Default Two stage trigger?

Is the two stage trigger worth the extra $$?

I'm buying a stripped lowed and seperate LPK, but the two stage trigger would cost as much as a second LPK.

I'm not hunting dogs at long distances, I'll be shooting paper at 100yrds or less more than likely.

Thanks for your input.

I have on in my AR15 and one in my 10/22. I personally think they're worth it. They help me a lot with accuracy.

I would go for it. I was hesitant about the two stage when I got mine. Now I love it. Do you need no. Is it nice HELL YEAH.

I opted for a single stage for mine. I like the feel better on a rifle used mainly for punching paper.

On my plinking / shtf AR I just put in the JB trigger spring kit and polished the slandered DPMS trigger. Works great. The kit is nine bucks at Midway.

For my more accurate 6.8 build I spent the extra on the RR two stage.

Or you could do what I did. Buy a Bill Springfield LPK w/3 or 4#single stage trigger. Works great for me.

I have a Springfield 2-stage trigger on my AR and love it. He's a good guy, too.

I do a lot more tactical shooting than from the bench. I prefer a single stage. In fact I just ordered a RRA single stage kit.

I like a good single stage trigger for all round shooting. No doubt an expensive trigger will help if you want more accuracy but it sounds like you can get by without the expense. I've built with three Stag LPKs and each one had a very good single stage trigger, better than most other SS triggers I've tried.

Like other here I like the 2 stage more accuracy shooting or hunting. For my SHTF/end of days/Zombie outbreak/Alien invasion or possible CWII AR15 I am going to swap out the 2 stage for a single stage.
