    The stripped lower is ordered. God only knows when I'll get it. :o

    This is going to be my long range gas gun. It will eventually be sporting a 24" bull barrel, bipod, scope, etc. I'm looking for opinions from people who know shit about triggers.

    Geiselle. From what I've heard they are one of if not the best out there if you're looking for a light pull and clean break. They are pricey though.
     
  3. It looks from my limited research that you can use AR-15 triggers in an AR-10. In that case, JP is well regarded for their single stage trigger, and Jewell can't be beat for their two-stage trigger. I actually have a Jewell showing up today!

    Hmm..... Wonder what some of the big AR 'smiths have to say/use? Might rate a call if you want something really good.

    I'm not real hip on AR triggers, but I snagged a Jewell from the blowout a while back and think it's pretty good.

    Find a good AR smith that is local to you and use whatever trigger he wants to put in. Each smith seems to have a preference for trigger.

    If you insist on doing it yourself then a JP or jewell if they make a AR-10 trigger.

    go to www.snipershide.com then to the forums. There is a guy on there Glen Seekins that is fixing to start making billet AR-10 lowers for $300 or so.

    I like JP's can take awhile to install though
     
  12. I just opened my AR-15 Jewell trigger, and the instructions say not to use it in an AR-10. I guess you can scratch that option.
