Default match trigger questions

I am buying the lower parts to my next build at the moment, I want a match two stage trigger. This build is going to be my rifle for competitions. Can anyone give me some insight on particular manufactures and the best quality for the price.

Thanks,
Travis

the one i hear a lot about is the RRA two stage, but i have no personal experience with it.

For competition??

If you are serious about your competition, then you want a Geissele totally tunable, competition trigger. They are VERY expensive and they are the best trigger for competition ONLY shooters.

If you intend to EVER take this rifle to the field, or use it for any other purpose OTHER than competition, then the RRA is the next, best, most accurate trigger for longer range shooting.

What are the specs on your rifle and who is building it for you?

Absolutely sound advice!!

I tried a pile of triggers, my Benchrest AR has a Geissele. While it does not compare to purpose built BR triggers, it is the best available. You need to be wary though, I would not shoot my Benchrest lower on a 3-gun setup. The RRA however, would be great for that purpose.

Speaking of triggers could one of you gentlemen pop over and offer some details?

I really like my Timmney 4 pounder. Really light and fast yet not to light for a "battle" type rifle.

The specs aren't set right now still in the research and building stages. I have the upper and barrel, 24" coated fluted ported, 1:8 twist. Getting a young mfg. bolt carrier group. Have the scope, illuminated reticule, 10-40x50. I have my lower on order, a spikes tactical stripped lower. I am going to be ordering lower parts kit and trigger this week hopefully.

Just a college student trying to build a rifle to start shooting mid-long range comps with.

If anyone has any input that I have overlooked or any personal experiences will be greatly appreciated.

I would go with the Rock River since a lot of shooters at Camp Perry prefer it. Because the pull stays the consistent and does not change during competition. They call it a 4.5 Lb.Trigger. They normally have their trigger checked before the Match to assure it has a minimum of 4.5 lbs which they have to have. If they place they also get a final check. Like a Race Car who wins the race goes to Tech after to assure nothing has been added or weight prior to winning. If you are going to shoot sanctioned events they have a trigger weight rule.
Anyway, for the money and the quality that is what I would go with. I do have a JP Trigger in one of my varmint rifles that is a good trigger.
