    I purchased a Jewell trigger for my Remington 700, and can't seem to install it on the gun.

    I am confused as to where the spring and "black piece" go.

    Okay, I've got it together, but it still won't fit in the stock.

    The bolt works perfectly, but when I sit the action in the stock it simply will not fit.

    Might have to remove some material from the stock to fit it. Just put the barreled action in the stock and see where its hanging up, and remove a little material with some coarse sandpaper wrapped around a dowel, a dremel tool or a small file.

    The bolt stop?

    I've got the trigger and barreled reciever back together 100%.

    I just can't get them to fit into the stock.

    I guess I'll just sand it, but it looks like I'm going to have to remove about two inches of material from the entire right edge of the trigger guard hole:eek:

    Know anyone with a milling machine? Would take about 5 minutes to remove that material for a good fit. More time in just the setup than the actual job itself.

    It is very common for after-market triggers not to fit the factory stock, and ones that do fit are the exception.

    What do the instructions say? They should mention that removal of stock material is required to install the trigger. If the trigger unit is installed correctly on the receiver, and works, you have no alternative except to remove stock material to get the action back in the stock.
