EABCO #1 Replacement Trigger feedback

I'm seriously considering a #1 in either 9.3x74R, 375 H&H, or possibly 450/400. One issue is that I'm a bit of a trigger snob and I've never been impressed with the standard trigger on these rifles. Has anyone used the EABCO replacement and what was your experience? Worth the cost? The Kepplinger is supposed to be the best from what I've heard but I don't think they are available anymore? I know they are more expensive, which is fine as long as it gives a good clean break at about 3lbs for hunting. Did quick search and didn't find anything so if it has been discussed, please point me in the right direction.

JMO but I'd be trying the trigger in the rifle you get first, I reckon the original trigger in mine was not much over 3lb and was pretty nice. The Jard I put in is about 1/2 that and awesome.

I do plan on trying the trigger of course, but just trying to understand what the options are these days. Some of the #1 triggers I've tried aren't too bad but if I have $1000+ tied up in a rifle I don't want to have a mushy trigger in the back of my mind. The calibers I'm interested in means I won't get to pick from too many in person. As long as it's crisp, anything under 4.5 lbs is livable. I don't require a hair or set trigger.

If I were doing another, I would probably use that trigger which looks like pictures of the Jard triggers I have seen.

My two tropical rifles have modified Moyers triggers , the modification being grinding off the grooves and rough casting areas, making a very smooth trigger. I has the third screw, and honestly it has been so long since I installed them I cannot remember the function. They did make for a smoother lighter pull.

The others have the Kepplinger triggers, I polished the top rounded surface of the Kepplinger housing where it contacts the sear bar to a mirror finish, and the surface of the sear bar that contacts the Kepplinger trigger . The end result was a very light smooth unset pull on the three guns that received this trigger. The actual pull weight varies a little, and the set pull is around 6-8 ounces.
