It is a Dell trigger (Dell Taylor).
They do not have a safety, so you MUST carry the gun unloaded.
Mine are set somewhere between 3-6 ounces.
I have 4 of them, that is how much I like them. Use them on a 284 Win, 6.5 Leopard (WSM), 7mm SAUM, and then my fourth one will go on a 223 (In process).
You will need to take the escutcheon off of the Rem XP trigger linkage and use it with the Dell. It is sort of a like a "U" shaped piece at the front of the trigger that attaches to the recoil lug.
IF you already have a 7-08 XP, did you want to keep that barrel? Length? Twist?
Were you planning to rebarrel?
A 284 Win, say with a 18" barrel will give you about as much MV as a 7 SAUM will with a 18" barrel when using 162-168 weight bullets.
You would not have to open up your boltface of your current bolt or purchase a new bolt for the SAUM head.
The head of the SAUM is larger than the 7-08, while the 284 Win has the same size.
If you have more questions, you can call me: 307-257-7431
