    The RRA two stage seems to be pretty popular and not to expensive for what you get. I have not however fired a rifle with one though.

    when i originally ordered the pieces for my AR i ordered it with a stage 2 trigger, but they were out of stock so i just went with a standard trigger, but now i want a better piece. what are WMD's opinions?

    what exactly is the 'two stage'? shorter pull? lighter pull?
    what about a 'match' trigger?

    well, the 2 stage is aimed at CMP competition, and is held at i believe 4-4.5lbs of pull, other match triggers will trim that down to ounces if you choose, i like my WOA tuned RRA 2 stager, but i still feel like a cheap ass using a 2 stage on my $650 upper

    There's two distinct "stages" when you're pulling the trigger. The first stage is all take-up (similar to trigger creep, but it's meant to be there) and then you hit like an "edge" where you can rest your finger until you get your target in sights, then you only need to pull a fraction of a measure for it to break (the second stage.) They're pretty nice on gas guns because they have a tendency to require a heavier trigger pull just because of the way they're designed and the advantage of the 2-stage is that you can pull through most of the trigger pull weight and take-up, and when you need to shoot it takes a lot less effort.

    so if you have a 4.5lb trigger, and the first stage takes 3 lbs, after you pull through the first stage it'll only feel like a 1.5 lb trigger when you shoot. It's hard to explain in words, but if you shot one you'd be like "ohhh... :eek3:"

    The two stage is to allow for a really light final trigger pull, but with a length and effort that keeps the trigger safe.

    Like was explained, there is a long smooth take-up that has a bit of weight to it, but then comes to a stop at the beginning of the second stage. Then it takes just a hair to release the second stage.

    So its like having a really light target trigger, with a lot of take-up so its not like it fires with just a touch.

    I have the RRA trigger on two of my ARs and it is very nice for the price. If you want something really nice though, there are some other aftermarket ones out there that are supposed to be excellent, like the Geiselle. But they are at least twice the price.

    In the next month or two it sounds like there is going to be between 1-2 new 2 stage triggers coming out. I'd wait.
