    Thinking about replacing the trigger in my 1959 rem 40x rimfire trigger. Was thinking about a jewell br with bolt release. Any other suggestions ? (Bix n andy a little out if the price range). The factory trigger has been worked before i got it, it is nice and crisp but am thinking a lighter trigger might be nice as it is used as a benchrest gun. Do you think a trigger swap will be worth it?

    Thanks

    The guys at rimfire accuracy could answer this with allot of first-hand knowledge.
    Seems like I remember the talk of those 40x triggers being hard to come by/in demand

    For the money it's still hard to beat a Jewell. But the Bix sure is nice..

    The B & A sport was pretty close to the same price as the Jewell when I bought mine...
    It has been a good choice...

    I did a simple test on the trigger by standing the rifle straight up and hanging wheel weights from the trigger with snare wire and its around 16 ounces used a fired piece of brass as a snap cap. Now just to find a Canadian dealer or wait till Brownells has a sale and buy a Jewell with bolt release.

    Is there a way to release the bolt on the rimfires without the bolt release trigger?

    Thanks

    I'm shooting 2 of the Tactical triggers, now known as the benchrest trigger. When I ordered mine, could get them 8 oz up to 1.5 lbs I think. Both are as good as or better than my Jewell single stage triggers.

    Love love love my B&A. While I never blew out a Jewell as others have reported I know it’s something I don’t have to worry about with my B&A. On top of that it’s silky smooth and lets me pull at 1.5ozs and never worry about slam firing like Jewell has done on me in the past.

    Well I ended up getting a Jewell . The price of the B&A kind of put it out of the running sadly. Hopefully I wont have any issues with the Jewell.

    If you reinstall the spring and bolt stop you can push it down with a pocket knife or even a toothpick and release the bolt

    I have a Jewell trigger , I called Jewell directly , they set it to the ounces I wanted , it is pretty simple to make all adjuctadjus yourself. The only thing I did change to the trigger itself was stone down the edges and slightly rounded the bottom square of the trigger . All an all it's a very good trigger , you won't be disappointed .

    OP,
    As a Canadian....why not support a Canadian Company named Trigger Tech in Ontario Canada.
    Damn nice,consistent trigger groups for the price!!

    Got a bix on one and a jewel on another and if I didn't know which was which it would be hard to tell the difference both are top notch.
