I have had good luck with the Shilen,Timney and the jewell.
In my opinion they are in the order of cost and excellence.
Shilens require no stock work (They are basically a Remington's size).
The timney has an aluminum body and is thicker and may require a little inleting
in the trigger area.
The jewell is the best and has to be inleted in most stocks because of the design. the safety
has a link that moves forward of the trigger body and has to be dealt with but is well worth
The model HVR has 4 weight ranges and the one I like is the HVR C 1.5 to 3 pounds with
Hope this helps
