Building my first AR-15
 
My dad and I have been starting to build our first ar-15 and we just bought a stripped lower and a stock with a buffer tube. We are now looking into trigger mechanism but are having trouble finding one. Anything would be helpful. The caliber is a 5.56.

since you don't have one I highly recommend a ALG QMS trigger ($45). It is a milspec fire control group (FCG), at the same if not a bit cheaper than you can get by buying a seperate milspec trigger.

If you want something a bit smoother look at a $20 upgrade to a ALG ACT trigger (I can personally reccomend it) or a Spike's battle trigger.

Just make sure that you get a hammer, trigger assembly, 2 pins, disconnecter, disconnecter spring, and the hammer and trigger springs. (8 pieces)

Do you need a complete lower parts kit?

I just notice you said you got a stripped lower.

They can be a bit hard to find right now.

You will need a lower parts kit to complete the build to include not only the trigger group but the various other pins, springs and detents needed to hold all the other mechanical parts together. Daniel Defense, Spikes are good basic mil-spec kits but you will have to work at finding one in this market. Expect to pay $90 and up.

If you cannot find a kit you can try building your own. Brownells or Midway usually carry the individual parts, just get a good parts list and order what you need, also a good opportunity to get spare parts or to upgrade to a better trigger than what comes in most kits.

I ordered kits from the CMMG website and they came in about 3wks.

Www.kevinsguns.com saw some cmmg lpk's there the other day. Not sure of price but you might check it out. I've never been on their website so you may end up needing to call them.

rogtac.com has the ALG QMS trigger ($45) in stock. I personally have been looking for the ALG ACT but can't find it in stock anywhere :(
