I'm in the market for an adjustable trigger kit for two of my Remmy 700. What options do I have: Jewell, Stilen, and others? Main purpose is precision shooting. Is Jewell worth the money?

If you don't want to simply adjust the factory trigger which is pretty darn easy to achieve a match grade feel and performance.. then spend your money on a Jewell. Both routes will do you well.

It's pretty darn easy. I could do it for you.. and if you think it sucks even afterwards.. then switch it out for a Jewell.. you have nothing to lose. Heck.. I'll even supply the loc-tite and trigger pull gauge.

cool. we can take care of it at your place or your area after a morning of shooting at APS. either the 21st or 28th (day of the match!) will work for me depending on when you're sending in your piece to get accurized. I'd suggest doing it before hand.

I'll bring a gun vise to hold the barreled action.. 65 in lb torque wrench to put it back together into the stock.. and of course the loc-tite and trigger gauge. We'll figure out how light you want your trigger.

I had a tuned factory trigger that was prety nice, but when it got dirty it started slipping and I couldn't really get it where I wanted it. I swapped out to a Jewel and it is great. I set it at 1.5 lbs and a bit of extra sear engagement and it feels great.

It was easy to install, but I had to take a bit of material off the stock for a nice fit.
