Re: Best AR trigger?

geissle is probably the best. i replaced mine with an rra national match. its a really nice 2 stage with a clean crisp NO CREEP break at 90$ it wont break the bank and is a HUGE upgrade from the dpms trigger

You can see an install from their website on a super semi automatic trigger for AR15.

Thanx for the link. That's way easier than an other trigger I've ever worked on. I'm going with the Geissele. The extra $$$ seems well worth it.

While the Geiselle are nice don't overlook the Wilson TTU or the American Gold trigers and I do believe that all are in the $269.00 price area with the Wilson and American gold being 1 piece and install in about 5 minutes with no adjustments needed and have a pull of 3- 3.5lbs.

The Geiselle is a great two stage trigger.

But unless you are restricted to a heavy trigger weight by rules from years ago... get an AR Gold!

The AR Gold has shorter reset movement, MUCH faster lock time and can be set to a lighter trigger weight - while maintaining 100% safety due to a unique double sear arangement.

Re: Best AR trigger?

I have both Geiselle Enhanced Match and RRA match triggers on my AR's. Both are excellent two stage triggers that run in the 3.5-4# range. I'm hard pressed to feel a difference between the two. The RRA is about half the price a little over $100. The Geiselle is very well made and finely finished. I also have a Jewel on one of my AR heavy varmint/target rigs. It's fully adjustable, also can be tuned to a very crisp pull but you can only get down to 2-2.5# reliably. Been using it for four years, couple of thousand rounds through the rifle with no problems or loss of adjustment. The only issue is lots of parts and a complicated design. It costs about $230.

Re: Best AR trigger?

when you say that you want "no creap" does that mean that you would prefer a single stage trigger? 2-stage triggers take a little getting used to for most people and while i like mine in an AR i think that most people that are used to bolt guns hate them for a while. most people end up trading them in for a good timney, jp or jard single stage that will feel more like their bolt guns
