AR-15 triggers

I am in the market for a aftermarket trigger for my ar-15. I have reviewed some of the previous posts regarding ar-15 triggers.
A bunch of people recommend jewell two stage triggers. However, I have read that this trigger is not recommended for some ammo (military surplus) due to force needed to impact the primer. Also some people report the adjustment screws walking out and needing to be constantly readjusted. I sometimes run a 22lr conversion in my ar so not sure if this would have issues for this trigger.

My usage would benefit from adjustability of the trigger pull but I am open to non-adjustable triggers. The RRA match 2 stage trigger is also a possibility. Also, if anyone has any used aftermarket triggers I am interested.

RRA's 2 stager is quite nice, and cheap. Geissele makes an AWESOME trigger and he's a really cool guy too, absolutely worth the money.

IMHO for a zombie gun, train with a standard shitty Semi-auto trigger, should your fancy rifle go down in a firefight and you need to pick up a rifle off a dead guy, odds are very good that he's gonna be running stock/cheap/basic equipment as it's the most common.

For a range piece, that Geissele is top titties.

Yes, all fixed. Ended up drilling out the pins. Took it to Buffalo range last weekend and had a minor gas block alignment issue I was able to fix it there and then it was working great minus the crappy trigger now.

I agree with the RRA triggers. They have a nice product.

I like the RRA 2 stage NM trigger on mine but then again the only comparison I made was with the stock DPMS trigger I have on the other AR. Ofc. Ponch. how's that JP differ from the RRA NM?

Interesting. Great price and better pull weight than the RRA. The standard option includes multiple springs for different pull weights. I think this may be the winner. Now to see if its offered cheaper anywhere else...

After looking at the steps involved in the JP install I might not go this route. I heard good things about Bill Springfield and I am thinking on sending my lower to him. Since I have never done a trigger, and at $50 return shipping included its hard to pass up. Yes, I know this doesnt include aftermarket components other than the springs. People are reporting a 7 day door to door turnaround time. He does other firearms too.

My brother acually bought the a set instead of sending his to B. Springfield, he liked it but he said he liked my 2 stage better.
