Most of the lowers and uppers are interchangeable. Just some of the Colts have a large hole for the takedown pins that will need a special pin. All small hole will interchange. Mil-spec does that for you....

Can't exlpain much about the trigger... fullclip

OK difference between a 1 stage and 2 stage trigger is exactly as it sounds. On a standard combat rifle the trigger pull is supposed to be about 4.5 lbs of pressure before the trigger "breaks" and the hammer falls causing ignition. On a single stage trigger you will pull thru the entire 4.5 lbs. On a 2 stage trigger there are 2 stages. The first being approx. 2.5 lbs. when you reach the 2.5 lbs of pull you'll feel a click. Then you onto the second stage which is usually 2 lbs. On the second stage the trigger breaks and the hammer falls again causing ignition. Basically a 2 stage trigger is more accurate as it is easier to pull. For you recreational shooter and combat shooter a single stage is more then adequate. For your competition shooter DCM and such, a 2 stage trigger is almost a neccesity. Hope thet helps.

Welcome, where do you live? Nothing like some hands on experience.

Many local groups get together and shoot, drink/eat and generally b.s.
