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 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.

    The JP turned my Dpms into an absolute tackdriver. Best move I made with it!!

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

    Geissele SSA-E is the way to go. it replaced a rra 2 stage in my ar. i use the same lower for my 223 bull barrel and my 45acp upper, works awesome-ba

    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.
     
  13. 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?

  18. 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.
