The new Geisseles (and as I said, they will be marketed under another name) are to be less than $100. I paid $160 for my SSA(s). More than I wanted to spend, but that graunchy, gritty, heavy trigger was something I just couldn't deal with any more. All my ARs (A1, A2 & .22) now have the same trigger pull, so there's no surprise when switching. When I see the bling hung on rifles, money on a good trigger is well spent. YMMV.
As regards the OP, I was telling him my experience with modded FCGs (done by me or others) had not been positive, and perhaps it wasn't the best course to follow. The Geisseles work, there's no screws to come out of adjustment, and they are durable. I like to be able to say 'I did it myself', but some things you have to leave to real experts, IMHO.
