Model 700 trigger
« on: January 01, 2020, 12:22:42 PM »
I'm thinking of replacing the triggerin one of my model 700's. I was going to use a timmney but there's a lot of talk about triggertech, any opinions?

I have a couple Triggertech Primary triggers . IMHO they are just a step up from the Timney they replaced . If you want we could possibly meet up so you can compare them.

I put a Triggertech in my 700.  Very nice and crisp set up.

IMO, nothing feels as good as a Jewell, but Jewell triggers don't like any kind of dirt and they aren't the most robust trigger out there so I had been using Timney Calvin Elite triggers.  My most recent 6mm CM build has a Triggertech Special trigger in it.  Haven't had it very long so I don't really have much time with it, but it feels pretty good so far.

Nothing wrong with the Timney. Compared to the stock rig it is a huge improvement

I like both Jewel and TT.

My jewell triggers are amazing. Never had a failure.

I have been very happy with the Jewell triggers and have recently been playing
with the Timney Calvin Elite and like it a lot but I am a bit biased.  :chuckle:

The new TT Special I have is currently set a bit heavier than all my Jewell's or Timney CE triggers so I won't be able to give it a fair comparison until I lighten the pull on the TT.  The TT Special I have has a nice clean feel to it though and I'd say it, so far, feels very much like my Timney CE triggers, but as I mentioned before, nothing compares to the feel of a Jewell.  Who knows, maybe when I get the TT Special lightened up to the same as my Jewell's I'll feel differently though.
