    Your preference and opinion versus cost. Have them both, Jewel and Timney and for the cost per, I find Timney pretty hard to beat. What do you think?

    Prefer Timney since they are 15 minutes away and I like buying local. Great CS as well.

    Try a Bix N Andy Marksman and then see what you think.
    Cost is relative to the importance of a good trigger.

    Check prices at redhawk rifles on triggers. Lots of good options.

    Jewel for my competition/target triggers...light pull repeatability is superb, well worth the price., Timney for my hunting rifles set at 1.5-2# bullet-proof, and consistent in all types of conditions: and available in 2 stage configuration.

    I like my timney. I like my jewell. The timney is a better hunting trigger. The jewell is amazing but a bit light for a hunting rifle in my opinion. Cold hands, a little excited at that big buck. I could see it being easier to make a mistake. Both are crisp.
