So I ordered a timney trigger for a AR15 (skeletonized 4lb). I noticed that Timney sells a AR10 trigger. Will the Ar15 trigger that I have work? I have a new generation BC if that helps?

The RRA trigger two stage that people have used. Is that different for the AR10 than the AR15?

I put RRA NM triggers in an Eagle Arms AR10 lower and an Armalite AR10 lower with no problems. As far as I know they only make one version.

Some manufacturers put heavier hammer springs in their AR10 triggers. I'm not certain if that is the case with Timney.

I put a (woa) tuned rra 2 stage in my eaglearms 20" and had a few light primer strikes. However, it was the guns first time out and it was having other ftf and fte issues which I hope I've resolved. If it has the same issues with light hammer strikes again I'll probably try a heavier hammer spring.

Guess which one is for the AR-10:





From the image, its pretty clear the AR-10 one would have more momentum. Is that necessary? Only for very hard primers on surplus ammo in my book.

FWIW, I run a JP trigger and hammer. With the stock lightish springs. and I have had a grand total of 1 strike which was not enough to set off a Paki surplus round.

Not true - pin spacing on the AR-10 are the same as the AR-15.

This is correct. The Timney AR-10 has a heavier hammer and springs.

You can use the AR-10 trigger in an AR-15 if you are worried about hard primers.
You can use the AR-15 trigger in the AR-10. Should not be a problem with factory or reloaded ammo. Surplus maybe.

Timney AR-10 only available in 4lb pull weight. It's what I am running on my built 10T.
