A thoughts on triggers and I will try to be more tactful and supply a few more words on why I say what I say than what I did on the weather meter
Triggers cost money and so do good optics. Spend money on optics. They will cost you about $4,000.00. The smoke screen class at the Ft Benning Infantry School makes it clear that you canít kill what you canít see.
If you are not going to have a new barrel put on with a precision cut chamber, there is not a need to put money on a new trigger that is useless. Just have him rework the trigger. That is what I did with my Rem 700. I took it to Eddie Harren and had him adjust it to 2 pounds and it feels really good to me and with the factory barrel still on the rifle I do not notice any problems relative to the trigger. The factory barrel need to be taken off though.
If you are one of those people that can feel a fish tap your jig with a 100 yards of line out then you have fingers sensitive enough to need a really good trigger. If you are like me and would not notice that a possum had latched onto your trigger finger until you reach into your pocket to get your keys and find a possum hanging on your finger, then you have no need for a fancy trigger. A worked factory or Timmney will do you just fine.
Finally, if this is to be a hunting rifle you need to think about what you are going to do. Even with a 2 # trigger I do not let my son load a round until an animal is seen and I donít either. So if someone else is going to use this rifle then you need to consider that fact. There are a few people who are actually good enough to hunt with a round in the chamber with a 4 oz trigger and I will bet that they are so good that they donít.
If money is not a consideration then by all means get your self a fancy trigger.
