What you want is probably greatly dependent on how you want it to function.
I've got a modified factory trigger with a 3lb spring kit that cost about $35 to get into the sweet spot. I use that on my integrally suppressed 9mm after I pulled it out of my precision 243WSSM.
Put a 3lb Timney into my 243WSSM and it's a sweet set up, but pretty hard to justify more than double the cost of a very well modified factory trigger.
I just don't see it. Not taking anything away from Timney, but once you get any improvement over "FACTORY" you start hitting diminished return.
The improvement you get from a $35 mod, to a $150 drop in, to a $250 ultra awesome...isn't really that big of deal to me.
I've got a 2 Stage NM in my Armalite and that's nice as well, but there is no way I'm dropping $200+ on trying to improve it.
Back before I knew anything about ARs I sent parts to bill springfield for a trigger job. It came back, worked great, and was nicer than my dad's RRA national match 2 stage, at least to me.
The AR platform is like the 10/22 platform minus Kidd 2 stage triggers. 7 companies can get you a 2-3 lb. pull, either with their own parts, or with your stock parts. If someone offered a 2 stage with 3 oz/3oz pull for an AR, then I would completely pay $200 up. Until then, I will pay someone to modify the stock goods for me, or look into doing it myself.
