Also if you want include spring, buffers & buffer spring combinations. Dont give me all the products that you've heard works, give me the stuff you have & swear by!

Thanks,
Norm

First, practice with the standard trigger untill you get good enough to notice the difference.

I have the Geissele SD-3G for rapid fire, SD-E for controlled bench. OEM triggers suck after using the Geisseles...and KIDD 10/22 TG!

I've only dry-fired the Geissele SSA, but it felt ridiculously fast.

I have a ssae and a ssa by Giselle both are lighter and break clean compared to a standard trigger. If your main focus is follow up shots maybe look at there super 3 gun trigger.

Worried about gunfighting? Stock trigger.
Target shooting is a different story.

Hell yeah I got the SD-3G too. Travis Haley has this on his self-defense AR15 setup as well as the late John Noveske on his 300BLK AR.

Nice guys thanks.... was thinking the same thing....but Standard brings up a good point and a good question have you "seen" the Geissele fail or faulter in your experience with it.

AR Gold trigger works the best for ME. I have owned Timney, JP, Jewell, and have buddies who have Geissele and for me the AR Gold has the shortest reset and the best "feel" of all AR triggers I have used. Think REALLY good 1911 trigger.

Double taps, long shots....waaayyyyyy easier with a great trigger.

If I did not have AR Gold, I would use Geissele or JP.

Take care,Stan

Standard trigger works the best. Like many said, practice....then when you got it down practice some more. When your confident you really have it down, practice some more. Once you........you get the point..

ALG tuned by Giselle makes an excellent Mil-Spec trigger

The perfect combo is my stock trigger and my trigger finger.

I can't imagine you would be disappointed with the Wilson Combat TTU 3G trigger. It's outstanding. Zero takeup. Crisp clean break. Incredibly short reset. It very much reminds me of a fine 1911 trigger.

Is it "the best?" Not sure. It's gotta be in the the top 5 or top 3. Use your GoogleFu and see what folks have to say about it. Install was also a breeze. True drop in part.

It's a bit pricey though. But their stuff is never cheap. I got mine for $50 off on their Black Friday sale.

This, if you're worrying about being in a gun fight then a stock trigger is enough if you're worried about target practice a better trigger maybe warranted.

Probably best to seek someone local or somebody at the range that will let you try their lower (trigger). Remember not all ranges will let you work a trigger to it's, well actually it is almost always the shooter's limit.

Everyone has opinions, often you read "this x rocks! I can't wait to go out and shoot it." This I find bazar.

I have several triggers by Geissele, Jewell, Timney, JP, Jarad, CMG 2-stage and a couple smithed. Personally, and it is only my opinion, on the AR, I prefer the Geissele. I like the straight blade SDE 2~stage for trying to get my best groups and as a general all around trigger. I also like my straight blade 3G for dumping rounds, it is so fast that some people they end up bump firing due to the quick reset. Not sure you'd want something like the 3G for a defense gun. Any trigger set up properly should work for that.

Springs and buffers? It would not make any sense for anyone to answer such a generic question. Everything on your setup from ordnance to grease is tuned by the buffer and spring.

Anyway, good luck.

This - http://www.jprifles.com/buy.php?item=JPS3.5

Good luck replacing any parts with a trigger pack. Not saying anything mentioned above is bad. I've shot Giessele and Timney and they are sweet. With this you retain your oem parts with only a spring replacement which is lighter than a 6-7pd pull. Couple this replacement with a q-tip and mothers polishing compound(10min) and you may come to realize that for less you can have more. Just my .02.

I tried the yellows and had a first shot FTF...first and only one.

Those came right out, stock springs went in and the issue went away for the rest of the day. Maybe the MS primers on XM193, but I want it to fire no matter what.

The Geissele's use a full power hammer spring. The geometry has been enhanced to achieve the lighter, crisper trigger. Pricey but well worth it, IMHO.

I love my sd-3g for spitting rounds on target and double tapping, but I also use a stock milspec and fully trust it

Geissele SD-C, like the 3 gun, but better for non gaming use IMO.
