Is a stage 2 trigger for a AR really worth the $100+ price tag?

2 stage, and if your shooting for accuracy then yes.

IF its just a desert blaster then, no.

Are you taking about the RRA MN trigger at $100+? Shop around and you can get it under $90.

ABSOLUTLY! I bought one for my AR. Like it so much I bought two more for the others.

A trigger up grade on an AR is well worth the 100+. I just picked up 2 single stage Chip McCormick triggers for nearly 200 each and i don't think i will ever go back to a standard parts kit trigger ever, dude, just do it!!!!

Stock triggers for ARs are heavy, have tons of creep and poor feel.

The NM 2-stage goes a LONG way to fix that. It's worth its cost. If you buy it included with the LPK the cost is less.

YES, it actually worth $300.

I never knew how true that was until I fired an AR with a two stage trigger. This became even more apparent when I setup my AR22 with a standard trigger, and got a Timney 3lb single stage trigger for my .223 AR. Without the recoil of the .223 (such as it is), it's even more obvious how bad the AR trigger is. When you go from that to a precise match trigger the difference is even more obvious.

I'm gonna have to upgrade all my AR triggers now.

I have a Timney on a precision build. I thought the rifle was accurate before with a RRA 2-stage. Now... Oh my...

Nice trigger.

Triggers don't matter if you're standing and blasting, but they're all the difference in the world when you're shooting for tiny targets, long distances and tight groups.

It doesn't matter if it is a can blaster or for precision, all ARs should have at least a NM 2 stage trigger if not something better.

Putting a standard trigger in your AR is like putting a 4 cylinder in your Porshe.

Everyone of my rifles has at least a 2 Stage NM Trigger in it.

All of my AR's Have RR NM 2 stage triggers and they are well worth the price.

Yes the 2 stage RRA NM trigger is worth every penny.

Yeah the standard trigger sucks. I had one in my first AR clone. Put a RRA NM 2 stage in and wow. Thats in my plinker that I just go blast rounds through. I just got a Timney 3lb. for my other build and WOW. better thant the RRA NM. I plan on putting the JP in my other lower.

I also changed all of my AR's over to the RRA 2 stage trigger. Hands down.....well worth the $$.

What is the cheapest "good" two stage trigger? I've got the highest end trigger I can think of (Timney 3lb), now what other options are there so I don't break the bank replacing my other triggers?

Thanks for the advice. I realize that you get what you pay for, so would going for a less than top tier stage 2 such as the RRA one be a bad idea or is it still a great enough improvement over the standard trigger?

the RRA NM, is prety much the best bang for your buck, I would say, for any AR part

$100 RRA NM take you from 0 to 8

From 8 to 10(max), you would need to put in another $200

So, for limited budget, RRA would be your best bet

Now, if $$ is not an issue, then go for the $300 ones.... Geiselle or KAC or alike....

If you don't mind spending a bit over $200, I would suggest the Jewell Trigger. (that is, if you are going for accuracy) I put them on ALL my long range precision builds. The RRA is fine, I put them in all my AR's (non-precision). And I love 'em. BUT, once you install a J.T. & learn how to properly tune it................you will have entered a new world of trigger feel/quality. The RRA compared to a Jewell is like a Corvette compared to a Lamborghini. Dead serious.:)

Yes, Yes, Yes, the 2 stage trigger gives shooting a whole different experience. . . you can do actual target shooting.

Alright, thanks everyone for your advice and car metaphors. I drive a Ford POS and love it. I guess I have to man up and buy the trigger.

The 2-stage trigger also has the Bill Wiese Stamp Of Approval (TM). :)

One additional point about the 2-stage trigger is that it has no adjustments and thus there are no tiny little screws etc to get out of whack.
