In the seperate AR configuration thread, triggers have been brought up. Milspec triggers are often, no scratch that, usually, a bit stiff and rough. Any experienced shooter can tell you a nice smooth trigger can make all the difference in both speed and accuracy.. There are some very nice hi end trigger out there.. like the Fostech binary probably the one I would want the most: https://www.preppergunshop.com/fostech-echo-sport-trigger-for-ar-15 But I like to go more affordable and more simple..for one I cant afford to hand a binary trigger (2 rounds per trigger pull) to one of my nephews in SHTF and he will go crazy with our limited ammo supplies. Even troops in combat will use a full auto feature only by exception... and they have nearly unlimited ammo in theater.. and are often followed around by a Humvee full of ammo.. (I exaggerate, but u get my drift) Fast and accurate semi-automatic fire is where its at for Tactical Rifles. Especially if you have to do ammo management as every citizen must do. So a good smooth and light trigger is important... but for me I wish it not be too expensive... I am a big believer in bang-for-the-buck.. (also I am equipping a small fleet of rifles for my nephews as well, so every solution I accept, has to be affordable to be put on more than 1 rifle) The trigger below is conceptionally what I like... still has the mechanics of a milspec trigger BUT slightly softer spring ( not too soft or you may get light primer strikes!) and polished and covered with a hard lubricant. The ALG strigger is the best known one... the company is owned by the wife of the Geissele guy I think https://algdefense.com/alg-combat-trigger-act.html Here is one thats conceptually the same from a small manufacturer and costs less. It functions very well i own several of these.. IMO its just as good as the ALG for approx 25-30 dollars less and I put a great many of these into buddies' rifles, who are also quite happy with them. Also they were Nickel-boron coated before the ALG ones got coated. https://www.righttobear.com/Enhanced-Nickel-Teflon-Trigger-Assembly-p/enta-01.htm I like righttobear.com they make a lot of their stuff in house and their machining is good.. Actually I still have 2 spare RTB trigger packs in storage just in case the supply dries up and a buddy needs a trigger on his Carbine replaced. They make them in batches and are sold out about a third of the time. My DMR configured Rifle has Rock River rifle 2 stage triggle, which is affordable and very effective... but its in the DMR rifle only for a reason... 2 stage triggers are often not as robust/durable as single stage milspec triggers. One exception is Geissele 2 stage which is said to be quite durable despite being a 2 stage.. Geisselle also has many other very good trigger options.... but they all come at significant cost. So I am forced to make hard nosed cost-benefit decisions all the time.. Ammo, rifles, optics, magazines, NVGs(!), combat clothing, combat boots and enhancements such as triggers all compete with each other for the same defense dollars. So I like ammo that reliably goes bang and gear thats good... but it doesnt have to be crazy good.. because that often implies higher cost. The last 10% of "goodness" often doubles or triples the cost of a certain item.
