Default Single vs Two stage Trigger

Iím looking for an upgraded trigger for my .300 BLK AR pistol. I canít decide whether to get a single or two stage trigger. What are yíalls thoughts?

The two triggers I am looking at in particular are the Larue Mbt two stage and the CMC 3.5 lb single stage. Also my budget is about $150 max.

Thanks guys.

Never shot a CMC, but I own a Larue and love it.

I have a BTE single stage trigger. I've shot several rifles with different two stage in them and didn't care for them much. It all depends on the person but I'd get the CMC single stage trigger between those two choices. I don't like taking up any kind of slack in a trigger.

Iíve shot I think every configuration of CMC

I prefer 2 stage. Take up slack getting ready for the shot then brake it when needed.

Check out Velocity triggers. They should fit your needs and budget.

I have a CMC in my AR and love it. They are the leader in "low cost" aftermarket triggers. That said Velocity has come on the market and while I have never shot one everyone I talk to loves them and they are lower in cost to CMC.

A good single stage is never a bad option. I run a CMC 3.5lb in one of my rifles and am happy with it.

I actually prefer a two stage for precision shooting on ARs. For the money the Rock River $99 (I think) is hard to beat. Geissele makes good products as well just usually more expensive.

I have both and they are both great triggers. Most of my rifles have the 3.5 flat trigger from CMC. I like the flat trigger, as I feel I can consistently get my finger in the same spot time and time again. I use them for both long range and 3gun.

Single vs. two stage is really just about personal preference IMO.
I have a Hiperfire Hipertouch 24C (now called "Competition" and it is perfect.

I have the CMC single stage 3.5 in one of my lowers. I will soon replace the others with the same trigger as the cash is available.

Help me understand a 2 stage trigger. I never have used one. Does it have an easy pull, going into a slightly harder pull? Or the opposite? Can't see it being hard then easy.

Two-stage triggers just give you a clear indication of when they are going to break by going through the "wall." Some people like it... even rave about it... like anything, they'll tell you it's the only way to go, what will work for you, etc. My opinion is that it's purely personal preference. I know when my single stages will break without the take up/creep designed into them. Some like the feedback of the take up... some don't.
The stages are described individually, but they are additive.
Example:
Stage 1 - 1.5 lbs
Stage 2 - 0.5 lbs
Total pull weight - 2.0 lbs.

That's what I thought. Couldn't imagine being heavy, then light.

I have a geissele ssa, larue, LMT 2 stage, cmc single stage 3.5 and a single stage JP 3.5 I believe. I would stay away from LMT out of this group, my favorite is the single stage JP followed by the cmc. I’ve shot 2 stage for years but always come back to my single stage.

This is my favorite trigger in an AR15 platform. It is super smooth.
