Is anyone using this trigger in their AR-15? How d'ya like it, if so? I'm building a varmint AR, and the issue trigger has to go. The Jard trigger sounds and looks good, but I'd like some first-hand feedback before I buy one.

So far I've had three replies on other boards - 2 pro, 1 con. I appreciate any input that anyone can provide!

I like single stage so choice is JARD, JP and Accuracy speaks. The Jard had just too many screws for me, but gives the best trigger if your trying to get below 3lbs. Accuracy speaks is best as far as no screws at all improves on the sear angle problem. JP works with stock hammers, still has two screws but I can get a really crisp 3lb trigger with no over travel with factory hammer springs, good for hard primers like surplus berdan primed stuff. Plus I like the way I fit the safety on the JP.

I have always used the Jewell two stage triggers, but I tried a JARD awhile back. I thought it kinda sucked to be honest with you. If you set the trigger for a crispy break at 2-3 pounds, the thing wanted to double all the time. You had to increase the sear engagement so far to prevent doubling that it created a spongy feel. Better than stock, but certainly not bench rest quality.
