Thinking about doing the 15 Minute Practical Trigger Job for the AR-15 (http://www.sargenthome.com/15_Minute_AR_Trigger_Job.htm) to hold me over until I buy another Geisselle.

Any good or bad experiences with this particular trigger job?

I bent the trigger spring but didn't cut the hammer spring. It's a bit lighter than standard trigger after. So far so good.

Yes, i did it and it made a world of difference. The amount of pull before the hammer release is still there, but it is def. a lot smoother and lighter.

The Good: Well obvious better trigger and you can replace the spring if you don't like it.

The Bad: Still not as good as the 100+ dollar triggers, but that's expected.

I have done a couple of these with much improvement. Cheap and easy. :D

When you guys did it, did you cut the trigger spring like it says or just bend it up?

I cut them.

Well I just did it to one of my lowers, (Cut the hammer spring, bent the trigger spring) and it certainly at least feels smoother, now I got another excuse to hit the range. :D

Just did it on mine and it definitely helps. I still need to do a little more polishing though.

I did one and it came out good. The next one I did the pull was lighter but it still felt really gritty. I sent those parts to Bill Springfield and had them reworked. It's fine now. Mark
