Re: How to adjust the new Remington 700 X-Mark Pro trigger

Well i got mine down to one and three quarter lb. by my scale. The trigger screw can be taken out and put somewhere because it is difunctional period.
The real adjustment screw is a hex screw one the trigger assy. only one there. It will adjust down to 1 3/4 (mine on my 700 ss 5r 308} which i have learned to live with. i have not been into the trigger to do any sear work (yet)

By the way this is the most accurate rifle I have shot to this day.>>CHAZ

Re: How to adjust the new Remington 700 X-Mark Pro trigger

I have 2 relatively new Remington 700's with Xmark triggers. One is factor set at 4 lbs and won't adjust, the other is 4.5 lbs and nly adjusts 1/2 lbs.

My gunsmith told me if he touches anything except the external adjustment screw he void the warrantee. I called Remington and they stated that is the case. They also stated the information on the X-mark card is wrong. The trigger is not factory set at 3.5 lbs. It is set between 5-7 lbs and adjustable only down to 3 lbs.

I asked what I needed to do to get my working and the answer was send it back for a replacement or if you work with a certifed Remington repair facility they can send that person a new trigger system provided they have an FFL and provide Remington the serial number and registration date.

My gunsmith's recommendation is replace it with a Timmy as the Xmark Pro is total junk.

Re: How to adjust the new Remington 700 X-Mark Pro trigger

A little resurrection here and a few cents of opinion. 1) Gun gets loaded when it's ready to fire and is pointed in a safe direction. If it discharges, no one gets hurt and the shooter knows he needs to re-adjust his trigger or an aftermarket one. 2) If there is a problem, installing a Timney or Jewell is going to void the warranty anyway. A Remington trigger job can not compete with a Jewell trigger so the warranty will be voided at some point if the best trigger is what you're looking for. Tinker away. Then just put a Jewell in it and call it good when you're done with the experiment. I personally don't care about the warranty. Remingtons are built well and anything that they would do at the factory, I will have my local gunsmith do with same day service.
Jewell triggers are not just hype in my opinion. A good, crisp trigger can turn a 1 1/2 MOA rifle into a 1/2 to 3/4 MOA rifle without much effort.

I adjusted the Xmark trigger on my .223 to +/- 2 lbs and it's a clean trigger. But I don't trust it even though it hasn't had an issue. I'm waiting for my newest Jewell to show up.
