I am just starting High Power and will be using a Colt Match Hbar. The trigger is not good. The second stage is not defined and sometimes it goes off prematurely because of the cruddy feel. It is really not a pleasure to shoot. I want to upgrade it to something that has that nice crisp breaking point. What do you all recommend me try. Home fix, or new parts? RRA Drop in 2 stage? Or one of those expensive match drop in jobs? I do not really want to pay more than $150 and I do NOT WANT pins and clips on the side of my frame. Thank you all for your input. Happy Shooting

Also, does anyone have a favorite load for W748 in .223 for 100 yard shooting?

check out the competition shooting forum, in the general section. +1 rra.

I don't think Colt puts 2-stages in their Match ARs. I believe they are an "enhanced" single stage.


From Colt's Site:
"Also, the Colt Accurized Rifle utilizes an enhanced trigger group for smoother and more consistent trigger pull."

+1 RRA

don't the triggers, to be HP legal, have to total 4lbs?

I believe a RRA unit massaged by WOA may be your best bet.

You could try the CMC triggers, but they won't meet your budget constraints unless found used on the EE.

+1...

And if you go with the RRA 2-stage and you want to get the most out of it, have it polished and tuned by a professional...

I think bigbore gave you the best answer you're gonna get at that pricepoint, but was too modest to give you the link.

NRA/CMP Service Rifle: min 4.5 lbs total pull.

NRA Match Rifle: no minimum pull weight.

There are no Match Rifles in CMP matches, only in NRA Highpower.

I have a RRA two-stage tuned by White Oak Armament on my Highpower rifle. Very nice trigger for the money, especially with WOA's trigger tuning.

A large pin 2 stage Jewell trigger would work just fine. I have put lots of rounds between the 3 of them I have in different guns and I have never had any problems.

EXACTLY!! This is probably the best balance of money and performance. But, actually, he means White Oak Precision, a separate but related company
White Oak Precision Price List They only charge $30 to tune a RRA trigger. I'd guess they'd install it for you as well.

You might also try a Compasss Lake. I had them put one of their two-stages in a stripped lower for me and really liked it. When told them I had a stripped lower, they offered to put the whole parts kit in N/C as well. They're great people, I've met them at Camp Perry. They also offer Colt accurizing package (floating the bbl, etc.) If you're shooting a standard HBAR you might think about them doing the whole thing.
Compass Lake Price List

Welcome to High Power !!! Check out the "Competition" forum. May as well check out the "Handloading" forum as well, as you'll soon be doing that too... lol.

ETA: I just noticed you're in FL... you really should just call the folks a Compass Lake. They've given me great advice over the phone and in person, and are down there in FL with you
