Yes. I had a jewell seize up on last years annual prairie dog trip. It is pretty dusty where we shoot but not anything crazy. Ran some lighter fluid through it and got it working again but it made me nervous about my big game rifles with jewells. After my first Triggertech I will be switching all my big game rifles to them.

I have two Jewels and one Triggertech Diamond. Just yesterday I adjusted them all to what felt like the same pull weight. I don't have my pull gage at hand, so I did it by feel. All are adjusted down to where I can place my finger on the trigger without it going bang, and then just mostly think about breaking the shot and have it go off. I drop tested them all by dropping the rifles on the butts from about 9" off the floor. None went off.

I didn't spend a lot of time dry firing to compare, but the ten minutes I did spend led me to believe I would not be able to tell them apart in a blind test.

I have had some problems with Jewells made in recent years, namely timing issues that require the bolt to be drawn slightly to the rear before the rifle will cock. Some say that QC has slipped since the death of the company's founder but that's pretty subjective.

I have a handful each of Timney Calvin Elites, Triggertech Specials and one TT Diamond. I've had nothing but good results with all of them on Remington, Defiance and Borden actions. My last 5-6 builds have used Triggertechs.

I can’t tell the difference between the two to justify the price for Jewell’s. My last triggers have been Triggertech.

The trigger techs don’t go down to benchrest pull weight levels...

BUT for tactical work OMG they are sweet... I’ve gone to Trigger Tech myself and am very happy.

The Diamonds adjust down to 4ozs.

Not sure what BR guys want in pull weight, but can’t see much less than that?

For folks that like a two stage trigger, Geiselle now is making a nice one for the R700.

I have had (have) both. The Jewells on comp rifles set at 1 1/2 oz were great never slammed fire or failed to cock.

Have one on a .308 hunting rile for at last 10 years set at 2#. Never a issue but every once in a while starts to creep. A shot of lighter fluid and its good to go.

Have had a trigger tech set at 1 3/4 for two years. No issues. The safety is more crisp on the trigger tech.

Heard from 2 gunsmiths that there have been issues with recent Jewells. Machining in the trigger hanger?

TT Diamond is my top choice. I probably have 10-12 rifles with Jewells and won't replace them, but all of my new builds will be equipped with TT's....


Luck....is the residue of design...

I have two more waiting. I like them. Not sure I need a Diamond the primary and specials have worked great. What am I getting from a Diamond over the Primary or Special besides a lower pull weight?

TT is a nice trigger. My only complaint is that they are non adjustable for sear engagement.

This. I also really like TT’s flat shoe. The safety is much more positive on the TT. I do wish they’d come out with an M70.

I use Jewell's on my varmint rifles and am interested in the trigger tech that goes to #1. Curious if their claim of feeling 0.5# lower then the gauge says actually feels that way. Would like a trigger tech that feels like the 8 ounces I set my jewels at, but suspect the way to "feel" like my jewels is to get the diamond? Anyone try the #1 I believe SPECIAL version, which is what I would like to try, but your feedback- experience would help me decide.

Thanks
