AR triggers

I need a trigger for my RRA Varminter and the DPMS LR308 I have on layaway.

Timney is the obvious choice, my smiff can get them for $175ish. I have also seen the CMC triggers for less.

Any thoughts from those who have used either?

If you're willing to drop that kind of cash, Geissele is the best thing on the market. Geissele Super Semi-Auto runs about $180, and it's an excellent trigger.

I should have an SSA in my rifle by next month.

I don't have any kind of DMR build at the moment, and I dropped my plan for a 20" rifle to build a 16" middy instead. It will be getting the ALG ACT, same as my Mk. 18 currently has. Whenever I get around to building a longer range rifle or SPR build, I'll be putting a Geissele in it.

Nothing wrong with the Timney #3 trigger. Just about all are better than stock for hunting/P-dogging.

Timney makes great bolt gun triggers and others.

Geissele pretty much ONLY does AR triggers that I'm aware of.

Stick with Geissele.

had no idea the Giessele's were so affordable, I will definitely check into that.

Thanks for the input.

oh yeah, both rifles will be used for P-dogs, pigs and porcupines and any other assorted nuisance animal that needs shooting.

This is also what I'm running, it is excellent.

Timney and CMC triggers are very nice feeling triggers when they are working well. However they are not as rugged or durable as a Geissele trigger. Just depends on what you are doing with the rifle and the type of abuse the weapon and trigger might see. I have a good amount of time behind all 3 of these triggers and my go to or hard use precision rifles all wear the Geissele triggers. My Noveske N6 .308 in particular runs a Geissele SDC.

looks like the SSA series are two stage? not really wanting a two stage.

The CMC is cheaper, but not significantly so, at my LGS.

Yes, two stage.

Why not?

What is wrong with your current RR trigger? Does it have the national match 2 stage?

I'm an AR newbie, but so far like my RR NM 2 stage trigger a lot. Doesn't feel much different than a good bolt-action trigger. Of course not as light as my Savage 10FP trigger.

I'm sure the Giesel is great like they say, just was wondering what was wrong with your current trigger, and which one it is

no, it does not have the NM trigger, just the typical gritty AR trigger. The DPMS LR308 has a standard trigger too.

I have several Weatherby's and a couple of Savages, would like a similar trigger on the AR's.

With the exception that FTF (face to face) handgun sales are highly illegal. May as well have handgun registration like Michigan.

Other than that PA is one of the better states.

I have a Remington R15 that out shoots my heavy barrel rifles and everything in between. I put a Timney in it and I am very pleased with it.

Some of the comments on how adding a trigger made their rifles more accurate is misleading. A better trigger will make shooting a rifle more accurately easier. If you are shooting from a rest you can shoot through a bad trigger by why? Life is too short to live with bad triggers.

I have a Remington R25 in 308 that needs a better trigger so I might try a Geissele it it.

Where can I find one for my R25 at about $180? I will put one in and report back the difference of the two.
