I just received my Spikes stripped lower today and I'm going with the enhanced lower kit from Spikes and wanted to go with this trigger but don't know anything about them......Help are they good triggers?

I use a Timney in my Rem-700 bolt gun, and my 338, both are great triggers.


How much do they want?

I really think if I was going to an aftermarket AR trigger, I'd look hard at an SSA/SSA-E/High Speed or such from Geissele

I have a Geissele SD3G and it is superb. I can't comment on the Timney but I can say I'll never buy another aftermarket trigger from anyone other than Geissele.

I put one of these in mine http://www.jprifles.com/1.4.8.1_ezt.php You can adjust it to ďANYĒ pull you like from heavy to very light. No creep and brakes like glass.

What kind of hooting will you be doing. Recommendation sort of depends on the use.

Geissele would be my general recommendation.

After doing a lot of research and reading tons of reviews I have decided to go with this trigger for my Spikes AR 15 build:wavey:

To me 3lbs is on the light side. I am very very happy with my SSA.

For serious use the Geissele's the only non-factory AR trigger i even consider.

You will have a hard time finding a better unit....

Iím not knocking Timney because Iíve never owned one so donít take this the wrong way. Itís just a question and statement no more no less.

Are Timney triggers adjustable from 0 to 5 + lbs. The PJ is and for the prices you get the adjustable trigger assemble, adjustable ambe selector switch and anti-walk pins. I used my old pins and selector just because I wanted to keep things as close to original as possible, but the trigger is truly everything they say it is.

That might be a little on the light side for some people in a non-precision gun. SD-C would be worth a look.

This. The SSA has enough resistance/trigger movement to allow good control under stress, while offering a clean break for precise shots. They also have a great rep.

For target work, I can see the merit of an adjustable trigger. IMHO, when playing for real, I'd avoid such things. Screws can, and do, come loose.
Your mileage, of course, may vary.

I'll second the Geissele trigger. I have one in my Bushmaster Predator and love it!

As far as Timney goes, I have one in my .308 bolt gun and it is far better than the stock Remington trigger. No slop and it breaks like a glass rod at 2.5 pounds. If their AR triggers are anything like their bolt gun triggers, It should be great.

I'm thinking about a new trigger for my M&P. I like the Timney. What is the consensus on the Chip McCormik triggers?

I also run a geissele - not sure which one, it's been a couple years since I bought it. It is a pleasure to shoot.

It's a good trigger and contrary to popular beliefs pops milspec primers just fine. I had an issue with the last one I got, hammer looked like a file it was so rough. They replaced two before I got one that was of the same quality as my previous purchases from them. I took alot of **** complaining about it on here and a few other sites but it seems they have ironed out that issue since so I guess it was worth it. Having said that it is water under the bridge and I am very satisfied with there performance on all the ones I have(3).........:wavey:

Why is that?

Better quality control and better heat treating.

If this is a SHTF weapon, why not stick with the military-proven single stage? Ultra-light, glass smooth triggers are for precision shooting, not zombie killing.

ETA: I'm not knocking the triggers mentioned here - all are excellent or have reputations indicating they are excellent. I am considering a Geissele myself, but it is for my "long range" 20" bull barrelled AR, not my zombie gun.

After trying both the CMC and Timney, I went with the Timney. Can't wait to hit the range tomorrow.

I put in a reduced power Wolfe trigger spring and disconnector spring to achieve a lighter trigger pull. I haven't had a chance to put any rounds down range yet but I like the way it feels so far. Brought it down to around 4 ish pounds.

I have a Timney in my 3 gun AR and it has been great, easy drop in fit.
