Another good point. When I was deciding between the the Wilson M2 and H2, I went for the H because it has a heavier pull weight. Definitely something to consider, based on the rifle's purpose.

You're right, my mistake.
I had an ALG GMS in one of my lowers for probably a decade before I popped a G2S in there last week. It's in a bag on my desk, it'll be the trigger that goes in the next lower I build. I have no complaints with it and it's a vast improvement over the parts kit triggers, but I did want to try a Geissele two stage.
Carthago delenda est
I've only got one Geissele trigger, it’s in my no expense spared 6.5 Creedmoor which is JP Enterprise (except stock, grip & trigger) that I built a few years ago, it the SSA-E and while I’m not a trigger connoisseur I don’t see the $200 difference between it and a RRA Varmint trigger.
I’ve got several RRA set-triggers that I’ve bought over the last 10 years or so … I’m used to them so there may be some bias in my post … for the price I might get one of those Centurion triggers, they’re about the same price as the RRA (last time I bought one) and they look like the identical design.
If you really want something you'll find a way ...

I'm really not a "kid" anymore ... but I haven't grown up yet either
I wanted to thank you Para for your informative write up, helped my thinking on the two-stage trigger.
I wasn't even aware of the ALG triggers before this thread, but now the ACT version has me seriously considering it.
I built all my AR's with Timney 3 lbs. single stage triggers. Yeah, I put 3 lbs. triggers on my AR's. So What. I have good trigger discipline and use my safety When I'm not actually shooting at something.
I've stopped counting.

Eaganite - I'm assuming that I know what town your in, but if you are interested, I can meet up with you after the first of the year and I have a lowers with a LaRue trigger, a Timney trigger, and a JP Enterprises trigger that you can try out on your upper and see if any of them seems like something that you have to have.

I’m not sure if buying from Geissele is the way to go but the ALG stuff is on sale for 15% off right now.
I ordered a LPK with the ACT trigger group. Thanks for the advice.
And the SSS & SSA-E trigger groups are 30% off.

I'm pretty sure you you do, you must live in the area. Thanks for the offer, I do appreciate it. But like mark123, after reading Para's post, bought the ACT trigger.
I haven't had a chance to shoot it yet, but just putting it through its paces (dry fire) I must say a huge improvement over what came with the rifle.

I have the ALG ACT in my Sig M400, and love it.

Larue MBT-2S best value for your money hands down.
|I have not yet begun
I have currently a Timney, MBT and Geissele in use.
In order of which I like best it’s: Geissele, MBT, Timney.
The only one I paid full price for was the Timney.
ALWAYS wait for a holiday sale!

I have that exact trigger in a build I did, very happy with it, nice crisp break. Dropped right in, great price and quality for a one piece trigger.
My ALG ACT came in today.
So much nicer than stock milspec that comes in the LPKs.
Zero creep, very smooth break. However, the reset is really gritty and I can’t figure where it’s happening. I’m sure it’ll wear in over time but if anyone knows what I’m missing, drop some knowledge.
That's probably going to be something with the disconnector where it contacts the hook on the hammer. Wipe off and lubricate those two surfaces.
Starting at 1:04 in this video. Trigger reset shown at the 1:10 mark.
Also, check to see if the disconnector spring is seated properly.
I have the ALG QMS and PSA EPT. The EPT is better. The QMS is smooth with almost no take-up but is noticeably heavier than the EPT. The EPT is smooth as butter for a milspec trigger.

Thanks. The two surfaces are smooth and lubed. I’ll check the disconnector spring. The only other place I haven’t checked is the hole in the disconnector that the trigger pin goes through.
Edit - it was the disconnector spring. It was in a little bit sideways so it was rubbing the inside of the trigger. Good call!
I was checking out some long-winded write ups concerning rifle parts, diminishing returns and bang-for-buck and came across this reddit post:
The gem in the mire was this tidbit concerning the topic at hand:
I see the same thing in the music gear forums. Some often quoted “knowns” are dubious but treated as gospel.
I tried several triggers including one of the Geissele triggers and settled on the Timney drop in as the one I liked best.
Now I don't claim to have any knowledge of this but....... Is it possible that with the price reduction came a design change?
Edit: Response to mark123 LaRue post.
Apparently, there is some drama between geissele and Larue. The price drop was some sort of affront.
