Has anybody tried one of the TriggerTech drop in triggers yet? I have ordered one today and will post my opinion after testing. http://www.triggertech.com/rem-700.html

My 700 trigger got replaced with a x mark pro, after a bit of tuning it feels and performs really nice. Not as nice as the Jewell in my 243 but still very nice for a factory trigger

I had the xmp in my 700 until the recall last year. Since Remington wasn't going to pay for remounting or bore sighting the scope that had to be removed for shipping, I decided to spend a little extra money and install a Timney instead. I put a trigger pull gauge on the xmp when it was adjusted as low as it would go and it was more in the 4-4.5 lb range. The Timney easily adjusted to around 2.5 lb. One issue I had is that either the aftermarket stock (H-S Precision) or the new trigger causes the bolt release to stick in the release position so it's at the gunsmith getting checked out.

I'd also note that Winchester's MOA trigger wasn't possible to adjust as light as it's advertised to go either. For a hunting rifle, and considering the price, Timney triggers are hard to beat.

Yeah those Timney triggers sound great. Kept the stock trigger on my 700 I bought new in 83 so far. Pull pretty decent but am considering a change.

I installed a Timney Calvin Elite, 8 oz trigger in my old 1970 vintage Varmint Special. Much better than the old factory trigger. I have not had a chance to actually shoot it yet due to work and wet weather conflicts.

If you prefer a 2-stage trigger, try the Timney Calvin Elite 2-stage. Mine came from the factory with a crisp, 1.5lb, break.
