Remington 700 triggers
 
I have a Remington model 700 .204 ruger varmint and I am looking to do a trigger upgrade. I shot a 7mm-08 this past weekend with a 12oz pull and loved it! Any ideas what brands to look and what website can I find one at?

Thanks, God Bless.

Jewell is king. Timney is great for your hunting rifle.

SabreKiller 11-14-2017 10:35 AM

Numerous....
 
Rifle Basix, Jewell, Timney, Shilen...depends on how much money you wanna spend.

I have a Shilen trigger on a 700 Ti in 7mm SAUM set at 2 lbs. I love that trigger and am probably gonna order another one for my 700 CDL in 7/08.

Bruno has Jewell triggers for $215 - top Rt safety and bolt release

my next trigger will likely be a Bix'n Andy

I have a rifle basix in one and timney in another. Both are great.

Any good websites to order from? Good deals, free shipping...

Timney thin blade in my Remington 700, great trigger!

I have a timney in my 700 and really like it

hooligan 11-14-2017 10:56 AM

LAst year I saw Timney going on sale for Black Friday/cyber Monday from a lot of vendors. I think I remember SWFA, DSG and quite a few people had them at good deals

gneimeth 11-14-2017 11:03 AM

Dropped a Timney in my 700 / .270 before my mule deer hunt last year and it turned a below average rifle hunter into a sniper - lol. I pod $125 for it and it was a game changer for me. I’m sure others have differing opinions but not sure an avg guy is gonna feel or see a huge difference to spendvtwice that in a jewel or similar. Best bang for your buck IMO.

Just installed (myself) a Timney trigger on my Remington Model 600 Mohawk. I had to do a little modifying on the stock, trigger guard and trigger length to get it to fit.
Nice smooth trigger pull!

Why not have your 700 trigger reset to what you want. I did in my 700 Mountain rifle.

b/c if his trigger falls under the recall notice, it's about as useful as a paperweight. Also some people would rather buy an aftermkt trigger and not take the chance

my BR rifles wore Jewell's set at 2 ozs., my hunting rifles are set at 12 ozs. (3/4 lb.)

The Bix I squeezed last week was amazing, more impressive than a Jewell http://tdzone.fandroppingsllc.netdna...cons/shock.gif

I just saw a Timney on www.midwayusa.com for $105. Said it was blemished, whatever that means.

How hard is it to drop in a new trigger on the 700... or are you guys have a smith do it?

Ray Charles could teach Stevie Wonder how to do it :cool:

watch a few YT videos, read the instructions, take pics, have necessary tools (punch, hammer, finishing nail to take place of trigger pins) , and project can easily be done in 15-20 minutes for a 1st-timer.

you can order the trigger pull pre-set from the factory for your desired weight

I recommend 1# for the experienced person who shoots often from the bench. Most people who have never shot a Jewell or only use their rifle during hunting season opt for the 2.5# trigger

Dang it Blake.....

Your going to cost me money AGAIN!

oneeye 11-14-2017 06:29 PM

I installed a Timney on my 700 this past spring. I was disappointed. Seemed cheaply built to me. It is way better then factory, but not anywhere near what a great trigger is.

Mike D 11-14-2017 07:12 PM

Love my Jewell triggers.

Keep in mind that the regular Timney will only get you down to around 3lbs. They say 2.5 but I have had weird issues with the firing pin falling during bolt close approaching that pull. The weird thing is that it was not repeatable and only happened when the rifle was tested at certain positions, pointed straight up, or down. Upside down on the bench, etc.

Timney does offer a higher priced piece (Calvin Elite) they claim will get you down further on pull but with Jewell on the market at the same price why even try it?

Timney triggers will not even cut it for me in a hunting rifle, they are cheap and you feel it immediately when compared to Jewell. I have given Timney three chances and they never live up to expectations. My Bergara LRP elite came with the Timney and it was out of the rifle after one range trip, replaced by Jewell. I sent that trigger back to them and they did have decent customer service. They sent me a new flat blade that is supposedly set at 2.5 pounds but I have never taken it out of the package. If anyone wants that trigger I will let it go very cheap (It does not have the bolt release as most of my recievers have the bolt release on the side of the action). I also have a Shillen without safety that has never been installed if anyone wants to try that brand out.

This post my sound harsh; however, a trigger is the last place you want to try to save a few bucks at lower pull weights. I feel like the lower end Timney is unreliable at the lower end of their published pull, 2.5 lbs

Like Blake and Boswell I will be giving Bix a try soon.

Been real happy with the basic Timneys installed in 3 of my 700’s. Mine adjust down plenty low for my hunting guns, and they feel way better than the stock triggers. I’m not a bench rest shooter, so never spent the money on a jewel, but I know they’re great too.

A standard Timney will get to 1.5# but it MUST be tuned right. Sounds like your sear engagement was the issue. However, I am on the Jewel team lol. Ran a lot of both. Jewel is top dog. I really liked my Calvin elite. A lot. Timney feels a touch better but the CE shoe fits my finger much better.

I don't hear much about trigger tech. Wonder how those are

Bix'N Andy have been the buzz at the Benchrest and F class matches for a while now. Made in Austria using two ball bearings for wear points. They cost as much as a rifle barrel,Lol.
