    I recently dropped off my barrel, action and other junk at my Smith's shop to get my long range build going. I thought he was going to have a heart attack when I handed him my Timney trigger. He basically told me they're junk and to get a Jewel. I know Jewel is the best. However I'm not building a benchrest rifle. I'm putting together a 500 - 800 yard mountain rifle. Now that the guy has me concerned about my trigger, I'm just wondering if I need to go back and get a Jewel. I've done some searching and read some old posts. However, for you guys that have both triggers and are using a Timney for hunting only, do you there any regrets. Did I sell myself short?

    Triggers can make a difference in the way a rifle shoots, and Jewel is the best. But there is
    nothing wrong with the Timney at all, and it can make a difference over a production trigger.

    Most smiths know that the Timney is thicker than the stock triggers and the stock has to be
    re inletted.

    The Timney is fine. Fully adjustable, can live in the real world with dirt and grime, and will do anything you need.
