I want to upgrade my trigger and cannot decide between McCormick 3.5# single stage and Timney's 3# single stage. Is there really that much difference?

I've used multiple examples of both, and it's hands down Timney. The CMC was scary unpredictable (but exciting).

Not Sure, but I think you can not get the McCormick trigger parts anymore. Someone mentioned they had called them and nothing was available, could have just been the 2 stage items but not sure.

I've got the CMC single stage and the RRA 2 stage match triggers, but in the future I'll be trying out the geisselle DMR trigger. The RRA trigger I have needs some work but it was very nice out of the box, the CMC was also a step up from the factory fcg.

I own both and prefer the Timney. The McCormick was recalled shortly after I installed it, not that I ever had a problem with it. The Timney just feels more precise to me. I despise the oversize pins with e-clips that come with the McCormick. Once you install them in a lower you are stuck using oversize pins forever. Timney's use of stock pins and set screws is a more elegant solution and easily reversible.

I have both and love them equally. I started out with CMCs and have yet to have problem. I have however cursed my Timney, but that was my own fault for not reading the instructions word for word. After a crash course from Timney Support I'd say they were equals.

Varmint Rifle -- CMC 1-stage 3.5#
9mm SBR -- Timney 1-stage 3# (btw thanks badazzar15)
556 SBR -- CMC 1-stage 3.5#

Don't get screwed by the overpriced Gucci Gear pushers. Send your trigger parts to Bill Springfield, or buy one of this premade sets. www.triggerwork.net/ar15s.html A ton of positive feedback has been posted about Mr. Springfield's work.

AR-15, AR-10, all makes, standard small and large pin Colt - 4lbs pull, very short, smooth, clean break. $35, add $5 for "speed hammer" modification. For 3lbs pull $49 (new match spring set installed; hammer tail removed ("speed hammer") for more positive ignition).

My CMC doubled on me a week ago last Sunday. Thanks to the good folks at Brownells I will get my money back. I called CMC a couple of months ago when I heard about the recall. I got my trigger in January and they said it would be fine, whoops.
