The Jewell Trigger: Why is this trigger so popular?

Building and customizing your rifle gives you a sense of freedom in knowing that your gun will be exactly what you dream it to be.  There are many parts to customize on your rifle build, but one of the most important parts of the gun is the one that fires the gun, the part that without you would not be able to control your rifle, and the part that has such an affect on accuracy that you should be able to adjust as needed.  I am of course talking about the trigger, and I’m sure you’re wondering what trigger you should be using. There are several options out there, but what is the best choice for you?  We have two different brands of triggers, The Bix’n Andy triggers, and the Jewell Triggers.  If you would like to know more about the exceptionally performing, high-quality Bix’n Andy triggers, click here, but we would like to explain a little bit about the Jewell Trigger. Jewell Triggers are very popular triggers used by competition shooters, including Precision Rifle Series shooters, but does it hold up to it’s name?  What makes the Jewell Trigger so popular?

Jewell Trigger Features:

  • All internal components are CNC machined from stainless steel
  • The modular design of the Jewell Trigger allows you to completely disassemble to maintain and clean the trigger when needed.
  • Forward mounted spacer with a pin in the firing pin stop that operates in a hole on the left side plate allowing the trigger to remain as a single assembly when not installed.
  • Light load at the sear that gives it a short, crisp, creep-free, repeatable operation.
  • This trigger can be installed in almost all actions that utilize the Remington 700 trigger.
  • Comes with a bottom mounted lever on the left or right side.
  • Optional bolt release lever on the left or right side.

Jewell Trigger Adjustments:

The main reason so many shooters use Jewell triggers and why it’s so popular is because of it’s ability for shooters to easily adjust the trigger.  There is not need to remove the action from the stock or chassis, the trigger can be adjusted externally with screws that are fitted into a nylon insert.  This maintains the trigger settings without the use of the thread locking compounds.

The Safety

The Jewell trigger HVR comes with an optional safety.  Current configurations available at Bullet Central are:

The Bolt Release

The Jewell trigger HVR comes with an optional Bolt Release.  This release is similar to the lever of a standard Remington 700 but is made of Aircraft grade steel.  It operates on the through pins in the elongated slots and returns with the spring/lever.

So why are they so popular?

A few reasons:

  • Weight adjustment isn’t so easy unless you have an after market trigger.  After market triggers, such as the Jewell are designed to be adjusted.  Factory triggers, even though they can be adjusted, it is not recommended.
  • Jewell Triggers have a wider range of pull weight
  • Jewell triggers are reasonably priced in terms of a custom gun make

When shipping a Jewell Trigger is has been adjusted for most applications but your own personal preference might require some other adjustments.  Always ensure the rifle is unloaded when adjusting your trigger.
