New AR trigger installed

Post by Yleefox » Mon Mar 21, 2011 9:39 pm

I finally broke down and purchased a new trigger for my AR. I just hated the old, creepy, grumpy, lazy, crunchy, diseased, corroded, and miserable factory trigger. Installed the Geissele this morning and what a fantastic difference. I'll be going to the range on Wednesday and give it a bit of a work out. I'll come back and give a report afterward.

I'd like to hear which model you installed. I use Jewells in my ARs.

I bought the SSA. I considered some of the others, but in the end, it came down to the fact that the Geissle I choose was on sale and that Geissle seems to have a good reputation. Of course, many others have a great reputation as well.

I guess time will tell if I have chosen wisely.

Ylee,
I also spend quality time on the national match.us site and the Geissle's are very well thought of.

While I haven't tried one myself, Jewell and JP so far, I wouldn't hesitate to put one in.

I'm thinking its a good move for you.

I think your right. I'm so tired of the original trigger, that this new one feels perfect. Could be I'm just overly thrilled with it, but I doubt it. We'll see in a day or two if I made a good choice.

It's not over excitement. A two-stage trigger has a far better feeling than the original single-stage trigger.

Well, I made it to the range today to give the new trigger a work out. It took a bit of getting used to the two stage pull, but once I became comfortable with it, it was good to go. Nice, smooth, and soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo much better than the stock trigger.

My recommendation for those that are sick and tired of the poor factory AR trigger is to replace it with a high quality trigger and never look back.
