    I have a first generation blued Sendero in .25-06. I thought the trigger was pretty decent until I bought a Remington police in .308 that had trigger work done to it. Now the Sendero feels like pulling a cat off a screen door to me. Are these triggers easy to adjust? Which aftermarket drop-in trigger would you recommend without breaking the bank. Where would you recommend purchasing it? I can't afford a $300 Jewel or Timney.

    Thanks! :)

    Remington 700 w/Safe

    Dude, $129.95 for a Timney 1.5-4 lbs..... I have the 511 on my 338RUM (LH). Pretty good trigger, the shoe is a little bigger than I was used to, but I'm happy with it.

    Shilen with RB safety kit, half the cost of Jewell and feels just as good.

    No problem, I have installed several of both and shot them all and I continue to install Shilen's on all of my clients rifles as well as my own. Enjoy

    I have a Shilen set at 2 ozs on my Rem 700 SPS Tactical and I love it. So easy to hold the gun steady and squeeze em off. I also own a couple Canjars but if I had to buy another trigger it would be another Shilen.

    I just installed a Jewell hvrtsbr-a (has top right safety and bolt release) trigger on my Remington Sendero 7 RUM and love it. The factory trigger was not bad after I adjusted it to about 2.5 lbs but I decided to spring for the Jewell. I think I paid $215 at Great Scott Shooters Supply. It's a great trigger. I comes from the factory set at 1 pound but has two additions springs with it that allow it to be set from 1 oz. to 3.5 lbs. I also like the fact that all adjustment screws can be adjusted with the action still installed in the stock. The adjustment screws also have nylon inserts so that you don't have to seal the screws between adjustments.

    Save your money and buy a good trigger.
