The standard one can be adjusted to give good results but I found the Timney to be much better than a well adjusted trigger if you are on a budget. but by all accounts the Jewel is the dogs whats it as is the Jackson but they both cost getting on for 4x what I paid for the Timney. I found the Timney v easy to fit especialy if you get the one that has the safety on and you dont have to swap the safety from your own trigger. I did one of those for a mate and it is not that much harder though.

I recently bought a Rifle Basix one:

They take paypal and had no problems exporting one (I'm convinced they need an export licence out of the US, but I'm not complaining).

It arrived REALLY quickly and luckily dodged import duty too! Sadly the dollar rate is not quite so good any more.

Fitted mine with a Kepplinger set trigger several years ago, very happy with it....

Unless a trigger rattles when the arm is picked up, I dont seem to have a problem shooting with it, I guess I must have fingers like sausages! :lol:

I replaced mine with a Jackson 2 stage match unit. It cost £200. Replacement was easy, however, machineing out the alluminium in my AICS stock was a job, but OK.

Jackson unit is a dream to use, fully adjustable and a genuine 2 stage match unit.

If you have a seriously accurate Remmy would not hesitate to recommend it.

As all the guys have said, there are loads of good triggers available for Rem 700's, plenty of good afterfit stocks available, barrels are really easy to change too and bolt handles. Most people stick with the orignal action as that is good straight out of the box.......

........Before all you Remmington fans start attacking me..... I am only kidding, Christmas spirit and all that!
