Only disadvantage I see to a 2 stage trigger is the price!

It's worth it though, buy an RRA 2 stage and you'll see why!!

I don't really even see the purpose of a 2-stage trigger.

2-stage triggers are necessary when there is a minimum trigger pull weight. Try shooting NRA service rifle. When you're standing at the 200 yard line, you'll realize why you need a good 2-stage trigger.

It is also a requirement for the NRA High Power Service Rifle competition.
A very light single stage is good for bench rest shooting IMHO.

I suspect the two stage trigger falls under the "if you don't know why, you don't need it yet" category.

Save your money for ammo and range time until you're so good it you know by experience that it will make a difference.

A 2-stage trigger isn't required. The rules only stipulate that you have a trigger pull weight of 4.5lbs minimum. You could shoot a standard generic single stage trigger if you wanted to. But I don't think you want to be using an 6-8lb single stage. Not fun.

It's all personal preference. You're going to have to try them out yourself and pick which is 'better' for you. I'm sure that's not the answer you wanted, but it's the truth.

The advantage to the 2-stage trigger is that it will lock up sooner or later (probably sooner), leaving the gun unable to fire and thus saving you money on ammunition.

Ask me how I know! Nah, don't.

Meh. 2-stage triggers are no less reliable than a single stage. Look at all those Garands and other military service rifles. Never heard of any trigger problems plaguing those 2-stage triggers.
