replacement, Not going to do any competition but paper punching and hog hunting. I'd like not to break into the rest of my piggy bank and actually like single stage vs 2 stage but if the price is reasonable I'm ok with a 2 stage. Options or recommendations? There is supposedly a difference between the ar15 vs ar10 platform. I'm assuming the hammer spring for harder primers..

The LaRue MBT-2S (2 stage) is a great trigger for under $90. Some people like it over a $200+ Geissele, others don't.

Definitely one of the best values for an AR trigger, and it comes with two weights of trigger springs if you prefer a heavier trigger.

The single stage version is not the same trigger, and I don't think it's worth the price over a basic coated mil-spec.

I forgot that dd cheaped out some on the V3 and other later models by installing their regular old mil-spec triggers, compared to the V1s and V2s that came standard with Geissele triggers.

While certainly far from the cheapest option out there, I've always been a a huge fan of Wilson Combat's TTUs.

https://shopwilsoncombat.com/T.../productinfo/TR-TTU/

For the more budget conscious, PSA's EPT, ( Enhanced Polished Trigger ) is essentially a mil-spec fire control group that is coated, ( nickel? ) and polished for a smoother trigger pull.

As for the hammer spring, a standard AR15 hammer spring is typically used whether it's in a 7.62 AR or not. As long as one doesn't use crummy/foreign made steel cased ammo with hard primers, you shouldn't have any ignition problems.

I’m pretty sure I have a RRA national match sitting in the garage. I replaced it with a Geissele last year.

If you want it, e-mail me and address, and I’ll drop it in the mail to you

I have one of the RR triggers. They are not bad at usually go on sale for 89 bucks. There's better out there but they are a good value and very workable I think.

My pick when I don't go with the G. I just bought 5 of them since they drop the price to 75.00 when you buy 5

I've put 2 LaRue 2-stage triggers in my latest 2 builds and bought a 3rd for one in the future. I don't think you can go wrong with the current prices on these triggers.

My first AR purchase was an RRA that came with their 2-stage trigger. It's amazing so I purchased a complete kit for one of my earlier AR builds and to me, the trigger I put in my build does not feel as good as the one in the factory rifle. Which led me to trying the aforementioned LaRue trigger.

Larue does make a great trigger, especially at their asking price. Even if money was no object, I’d probably still buy the MBT.

I love this trigger. I’ve been using the BCM PNT as well lately. Feels very similar.

I haven’t bought any triggers for a while but for a shooter I like the RRA’s 2-stage 3.5 pound Varmint and the last time I was looking RRA was blowing out their 2-stage match triggers (4.5 pound) for $60 and I bought several.
Granted, there are better out there but bang for the buck I think RRA is durn good.

I have one of the early DDM4s before there was even a V1 designator, and put in the LaRue MBT-2S trigger fairly recently. Love it so far, especially for the price.

I really like the Larue triggers. I also have a couple Geissele triggers, but the only time to buy them is during the Black Friday sales. They are expensive.

Larue triggers are a great value, any time of the year.

I bought my first LaRue flat faced 2 stage awhile back, you can't beat it for the price.

The Larue MBT2 is my go-to for AR triggers. I have 3, and they've never let me down yet. Can't beat what you're getting with one for the money.
