    Drop in AR triggers?

    I don't think I've ever seen any feedback based on long term usage of drop in trigger units like these .

    I've got one in what will be my "good" carbine but it doesn't even have enough rounds to be broken in yet, much less any kind of serious evaluation of the trigger. Are they acceptable for a duty type setup or are they best for gaming/range use only?

    I dont know about those specifically... I have the ALG ACT in 3 of my ARs and like it quite a bit for the price. Basically a smooth, rolling GI trigger.

    Have LaRue MBT-2S in my other two ARs (scoped). Definitely best bang for your buck for a precision AR trigger IMO.

    I've got an ACT in the parts box and it's my Plan B if the Rise isn't a great idea. I'd forgotten about LaRue. Is that the trigger they sell with a "gotta have it NOW" price and a cheaper "I'm willing to wait" price?

    Alg act here. I love mine. My buddy who ran a two stage geissele tried it and was super impressed. He actually pulled the two stage and Installed the alg. As said above itís just a simple single stage with a clean break.

    I have seen some of the fancy triggers fail miserably in high round guns. Geissele seems to be a safe bet for a high end two stage that will be reliable.

    Do you recall which fancy triggers and what sort of round counts?

    Larue MBT is equivalently performing to the 2 stage Geissele triggers if youíre wanting 2 stage.

    Larue has a video of running a durability test rig on their trigger up in the hundreds of thousands of cycles IIRC. Their construction is out of solid barstock tool steel of an exceptional alloy, then fully machined out - no chance for casting inclusions or mold flow flaws like with Geissele.

    Larue also doesnít take ex-servicemen to court like a certain guy (G)

    If you want to spend more money than a parts kit trigger, Iíd skip over the ACT and other 50-70 triggers and do the Larue MBT. I love mine!

    I have 2 MBTs, an ALG, and several Geissele triggers. The MBT is a great deal, and I have them on my home and camp defense guns. If cost was not a concern, the SSAE is my pick for best AR trigger. The SD3G is an awesome single stage as well.

    I prefer all of them to any drop module.

    I like the more open design, which allows clearance of debris, like blown primers, etc.

    I have a couple of Geissele triggers in a couple Colts.

    While they are uniformly excellent, I would not buy them today with the Larue MBT on the market.

    The MBTs I have played with are 90-95% as good (those are purely speculative/pulled out of my ass figures) for 50% the price.
