 700 .243 Ackley . I really like it but offer a word of warning . Don't adjust it any lighter than the original factory setting
(8 oz). I had an accidental discharge whilst applying the safety catch on my rifle several weeks after a minor adjustment to remove a little creep. Promptly wound the pressure back up and found that application of a little Tetra Gun lubricant (great stuff) to the sear overcame the creep problem .
Transferring the safety from the Remington trigger is a bit fiddly .

One of the nice things about Jewell triggers is you can get them in left handed plus don't have to transfer parts. If Basix included a safety his price might be the same.

A Jewell is truely a drop in installation.. takes about 5 min also not sure about the RB trigger but Jewell is total adjustable from under the trigger guard...no need to remove the stock once installed.

Re: Rifle Basix trigger

...get the "jewell" trigger, you can always remove it if you switch guns... one thing I encountered in a 700 classic stock was the need to remove some wood to clearance the safety and bolt release levers... well worth the effort for such a great trigger... you also mentioned bench work... all decisions should be this easy... "jewell"... jmo Larry
