    IMHO AR triggers should be replaced, never worked on.

    The best I have is Wilson drop-in unit, for less money JP is almost as good. Good luck.

    Yes, be very careful. You can accidentally convert a semi auto into a three round burst machine.:whistling:

    I got the JP Enterprises reduced power spring kit. It was $10 and reduces any trigger pull by roughly 3-4lbs. I am very impressed with mine and kept the factory trigger springs just in case anything ever happens. Just a thought in case you don't want to drop several hundred on a new trigger.

    Geissele, all the way, maybe not the SSA, but research what they offer than decide which fits your intended use best.

    Replacing with a quality trigger assembly is the way to go. I have a Timney (3 lb.) in my Spike's Tactical Lower, and I love it. You couldn't go wrong with a Geissele also.

    Geissele has made a major marketing push in the last year, and they are decent, but they have a different feel to them.

    I have JPs in all of mine except one. I have a JP modular and a POF modular in the two that HAVE to go bang when the trigger is pulled. Only a modular or a DPMS cover will prevent the odd primer from locking up the trigger.

    Geissele SSA or DMR. For target work, the DMR.

    JPs aren't bad, but i trust a Geissele to go bang every time with my life.

    Get a Geisselle trigger. There are lots out there. Which one is best for you depends on what you prefer. Single stage or two stage.

    If you are just going to punch paper you have more options and your budget would help determine that. What are you looking to spend?
