Default Trigger

On my STAG AR15 I installed a RRA NM 2 stage trigger. While at the range testing out new magazines and targets I was also shooting for speed. The 2 stage proved to be a little bit uncomfortable for me while doing this. It's a very good trigger and I like it in my AR458 but for this particular rifle I want to try out a good single stage trigger. What trigger do you folks recommend?

I prefer just a good mil-spec single stage trigger in all but a precision type rifle. Polish up the surfaces a bit and it will be crisp and problem free for a long time.

I've found the triggers in Stag LPKs are very good. I've used three kits now and each was noteworthy. If it works for you, a pretty cheap trigger and you have the rest of the kit as spare parts.

For bench and hunting i went with a 3# Timney. Just be aware they are not the best for .556 milspec ammo with harder primers. But fine for .223 and reloads.
A Geissele will give you the best compramise of a good trigger that fires milspec ammo fine.( From what I have read )
I also like the Stag LPK triggers, good, but not the best for benchwork.
There are many other choices for the AR. Good luck !

If you're putting it it a battle type rifle the 3lb trigger will be to light. I have a 4lb Timmney in my DD and its boarderline.

A worked over milspec trigger from Bill Springfield that uses a JP spring set is a good option for a single stage that won't break the bank. I'm very pleased with the one in my LR308.

I agree and would not have one in my home D., SHTF, AR. Three pound trigger under stress would not be a good combo. I have a Kimber .45 by my bed w/ a light trigger and feel sorry for whom ever it gets pointed at. God forbid it should ever happen.

Thanks guys I appreciate the feedback. I intended this to be more of a battle rifle so I'm going to order up a STAG LPK and try it out. Worst comes to worse I'll have extra lower parts.

Thanks again
