    Does anyone have a Geissele trigger on their AR? From what I have read it seems to be one of the best triggers available for the AR platform. Those that have one, what are you reviews?

    I am interested too. May I ask what about comparing it to JP, Jard and RRA NM triggers if they may too?

    Thank you

    There is no comparing the Geissle to anything else.
    However, for my money I prefer the RRA 2 stage NM trigger. I tune it a little and it is a very, very close second.

    The very best there is. I have three of them. Sold two Jewells.

    How much are they ?

    Retail is $279 and you're not supposed to go below this as per the manufacturer. Look around, you'll see most places sell them for $279..........

    The RRA NM trigger can be had for less than $120.

    $120 is pretty high, there's no way I would pay $279, for what $12 in parts.

    BTW, my Dad owns a metal finishing business and we have a CNC machine, so I know what the stuff actually costs.

    BTW, Hags, I'm not getting onto you about the price, I just think some parts companies charge waaaaaay too much for stuff.

    $120 is MSRP and I guess it depends on what your priorities are.

    If you have a $1200 firearm and want a better trigger I would guess that less than $120 doesn't seem that bad, relatively speaking.

    I didn't think you were.

    $120 is not what I charge....SSSSHHHHHHHHHH!

    I agree, I agree, I agree........

    Dang, the Geissele is sold out at most places, gotta find one some where. I dont have a problem paying $279 for a quality product that gives results.

    I've got 2 of them now. I got the first one as a package deal with a used rifle. I planned on selling the trigger to get back some of my cost. I liked it so much I forked out the cash for another one. Best laid plans and all.

    If you get the Hi-Speed from Rainier Arms you get all three spring sets. Makes that $279 hurt a little less.

    I have an SSA on one rifle and a White Oak tuned RRA on another. The SSA breaks slightly crisper, and doesn't have the reputation for fragility the RRA has. I finally received (another) SSA that I had backordered right around last November or early December... haven't decided what to do with that. I may be tempted to build a third lower even though I just sold one :D

    Enlighten me on the RRA trigger being fragile.

    The RRA's have a habit of breaking at fairly low round counts. I had one and the hook on the back of the hammer broke off in the 500-1000 round region. It jammed the trigger group when it did it too - hammer cocked again as the gun cycled, but I couldn't pull the trigger. I'm sure they would have fixed it, but after that I didn't want the thing anymore and went back to a stock trigger.

    I'm taking the wait and see path on the Geissele. I like having a nice trigger but to me it's not worth having a fragile, suspect part in the gun.

    Geissele triggers are worth the cost, and often the backorder wait ... had to wait 8 months for my SSF. Other triggers I have are 2 guns with RRA 2-stage, a LMT 2-stage, and a White Oak tuned RRA 2-stage. The Geissele, both SSA and SSF are my favorites, but the White Oak is a close 2nd and pulls ahead on value.

    I got one for $250. Someone had bought one with the wrong sized holes and I swooped in! Love it!

    Wow, that's the first I've heard of that happening. I've probably sold hundreds and I've not heard any complaints though.

    I recieved an email today from Creedmoor Sports that they have Geissele triggers in stock.
