I just made the investment for this trigger.
Anyone have experience with these? Or anything better?
What is YOUR personal preference for performance of an AR trigger?

I'm no match shooter. This will go on my AR in 6.8 SPC for hunting.

I use a SSA for my 6.8.

I do have one of the adjustable triggers on my prairie dog gun but have found it is too light on the second stage.

I love my SSA-E, I would love to fiddle with an adjustable one some day though. However that said I set up my JP adjustable 3 years ago and haven't touched it since.

I have a JP EZ trigger, and I look at its adjustment as 'set it and forget it' like the above poster. It works very nicely.

I would like to try a Geissele in one of my AR's for comparison's sake. There's so many Geissele triggers to choose from, though!

Virtually everyone on our High Power team uses a Geissele.
While everyone has their preference I don't feel there is anything better out there.
The only thing I have done to mine since setting it up (I bought one at Camp Perry the first year they came out after my Jewell trigger decided to die on me during Nationals) is replace the hammer spring every 5000 rounds which in my case is every year.

I imagine I'll be doing a lot of adjusting and tuning. A 6.8 SPC snap cap would be real handy about now. Midway has some but everytime I go on their site I end up spending way more $$ and forgetting what I went there for in the first place. I'm a weak man. :)

I put a timney in my arp 6.8 and love it. Its brakes super smooth, and was worth every penny. I dont know if id want a two stage on my hunting rifle. Please let us know how you like it.

+1 on the SSA-E

Had some trigger time with the SSA on a friends AR.

It was a must when it came time to do my build.

You can make a snap cap.

Modified a little bit turns into from 3.5 to (2.8-3) lbs lighter trigger pull and I'm very happy.:43:

Geissele is one of the best triggers out there.

That's what I hear. I've never experienced an aftermarket trigger before. I've always had stock parts.
I'm told it makes a big difference. I can't wait.

You don't even need a snap cap in the first place. Dropping the hammer on an AR with an empty chamber is not going to hurt anything.

Just don't drop the hammer on a lower without an upper attached.

For National Match service rifle, I don't think there is a better trigger than the Geissele. Worth every penny.

Just take some spent cases and pop your spent primer out and fill the primer pocket with silicone RTV. Obviously, let it set up.

I installed it today. Wow. What a difference. So smooth. I'm excited to make some long shots.

The good news is that you won't hurt any modern non-rimfire rifle by dry firing it, but a silicone filled primer pocket won't noticably slow down or damp a firing pin. The static pressure on an AR firing pin face is over 1000 psi, the dynamic pressure, when the firing pin hits the primer, is many times higher than that. In order to significantly slow the firing pin you need something probably several orders of magnitude harder than silicone. I seriously suspect that pretty much all of the snap caps out there serve essentially no other function than to make their owners feel better about dry firing.

Was thinking about the same trigger. Look forward to your long range results and impressions.

I didn't realize how much I like me Geissele triggers until I shot one of my ARs with the stock trigger. That will be getting upgraded real soon.
