Just installed my mbt.
I love the well defined wall before the second stage
My ssa is great, but the mbt has a better feel so far.

I'm glad I asked this question. My previous assumption that Timney would be a popular choice e seems to be wrong. I also watched the 30 minute YouTube video by Bill Giselle on his triggers and learned a lot. I'll have a look at the SSA -e as well as the Larue MBT as I think this is probably close to what I need.
I want precision, but not without safety. The NM is probably ruled out, and I do t need the quickness of the SG3.

The SSA is a good upgrade to the USGI trigger if you want something "safer" for standing or moving around. The SSA-E is lighter, and better for the bench. I have both.

I have a Chip McCormick 3 1/2 pound pull in one AR and a Timney 4 pound in another.
My SBR has a TacCon 3 MR just because I had one laying around and didn't want a GI trigger in it.
All are very nice triggers.
Most aftermarket triggers are good and way smoother than a stock GI trigger.

Replacing a trigger on an AR is simple so you should know how to do that anyway if you own one.

I installed one of these triggers in a .308 AR build. Exact copy of the original Krieger-Milazzo trigger, they will even warranty the original K-M triggers. The triggers are adjustable down to 3.5# and break clean. I also have Giessele triggers in AR15 match rifles, both are very excellent triggers.

Thanks from dist1646

I have used a lot of different triggers in my AR's over the years and Geissele is at the top of my list. IMHO, it is the best trigger out there. Geissele also has, bar none, the absolute best warranty service in the business! My next choice would be the Milazzo-Krieger trigger.
In my opinion, there is nothing else that I have used that even comes close to these two.

I've a POF that came with the anti-walk pins - think I paid ~$125.

I have, Palmetto State Armory's Enhanced Trigger and they are really smooth. Although they are still 5-6 lbs, but also only ~$30 (when on sale) these are great for defensive guns where you don't want it too light a pull. I've got three with these (one is an AR-10)

I'm not a NM Traget guy, I'm a CQB trigger puller type guy so I won't throw the money at a really super sweet trigger that might get me into trouble in a bad situation.

Thanks from XUSNORDIE

BEWARE of the RRA 2 stage! They are known to become inconsistent and mushy single stage triggers after as few as 100 pulls. Mine did and you will find more people have had the same problem with a quick internet search. I'm sure you will also find many pleased owners as well though who will think I'm full of it. You get what you pay for.

Options for a superior Mil Spec type trigger pull include:
ALG Combat Trigger and BCM PNT. Excellent triggers. These triggers reduce the pull weight to an excellent 4-6lbs. Both have clean breaks, and excellent quality. They cost around $70 unless they're on sale.
Also, the Right to Bear Enhanced Trigger is a pretty good trigger for about $45.
These are not precision triggers. They are improved mil spec triggers. I've had experience with all three of the above. All three were impressive.
Gieselle SSA and LaRue MBT are nicer and feel great. If you want to spend money on these two you'll be very happy. But, if you just want improved feel, then one of the first three might be right up your alley.

+1, IMHO this is the best trigger I have ever shot! SSA-E

I'm keeping an eye out for a sale on the SSA-e. I'd also consider their match adjustable version as well if a good deal came up, otherwise it will be the SSA-e for me I think.

For target only application I like the Jewell trigger. Easy to adjust and stable. Can be adjusted very light.
