Default AR15 standard trigger pull???

Hey everybody,

I'm sorry to waste your time, but google isn't helping me find this information, which I imagined would have been easy to find.

Anyways,
What's the weight of pull for a standard/milspec AR platform weapon?

I want to upgrade and want something obviously lighter, not barely. Shooting out a few hundred yards isn't ideal with a heavy single stage trigger.
Help and suggestions are appreciated. I'm not a gunsmith so a drop-in would be nice.

Thanks

8.5lbs per training manual. ARMY TM 9-1005-319-23&P download it.

Keep this around for other inevitable questions later on.

I just got a Geissele SSA trigger and it's pretty sweet. It's a 2 stage trigger at 4.5lbs total. There are other triggers that are lighter for different applications. Installation was easy as well. Took me about 10 minutes. Check them out:

Timney makes nice drop in ones for black rifles that will be lower than the factory trigger weight.

7 pounds on my Colt measured with a Lymann. Very crisp, though.

$185 for a Timney isn't bad, but when you factor in their handling fee and shipping, the price is driven right back up to $200. They can be had elsewhere for $185 shipped.

+1 on the Timney

I went with a drop in Timney have zero regret on the money spent. It depends on your shooting needs though. I like the single stage feel and it breaks like glass while others like the take-up of a two stage. I would recommend KNS pins as the unit is held in with your original trigger pins and a set of set screws applying upwards pressure.

I know some people who run them, but the prices aren't appealing. I also don't know enough to install a whole trigger system, that's why I favor drop-ins.

If you can do a drop in you can do a Geissele, the install takes 2 minutes.

As with hundreds of other products, they probably do NOT have that part in stock.
