I've got a Special w/ pro curve shoe and it's great, but the Diamond is just that much better and will do everything you are wanting to do without removing it from the stock.

I've only owned 2 and they were both temperamental in general and aggravating when dusty/dirty. I sent them to others that think highly of them and shifted to Timney (variety) and Shilen (2 ounce). Couple of years ago I tried a TT and now have four. I've only tired Primary and Special models, but haven't experienced a hiccup and they've had ample opportunity to fail. They've proven to be robust so far...

Yes got sugar sand in the action and I am still trying to get the trigger back to where it was, I might still take it back to Jewell. It affected the safety more than the trigger so I can live with it.

Lighter pulls Jewell heavier TT but I will be using more Trigger Techs on hunting rifles due to the better ability to work if dirty.

Is the Diamond worth the premium price? Most of my hunting rifle are at 2.75 lbs if this is a factor.

Are the Trigger Tech triggers easy to install in the 700 or do I need a gunsmith to do it?

It's a drop in unit. You just have to fiddle with the spring and bolt stop to get it right.

700 triggers are easy to change out and Trigger Techs are no different.

Couple of pins and a wonky bolt release is all.

I've had a Jewell on my main hunting rifle for close to 20 years. Its been through all sorts of nasty/rough conditions and I have never had a single issue with it.

Just had an experience with TriggerTech customer service and they were prompt, helpful and friendly. Had a trigger get stuck in the safe position. Not sure what happened internally but I just mailed it to their return center. They shipped me a new replacement today also. Once they diagnose it the technician said he will email me the results also.
Anyone else have this problem? Just glad it wasn’t on a hunt!

Elk hunter watch a U-Tube video on the swap out. The only trick or tip is to leave the drift pin holding the bolt stop in place with enough protrusion to keep the stop in position. The spring is fiddly to get back on and is the only thing I have screwed up on a trigger change.

Triggertechs are good triggers but they're not a Jewell. On my prairie dog rifles I use Jewells, on a hunting rifle the Triggertech is plenty good enough.
