You may have trouble buying a lower receiver unless you fill out the paperwork for "rifle" not "other" or "handgun". Just going by what I've heard, I also live in a free state plus don't know the federal regs for under 21.

The OLD 4473's used to just list the item being transferred as either a "Long Gun" or "Hand Gun". The current one lists the Type, manufacture and the SE# of the item being transferred.

Default RRA 2 stage trigger LPK

1. It has a 1lb. Free Travel on the pull followed by a 3 1/2 lb let off.
2. This causing the trigger reset also to be shorter and faster. You only need
let the trigger go a short distance forward after firing the previous round
and you are instantly ready to go again. That was why the DEA and FBI
chose that trigger due to control and speed.
3. Which relates to total trigger control and you know exactly the second the
trigger is going to fire.
4. Also fast follow up shots and normally helps improve accuracy on precision
shots when you want that extra accuracy.
I am not saying that a good single stage is not accurate. But as stated
there is a broader margin of weight and function from one single stage to
another from the factory either in a complete rifle or in a kit purchase.
5. The Rock River 2 stage is prepared for rifles or for individual part sales by
an armorer at a bench and is simply a drop in if using the standard mil-
spec trigger and hammer pin hole receiver.
If you are going to build a lower receiver sometimes it is cheaper to get the kit with the standard Trigger and Hammer and then shop around for the RRA 2 Stage. If you shop you can usually locate the set for $100 and sometimes less. Compare to buying it as a kit form before you decide.
Sorry, I have used them since 2002 and really like them. I do have a JP trigger in my Sabre 6.5 Grendel Comp Varmint Rifle with K&S Anti Roll Pins. Nice set up also.
Good luck on whatever selection you decide upon. You always have our support here on the FTF!

I ordered a RRA lower PK w/2 stage trigger from Addax Tactical on sale for $140.00. The stand alone price for the 2 stage trigger is $120 to $125. Plan to install it in a Zombie Defense lower I have on order.

Go to the Brownells website...they have an entire series of free videos that you can watch online as well as complete diagrams of both the upper and lower with a listing of parts. Most manufacturers will sell kits or subassemblies that contain everything needed for a complete rifle (no lower), just a lower or just an upper. As previously noted Bravo Company, Brownells, DPMS, etc are good sites to start your research. There are also the various stickies in the AR section as well as the numerous posts from Mjkeat, JD, Sniper03 and Quentin, several of our more experienced AR gurus.
