    I bought a remington 700 Sendero with a fluted stainless bull barrel in about 1995. I was wondering if any one knew the twist in the barrel off hand and if it was a rifle I needed to replace the trigger for safety reasons. I had a local shop accurize it at the time of purchase and they did a trigger job and I believe it is 3 or 3.5 #. I have never had any problems with it and it is extremely accurate. It is in the 300 win cal and I have had alot of fun working up loads with it. If anyone has any suggestions on making any improvements to it I would appreciate it.....Thanks

    Yours should be 1-10 twist
    Your rifle does fall in with the trigger upgrade years but there truly are very few issues. Not knowing what your smithy did it would be hard to say of it help or hurt your chances of a problem. 3 to 3.5lb trigger is not very light and many factory trigger will adjust down atleast the low. Contact remington CS and see what they will do for you, just have your serial number handy. If you do want a great trigger, look to the after market. I have 2 different after market triggers on rifles, a Timney or my ruger hunter that has been set at 1.5lb for 14 years, and a Rifle Basix on a savage /stevens200 that breaks at 2lb. both rock solid.

    What about a Jewel trigger as I live in Canyon Lake Texas and they are made in San Marcos about 30 miles away...Hill Country Rifle in Schertz is pretty well known around here and they did the work on my gun. they will do a complete install for around 300$....seems pricey to me

    Jewels a great trigger also. 30 miles away nice. 300 dollars!!!! Price is tooooo high. A new trigger assemble is something you can do yourself. Most sites have great install info. Also for the jewel trigger see what the aftermarket cost is and just compare prices.

    I do see Great Scott Shooters has the Jewell trigger for your rifle for 185.00. .5lb to 3lb pull weight.

    I see Hill Country Custom Guns charges as much for their minor gunsmithing,as they do for their custom guns.

    I have shot 2 of their custom rifles,and for what the owners paid for them,I wasn't impressed at all.
    The fit was great,the finish was plain,and they didn't shoot any better than any of my Savages.

    There are plenty of choices for a good aftermarket Rem.700 trigger,and most can be installed without a gunsmith.
