Geissle SSA vs G2S Login/Join

The SSA is laser etched and every trigger is magnetic particle tested, the G2S is I think the same trigger without etching and only batch tested. The SSA is $245 and the G2S is $170. Any reason to buy the SSA over the G2S for $75 more?

I think Brownell's has the same trigger as the G2S called the B-G2S-E for $159.99.

Either way, if you can be patient, you can often obtain the SSA for between 159-170 during seasonal sales. Easter was the most recent, but I would almost guarantee it'll be available for that price at either Memorial Day or Father's Day. Maybe sooner. I have an SSA and a G2S, but don't have enough experience to give definitive comparison.

Reading on other forum, I ran across someone who got a defective one of the G2S, but it the defect was removed and it worked. So maybe for less money spent, you don't get the same level of inspection and have a greater chance of getting a defective part in the assembly.

Not waiting on a sale, I ordered a G2S yesterday.

You will routinely see SSAs and/ or SSA-Es on sale around $188. Wait for the sales

David W - Thanks for that link. I ended up getting a complete lower with an SSA-E installed for $299 plus shipping.

Been curious about this myself. If it's indeed the same trigger and you're just spinning the wheel on a defect making it through, then the G2S on sale is a stellar deal. I picked up two last year for I think a hair under $90 each. If anything ever goes wrong with them, Geissele should take care of me, so I'm not that worried about it.

It seems the difference is less QA (batch checked vs each trigger) and a different hammer pin seat while the ALG ACT Trigger is Mil-Spec heavy with a nickel-ish treatment.

As of this post the SSA and SSA-E comes up at $245. The GC and G2S are $159.99.


Per the OP: I was buying Geissele Triggers since day 1. SSAs started around $150 IIRC and as prices increased with their popularity I bought a used S2S (not a typo) for $90 (MSRP was $125ish) which was supposed to be the budget version of the SSA back in 2011ish. I can't tell any difference between the two.

Well shoot…that was a quick sale. I ordered last night at the $159 price. I’m sure it will be back on sale soon. Maybe Memorial Day?
