Re: Jewell trigger

Got another reply from the owner. He is going to replace them both and did admitt that anyone could make a mistake. Said he will check the hardness and said that in fact that it has happened in the past. As far as the instillation I have been doing work that is as close as any one for 25yrs including some parts that were for a nuclear sub. Dan

Re: Jewell trigger

Much better. Jewell has been around a long time. I have two of their triggers and love them both.

Re: Jewell trigger

On another forum I had posted a question about triggers and one of the replies I got was about jewell triggers and how they didn't work very well with any dirt in them. I want to get a new trigger for my Sendero and am leaning towards a Timney. Have heard lots of good stuff about them. I just know my stock trigger sucks and I can't wait to get rid of it.
If my gun was just a target gun then a jewell trigger would be the way to go.

Re: Jewell trigger

I've only needed service once from Jewell. A "new" one I bought from Midway. It appeared someone else had it before I got it. Exchanged with Jewell, only an explanation over the phone . Had it in a matter of days. I'll have to agree with Boss Hoss, many triggers are installed in a 'slip-shod' manner. They appear soooooo simple, but , their installation and adjustment require complete attention to the task at hand and a complete understanding of the system. After all, they are the "key" to the "lock", and no matter how experianced we are, safety should be the first consideration. freebird, check-out the Shilen triggers. They're only made for the Remington 700 (and customs that use the same pattern). I've always been pleased with them. The installer needs to remove the safety lever and related parts from the Rem. trigger and install them on the Shilen, but that shouldn't be a problem for anyone installing an after market trigger.

FWIW--I use Jewell exclusively on my hunting rifles as well and have never had a problem. The key to keeping them in perfect operating condition is to keep them clean. Just remove the bolt and let the lighter fluid flow into the assy—then a few blasts of compressed air and you are done. Took longer to type this then it does to perform the above action.
