Next best trigger

I feel safe to say that most of us would pick a Jewell Trigger first and foremost, and if you would not i assume you have a legit reason not to. My question is what wound be your next best option, Jard, Timney, Shilen, Rifle Basix?

Re: Next best trigger

I like Timney and haven't used the others.

I also like Geissele for an AR.

Re: Next best trigger

I have various triggers installed on different rifles: Jewel, Timney, Rifle Basix and Moyers. The Jewel is outstanding, and the RB ERV1 on my Rem 700 is great; the other two are good, but not quite tops in my mind. My ERV1 broke a sear connector few months ago. I e-mailed RB same day, and they immediately put a new one in the mail at no charge, with return postage for the old unit. Great service.

Re: Next best trigger

IMO, unless you need a trigger that will go from a few ounces to a few pounds, I really don't see an advantage to the Jewell. I do have a Jewell on my 17 Rem varminter, and I do feel it would have been just as good with a Canjar, Shilen, Rifle Basix, etc. If you are going to have a pull weight between 2-3 pounds, any of the replacement triggers will serve you well. From 2.3 -4 pounds, I have had no problems with the factory trigger. True they are not as glamorous but function very well.

This is the order I would pick.

Jewell
Canjar
Old 40x Rem
Timney
Shillen
Rifle basic
Factory triggers

There are other good triggers available buy I have not owned any of them so I can't comment
on them.

The closest thing I have ever used to a Jewell has been the canjar. But they are getting hard to find.

Re: Next best trigger

From what i have heard is a shame the canjar is not around anymore. I was trying to adjust the factory rem trigger. I used lube, heat, and very light muscle and in the end the travel and the pull screw striped out, i was only able to adjust the sear. i would have to say it made for a glass 4lbs trigger (just need it a couple lbs lighter). Thanks for all the help guys!
