I like my CMC
RRA makes a good one

Geissele is good but you’re gonna pay for it.

My Timneys have been good.
Got a couple of velocity triggers and aren’t bad for the price.

Not a."drop in" but Larue MBT is as good as any and less than a c note. http://discussions.texasbowhunter.co...ighlight=larue

Timney or CMC for drop in single stage. LaRue for nice 2-stage trigger.

I've got two with the MBT and really like them. They're going for cheap right now at $87.

X2 on velocity. Sorta wish I had gone with a 2 stage, but the single stage works fine for hunting situations

This is the way to go. I like the Larue a lot better than my 3.5 lb CMC.

I was truly skeptical of pricey triggers and drop-ins altogether, but Geissele has (had) a 50% off sale during the holidays and I was able to pickup what seemed to be the ideal trigger for my build. I got the Super Semi-Automatic Enhanced direct from the factory and will NEVER look back. It made such a difference that it would have taken the sting out of paying full price. This thing is amazing. If you're looking for a trigger that can do everything EXCEPT 1 lb. precision hair triggery, this gets my vote.

Sure this is a deal, but not this into the build AR deal yet, may come soon. I have a stripped lower and a lower kit so guess it might be time to look at the at the Laure etc.

Tkx for the input.

I recently bought a velocity trigger as well. It’s good but I’m my opinion the Larue is better.

Itís super easy to install a non-drop-in trigger. MBT is the best deal on the market right now. But if you insist on drop in, I vote CMC. Theyíve been going on sale lately for $130ish

CMC are really good. I have 2 POF triggers in my AR's and really like them. Primary Arms has sales on them from time to time for around $120ish.

Roger, installing a trigger is not bad at all. Youtube it. If you can thread new laces on your numbing boots, you can do this. I promise.

Another vote for the MBT. I have two geissele SSA triggers, and swapped one out for the larue because the reset is more positive. The geissele has a slightly better pull, but for the price of the MBT, it's a winner.

Didn't see anyone mention it... I bought an Elftman 3lb single stage. Smooth, crisp, audible reset. I like it so far. Bought it for around $150. They also have an adjustable single stage that'll get you down to 2.25lbs.

I like the CM single stage trigger, but it just does not get it done for me compared to Geissele. Having said that, Trigger Tech diamond has outperformed Jewell on my bolt guns and the offer for AR's if very nice. I hate to send my money across the border but those ice cold hockey freaks have checked a few boxes in the trigger department for me.

That is exactly what I concluded when I asked this question. I ended up with Velocity because it is what I could afford and it is miles better than stock

Velocity for me. Have them on 3 different guns. Only issue ever is the odd ftf on 7.62x39 steel case junk. Hammer hit is a bit light for the mil spec hard primers. I polished a stocker for that one. It is better, but still stiff.
