Thanks for all the help guys!
    I had a Canjar single set trigger on a Mark V. It was extrememly unsafe and would go off by itself while just sitting still. I got lucky and discovered the problem with no shell in the chamber.

    Finally, I took the rifle apart and the "gunsmith" that installed it had a cheesy shim between the housing and the reciever which I removed and then re-adjusted the trigger. After that, it was very nice with no more issues. But, I had already developed paranoia and never really felt safe.

    I have really only just checked out a timney at a gunsmiths shop and was not impressed. I just knew I could not handle the crappy trigger that came in my sendero, the first gunsmith I took it to would only take the trigger down to 3lbs and that still was not good enough, so I decided to talk to Larry Scott and he assured me I would be very happy with a jewell so I got one and its the only trigger I will ever use. I just need to convince the wife into letting me put on in her gun. When George Vias was still here in Boise I had him work her trigger down but its still not that good. As soon as my new gun gets here my jewell will go in it. happy happy joy joy

    funny that nobody even mentioned the Kelby trigger. A few folks rate it better than a Jewell

    Anyone ever work with the Shilen triggers? If they are anything like the barrels their may be something to be said for them.

    I think Gunwerks may be using Shilen triggers.

    Yes.

    They are good triggers , but are essentially a Remington trigger that has been tuned, honed
    and set.

    I would use them in a heartbeat if I couldn't get a Jewell.
