    Any good? I have a custom G9 being built right now and I'm thinking of using either a TIMNEY, JP, or WILSON. My sponsor prefers Wilson Combat. What do you guys think?

    Wilson knows 1911s.

    This does not necessarily translate to AR's.

    I would advise you use a Geissele or JP.

    I'd go Timney or Geissele. The Timney dropin is the lightest trigger I've ever had that will reliably light hard primers.

    The Geissele is GTG, but not as light as the Timney can be.

    I've yet to not like any of the Geisseles I've tried, though my favorite is the SSA-E.

    Giessele SSA or SSA-E I own them both. Completely reliable.

    That the straight one? If so, it's got a great trigger pull, but I hate the way straight triggers feel. Or that might be the SD3G. Both are very light.

    I think you can get straight or curved.

    I can't understand putting a 2-stage trigger in close range guns like M4's and pistol caliber carbines. Either improve a stock trigger or get a Chip McCormick single stage. 2-stage triggers are fine for 20" and longer competition and precision rifles, but are too long (pull-wise) and complicated for a carbine, in my opinion.

    Have you ever shot a Geissele? You can't even tell it's a two stage during rapid fire and you have the second stage available for higher precision shots when needed.

    I shot my way into Master Class with 2 stage triggers.... remember the rapid fire stages of NRA highpower require 10 shots including a reload in a minute from standing to prone or sitting.

    Thanks for all the info folks. I'm kind of new to ARs, I've had a few but never modified anything. I'm going to take a long hard look at Timney, I keep hearing good things. As soon as the gun is done I'll share some pics, videos and a small review. Should be an interesting build.

    Tried one out today. One of the best triggers I ever fired on an AR. BTW, I have 2 ARs with Timneys that don't compare. :wavey:

    Geissele . If you don't want or need a light trigger, the ALG Combat Trigger is fantastic for $70 or less, and it's a Geissele design.

    Not to mention that with a decent trigger and scope, a 500m shot with a carbine is do-able.

    And those all have in common that they are more powerful and longer range rifles - not pistol or 5.56 carbines. That's pretty much what I said. My A2 competition service rifle has a 2-stage trigger. My M4, like any good M4, has a simple, reliable, single-stage trigger.

    I am assuming he meant a G9 on a Lone Wolf G9 lower - a pistol caliber AR that uses Glock magazines.

    No way a 2-stage trigger makes sense in that. Just a reliability issue that makes it harder to shoot fast.

    It's doable against man-sized targets with a 10.5" barrel, even.
