    I'm buying parts for my SBR build while I'm waiting on the paperwork. I'm not sure what trigger to go with. CQB applications. Any recommendations? There are lots if different ones out there and I'm wondering what triggers you SBR owners are using.

    ALG QMS would be my choice. Crisp and clean, $40-50 combat trigger. I have them in most of my ARs. I've also been pretty happy with the triggers that come in PSA kits...for whatever reason the basic milspec triggers in their LPK/LBK have always seemed pretty clean.

    I only consider superlight $200 triggers for precision/varmint rifles.

    Thanks for the reply. What's the lbs pull on that trigger? I really like crisp single stage triggers. I've used PSA mil-spec triggers and they are nice but I'm looking for something a little more unique for this build.

    QMS is a really clean 5-8lbs. Generally closer to 5 than 8 in my experience. But QMS does stand for Quality MilSpec...as in, milspec weight (only fires if you really mean it) and milspec durability.

    Also check out the ALG Combat ($65) with the JP reduced springs kit ($10). I loved that combo before my SSA & SSA-E.

    Triggers I have experience with are PSA mil-spec, Spike's battle trigger, and a Timney. I've honestly liked them all, just wanted something different.

    You said combat application. If you mean it, you need a combat type trigger. A competition trigger may present a hazard. The SIG SAUER rifles have the trigger pull just about right.

    SSA-E is hard to beat for a cqb type rifle. The ALG and reduced springs are a good second choice. Timneys are in all of my varmit builds but not a good choice for a carry rifle.

    Maybe take a look at the brass bushed cmmg trigger. With the reduced springs its supposed to be pretty special. Would look great with a set of KN non rotate pins...:D

    Gotcha. I'll check those out. I wish I could test all of these before I buy.

    The CMMG is 2 stage? Was looking more for a single stage.

    Yea 2stage all the way. The only guns ill put a single stage in are varmiters that are never carried loaded. Just too easy to get a bump fire with a single stage, especially a light one.

    Not sure. Checked the web site - looks like SIG is not selling them separately. The idea is, a stiff pull with a crisp break. The Wilson Combat trigger group is similar but feels lighter.

    Just read the above ^^^ agreed

    I really loved the Timney single stage 3lb and 4lb triggers until I put an SSA in my SBR (8.2" 300BLK and 10.5" .223 Wylde uppers).

    I prefer the two stage SSA now.

    The SSA-E might be a little light for a real CQB rifle.
