Does anyone know if Canjar is still in business making triggers? Years ago they were considered about the best around. I know, recently everyone's favorite seems to be Jewell, but I like to live in the past.

Another question: does anyone know if Flaig is still in business and making trigger shoes? I can't find a decent supplier of trigger shoes anywhere and am looking for one for my Cooper Mdl 21. Thanks.

As far as I know, Canjar is still in business. You can't go wrong with Jewell. Their triggers are as smooth as snail snot.

Cooper and Jewell had a falling out several years ago, early Coopers had Jewell triggers, or so they say. Canjar is basically a one-man operation, and he's getting older and cranky, he builds what he wants, when he wants, so you gotta get lucky when looking for Canjars. Good luck! biggrin.gif

Canjur is still in business, but Glen pretty well summed it up. I've got a feeling that if you want one you'd better get it now cause unless someone buys him out when he passes there going to be gone for good. All I used to put on the high end guns I built was Canjur. Their single sets were a thing of beauty and worked wonderfully.

Thanks, fellas. Anybody have a phone number or address for Canjar? Might as well give him a try while he's still kicking.

I checked a "Rifle" magazine for Canjar's ad, he used to advertise with a very small ad, but couldn't find it anywhere. You might check some older Handloader, Guns and Ammo, or other shooting rags to see if you can locate the gentleman thru them.
