Need some trigger education please
I made the mistake of going cheap on my LPK when I built my AR. It is the only thing I am not satisfied with so I would like to do a little upgrading. I originally bought mine from AIM surplus simply because it was stainless and I wanted the contrast on my gun. I did not think about it being heavy through the entire squeeze like a double action revolver. I would like to find something with a lighter pull and possibly two stage, but I don't really know what to be looking for. I know there are the high dollar drop ins like a Timney, but I don't know that I need the whole breaks like glass competition job. I want to know from some of your personal experiences where I could find a better LPK or just a new trigger and springs so I don't have to buy the whole kit. Thank you

I use a 2 stage Geissele trigger in very well

I checked out the Geiselle and they are nice but a little pricey for me. I want something that will improve on what I have but I dont know if I need something of that caliber. Is there another brand that may be a little easier on the wallet?

The rock river 2 stage should be about 80-$90. I'm happy with mine.

Check out RRA "rock river arms" they make a really good 2 stage too, Brownells carries them

Wait, Geissele is making a modified milspec type single stage trigger for $45 & $65.

Should be out soon. In the mean time get a JP trigger and hammerbspring to lighten up ur pull, iirc $15.

Honestly tho, don't be afraid to splurge a bit on ur trigger finger. :)

I used a Rock River Arms LPK with a standard single stage trigger recently and am really happy with it. The contact surfaces on the trigger and hammer were all highly polished and the trigger pull is smooth as silk. There is no slack in the trigger or over-travel that I can detect. The rest of the parts all went in perfectly without any issues. Two-stage triggers have their place in the world, but for me the single stage is more like what I wanted.

Here's the LPK I used: _p/rra-ar0120.htm

Here's the two-stage RRA LPK if you are interested: _p/rra-completenm-kit.htm
