Re: Trigger pull on an AR-15

Shawn

Are you serious? as crisp as a bolt gun? LIke breaking glass with no creep. Never seen one set up like that. Unless it was a 2 stage. The JP must have redone all the geometry again to get to that.

I"m with you though-- single stage, anything under 2 pounds is very iffy as to total reliability.

I've won quite a bit at state and nationals and set some range records along the way with RRA tuned triggers from White Oak Precision. Thats what I'd suggest unless you are set on a single stage.

Shawn-- I'd still love to meet up someday and try that trigger. It sounds like a coup for a single stage trigger.

Jeff

Re: Trigger pull on an AR-15

Jeff,
The trigger has not changed, how you install and adjust them is the difference. I do a pile of trigger jobs on factory AR's 2-3 lbs and crisp like a bolt gun using factory parts. It is all in the setup. I have been altering trigger groups for quite sometime (both factory and aftermarket)because I hate 2 stage triggers for my own use.

Re: Trigger pull on an AR-15

Shawn thanks for the update. Never pulled a crisp single stage. And am so used to the 2 stage that in rapid fire I can dump 35-40 and have all hits with irons on the silhoutte target at 600 yards. But we always though that a single stage might be nicer in that particular rattle battle match at nationals.

Send me some more contact info and what do you charge to put a JP in? I don't need one but I might mull it over a bit and spend it just to amaze myself. I still just have this affection for the AR platform. Can't wait to get my beowulf....

Thanks again!, Jeff
