Re: Remington 700 aftermarket trigger?

I have a sendero 300RUM with the X-Mark pro trigger, my gunsmith would only take it down to 3lbs, in my opinion it was still too heavy and just plain junk. So I got a trigger from Larry scott, best money I ever spent. Those jewell triggers are worth their weight in gold. From here on out every gun I own will have a jewell trigger in it.

Re: Remington 700 aftermarket trigger?

For me it was a hard decision between a timney and a jewell, but after talking with Larry Scott I was sold on Jewell triggers and did not regret it. My shooting buddy has a jewell in his sendero 7RUM and loves it. Very easy to install yourself. I have mine set quite low, some people think mine is too low for hunting, but hey if your aware of how light its set and just remember that and not get buck fever you will do fine. I think my trigger is set at about 12oz. I am suprised that you couldn't find a smith that would work on your trigger as most smiths feel they can work a trigger over to where its better or just as good as an after market trigger.
Good luck

Someone once told me Jewell triggers are VERY expensive to own. I didn't get what they meant until I bought and used my first one. Now, almost everything I have has a Jewell trigger in it.

Stay away from jewell. i bought a jewell thinking because it cost more it would be superior. Thats not the case. i sent mine back to jewell twice with no luck. the trigger had a bit of gritty take up that never got fixed. i sent it back to midway for a timney. Almost 100 dollars less. I believe the prices should be the other way around. The timney should cost 230 and the jewell should cost 120. Dont be fooled like me

You must have just got a lemon. I love mine. I just clean mine with Zipo lighter fluid once in a while, and had no problems with it even with all the shooting I do in Wyoming dust. I have it set at 2oz, and I came bang the buttstock off a cement floor and the gun won't accidentally discharge.
