Default Recommend me an AR trigger for less than $200

I have looked at some hyperfires and others, but looking to get a decent drop in trigger, but I don't want the trigger to be 30% of what the gun costs, which would be the case with a Giselle.

Other options?


For hunting specifically, what is preferred single stage or 2?

Most will recommend Geissele or CMC.

CMC you will be able to get for under $200 no problem. They are $167.50 on Midway now, and I have seen them for cheaper. I have no experience with CMC, but know they are recommended a lot.

I have the Geissele SSA-E trigger in mine. It can be picked up for about $240.
I bought mine from Palmetto State Armory for and it came with 10 Pmags. I didn't need to mags, so I sold them, basically only paying $150 for the Geissele trigger. They still have this deal on their website if you are interested.

As far as single stage vs. 2-stage, I prefer the 2-stage for hunting, It gives you that last second chance to correct your aim if you need.
Really though, I don't think it makes too big of difference anyways if you have a good trigger with a light trigger pull.

No I have not tried every trigger on the market but have probably tried more than most people know exist.

Here is the list that I have tried on one of my ARs or have shot on another's.

RRA
Bushmaster stock
Ruger stock
DPMS
Jard
Stoner (dangerous would rather go without a trigger than use this one)
Del-ton
Timney
CMC
JP
Geisselle

Once I found Geisselle I never looked back.

BTE is what I have. I honestly can't say what's the best. All I know is I like a single stage trigger.

I have a $135 Velocity in one of mine and it works well. I have a Timney and a CMC too and they are good but the Velocity is just as good. They always include some kind of goodie with your order as well.

I'm a big Geissele fan but the triggers I use are over $200. I'm really interested in trying a Trigger Tech trigger, though. That's the one I'd recommend trying - it's $185

I'm waiting on a Larue MBT for $125, I did a lot of research and they seem to be considered equal/better than the Geissele SSA-E for a precision rifle.

My other 2 AR's have $30 PSA polished triggers with $10 JP Enhanced reliability springs. They aren't match grade, but both are miles better than mil-spec, and one of them is fantastic.

I prefer my MBT over my SSA-E. The very positive reset and wide trigger tipped the boat (plus it's $125, though I got mine for cheaper). Trigger pull is very similar.

Geissele SSA-E on all my AR's. Watch for the sales that they run just about every holiday. They are usually about $180 or so.

X2 and x3 for both of my ARs, for hunting it's simple, about 4lbs and breaks clean.. I got mine for $90-95 or so. I'll put one on my next AR too!
