Thanks for all the info! I'll bump it up to 3lbs to see how it feels.

The Jewell has adjustable sear engagement, pull weight and overtravel.

Which one of these do I adjust to ensure I have the least amount of trigger travel? "IE, breaks like glass?" But make it the most stable?

I've already done the recommended:

"Cock action, turn screw (1) inward until action fires. Back screw out approximately 3/4 turn."

"Recock action, turn screw (2) out until it contacts tab (12). While applying pull on the trigger shoe, turn screw inward until action fires. Turn screw inward another 1/4 turn."

Thanks again for all the insight!
