Alright I have followed you all's directions and built three wonderful ar-15's.

Now, I would like to take the next step, How /What do I do to the trigger to make it smoother? I have a Stag lower with DPMS parts kit in it. Short of buying a custom trigger, any tips for smoother less pull on the trigger?

The 15 minute trigger job rocks!

While once a huge fan of the 15 min trigger job....just keep in mind this has no place on any weapon that might be used for defense. I did it to all my weapons, until during several training classes, I had many, many light strikes on Q3131A with seemingly tougher than average primers.

On a bench rifle - go for it. For defense or competition..... go stock, or spend the money.

I don't want to be disrespectful of FALARAK because he's probably forgotten more about AR's than I'll be able to figure out, but the 15-minute trigger job can be made, quite easily from what I've found, to work just fine with any/all ammo. I had the same problem with light strikes, but I found a solution....

Simply grind off the tail of the hammer to lighten up the hammer. This is a bit counter-intuitive, but since you have less spring pressure acting on the hammer due to the cut spring leg, you have to reduce its mass to get more acceleration out of it. I've done side-by-side comparisons on ground-off/unground hammers with the same spring, and the ground-off hammer always pops the primers unless the round is just bad. I've only had one Wolf round in the last 6 months or so of shooting not go off no matter how many times I hit it.

Here's some pics of how much I take off them and it works like a charm.

I have a ground-down hammer and cut springs on my home-defense rifle, and I don't worry about it at all. It's proven itself to me over the last 6 months of shooting it with the lightened hammer.
