Really figured a 2-stage would throw me for a loop when trying to shoot a running coyote coming into a call? I'm newer to AR's and I'm in need of a trigger, and just figured 1-stage were the only way to go for a hunting setup.

Wonder if adjusting to a 2-stage trigger would be comparable to the Savage Accutriggers?

I agree with you kpb, I wouldnt want a 2 stage for hunting. I dont think theres any adjusting on them, the 1st stage pulls way harder than an accutrigger blade.
Get a JARD single stage adjustable drop-in.

You can use a 2 stage trigger just like a single stage trigger. Never been an issue to me when hunting.

I've got 3 RRA 2 stage triggers, and 3 Rise 3 lb single stage triggers on mine.

I like a single. Velocy 3# is what I prefer and have several geissele sd-e's.

Pretty much. I switched to low power springs from JP or Kaw Valley in 2 Rock Rivers and a Larue MBT. Makes them feel fairly similar to my Savages. Works for me, but I'm sure a 2stage isn't for everybody.

I have a 3 lb Timney competition that I like a lot. I also have an old mil-spec that I put springs and the grip screw from Joe Bobs in that is great. Makes me hate all my others.

I use RRA 2 stage varmint on all my ARs. Same goes with grips and stocks. Doesn't matter if I'm shooting my 20 Prac or 6.8, fit, feel and trigger are all the same.

Before I tried a 2 Stage, I was apprehensive. Now, I almost prefer it. You can use em both ways. A good one will be hard to notice that wall and you could pull right through it. Both of the Geissele triggers I run I normally shoot them like a 1 stage unless I am doing sight in/load development OR I am trying to make a hit at an extended distance. Truth be told, it probably wont matter which way you go

I forgot to add, I do have a RRA 2 Stage and you can tell its an $80 trigger. Not bad, but the Geissele G2S is better for $40 more.

I have 5 ar15's and they all have a Geissele Hi-Speed NM trigger. The only negative is I don't have flat triggers in them.
