For this are of the price range there is not a better trigger in my opinion than the Rock River Arms 2 Stage National Match trigger. It is simply a drop in on all small trigger and hammer pin receivers. If you shop around or go to some gun shows you should be able to find one for $100.00 or spend a couple of dollars more on the internet. Example $114.00 on one site. It is a fine trigger for the money.

Can find LBK with an ALG QMS trigger in it from PSA and that's a nice trigger for the money plus it will give u the rest of the quality lower parts needed for a build.

My 2¢

There was a large no-nonsense review of about a dozen AR15 trigger assemblies in the last issue of the Recoil magazine.

ALG Combat trigger $65 with JP Enterprise reduced springs kit $10.
$75 upgrade will do you much better.

If you simply want to shoot tight groups from a bench with your match-grade ammo (hunting/varminting included), the ideal triggers are going to be the $150-300 options from Timney, Geiselle, Hyperfire, etc.

If you're chasing the above on a budget, RRA may be an excellent answer. In my experience RRA's match triggers are generally good, but a little inconsistent (lots of travel/drag in some cases).

If you want an upgraded utility (defense/tactical/target/varmint/whatever) trigger, I'd highly recommend the ALG QMS triggers. They're mildly heavy, but crisp and clean. You'll only have to spend about $50. And they're about as close to mil-spec bomb-proof reliability as anyone could ask for. Many of the higher end $200-ish triggers have been known to break down at very inopportune moments.
