Default Trigger for new grendel

I took my new Grendel upper to the range today and was pretty happy with it. 1 MOA when I did my part. The trigger on my lower is another story. It creeps, it stacks. feels about 1% better than my old mosin nagant. So I am looking to upgrade. I was thinking Timney Targa, but mainly because Ive had such good luck with the timney bolt action drop ins. I've never bought an aftermarket AR trigger.


Main purpose for the gun is pigs plus a little target shooting.

I appreciate any wisdom you can share.

Pick your flavor of Timney, Triggertech, CMC, Hyperfire, etc.. Stock AR triggers are rough, you'll be happy with any mentioned here.

CMC is where I’d look.

I have Geissele Match triggers in two of my guns. I really like them. I have also changed out the springs, which made them even better. They are adjustable, so you can get rid of some creep and over travel.

Now, some years ago, I found a dealer at a gun show, that had a bunch of variations of CMC triggers, set up in their demos. I found one of those CMC triggers, that I really loved. Most had fairly heavy trigger pulls, but I found one, that was great, but I long ago forgot what model trigger it was.

A buddy of mine has a Elf trigger in one of his guns, that I like.

I have one gun with a Hyper Fire trigger, it's not bad, but not a match trigger. I have that trigger in my 458 SOCOM.

I used to have a couple of Rock River two stage triggers. With some polishing and some lighter Wolf springs, they worked great for a short time, before having problems. If you ever have a Rock River trigger, don't try to polish it, waste of time. It will wear very quickly afterwards.

Larue MBT, i have 5 i think. I prefer them over most of the drop ins ive tried. And $80 is hard to beat.

Geissele is the best.
I have a hyperfire hypertouch 24C with the light springs that’s very nice as well.


A lot of the above mentioned ones are great too but not on the level or price lol of geissele.

I need a larue MBT for an SBR. Great trigger for $80.
I haven’t been impressed with CMC

CMC 3.5 lb, single stage in mine. Not looking for match grade. Best hunting trigger I've ever pulled!

Geissele, Triggertech or JP. I prefer JP, but the Triggertech is excellent.

Geissele has had a black Friday sale the last few years if you can wait.

As mentioned above, LaRue has a great product for the price. I ended up putting them in all of mine.

Geissele is the only option for me. I recently dropped a TriggerTech adaptable into a rifle for a buddy, and ran it for a few days. I really liked it, but then I got behind my SDE again and forgot all about the TT. I run TT in my bolt guns though.

Bang for your buck - Larue
Top of the line - Geissele

I've got two Geissele's and a larue, and I wouldn't buy a geissele again because I don't see its improvements being worth that much more money. Personal opinion of course, I'm not shooting competitions with them.

Just put a cmc 2.5 in my AR and like it especially when compared to the stock trigger.

Thank y'all. Think I may give the larue a shot. If it's not want a want, I'll move it to the boys' gun and try again.

I really like CMC but run POF in my Ar's mostly due to price. POF has been easier for me to find with really good sales.

Man, you're a minute or two late. I already ordered a trigger and for the heck of it, another mount.
