    Looking for good trigger kit for AR-15

    I dont like the heavy trigger pull on my AR-15 as it is. I dont want to try and polish it because I dont want to polish off the hardened surfaces and because I have no experience messing with triggers and such.

    Who makes a really nice 3# or 4# pull trigger parts kit that will simply replace my stock one?

    I have a Rock River 2 stage trigger in my Stag. I really like it and think it would probably be about what you're looking for. I bought mine from Pete at AR15sales.com, but there are many other places that have them for sale also.

    Do you have a preference for single- or two-stage?

    I'm afraid I dont know what the difference between single and two-stage is. I shot a friends AR-15 that had a RRA trigger kit in it and it was really nice but I dont know if it was single or two-stage. He didnt say. He did say it was "drop in" trigger from an RRA LPK.

    A couple of months ago I put a 3# Timney unit in my Bushmaster C15M4. Their trigger set is totally self contained and drops right in. The difference is amazing, clean and crisp, and I shoot much better with it now.

    Chip McCormick also makes a drop in trigger kit. Never tried it though.

    A single stage trigger is like the trigger on most rifles. There a little slack and then the rifle fires.

    A double stage trigger is used on military rifles for various reasons. It has a lot of slack that must be taken up and then the trigger tightens up. When it tightens up,you continue squeezing until the gun fires. The first stage is the large amount of slack being taken up and the second stage is actually when the gun fires.

    Some after market triggers give you either option. Personally, I like single stage triggers. Just about all of the military surpluse rifles I have are two stage triggers.

    After using one style for awhile, it takes getting used to when firing the other style.
    I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

    HotGuns described them well. I also like single-stage triggers, but this isn't about what I like is it?

    I'll second rocky's suggestion: Chip McCormick makes good stuff. They're not cheap, but good things rarely are. Since they do a better job of describing their trigger than I do, click for light reading. I know of two people who use them in work guns (read: several thousand rounds per month) and both of them love these triggers and haven't had any complaints about them.

    Tally, check your PMs for a link to more reading on AR triggers that might help.

    That was an awesome read BAC! Thanks!

    From what I read I would definitely prefer to stick with single stage trigger.

    What I basically want to do is lighten my trigger pull weight. Mine feels as if it is welded together at first then breaks after I get a lot of finger pressure against it.

    A lot of this is because I recently changed my Ruger 10/22 trigger to a very light and nice clean breaking unit and I am spoiled now.

    Glad you found it helpful. I'd try to find someone with a two-stage trigger somewhere that you can try out. Some people really like them, some people really don't. A lot of the ones who do are precision shooters, a lot of the ones who don't are or were professional trigger-pullers. In both cases they were using what they trained with and are most familiar with. Keep this in mind when someone tries to sell you one kind or another.

    Anyway, good luck in your search and share your experiences with whatever you end up with!

    My personal preference is the Jewel Two Stage Match trigger.

    Their a bugger to get adjusted right and if you don't know what your doing your going to get some trigger slap on rapid fire shots, but when you get it adjusted right, I feel it's a slam dunk trigger for accuracy shooting and tactical shooting.
