I need to trigger my Armalite varminter and would like some input on which one to go with. I once fired a Colt with the JP and it was...ok. Anyone have a Jewel? I believe it's a 2-stage, and I'm not quite sure 100% what that means. I know there are a couple more out there that I've seen in my Brownells catalog. Also, I believe this would be a "small hole"?

Thanks bsbg. But not a single word about the JP. Anybody? A couple more quick questions: When these guys talk about "dry fire" is that cool? or are they using snap-caps? Have always heard not to dry fire AR's. Also, is 2-stage along the lines of a double-set trigger? Heavy initial pull to a stop then light hammer release?

It's ok to dry fire your AR. I practice my off hand in my basement for hours doing it. I always thought of a set trigger as having either 2 distinct breaks or 2 triggers. The first break or tigger "sets" the second break for the money. A2 stage has a spring resistance to a break point.

If you want a single stage, the JP or the Accuracy Speaks get hign marks around here. I have the AS, love it - crisp 4 lb break, ideal for action shooting. For target work, I prefer a two stage for a more consistent break - pull against the spring, stop when you meet the resistance, then a little more to break the shot. A couple of votes for the JP trigger [url=http://www.ar15.com/forums/topic.html?b=3&f=12&t=155609&w=searchPop]here[/url] and an AS/JP [url=http://www.ar15.com/forums/topic.html?b=3&f=12&t=152002&w=searchPop]discussion[/url]

I have the JP trigger and speed hammer in my Oly Ultramatch. It is easy to install and adjust, following the instructions. Those instructions can be found on the site. http://www.jprifles.com/ On the left click Rifle Parts, and under that, Trigger Parts. They used to have instructions on the site somewhere, I don't see them now. Anyway, easy to install. And EXCELLENT performance.

I've installed both the JP and just finished installing an Accuracy Speaks trigger. Bothe triggers require adjustment but the JP does it with screws while the Accuracy Speaks required a good bit of filing and stoning. I think the JP is a bit lighter especialy when combined with their speed hammer and spring - probably the better trigger for a varmint rifle but the Accuracy Speaks seems more suitable for a working self-defense gun.
