    Instead of sending my rifle in for the recall on the X-Mark Pro trigger, I decided to upgrade it with an aftermarket trigger. Which one do you guys recommend? I'm looking at the Shilen, Jewel, or Rifle Basix right now, but will take any advice you have.
    It is a .300 WM used for long range target and hunting.
    Thanks in advance,
    Larry

    Jewell is king. A lot of guys are rocking Timney's as well. I've got one however, it is collecting dust as I didn't care for it, at all. I have a couple Rifle Basix on Savage rifles, they aren't half bad. I run a Shilen match on a precision rifle & feel it's very close in quality to my Jewells.

    I've been wanting to try a Huber lately, we'll see.

    Jewell is the one all others compare themselves to.

    I was just about to make the same post. Does the jewel really have issues with dust?

    I am looking into a replacement trigger as well.... There are bit of them with loyal followers.

    I have taken my rem 700 aac 308 out with a jewel trigger on several hunts in the south. Humidity, rain, freezing temps followed by normal temps and the trigger still broke every time at its clean 12 ounces. No issues so far. If I have any ill post what happened.

    Jewell. You'll complain about the price up to the moment you squeeze off the first shot. Then you'll go buy one for each of the rest of your 700s.

    No, that's something that people who own inferior brands of triggers try to tell you. :D
