I must agree wholeheartedly with ttango on the Jewell trigger. I have three M700 Milspec 5Rs and have replaced the triggers in the .308 and .223 with Jewells and love them. They both came set at 1 pound. Hopefully before the year is out the .300WM will have one as well.
The factory Remington trigger is simply unacceptable in my opinion. They are epoxied all up and rather than try to mess with them, I replaced them.
I am convinced that once you go with a Jewell, there will be no other trigger.
It would be nice if they could come up with a replacement trigger for the M1A as good as these are and be reliable and safe.

Same here when I comes to the Jewell trigger. I don't think they are as delicate as some may claim. They do come with 3 different flat springs and you can get a trigger pull weight of 6 lbs. or so if you want. Also you can take it down to mere oz's. pull as JD said. My Jewell is set to 20 oz's. pull for target rifle. They are spendy. I have a Timney trigger in a sporterized 03A3 set to 3 lbs. and it is a very good trigger but not as crisp as the Jewell. The Jewell breaks like glass and has practicatly no creep or travel. The Timney does have a bit of creep and travel but does break very nice when set correct. If memory serves me right I think I paid around $85.00 for the Timney.

So I just ordered the the straight trigger, Timney.
Never shot anything other than a curved trigger, so this will be a new experience.
It was about the same price as the others.
I'll get some range pics as soon as possible, it is truly an FTF gun!
Bedded by Stalkingbear, scoped by CA357, shot by Stalkingbear, Winds of Change, and the Angry Bald Guy! (Happy Bald Guy).
Now my mind switches to Hodgdon 4831 and the ultimate 7 mm load
Thanks for the help folks

You will be pleased at how much better that trigger is than a factory Remington.

Are you going to install yourself?

Yeah, I think I can handle the installation.
I found the instructions online and doesn't look too difficult.
Hopefully it will arrive when I am home on break and I can get a range report soon!

Got the trigger yesterday and installed last night.
Very easy to install. It was a little wider than the factory trigger so I had to file just a small amount of material from the inside of the stock's trigger opening.
Dry firing, I can already tell the difference over the factory trigger and I like the way the pad of my finger feels on the straight trigger. Hope to get it to the range next week!
Again a big thank's for the FTF advice!

I haven't adjusted it yet and I don't have a spring scale yet, I would guess it is set at about 4 lbs. , but absolutely no creep and just a little travel.
I'll have a better idea once I get to the range and shoot it. Will take pics and post a range report soon!
Can't give an honest answer until I actually shoot the gun and try some adjustments on the trigger. I can't wait
