Re: Trigger replacement

You can do it yourself. If you are going to be doing a lot of bench shooting a 2 stage trigger may be a better option. Sometimes a light single stage with a short reset will double tap.

I like Geissele triggers. I have a SSA, SSAE and a (S3G just came yesterday). I think the best all around is the SSA Combat trigger (if I could only have one). A lot of good triggers out there and a good place to research is AR15.com.

Re: Trigger replacement

Very easy to replace. ALG makes a decent replacement that's a Geissele copy. Also POF has a nice self contained fcg for under $150 and it comes with kns anti roll pins. Rock river has a nice 2 stage for about $100. I went with a timney 3lb and got it on sale for 180

Re: Trigger replacement

I really like the jewell triggers. I have a few. You can do very easily. I prefer 2 stage.

Your spot I NEVER go back
My spot I expect the same

Re: Trigger replacement

That is the hammer and trigger pin size. .154 is small .170 is large. 99% of rifles today have small pin. I have read that Colt was the brand with large pin but has been phasing them out.

I would not call the ALG a copy of a Geissele. ALG makes a good trigger but they are nothing more than cleaned up and coated mil spec triggers. You still have all the take up and weight of a mil spec. Not bashing ALG, but it's apples to oranges. Also, Don't know if Bill would like you comparing his trigger to his wife's. lol

Re: Trigger replacement

I have a CMC curved drop-in that has a trigger pull around 4.5 pounds. I like it a lot. It runs for around $160, less if you catch it on sale. I was thinking of splurging before the end of year on one of those binary triggers for one my ARs. Anybody ever try one of those?

I would stay away from that type and also the Tac-Con.

Re: Trigger replacement

I take it you probably have a milspec trigger right now. Look up some info on polishing an ar15 trigger. I did it to my milspec PSA trgger and it really helped. Its not a 2lb $200 trigger but its far better than what it was.

All you need is some fine grit sandpaper and a dremel to polish it. You're not removing material persay, just taking out the marks left from machining.

It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died. Rather we should thank God that such men lived.
