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.
