I have heard enough people say "you can't work on a Remington trigger" Mine are the newer, less then 10 years old, X-mark pro. Is there any way to improve the trigger pull? I have six rifles that I can not afford $150.00 on each.

Yes, you can adjust them. You won't get them to a light weight bench trigger, but you can adjust it enough to make it a good trigger.

I recently bought a Rem 700 ADL with the X mark trigger, and adjusted it down to about 2-3 lbs. It's not a Jewell trigger, but it will work.

I have a Remington 700 ADL. I put a Timney trigger on it, and it's the best trigger I've every tried. I bought the "thin" version that Timney introduced a couple of years ago.

The XMarkPro should adjust fine, but the Timney is outstanding. I'm going to buy one for my Ruger American Predator rifle.

Best of luck.

I convert all my 700's to Jewels. Maybe you could do one or two favorites/year? Adjust them until then

Running TriggerTech on mine. Used an adjusted model 700 trigger for years. Difference is night and day.

Remington's are the one trigger I've never really had a problem with, easy to adjust and as mentioned above (Not target grade but close enough for most)they'll work for 90% of most applications.

Remington triggers are pretty easy and straightfoward to adjust. There are only three screws; travel, weight and sear engagement. The one to be careful with is the sear engagement. If you go to far with it, the trigger can be a scary, sensitive hair trigger.

Watch a few videos online and decide for yourself if you are comfortable with adjusting it. If you do decide to adjust the trigger be sure to lock the screws down with a drop of blue locktite or even nail polish.

I've done erniethegunsmith spring on 3 different 700's. In each case it reduced the pull weight from 3/4 to 1lb off stock.
For the price it worked for me.

I converted my 700 .223 ADL to BDL and adjusted the stock trigger. Really made a huge difference. Never shot a jewel or timney and I doubt it's even close, but man I love the results after adjusting it. PLEASE be very careful, as mentioned above, if you over-do it you can cause the sear to release with the safety on!
