Default Optimal trigger weight for Reflexive Fire

Search on this site sucks ***, so question for other tactical guys out there... Opinions on good trigger weight for shooting on the move. Thinking about dropping in a Timney 3# or 4# but I want to get other peoples expirences with Reflexive Fire, House drills, patroling with such light triggers... Any info is welcome. If any one knows of a thread already talking about this, please send link!

You should consider your liability level and extent of training.

From my personal perspective, robustness and strength are my priorities for a trigger for duty use.

I'm not sure I would be comfortable with a single stage 3# trigger for any non-controlled environment. Timneys can also double, if they're not set-up just right.

Moving to a two-stage trigger can enhance the level of safety.

Honestly?

Work on riding your trigger reset with a stock trigger before you start dropping bucks on a hsld competition trigger. Plenty'o SWAT guys run their shoot on the move quals with stock AR triggers all day long.

If you are intending to use this for "social work" stick with a quality stock trigger... Reliability is the main thing

CQB is one thing but I have to ask, what kind of "patrolling" are you envisioning?

^^what he said^^


It really depends on you. Personally I go with RRA 2 stage match. I found it to be a GREAT compromise especially for "training purposes". I have seen a number of guys in classes, myself included have failures with "box type" drop in triggers....My failure was with a single stage ChipMc. I think fouling/dirt was to blame.

+1 I have a Timney 3 or 3.5lb single stage trigger in my .308 AR and it will double every once in a while. Not too often...but it does happen. Im actually looking for a RRA 2-stager myself. I hear good things

A Geissele service rifle trigger would be good.
