Mine if factory DPMS and I have no idea what it is but its heavy. It is accurate off the bench but is too heavy to be effective standing at over 100 yards for vamints. What is a good trigger weight that will be safe for a semi auto. I see the JARD triggers come preset in either 1,2, or 3 up to 5 pound settings. or there are always the adjustable ones but I'd rather have something permanent I didn't have to screw around with.

That is the question, I use two different triggers: 1) For load development and prairie dog hunting I use a single-stage trigger that is set at about 1-1/2#

2) For predator or big-game hunting I use a two-stage trigger that has a crisp break but it is probably about 3-1/2#.

The two-stage take up gives you a margin of safty when in the field. the single-stage trigger that I use I don't think is safe for use with gloves.
