Default Timney trigger

Been looking at triggers for my Rem. 700. Thinking about a Timney, unless someone can justify the extra money for a Jewell. Also what are the advantages of a straight trigger over a curved one ?
Here are the ones I'm looking at, Midway has them a little cheaper.TIMNEY : REM 700 STRAIGHT TRIGGER W/SAFETY - World's Largest Supplier of Firearm Accessories, Gun Parts and Gunsmithing Tools - BROWNELLS

Don't forget Canjar single set triggers. They have an exceptional crisp trigger pull when unset and astoundingly light pull when set. They are fully adjustable in every way and 110% reliable. I put a Canjar set trigger on my .280. Canjar is not online as far as I know but are located in Denver.

Both mentioned are good, bordering on great, triggers, as in the Canjar that Bear mentioned.

Having said that, we install a lot of Rifle Basix triggers in our boltguns because they are rugged, field worthy and "cheaper" than the others.

The Jewell is not really a "field trigger" it is more of a precision, benchrest sort of trigger, so if you plan on taking this rifle anywhere other than a controlled range, I would recommend against that one.

Any of those mentioned will serve you well. The Jewell is the one that will be tunable down to the absolute infinitesimal degree, but most shooters will not be able to tell the difference unless you put thousands of rounds down range a month.

Let us know what you end up with.

Thank's JD for the info.
The rifle's purpose is #1 for hunting, but I still take it to the range alot.
I just have never liked the stock trigger.

Gordo - Take a look at a Rifle Basix drop in. For field use, and hunting, they are a great drop in trigger that is "rugged" without breaking the bank.

They are top shelf and great quality.

Yep. But shop around, they vary in price by a $50 window depending on when you are shopping. Great trigger. Drop in replacement with EASY as pie adjustment or there are places you can order it preset to your required weight.

For hunting, I would recommend 3#-4# just in case.

I have a timney and love it.

Don't buy the Jewell unless you are prepaired to pay for it. Because once you run with a Jewell you will never ever want another trigger ever did I mention that you will never want another trigger other than a jewell. not yes but, HELL YES they are worth every penny.

Here are my trigger tears
Jewell
Timney
Shilen
Rifle Basix
Canjar

Tango, I love you brother, but seeing your list I can't help but compare it to real life.

If you don't have a gunsmith and need a DIRECT drop in, you should follow Tango's list.

However if you have skill in tuning a trigger, or have a competent gunsmith, then you can take even a factory trigger and tune the hell out of it to break like a high dollar custom.

Look at the work stalkingbear does on STOCK Ruger 10/22 triggers. Everyone LOVES them, it's the mastery of the smith behind the work, stalkingbear, that makes the difference.

Jewell are great triggers. But they are great for bench rest triggers. For a field gun, I would NEVER put one in an "across the course" rifle or a sandbox rifle. They are just too damn sensitive, being they can be tuned down to mere OUNCES!!

Timney and Rifle Basix both have solid, well built, FIELD triggers that can be tuned well within specs for the application of say, "hunting".
