    Ranierarms has some of the new SSA versions. If you want one buy it today.. It's prolly the best non adjustable 2 stage out there.

    The trigger is the most important part.
     
  4. Yeah. Good triggers have been in this price range for a long time.

    For a Ar unless it's some sort of dedicated long range varmit gun, or other precision shooter I much prefer a single stage trigger. The JP, Jard, and Jewel are all very good.

    hmmm 1st time ever with a 2-stage trigger, so it feels a little different than the standard trigger.

    when you first pull the trigger, you get what i think is called trigger creep? then you feel the trigger get stiff. Pull back any farther and it fires.

    i think the creep part is the 1st stage, and the stiff part is the 2nd stage?


    It does have a much lighter pull compared to my standard BM trigger. I like it, but i dontk now if it's actually worth the $200. :o

    That first stage is called "take-up." Trigger creep is when you pull it to fire, and it keeps going, and going, and going before firing.

    Cool. Then that means it has no trigger creep then. I can feel the real trigger creep on the factory BM trigger. But my BM trigger has been broken-in well, so it's not that bad. Stiff/heavy, but no problems.

    Cant wait to put this trigger through a beating. :noes: But think of the ammo. :wtc:

    Two stage triggers are popular for precision shooting. You can stack the trigger up and refine your sight picture then break the shot. What I don't like is the 2 stage triggers have way more pre travel and a much longer trigger reset than single stage triggers. Short story a single stage trigger is mechanically faster.

    I ran a 2 stage cmc trigger on my AR for a few years. It was OK. My single stage jard is way better.

    I've standized on single stage or single stage feeling triggers. I want to get it to the point where it's the same muscle memory regardless of platform.

    I've always seen these triggers for $280, but this is apparently a new version?

    Anyone know the differences?

    The hi speed is the 280 dollar version with completely adjustable weights and travels. The SSF and the SSA are like the the high speed, but non adjustable. The SSF is for select fire lowers. The SSF and SSA are combat triggers and fill in the void for people who don't want the extra adjustments. Or don't want to spend the extra money or they have a full auto.

    Gotcha. Now I have to decide which I want. What's the trigger pull weights on the non-adjustable version?
