    Geissle Trigger

    In my continuing violation of the the rule, if it works don't fix it, I just installed a Geissele trigger on my Daniel Defense M4. The difference was amazing. The measured trigger pull with a digital gauge before was 8 to 8.1 pounds. After the new trigger, the weight measured between 3.8 and 4 pounds. If anyone is thinking about this trigger, i would do it in an instant.

    I replaced my mil-spec AR trigger with a LaRue MBT-25 two-stage trigger and was quite pleased with the difference. It's supposed to be about 4 pounds, but I haven't measured it. I don't think I would use it for a defensive firearm, but mine is a range rifle only. It was $89. I've never had the opportunity to try a Geissele.

    Which Geissele??

    I've got 3 of the SSA-Es and a Larue MBT 2S.

    The nod goes to the SSA-Es, buuuuuut at it's price point the MBT is a great trigger. For a defensive gun I like a two stage, as it allows the overall lightness of the trigger, with the added safety of the 1st stage. I've used mine in classes, 3GUN & IDPA (PCC) matches and hunting, yet to have an ND. I can easily transition from precision, to up close hammering tgts with a 2 stage. Earlier this month we had a stage that started at 300y, went to a series of run-gun tgts at 25-50 to a final engagement of small tgts at 80ys, the SSA-E 2-stage really came in handy.

    Best place I've found to get the Geissele's is PSA, just exercise some patience and sooner or later they'll have one of their sales and you can pick one up reasonably and often with 10 PMAGs thrown in.

    I went with an aftermarket Timney Competition trigger in my Armalite AR-10. The original trigger broke crisply, but at around nine pounds. I ordered my Alexander Arms AR-15 in .50 Beowulf with the SSP Geissele trigger. Love both of them.

    I installed a Geissle SSA in my M&P 15 MOE and it is great. I am about to install one in another rifle shortly. Got it on sale a couple months back at a substantial discount.

    It's a great trigger for all around shooting. The price was kinda what I meant by watching the PSA Deals...last one I got from them was $200 and they threw in 10 PMAGs. They have some pretty awesome deals, just have to wait for it.

    I have one in my M&P AR15 Sport and my M&P AR15 22 Sport. Great triggers and I have been very pleased with them.

    I like the 2-stage trigger, and put a RRA in my first AR. I heard so much good stuff about Geissele, when PSA had a sale I picked up a G2S and it's even more impressive than the RRA. Not even concerned with the trigger weight so much as the crisp break.

    I have a couple of Geissles Triggers in my AR's I like them because they are one of the only aftermarket triggers that use full power springs. The Super Dynamic 3-Gun Trigger is almost like having a gun with a burst option. A f/a M-16 cycles, at .1 of a second the SD3G can easily get a gun going around .12/.13 and if your experienced about .11.
