Any recommendations?

Single Stage.

Two stage?

Right now I'm considering a Timney two stage.

I have used a lot of different ones and these are very nice and adjustable and modular and very easy to install. Crisp, no creep!

2 stage first class materials. I like the one I have and haven't found anything better even those 4x the price. I will buy more.

on a budget the ALG ACT (advanced combat trigger) it is all mill spec but hardened plated and polished it breaks quite nice but is not reduced weight just smooth with a clean break.

the PSA EPT (enhanced polished trigger) is also better than stock and decent but not reduced weight springs

I have a Rise Armament in my 6.5 Grendel. No complaints for the money, about $125 and much better than stock.

I had trigger rework on my Ruger Tactical Mini-14. Ask to have it set at 3.5 lbs. I shot it when I got it back.

WOW! Nice clean break. The suggestion, was never have one under 3#. Too much chance of a take off at full auto.

I don't remember who it was that did it. Any suggestions as to who that might be?

I don't know who it is however

it isn't full auto , you are pulling the trigger every time and it is tide to poor trigger discipline as the cause.

it might be better said novice shooters should never go below 3 pounds.

my son had a Glock 17 get away on him once , what happens it the gun recoils your grip isn't good and you release the trigger at the back of the recoil cycle as the slide goes back into battery the guns inertia takes it back into your trigger finger again he had about 5-6 rounds then got it under control , he kept all in the backstop and even had some on target scarry but he was getting tired it was late in the day and it was a club competitoin the RSO was right behind him with the timer and put a hand on hsi shoulder he got it under control ,then explained to me what had happened cause I was getting Hot that he was being wild. I had to be back behind the spectators line and couldn't tell what had happened at first. this was a stock 5.5 pound trigger so it can happen at more than 3 pounds


if you do not already , you should hold the trigger fully back until you have ridden through the recoil . then you want to as your sights come back on target release only to the point of reset and shoot from the reset.

even on a bolt action gun you hold the trigger back through recoil this makes for less moving and better accuracy some people can bounce the trigger and their hand is actually still moving as the shot breaks movement is bad.

with certain pump guns you do need to release the trigger as you pull the slide back the old M37 did not have disconectors in them.

this is also why you start brand new shooters especially to handguns with 1 round in the magazine then when that is good 2 , then 3 so that the gun is empty before it can be a hazard till they have some experience.

I have the same trigger, no complaints. Hard to put them real expensive triggers in a cheap AR. https://www.midwayusa.com/product/1021179552

Yep, I used the RA 140 in my last rifle. Ordered a Rave for the pistol I'm building next. Awesome trigger for the money

49er, we put a CMC single stage in the last build, it is a flat bow and breaks clean at 3.5 lbs.
I think it was on sale for $135
Rock River Arms makes a 2 stage National Match trigger for less than a hundred bucks and
is a pretty darn nice trigger.
For 10 bucks you can buy new springs from JP Enterprises and with a little polishing make quite an improvement on an existing trigger.

Had much the same thing happen with a para ordnance CCW where the double action trigger pull is around 2#, always thought I had good trigger control till I shot that para the first time and ended up sending 3 rounds down range without meaning to, still have and like the gun but definitely not the one for a new shooter

Seen the same thing happen with a 1911 where a new shooter sent a whole mag all over the place and I ended up ducking behind the block wall till he ran empty

Scary

I have a CMC single stage with flat trigger that works great. On my most recent build I used a Rise Armament single stage which is also a decent trigger. Both you can get around $125 on sales and they are drop in.

As mentioned the ALG ACT is nice for the money. They are the sister company to Geissele triggers. I really like the Geissele SSA-E it is a two stage. I have 2 of them. Very defined wall before icicle break of the second stage. My first AR trigger was a Rock River NM and it was fine until I upgraded further.

I bought a Rise Armament advanced performance trigger just a while back. Love it! Caught it on sale on opticsplanet and if you look around there is a youtube video with a promotion code for another (i believe it was) 10% off. Ended up costing in the $180 range.

Geissele Ssa-e is one sweet trigger.
Not for shooting with big gloves or anything, but light and crisp.

Two stage Rock River National Match is the best bang for the bucks you'll spend. I have them on my competition rifles and the Geissele triggers aren't that big of difference for the money they cost for me.

Have you tried the larue? They are as good as Gissele made of better materials than the rock river and only cost $80. When they first came out they were 240$ . They streamlined manufacturing and got the price down. I'm a trigger and optic snob. I haven't tried ever trigger on the market but have shot quite a few and so far for a 2 stage I have shot many worse and nothing better. Then look at the materials it's made from and that darn unbelievable price.

I like triggers that reset so you can dry fire. https://algdefense.com/alg-combat-trigger-act.html
