    I have one on a 25-06 push feed here thats setup for LR varmints , playing , oh I mean inspecting it yesterday and it seems to be the same feel and functioin as the triggers they use in the Rem 700 , top notch. I'm still not convienced that they are 100% better than the Rifle Basix though and they are 100% higher in price.

    I guess if you were trying to shoot record groups that they may be a little bit better than the RB but thats on'y once they are brought down to 2-3 oz's

    Rifle Basix makes a trigger for the Win M-70 I'm ordering one tomorrow for a customer who is gonna be dropping of his gun next Friday , so if you can wiat till the first of the year I'll give you a full report on it.

    Brownells has it for $79.95 item number #758-000-009AA

    the ad says that it can be adjusted down to 10 oz safely and has adjustments for creep , over travel and weight of pull. With a little bit of stoneing and proper lube I'm sure it can be slicked up to be very very nice.
    I seriously doubt that one can tell a proper worked over and stoned trigger to a Jewel of the same weight and creep , especialy on a hunting weight gun , on a full custom BR rig maybe and thats a big maybe

    I could not get a RB to work on my model 70 varmint. It kept firing when the bolt was closed. Was to short for some reason...

    I went with a Jewell HVR set at 28 ozs in my 243 AI. It is a sweet trigger and needed just a little inletting to fit the HS stock that Win. uses on the heavy varminter.

    I do have RB on other guns, but prefer the Jewell hands down. I just put another HVR in my sendero set at a crisp 2 lbs.

    good luck, I don't think you'd be unhappy with either one.

    Thanks for the replies as they are helpful. Went to my local smith today to see about installing a Jewell in my m70 when, and if I order one. In his catalog [forget the company] it showed the adjustment range as 1 1/2lb.- 4-1/2lb. Midway and other suppliers show 1 1/2oz.- 4 1/2lb.. I was wantin a trigger that would adjust down into the ounces. Does anybody know what it really is. I was countin on the latter.

    Again thanks,

    Wyoming

    Buy the Jewell HVR, it will adjust as follows:

    HVR (Hunting/Varmint Model) with:

    a. Spring A: 8.0 to 56.0 oz.
    b. Spring B: 2.0 oz. to 16.0 oz.
    c. Spring C: 1.5 oz. to 3.0 oz.
    d. Pull above 56 oz. (3 1/2. Ib.) optional.

    I think it comes with the A spring installed and set at approx. 1 lb. I would bump it up if using it for hunting. Leave the A spring in and set it up a little.

    Good luck.
