Two different stages of pull weight.
A single stage has only one "feel" to it

The two stage has well... two
The first "stage" is a very light pull, to the point where the trigger reaches the second stage, then it resists more and requires more force to release the sear. So you take up the slack, hold steady, and squeeze... BANG

Your stock trigger is a single stage trigger. The two stage is like the trigger in the Garand and the M14 (pretty much the same). There is a 1st stage were the inital slck or take up is and then you can feel the 2nd stage and pop goes the wesel. I have the Jewell 2 stage in my CMP rifle and I like it better than the JP single stage in my IPSC rifle.

I know, I'm just being a pain...
I knew someone would chime in and give you a proper response.

You might want to look into an RRA 2-stage.
Pretty affordable and no adj. set screws to fool with/come loose.

See? I know a little bit!


That'll be $100 please.

While a stock trigger may be a single stage, few are really good single stage triggers. Creep, hitches, overtravel all plague most std triggers that I've ever pulled.

Changed from a RRA single with some creep and about 8# pull to a RRA two-stage National Match trigger and it is well worth the money ($85). There is a short, light pull w/o creep and it "hits a wall", then 4.5# sets it off. Sweet, son has a Chip McCormick 2 stage that he loves.hunting

I suggest shooting an AR with a 2-stage trigger before buying one. A 2 stage trigger set-up is NOT nessesarily better than a single stage...it's just different. I don't like 2 stage triggers in AR15's at all. They make the firing mechanism feel sloppy to me. I tried a RRA 2 stage trigger out because alot of people here were praising them alot, but sadly I was disappointed when I got it. Like I said, the set up feels sloppy to me. My new Bobcat BW89PDW has a 2 stage on it stock and I wish it didn't. A single stage would be SO nice in it!

I have a RRA 2 stage trigger that was not smooth until 500 to 750 rounds. While it is good in my varmint rifle, I would much rather a crisp single stage trigger.

The rest of my RR AR's all have their single stage ste-ups. They are rough, but are getting worked in.

I am thinking about getting a McCormik to try it out, CMC single stage.
