The Rock River 2 Stage is the way to go for the quality and the money. They are excellent triggers and you can find them if you shop around for $100 or less sometimes. The start out good and get better as they lap in smoother around 100 rounds! You will not believe the difference. 1 lb free travel in the first stage and 3.5 lbs on the break!

I have read some real negative stuff on the RRA 2 stage. Lots of talk about how they can become quite "spongy". Any weight behind this or is it just not a high round count trigger?

Really, I always thought the First stage being controlled by the trigger spring was the bulk of the pull and the break was significantly less due to the seer engagement at that point being less than a hair. 1lb first stage with a total 3.5lb trigger would mean 2.5lb break on the seer engagement.

Upgrading your trigger all depends on what you like and are familiar with...single stage or 2 stage. It also depends on how much money you're willing to spend on a new trigger. Me, I like single stage triggers. I'm currently using a DPMS stock trigger in my AR, but like you I'm thinking of upgrading my trigger, but I'm not willing to part with 150 or more dollars for that trigger. The 2 options I've found, with great reviews from other shooters and forums, is either Bill Springfield or the Mega Tactical trigger. From what I understand you can't go wrong with either one. On top of asking other shooters, be sure to do your own research on what you want. Other shooters have their own preferences...just because they like something and haven't had any problems with it, doesn't mean it's the best option for you.

No, I was asking the OP. On the same note keep us informed of how you like the SSA.
