Have been lurking around off and on but haven't posted in quite some time. Too much hunting and fishing to do around here. :smiley-outta-here: Anyway I bought a Remmington R25 earlier this year in 243 and love it but hate the trigger. There is just way too much creep for me. Maybe I'm just spoiled by my Savage Accutriggers. Is there any way to fix the stock trigger or I'm open to recommendations on which trigger to replace it with. I want the lightest possible trigger pull with minimal take up or creep.

All I can tell you is there are lots of trigger groups to replace yours.

Does the R-25 use the same trigger group as an AR-15 (I'm guessing it is an AR-10 platform and I've never built one)?? If so, I would recommend:1. Timney 3lb or 4lb Pretty much the nicest trigger out there for AR's. You should be able to pick one up for around $2002. RRA 2-stage National Match trigger. Not as nice as the Timney, but still pretty dang good. They can be found for around $100.I have a 2-stage on primary AR and I really like it. I have shot a bunch of AR's with Timneys and they are SWEET, but for my shooting I couldn't justify the extra $100. I need a couple more triggers for my AR's and I will be getting the 2-stage for them.

MojaveJ, I installed a Timney 3lb single stage trigger on both my R15 and R25 (.308) rifles and find them both to snap like glass. Timney triggers, I believe are the best triggers you can put on an AR-15 based platform. There might be better ones out there but not for the price of the Timney's. Get yourself one if you want the tightest groups possible.

A less expensive alternative is a Bill Springfield trigger. You pull your trigger out (real easy, I could walk you through it if you needed it) and send it to him. He works his magic for about $35 and sends it back to you...it's usually less than a week turnaround. You'll eliminate most of the creep and bring the pulling #'s down. If you don't want to spend the $150-$250, but you want to get great results, this is the way to go. www.triggerwork.net

Thanks to everyone that replied. I had a custom builder look at it and he wanted $300 to replace the trigger group with a 2 stage match trigger which is in a friends ar that he just built for him (all I can say is sweeeeeet) but I can't give up that kind of money right now being laid off. I might go with Flying Bones option for now. Once again thank you to everyone that responded.

Not sure what the "custom builder" is doing......but, you can buy and replace your own 2-stage match trigger for $100. It's not that hard, there are step by step directions at ar15.com.Looks like he is charging $200 for labor.

Hey Bruce, Google timney triggers.... go to best sellers..... click on AR10. Once you have model #, cut and paste to google, hit search, then hit the shopping tab. If that doesnt help, try Midway USA or Brownells.

I've heard there are gunsmiths that can work their magic on triggers for $45.-$60. Somebody mention their names, please.

Gunsmiths can work the trigger over yes and you can buy a timney I have a few timneys and a couple my friend worked over and I like them both.i also like the ability to take the timney out and put it in another ar when i decide to use that 1 for a while.

You could remove the stock trigger group and gently and carefully 'polish' not grind the obvious worn shiny surfaces of the hammer and trigger. Keep the same angle as you see it.I did that with my AR's and my new R-25 in .308 and it takes out the creep but there is still a little bit of travel. You can't get rid of that unless you replace the whole trigger group with a $100 or more set up.How do you like your R-25? I LOVE MINE!!!!
