I just bought a RRA lower kit that included a two-stage match trigger. The kit is more than twice the price of the standard kit. Has anyone had experience with this trigger? I hope I don't end up having to buy another Timney after paying the price for a RRA "match trigger".Woo

I have heard good things about them but I bet you'll get a timney! (you always do!) I still have that timney for the howa sitting on top of the gun safe. I should get off my butt and put it in, that stock Howa trigger is a mess. Throw that thing together and let us know!

I've got the Stage 2 setup in the varminter AR that I've yet to build. I've heard great things about the trigger group.

hey woodog if you don't mind me asking, where and how much did do get that kit for. i made up my mind and im also buying the same set up that you just bought. ive been searching around the internet and the cheapest i found it for was 175.00 plus shipping.i wanted to get the timney drop-in trigger but it would make the rifle expensive.

Ten Percent Firearms and I paid a lot more than $175. If the trigger is any good $175 would be a bargain. If the trigger is dog poop, as I fear, you might as well buy the cheap kit and add a Timney. Expensive isn't bad if you want a good shooting rifle. I'll let you know when I pick up the lower an install the trigger after Friday. ARs are way over priced and will probably be higher after the election. You can easily have over $1,500 invested in an AR after you consider all of the "gotta have" options available. You could have a more accurate bolt rifle for less than half the cost. So why do I have, or will have, three ARs? Damned if I know. Because they are there? :rolleyes: Woo

Got a 2-stage trigger on my RRA varmint rifle, it's a nice set up. I can't complain about it, nice and smooth. But I'm sure the Timney is better, it should I believe it cost between $190.00 - $250.00.http://www.midwayusa...rdsReturned2=20

I think Du is talking about the Timney for $175 +S/H. That is about the best price out there. Personally, If I am going to spend an extra $90 or more for the 2-stage trigger, I would just opt for the Timney. Hey, Woo, let me know when you end up not liking that 2-stage and order your Timney. Maybe I will take the 2-stage off your hands. ;)I know why you now have 3 black rifles (well 2 plus a tan one). It's an addiction. Plus, I'm sure you HATE people telling you that you CAN'T do something. That will be the case in the near future. ;( Your just ahead of your time, a forward thinker. :rolleyes:

That's what I wanted to hear. I just pulled out the receipts to see what I paid at Ten Percent Firearms. The standard RRA LPK was $70 and the two-stage kit was $167.83 which after tax is a difference of $104.92. The bullet button and funnel were another $35.00 all of which are going into a Stag lower.I also bought a S&W MP-1 assembled lower, including butt stock, and have a Timney trigger on the way from Carey Custom Rifles for $190. The stock trigger is really bad. If you buy an upper from Dan he charges $175 for the Timney.Woo

I have the RRA two stage NM trigger on my build. The trigger is nice, definately not a Jewell trigger but not bad. I had mine poished, which will prob reduce the life of it but, it feels much better.One warning though, I replaced the small spring to one with a little bit less tension...bad idea.I loaded five rounds, got down behind the rifle on a caldwell BR rest, gently squeezed, and the rifle went full auto and got 3 rounds off before I coulod get my finger off the trigger. I tried twice more and same thing happened...the original spring went right back in.

LOL I can't afford full auto anything!I think with a standard m4 barrel it would have been fun to play with for a but I have a 24 inch 1/12 twist RRA varmint barrel....I doubt they had full auto in mind when they produced it. My luck would be 3 bullets lined up in a row ..stuck in the middle of the barrel.Ron

You're Welcome du9207! I got my Super Varminter in .223 chambering from them but I replaced the RRA stage 2 trigger with a Timney Stage 1 National Match trigger. Much better trigger IMHO!
