    First order a Jard Adjustable AR-15 trigger ($120 from midwayusa with CR Discount, pm l4zy and he will hook you up, 150 without a CR)
    First all the tools and equipment you will need to install your trigger. Total time should take around 30-45mins
    • Punch
    • Hammer
    • Hex Key Set
    • Flat Head Screw Driver
    • Blue Loctite (Comes with trigger in package)
    • Flat Head screwdriver
    • Some sort of degreaser (Brake cleaner, gun scrubber etc)
    • Qtips
    • Some sort of grease, i use weapon shield grease

    Step one:
    First disconnect the upper from the lower and make sure there is no magazine in the rifle and the weapon is unloaded.

    Step Two:

    • Using the flat head screwdriver remove the pistol grip (Take if off slowly and dont lose the detnet and spring, i put them in the box that the trigger came with)
    • Remove safety selector
    • Now take your punch and hammer and punch out your trigger pin and your hammer pin
    • Set the old hammer and trigger aiside as you wont need any of these parts

    Step Three:
    Once you get your pistol grip off and the old trigger out. Lay everytthing out with your new trigger

    Step Four:
    Take off all the screws on the new trigger, and degrease them. The silver pin that holds in the disconnector and spring Should be 3 of them

    Step Five:

    After you have degreased all your screws use the blue loctite (it wont cure before you get done as it takes around 30mins to install), and grease and grease the parts shown. And reinstall all screws, make the two outside screws flush with the bottom of the trigger

    Grease the hole on the bottom as it will hold the trigger spring in place
    [​IMG]
    Install all the screws and dissconector
    [​IMG]
    Step Six:

    Take your sear engagement screw and put it where the old pistol grip screw went. Let it protrude out as much as you can. It may get really hard to screw in once past a certain point as the threading stops. But you can just force it in as, it keeps it in tighter, and nothing else is ever going to go that far in

    Step Seven:
    Install the trigger in your lower receiver, and the hammer, see if the hammer cocks back and grease it according
    [​IMG]

    Step Eight:
    If you put the sear engagement screw in far enough the hammer shouldnt cock back, keep backing out the sear engagement screw until the hammer will cock back. After this rotate the sear engagement screw out one more full turn
    [​IMG]

    Step Nine:
    Remove the hammer using the punch and hammer, and adjust the first screw nearest towards the magwell. This will adjust the overtravel. This part takes the longest, keep backing it out tell it wont cock back anymore. Once this happens take out about half a turn and reinstall hammer should cock back just fine. You want the bottom of the hammer to just be traveling past the trigger
    [​IMG]

    Step Ten:
    Next is the disconnector screw this is the screw in the middle, tighten it all the way down at first. And try to move the hammer down, the hammer should just barley catch it where it will have enough force to come back up from the disconnector, if it looks like its going to catch it alot keep backing out the screw tell it looks like it barley catches. Once it looks ok push the hammer down and it should catch it and come back up. If it gets stuck you will have to take out the hammer, and back it out some more
    [​IMG]

    Step 11:
    The last screw is for the safety it lets you adjust how much travel you have in your trigger with the safety on, Jard says there should be none, but ive never got to that point wheres there none with still being able to put the safety selector in. You keep backing it out until you cant put the safety selector in and than you just go down 1/8 of turn and put in the safety lever. Dry Fire to make sure it works.

    Step Twelve Last Step:
    Put the dentent and than the spring in, and the pistol grip. And grab the modified pistol grip screw and blue loctite it. It should look like this
    [​IMG]
    Also grease up everything

    My brother was able to polish my factory S&W trigger, which was really gritty, and make it so it has no extra travel at all. I like it a lot now. The only reason I don't get a new one is my department does not allow trigger modifications to any firearm used for duty.
