View Full Version : AR-10 Triggers, What are my options?

09-22-2008, 10:41 PM
Hey guys,

I'm building my first of two AR-10 rifles. I'm trying to decide on a trigger to use on my first. I'm building a 20" a4 "battle rifle" to use in tactical competitions. It will roll a NF scope, PRS, and has a free-floating SIR system. A giselle seems too nice for this but I'll be installing one on an F-class AR-10 later. Armalite's National match two stager seems a bit stuff for my liking 4.5lbs on the 2nd stage. What are my options for something with a lesser pull weight? How does Noveske compare? I see CWS has 2 stg Noveske LPKs in stock.

I like the Armalite trigger. I had no idea Noveske had their own trigger. I thought about checking into it but I thought since they carried and used all Armalite stuff, thats all it would be.

Good question, Tag on this thread.

I dont' know if these people make triggers for the ar 10 platform but. www.jprifles.com, Accuracy Speaks, Jard, Timminy. Basicly take a walk through the Brownells catalog.

Or go to a good gun smith and have him take it down to what ever you want or what is safe which ever comes first.

Use your favorite trigger with an AR10 hammer spring.

The Knight SR-25 trigger/hammer system is what I use in my AR15's. It's a great system and is two stage.

It comes with two springs for release, one provides a 2.5 lbs first stage and a 2 lb second stage. The other spring provides a 2.5 lb first stage and a 1 lb second stage.

It's really moosemeat!!

The giselle and KAC are the same design--one is just harder to find than the other. I just read an interesting technical comparison of the two.

No, the geissele and Kac are not the same design. Use a geissele and start crying, as your wallet will be mysteriously empty afterwords.

I have 3 geissele triggers. will end up with a couple more. :90:

Geissele is the only way to go for a two stage AR10 trigger. A little more complicated to setup (they provide great instructions BTW) but once complete, it is the sweetest trigger you'll ever shoot.

I just don't think about the cost of the 5 I've installed! If you order from RainierArms.com, they also throw in the extra match spring set allowing you to go with a match, a DMR, or a Service configuration. I have DMRs setup in all of mine.

My N6 has a Geissele DMR trigger. One of the best choices I've made this year.

I Just ordered another for my N4.
