After a good relationship for many years, my Kepplinger trigger and I have had a sort of a falling out, I’m afraid, since a Jard trigger has moved in on its action. It’s threatening to run away from home. If I call its bluff and let it go, what sort of reception should it expect out in the cruel world?

Had one, worked fine. Have moved to Jards at a fraction of the cost.

Have one in a Mauser and it's a nice setup. I do have a #1V that's in need of such.

I had installed this one on a No.1V .223, for a short time some years ago. It seemed like a good idea, at first. But, when used set, lock time was increased noticeably over what is usual for a No.1 - kalunk.

On the other hand, when used unset, it acts just like a very smooth, 1-1/2 pound, short-stroke, double-action trigger, without adding to the lock time. So, it is much more practical on a stalking rifle, as in the classic European tradition, for both set and unset use.



California has become a great state to be FROM.

I installed Jard triggers in two of my #1's- excellent triggers.


I'd rather be a free man in my grave, than living as a puppet or a slave....

I only have one Kepplinger trigger in one rifle and that's a No. 1V, 220 Swift. All the other No 1s have Moyer triggers. The Kepplinger is wonderful but expensive trigger.

I also installed a Jard in my K1A. That and a "Speed Hammer modification" took my K1A Swede from 1.25"-1.5" to a consistent sub MOA rifle. I just took it out to check the scope setting on it yesterday and fired 3 shots @ 100 yards. Ammo was RWS DK Twin Core 140 grain factory loads scope set on 5x. It was the group in this picture .425" center to center. I highly recommend the Jard trigger. RJ
