    where to buy Jewell HVR trigger for REM700 for best price

    time for a trigger upgrade for my Rem700 heavy barrel varmint rifle . . . the HVR looks like the goods, exspensive but i should never need to upgrade again.

    any advice on best place to source one at the best price would be appreciated

    cheers R

    definitely consider one, writeups are very good, second choice is a Timney with a straight trigger, adjustable shoe, look about the same price . . but leaning towards the Jewell to future proof any direction my shooting may take me later. my usual practice is to buy things in upward steps of quality untill i eventually end up with good gear, this time i would like to cut out the time/cash wasting part and go straight to the endgame . . the Jewell HVR should be it.

    cheers R

    At current exchange rate right around $525 inc gst

    At $100 cheaper the Calvin Elite is defiantly worth a look.

    I have found them more reliable on Rem 700 actions.

    The trigger shoe on the Jewel isn't to everyones liking.

    I got my first Jewell approximately 20 years ago, bought at a time when Jewell was THE trigger. I bought mine direct from one of Arnold Jewell’s sons. Basically rang them, discussed spring configurations, gave CC details, trigger on the way – mmm times have changed.

    Nowadays I would be considering some of the alternatives in particular maybe a Bix’n Andy for the 700. Nothing wrong with the Jewell just there are other high quality options now available out there. Depends on the size of your wallet.

    Have a look at www.BulletCentral.com they will supply triggers internationally.

    Quite interested in a Timney myself. Have you got an Ebay link?
    A quick look and I couldn't see any that would ship direct to NZ - not really surprised.

    As it's a firearms component & over $100 USD technically they aren't supposed to export it without an export permit, this includes brass & projectiles.

    Yes aware of that. Done my share of buying over 100 bucks (brass projectiles and barrels) and going thru all the paperwork. Elite Ebay Poster must have got trigger via a back door, mate in USA, in which case it is of not much use to the OP unless he has a mate willing to risk the same.

    Strange thing was that Timney were prepared to ship to NZ up until about 2 years ago. Mate bought a Ruger trigger direct from them. No doubt they have well and truly realized the shite they could face.

    Does the 100 include frieght?

    Iv got two Calvin's, I like them. The standard timney didn't seem to like being at the bottom of its adjustment.
    Never used a jewel.

    As far as I'm aware it doesn't include freight.
