AR-15 Triggers

I know there are lots of options, timminey, charles daley, etc.

I went with RRA two stage, because of the money, 3 times now. On one I had to adjust the trigger to fit the safety's barrel. I love em, crispy!

These make-um even better http://www.brownells.com/.aspx/pid=7582/Product/AR_15_REDUCED_POWER_SPRING_KIT

well worth the $10, took my RRA two stage from 4.5 to just under 3.5 #, and breaks like glass.

Re: AR-15 Triggers

Thanks Wolverine, I'll keep that in mind!

I started this thread, to stir up the pot and get some options flowing in this AR15/10 business.

I've seen the regular triggers, set up with engagement stops, and overtravel stops, and tuned up nicely. Even they aren't hard to work on correctly/safely.

rpainter- I'm not sure what Stag put in your rifle. Sounds like a nice trigger already. I'm sure some serious TLC could make it nicer, careful though you don't want to make it unsafe. I would try some good rifle grease on the pins, and sear surfaces, and see what that gets you without modifying anything.

Re: AR-15 Triggers

FWIW --

I went with a Geissele Super 3 Gun (S3G) for my son's carbine. It was a simple install and is a very nice trigger. But, I really only have the original sluggish DPMS trigger to compare it to in terms of an AR rifle.

My brother has one of the Geissele 2 Stage triggers that he likes a lot. I think his AR is a Daniels Defense.

All of my AR's now have the RRA NM two stage triggers. For the price and functionality, they can't be beat IMHO.

Re: AR-15 Triggers

I installed a Chip McCormick flat tactical on my .308 gas gun and it is the best AR trigger I have ever felt. Breaks beautifully at 3.5#'s.
