Had the original lawyer trigger adjusted down to 2 3/4# but just doesn't seem consistent enough. I'd like to get an aftermarket trigger. Anyone with feedback regarding their aftermarket Rem 700 trigger? Don't want to spend too much (i.e. jewell). Maybe something along the lines of Timney (I've heard the trigger blade was a bit wide on this one) or a Shilen.

Any help appreciated.

TIA!

jsr...An inconsistent trigger can frustrate any shooter. But before you trade out the Remington trigger assembly how about lubricating the whole thing (including the sear) with NECO Moly-Slide. Moly-Slide seems to have about twice as much moly in it as other grease lubricants and it WILL make your trigger release lighter. I'd try the cheap fix first.

That being said, a Shilen works great in my LTR. Adjusted to about 2.5#'s. It's been absolutely consistent in all kinds of weather.

Jewell is a competition style two-stage trigger. I have a Jewell in my precision AR. But I want a single-stage trigger in the LTR.

And Shilen is about half the price of the Jewell.

I shoot Rem 700 exclusively for a bolt gun. Most factory triggers I have adjusted satisfactorily. Have had Canjar(not worth the money IMHO), Shilen(not the competition) and a Timney. I by far prefer the Timney. Great trigger for the money. I have nothing bad to say about the Shilen just like the Timney better. Hope this helps. Good day. Dennis

I have had excellent results adjusting Remington factory triggers. I have a Shilen on one custom rifle and I also like it. Best. Watch-Six

I adjusted my factory trigger and love it. Have a Jewell in my AR and it is pretty sweet too.

Anything scpecial needed to adjust the trigger? OR How does one adjust the 700 trigger?

I prefer Jewell triggers, but if you want to keep the price down, Timney makes an excellent trigger.

Much thanks for all the excellent replies. I'll try the cheap fix first and if that doesn't work I think I'll try the Shilen.

Always Grateful

There are instructions on www.snipercountry.com. Look under the review pages for the Remington 700 rifles.

IMO, the factory trigger can be adjusted to meet the needs of most shooters, it's a very versatile design.
