OK guys, I know you've probably answered this one before but please bare with me as I am new to this board....So I bought a Bushy AR and love it. Only one complaint..Dam trigger just feels wrong..I mean it sorta drags..just doesn't feel smooth like my bolt rifles..is this normal, if not..what is causing this. I have cleaned and oiled to no avail.

I changed my trigger group springs to a set of JP reduced power springs, and that helped. But its still a stock trigger.

I think the only real fix is to replace the stock trigger with a competition trigger.

That's just the way the trigger is. 2 options: Upgrade your trigger, or get used to it. After about 4 months with mine, I only notice when I fire someone else's AR with an aftermarket trigger. I guess it's like getting used to firing a Glock with the 13 pound trigger pull

YEA, and it keeps those pesky 55 grainers from flying when you don't want them to..

I bought and installed a JP single stage trigger that was a great improvement over the sucky BM stock trigger. I think I paid $100 or so for it. No special skills are necessary other than basic literacy. The JP comes with a couple pages of illustrated instructions. You will probably need to score some Loctite, and a trigger pull gauge wouldn't hurt.

Others will recommend the Jewell trigger and I can't argue with that, except to say that it costs more than the JP.

If you don't know what you're doing, get a drop in Accuracy Speaks from www.brownells.com. By the time you pay smith to redo your trigger, you may as well just buy an aftermarket.

If (and I mean ONLY if) you are intimately familiar with the innards of your AR, you can reduce the sear notch height on the hammer and radius the engagement surface on the sear and polish both, but we're talking tolerances in the .001" range, and if you take off too much, you're fried. You may also get into disconnector timing issues doing this, so don't try to 'wing it' without capable supervision.
