Triggers for Rem.700s

Hey smiths&shooters, whats your thoughts on Shilen,Rifle Basix,Timney or Jard triggers for a custom 700 hunting rifle. All my guns have reworked old style Rem. triggers except a newer gun I'd like to change. Whats the better make,I like a 2lb.pull. Thanks, Dskiper

    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 effort.

    The model HVR has 4 weight ranges and the one I like is the HVR C 1.5 to 3 pounds with
    spring C.

    Hope this helps

    Go with the Jewell. I have had my stock Rem. triggers reworked by gunsmiths and by myself and have had good results, but NOTHING compares to the Jewell I just installed. Now I have to buy more!

    Dennis,

    I've used em' all and for what you'll spend on some other after market triggers, spend a couple bucks more and get the best, go with a jewel. Larry Scott has the best $$$ I know of.
