    Which one should I get, its for a Stiller predator action based on the Rem 700,This is what I am thinking, Jewell, Kepplinger single set, Canjar single set or Shillen. I want the trigger pull at 2lbs, and if it is a set trigger 2lbs regular and at set, 8oz. Which one would you guys recomend? The rifle is going to be 7mm Dakota, 26in 5R rockcreek barrel ss fluted No 4 contour, and a Mcmillan edge in Rem hunter.

    Thanks
    Elmer

    Canjar ceased business this past September.

    Go Jewell or Shilen.

    I've had good luck with Rifle Basix triggers lately , I have their "Extended range Varmint Trigger" in my 260 now and its set at 8 oz and breaks as clean as the two Jewel triggers I've had in the past , I just don't think that guys believe that they can get a great trigger for $120.

    I have no experiance with Shilen triggers but Jewell is still the #1 rated trigger in the target world , their must be a reason for that , though I think it has alot to do with their reputation.

    Personaly I don't care for set triggers of any kind , I've tried two of them and never liked them , seems like to much their to go wrong and cause a head ache at the wrong time.

    The Shilen is a great trigger, rifle basix are good too, but nothing compares to a Jewell

    Triggers

    I put a Kepplinger single set trigger on my Rem 700 last year and accuracy has improved. I think that 8 oz may be a little too light in hunting situations.

    I agree with Mr. Jones, I've been using Rifle Basix triggers for several years now. Jewel is a great trigger also and not to down grade them but I've have had more problems with the Jewel than a Rifle Basix. I reccomend the Rifle Basix to several of my customers when looking to upgrade to a after market trigger without breaking the bank.

    Jewel Triggers are the best. My vote goes toward the Jewel.
