Triggers for Rem 700's. lets say in the 1.5# range.

Seems like many prefer the TT over the Tim. But I've never read why. The TT is a bit more cash in that weight range, why one over the other?

When the pulls go to ounces, I've had good results with Jewell, so just wondering about the above.

Triggertech. Less creep, easier to adjust for weight, more reliable.

Try a TriggerTech Special and then go try a Timney. You'll understand why once you feel it. To me, the TT has more feedback of a crisp "click" than Timney, Shilen, Rifle Basix or Jewell.

Had a Trigger Tech Special stop resetting trigger after 20 shots. The folks who built the rifle said they had seen that issue with the Trigger Tech Special several times. Contacted TT and they were less than helpful on resolving an issue with the new trigger. Bought a Timney and moved on. Do have a TT Primary that is working still. Probably just my bad luck, but I will say that TT was not high on after the sale customer service on that particular day. Just saying none of them are probably perfect. I could see trying a Diamond out on an appropriate rifle.

I have TT primary and Timney. Like both, but prefer the former, and is what I’ll buy in future.

Something must’ve been really off that day. I’ve dealt with TT customer service due to problems with sear engagement on a poorly timed Remington bolt (I’m guessing this is similar to the issue you had), and they went above and beyond to try and resolve my problems. They replaced a Primary with a Special, then when that didn’t work they custom ground a sear to try and work with the poorly timed bolt, and finally, they followed up a year later to see if the trigger issues went away after having the bolt re-timed (they did). Very impressive CS, IME.

You bet. I'd probably not drop one in a factory rig, but those rigs are all top end. Why cut costs on a rig like those?

Jordan, It was on my Vudoo 22. I certainly didn't get the type service you got. Obviously my experience was a one off based on the other experiences posted. No big deal. And I am happy with Timney so will stick with them.

Sorry you got the short end of the stick on CS, but you're right, it does seem to be an anomaly.

The first thing my right-handed Walmart clearance 223 got, and deserved, was a TT Primary! Figured a $79 dollar rifle left me plenty of room for a $165 trigger. YMMV!

Leaves floating on the trout steams and above the hills
The high blue windless skies
