Who, if anybody, makes a 1 lb. or less AR trigger? Only those in current production please.
I got a geissele under a pound. Took alittle fingering, but its smooth as shit and light.. I dont remember which model it is though. Damn good trigger..
So impressed I wouldnt buy anothing other.. it was like $230 or something.. wasnt cheap.
You should be extremely careful with super light triggers on any semi-auto. There's lots of slamming and banging going on with the sear surfaces so you can't get too aggressive with the sear engagement and still be safe. I always tell people to open their action and the hammer uncocked hold the trigger back and fully cock the hammer with the other hand. Then release the trigger and the hammer will fall from the safety sear to the sear. It's quite a jolt to some very small surfaces. Reducing them further invites wear and eventually the hammer will start to follow the carrier down and/or it will start to double or worse.
I have the Geissele Hi-Speed Match trigger and love it. Its not under a pound total. Its a two-stage that can be set to 1.5lb first stage and 6oz 2nd stage. Thats where mine is set and its very crisp, consistent and predictable.
I'm not sure if there is a better AR trigger than the Geiselle.
I like my AR Gold better, but I'm no expert...
Not quite under a pound but, I've got two of the Jard adjustable, single stage triggers @ 1.5# ea. and really like them for shooting from the bench.
Thanks for the info. It's for shooting from the bench.
Hi, I also have a Jard trigger in my AR. I like the trigger it is light and crisp with the 1 lb spring. If your shooting from a bench you must get your finger off the trigger with the shot. I have been shooting bolt action with light or set triggers for 55 years and have a habit of breaking the shot and keeping my finger on the trigger. I can't do that with the Jard AR trigger. The recoil will cause unexpected firing, lesson learned.
This applies to the Geissele as well. Lots of unexpected shooting when getting used to it. It's certainly different.
This will be strictly slow fire single shot. Unless it doesn't work out for the bench. Then a coyote gun probably, maybe PD gun.
I've got a Jard trigger in my AR10 its under a pound. Its almost as nice as the Jewell in my Remington bolt gun.
