I’ve been reading up and looking at a “TriggerTech “ trigger. It looks and sounds real good.
I was wondering if any of you out there have had any experience with them. The price is right for a trigger of that class.
I will appreciate any thoughts an input you have. Thanks

Yep! I've tried the Mid price range trigger and the Diamond models on some friends' rifles. Also have quite a few other fellow shooters that have them on competition type rifles where dirt and dust is a major concern. I have not heard one complaint or failure from any of the owners of the trigger techs. They are well sealed from dirt, dust, should not break if one blows a primer, and easily adjusted for weight of pull.

It seems that every shooter has a preference for how they want the trigger to perform so I'd recommend you find someone who has one and try it. If you like a trigger to break like a glass rod with no creep at all...… you'll probably love em. I'm planning on owning a couple of them in the very near future. JME. WD

I recently purchased a Bergara Premier rifle that has the Triggertech trigger. I've only got 40 rounds through it so far and I can tell you there is no creep in this trigger and it is very easy to adjust. I'm sure it's a standard model trigger so this one will adjust to 1-1/2 pounds. I haven't taken it down there yet. I also have a Timney Calvin Elite in a bench rest rifle that is nice and that one is set at 8oz. You cannot go wrong with either one IMHO.

Yes sir

I have one the black specials and a diamond. Love these triggers, I can recommend them wholeheartedly. The black special goes to about 1 pound and I have the diamond is set to 10 ounces right now.

Just be sure that what ever brand you choose
that it will do exactly what you want in pull weight.
A cheaper trigger that doesn't perform, in the long
run isn't a bargain.
Jewell will adjust from 1.5oz to 3.5lbs. You only
have to buy it once. LDS

Thanks for your input guys. I really appreciate the info. Based on your remarks I’m convinced I should give one a try.
Thanks and hope you have a target rich environment.:)

I have always thought Jewell was the Cadillac of triggers and I have read that a lot of folks really like the Trigger Techs. I have always used Timney triggers and had excellent results with them.

I have two trigger techs on Remington 700s. Zero complaints......well one I can't find them anymore for the price I paid a couple years ago.

I don't know anyone personally that has one but the guys on the forums seem to like them. I like my Jewells well enough that it will be hard to get away from them. My next one will come from Larry. I want to try a Binx and Andy but they are twice the cost of a Jewell.

Something to consider when comparing prices on equipment. The horse that wins the Kentucky Derby isn't twice as fast as the one that comes in 2nd, but his payoff and his selling prices is significantly higher. The only problem I have ever had with a Jewell is the fact that they will sometimes break when you blank a primer. They aren't expensive to get fixed, but it's a PIA. I have 5 B&A triggers and have found them to be better. Not by much, but winning a benchrest match is a matter of thousandths of an inch. Slightly better makes a difference. I doubt I'd bother with one for varmints and such, but maybe.

Just sayin...

I have recently looked into the Diamond series. They have my attention for sure. Read up and see if they may be personally worth it.
