    i stumbled across this
    http://www.joeboboutfitters.com/JP_AR_15_REDUCED_POWER_SPRING_KIT_p/jp-jps3.5.htm

    so i was contemplating getting a couple to replace in my current stags.. so first off does anyone know stag average tirgger weight?
    second do you think theses might help.

    now, i can do okay with the current triggers i have i just thought this might be nice to change in them for a slightly better trigger.

    JJ,

    These might be OK! I am aware of JP and they make some good triggers. If this weapon would be used for LE or similar critical applications I am not a fan of bent or reduced power springs. There can be issues! Weaker Disconnector Springs can cause Double Ups on a single trigger squeeze when they get weaker. Hammer Springs can cause light strikes if hard primers are experienced and also when they get weak with wear. I guess for target shooting and plinking they are fine. But the AR was designed with certain specifications and I guess I am just sceptical when it comes to gimmick items. *Only my opinion!
    Someday down the road you might want to get a Rock River Arms 2 Stage National Match Trigger! They will drop right in the Stag Rifle with no problem. They have a 1Lb. Free Travel and a 3.5 Lb. Break for the shot! They are a great trigger and not all that expensive compared to the others out there! And are used by a lot of competitors at the Camp Perry Matches in many different brands of ARs. JP also makes a fantastic adjustable single stage trigger which I have one in my Sabre Defense 18" Comp/Varmit Rifle.
    *Another thing to do that will smooth any trigger out more is KNS Anti Rotate Trigger and Hammer Pins!

    It'll break in the same place, but with less effort.

    I run them in my AR with a PSA trigger. I love the feel and have yet to have a light strike or double tap. That's using them with both my .223 Wylde and .50 Beowulf uppers. One thing to think about, they usually cost less than $12 and can be swapped out in under 10 minutes. So if you don't like them or have trouble, you haven't lost much.
