Good source for AR trigger upgrade??


November 24, 2008, 03:58 PM
I'd like to get the RRA 2 stage trigger or another with similar quality/price. Suggestions on where to grab one? I checked the arfcom EE and found nothing.

I know it's not what you asked for, but I sent my stock trigger group to Bill at and I am stunned by the improvement.

PM for details.

this is the cheapest place I've found. Also a great guy to order from.

It's not what you are asking for, but you can get a 3# or 4# trigger made by Timney that is COMPLETELY DROP-IN!
Excellent trigger, but expect to pay right around $200.

I have at least eight Jard triggers, and am very fond of them for non-critical use. I use only USGI triggers for rifles that may be used for Really Serious Stuff.

i got my RRA 2 stage (on of them) from legal-transfers (hassle-free, good price) on arfcom's EE. Last time I looked there were dozens of vendors selling them on arfcom. i can't believe you looked and saw nothing.

however, the white-oak tuning of the RRA trigger is top notch by all accounts, so you might consider getting it from them. dunno how much he charges for that.

I just bought an RRA NM trigger from Jack's Black Rifle Shop on GunBroker. The price was $100.

taliv, he charges 120. Worth the extra 20 over the majority of other sellers?

you mean white-oak? yeah, i'd pay the extra $20 for holliger's labor to tune it. if he's just selling it unmodified, no, i probably wouldn't.

I had him rebarrel and fix up my CMP/NRA HP upper receiver last year and he did awesome work. however, i never sent him my trigger to work on so i don't have first-hand experience there. i've just never heard anything bad about his "tuned" trigger job. there are lots of threads here about it.

The Rock River 2-stage is very good.

The Gieselle-lovers club will be along shortly to offer rebuttal.

His $95 Highest Quality Two Stage Trigger Group is a Rock River Arms 2 Stage National Match. I put one in my M&P 15 and couldn’t be happier.

I'm very happy with my tuned trigger from John Holliger at White Oak. I haven't used two stage triggers from other sources, but this one is top notch.

A friend of mine has a Chip McCormick drop in trigger that he seems to really like. They come with either a straight or curved trigger, as I recall he said he liked the straight trigger after he got used to it. Not sure what the theory behind the straight trigger is though.

I installed a 3# Timney unit in my Bushmaster and am very pleased with it, a HUGE improvement over the factory trigger.

I did the EXACT same thing (3#). It's like the difference between night and day. The nice thing is that I just bought it, followed the instructions and basically dropped it in, secured two allen screws to tighten it against the two pins.
