I have tuned Remington triggers. They are older Remy triggers, possibly from the 40X era. A talented 'smith can make the old triggers work really, really well. I don't know if that can be done with the newer Remy triggers.
Jewel makes a nice feeling trigger, but they are legend for crapping out with a small piece of sand or dirt at the wrong time. Jewel triggers tend to be set to pull weights in the ounces, which I think is a little too light.
The few Timneys I've shot on other people's guns felt really nice.
Geissele is worth a look. I've heard good things about Trigger Tech.

Timney has been good for me in several remlins I have owned for decades. I own one old bdl that has the standard factory and I was able to tune it . Got it like I liked and coated the screws with nail polish for safety.

If its strictly a target gun it's hard to beat a Jewel Trigger. There is nothing better, but they need to be clean and I would not use one in a hunting rifle. If you want an all around good trigger I'd stick with a Timney.

I have a Triggertech and Timney in ARs, and the Triggertech is far superior. It's not even close. I have a Timney in a Rem 700, and have tried a Triggertech in a 700, and they are very, very close in performance...but the Timney is substantially less expensive.
