I would like to replace my stock AR-50A1 National Match trigger with a lighter one. Some guys at a local FCSA match last weekend said to get a Jewell HVR-A? I've looked that up and it was for a Remington 700, and comes with a safety lever, which the AR-50A1 obviously doesn't need.

Can someone tell me which Jewell triggers are workable in the AR-50A1 and what mods are necessary?

Also, where can one buy Jewell triggers as every place I've seen has them on backorder. Does any business have them in stock? Does Jewell sell these triggers directly to public?

Two friends have Timneys in their AR50's. I'll ask which one if you like. Don't know anyone that used Jewell. Great triggers, though.

It's easy to do but if you don't feel comfortable doing it you can have a gunsmith take care of it.

On the Shilen I found that if you use the bolt safety and snap it down it WILL FIRE as that spring has some heavy tension on it. You will then need to take the trigger out of the rifle and reset the sear. My fix for this is I don't load the rifle until I'm ready to shoot and I never use the safety anyway so its not a problem for me. The problem is if you let someone else shoot it and they use the safety.

If you have a newer rifle the triggers are supposed to be better then the older rifles and easy to adjust. Look up instructions on how to adjust a REM 700 trigger and you can do it yourself or take it to a gunsmith if you don't think you can do it.

Thanks. It's a brand new rifle so hopefully it has a better trigger than I think. I will look up how to adjust Rem 700 triggers and try that route first.

When I researched this about 2 years ago, I thought that I read that any rem 700 trigger would work. I actually bought a rem 40x (several ounces) trigger but still have yet to install it.

I called Jewell directly and said I have an AR50 and want a 3lbs trigger. They said no problem and hooked me up. Did have to do some filing on the stock to get it to fit. Very minor. Works great. I recommend it.

That sounds promising....What is the specific model number that you bought?

What kind of filing? Did it come with instructions on where and how much to file? Or did you have to do trial and error?
