Hello one and all,

Well . . . yesterday was the final night for our local High Power League. My 15 year old son shot the league with me for the first time, and needless to say we had a GREAT time ! !

Son was using my fixed stock 16 inch carbine and he did very well. Now he needs his very own AR ! !

He's not ready for a full "Match Rifle" so been looking at the A2 models by Rock River and Bushmaster. New rifle will be used for next years' High-Power League, plinking, and the local steel plate shoots.

They all seem to have one draw-back -- trigger pull ! ! Some are better than others, but most appear to be just "rack grade".

So . . . . is there any way to improve the trigger pull on a "standard" A2, short of installing a new trigger group ? ? Like I said before, a "Match Rifle' is not needed at this time, as it will also be used also for "just shooting fun".

So . . . any ideas / opinions ? ?

Thanks ! !

For your trigger needs, I keep hearing good things about the Chip McCormick brand "drop in trigger" assembly. I have no experience with the product but have heard great things about it.

Are you sure you son is not ready for a good "match ready" rifle?? I would think that buying once and then getting as much trigger time with the same weapon would be a great benefit.

Thanks Bow . .

I understand your view on the Match Grade, but would not want to use a Match Grade rifle for the steel plate shoots and such.

Will check-out the Chip trigger group . . .

15 min trigger job. If ya need the link Ill find it for you but do the 15 min trigger job first. The most it'll cost you is a hammer spring and some time. If it works for you and it should then you can worry about match grade triggers at a later time. Also you might wanna get a dremel and POLISH the fire control group. If you're not comfortable doing the trigger job then I suggest the cheaper RRA 2 stage trigger. 75 bucks and ten mins of your time and you're good to go. I put one in my stock class Bushmaster. Best 75 bucks Ive spent. Good Luck.
