What trigger do you like for your AR? and why? I'm not very happy with my stock DPMS trigger looking for an upgrade. Not sure what I want single stage, 2 stage?

I like RRA 2 stage national match triggers in my calling guns but I want to try a Timney single stage for a target gun.

I too had a DPMS trigger in my first AR. Swapped it out for a great Jard. Liked it so well had one put in my 700. Crisp and clean.

I have felt them all at one time or another...and the winner is the JP trigger. Best I have felt, put one in my coyote AR. Buy once, cry once.

Some folks absolutely can't stand a two stage. I never really noticed it in my RR National Match two stage. To me, there is just some slack to take up which is not the slightest problem. After the slack is taken up, it breaks at 4 pounds which is a set, minimum number for some matches. I also have a Geissele ( guy sell ) set at a pound and a half which is soooooooooooo sweet,.......... and expensive.

I have several Colt's and their triggers were like sandpaper.

I sent them to JP Enterprises and had them professionally install their very crisp and clean single stage trigger.

Best of Luck!

Another vote for the Timney 3# drop in. Its an awesome trigger!

I've got a Jewell and I'm able to adjust it for what I like. If I want it heavier/lighter, it's 5 minutes work.
But it's 2-stage, and some people don't like that.

I like my McCormick, but I'd love to try a Timney to see if it is any better.

My friend has the same S&W AR that I have and he got the Timney ($234). That is one nice AR trigger. I think I am going to try the Bill Springfield kit.

Timey 3# drop in is great for a single stage trigger in an AR. Thats what I have and i love it.

I had a two stage and hated I put a single stage with a set of lighter springs. I now love the trigger.

+1 on 3# Timney.

Re: AR triggers? - 02/25/09 12:18 AM

+1 on the JP. That purchase eliminated my misses being the trigger's fault. Still miss tho.

I sent my AP4 trigger in to Bill Springfield and had him do the $50 job he offers and it came back quick but looked rough. I honed it up and installed. Works quite decently and breaks quite cleanly at a reliable 4 lbs. consistently and I think I like it. My other AR's have JP's so it had a lot to compete with but overall I am satisfied. For the money I can't bi#@ch!
