I ordered an Accuracy Speaks trigger group for my M-4 at the end of July, beginning of August. I called to ask for them to let me know if my order went through. I never heard from them. Today I got my trigger group unpayed for, & a bill for $162.50. I had decided a long time ago that I was glad the order never got confirmed, because that much cash to make the trigger pull on my Colt preban lower just a little bit better, was probably just not worth it to me, & I could spend my money on the other upgrades I wanted for my M-4.
Can anyone tell me if it's worth installing at that price, or should I just send it back & use the money for the other upgrades I want?

Answering "is it worth it?" is dificult. It becomes very specific to your personal desire, needs, and perception of value gained regarding your rifle. The trigger pull will not be a little better. It will probably be twice as good. What is that worth to you at this point in time? I'm happy with the one I installed, but you will have to answer your question yourself.

Like AR-10 said, worth it is up to you. I have an AS trigger in one of my rifles and it is great. Not only does it help with accuracy but the very short reset makes it easier to fire quick follow-up shots.

Well twice as good is worth it, but just a little better isn't, I recognized the problem with my question when I asked it, but didn't really know how to ask it better, Thanks for the info though. Like I said twice as good would be worth it to me. I bought an SKS with a 1/4 mile travel on the trigger, & it made my Colt seem like the worlds best trigger ever made! Thus my questioning of replacing it.

Time to upgrade that SKS trigger, searcher. Get the milled trigger group, then find that ad in Shotgun News for the guys that will rework it for you - fairly inexpensive. Of course that will have to wait now that you have blown your wad on the AS trigger. P.S. I think you will be VERY pleased with your AS trigger. If not, throw that thing away (in my garbage can) [;)]

You can get a Jewell trigger for another $12.50. It should be allot better.

I guess a better way to ask this question is, will it increase my accuracy to any noticeable degree in an M-4 at the standard distances the M-4 is expected to be used, or would I be better off putting it into a longer distances type of AR?

I use the single stage AS trigger in my M4. Like I mentioned before, the advantage isn't just the accuracy but also the faster reset. With the AS trigger and firing hammers at 15-20 feet the split time is faster and the grouping tighter than with a regular trigger. In longer barreled weapons for longer range, slower rate of fire shooting I prefer a two stage like the RRA.

I agree with Troy and Devl, I personally have two AS trigger in my guns. I love them religously and rfecommand them to anyone looking to upgrade their trigger. This is the only duty graqde trigger to install in your AR.
