    could someone tell me how hard it would be to put an aftermarket trigger on a new mod 7 predator rifle + to adjust it . i'm thinking of maybe a tinney or a rifle basic. i'm trying to reduce the trigger pull some , maybe to 2 or 3 lbs. thanks

    Do a little research and I'll bet you'll find that your Mod 7 came with an adjustable trigger. Mine did. Nice 2.5lb pull, zero creep, breaks like glass-now. You may have to remove some locktite from over the top of the adjustment screws, but that's all the more difficult it gets. Standard 3 screw adjustment-creep, weight of pull, and sear engagement.

    I have messed with a lot of Remington triggers and most can be adjusted nicely and
    some are impossible to get smooth and consistant.

    When I get one of the bad ones I fall back on the best trigger available. "The Jewell Trigger"

    I have used most all of the available triggers and these are the finest in my opinion !!!

    They have hollow rivets that keep the trigger together when you are installing it and it
    makes things simple.

    Call Jewell triggers ans ask for the HVR model with spring C (1.5 to 3 pounds)With the safety
    and bolt release for the MOD 7 Rem . You wont be sorry except after the first one you will
    want to change out all of your Remington triggers.

    I wish they made triggers for other rifles but they specialize in Remingtion only.

    There number is = 1- 512- 353-2999 . give them a call.

    Jewell triggers are the best option out there perior.

    With a change of spring and some patients you can adjust a factory trigger to about 1 pound.

    It still is not a Jewell.
