Re: AR-15 Triggers

Lots of sage advise here. Better listen to them. It's one thing if you poorly stone a trigger in a bolt gun; not good, but in an auto? Serious trouble ! Very few can stone an AR trigger correctly. Wouldn't trust a young guy on it at all. You need lots and lots of time on the triggers to develop the correct touch. Of all the smiths I've personally known over many years; only ONE could stone a trigger correctly.
If you aren't happy with that triggers pull, creep, overtravel, etc.; pull it out and stick a RR two stage match trigger in. Cost is aprox. $120. and it's the best trigger money you can spend.

Just a note, I installed 4 RRA two stage triggers this weekend on lowers and after cleaning and lubing, not one of them needed any 'tweaking'. They were good to go as is. Money well spent on those IMO.

Re: AR-15 Triggers

I just put a Jard 2 lb adjustable in a RRA lower last week. Took a little bit to get adjusted but crap, it is a nice trigger. I have a lot of smooth lightweight triggers on my bolt guns and this is up there with them. Not bad at all. Wanted one of the 2 stage Gisselles, but didn't want to spend the dough. The Jard is pretty good.

My Sabre Defence Heavy Bench Target (204 Ruger) came equipped with a Timney and I am very satisfied with it.

Re: AR-15 Triggers

I have 2 Jard 2# triggers also. No complaints I like to have single stage to keep the feel like my bolt guns.

I also have a RRA and a Geissele SSA 2 stage. The SSA is hands down a better 2 stage trigger, but you have to pay much more. The RRA is the best value out there and is much better than a stock trigger. If you do some looking you can find RRA for under $100.

Re: AR-15 Triggers

I have 2 RRA 2 stage that I'm very fond of. I have a friend who has met Mr Gieselle and has one of his triggers in his competition AR and swears by it. I think I'm gonna drop another RRA in my DPMS AR10 soon. Gotta get the suppressor for my .223 first though.
