I have Jewel, Bix'n Andy, and Flavio Fare' triggers; my scores are no different between the three. This past weekend I dry fired a Trigger Tech (4oz on the TT). The creep is less and break very clean/repeatable on the Bix, FF and TT...splitting hairs. On the TT the overtravel can be set to near zero. Although I have several of the Bix and FF's my F-class rifles wear Jewels because they have NEVER failed me during a match; the two Euro triggers WILL have hang fire/no fire when dirty and we shoot in some dusty conditions. The Jewels don't mind being a little dirt and they are $175. My fellow competitor that shoots a TT says his has never failed either. He does use them on his hunting guns and sees no reason to ever change. I understand customer service is also excellent. I would go TT or Jewel...either way you will have an excellent trigger.
I did not read all the posts and my opinion is just that. I used to use Jewell exclusively. do not own one today. Great product, but if you have ever monitored them, you would understand what I am saying, easy to clog, and degrade.
I have had TT diamond, but still revert back to Calvin Elite's. When you go so far, returns need to be realized. I do not miss or hit based off trigger choice. In todays information super highway, we tend to follow advice from people we have no clue of. Not always sound.
Only thing I recommend to use the same on all rifles, TT, Jewell, or another.
Now if you shoot benchrest, now you depend on the trigger, and you will baby what you own.
I do not think most of us on this forum can shoot the difference of any of the 3 triggers I mentioned. We win by practicing and becoming efficient, not by winning the gear race. Then again, we don't really win by being the richest person person buried in that cemetery either.
I have TT, Jewell and Calvin elite on hunting rifles all @ 1lb and I like them all. I was and still am a Jewell fan just tried the other two on last two builds. If buying one today I would probably buy another TT.
Not to high jack the thread, but what is the real difference between Jewell, TT and for that matter Bix n Andy? I have a Jewell, set at 1lb and break's clean, is it the how low you can adjust them, can you feel a difference? I am just curious since I have only had a Jewell to work with.
I have TT diamond, Jewell, and Timney triggers on several rifles and they all work well. For under 1 lb the TT is more consistent. For 1 lb and higher the Jewell is outstanding and for over 1 1/2 lbs the Timney works great. The pull of a Jewell trigger is butter smooth and brakes cleanly; I might even describe it as a very small amount of unpredictability as it releases even though the measured pull is spot-on. The TT has a very crisp/clean brake and with the Timney I feel like I have a little more control over the well defined brake point for hunting situations. I know these are very subjective and somewhat abstract descriptions but you just have to try them. I think the TT is timed better for my Terminus action so that one stays on the PRS build (used Jewell on my old 700 action) and I think Timney is great for hunting rifles. I have never had any of these triggers fail and the Jewell fired thousands of rounds.
