I am new to this forum and just bought my second Olympic Arms rifle. My first is a 16" heavy barreled rig the call the PCR-16. It is a flat top with free float aluminum hand guard and I have installed a Mark Brown Custom rear Sight and a Flip up front from Olympic. I also installed an ace socom skeletonized stock. With a scope I can do under an inch at 100 yards with most any ammo so I have to say that I was impressed from the start. The thing that impressed me most was the price, I paid $600 new on sale. The one that I just picked up is a 20" model called the PCR-8 Target match. This is a like new used gun with about $250 worth of extras, Carry handle, flip up front sight, Harris bipod, extra 20 round mag. I paid $750 for this gun. Now that I have this gun , assuming that it shoots well, I will scope it with a 6.5x20 AO Nikon Monarch or 6.5X20 AO Leupold Vari X III and use it primarily for target and Varmint shooting. This will allow me to trick out the shorter gun with some of the more miltary style toys like an Eotech sight , flash light etc. Back to my original questions, first what do you guys think of the Olympic arms guns? Second question, I want a smooth but not overly light pull onthe short gun and a light clean pull on the second gun, what are your recomendations for triggers? If you don't like em let me know why I can take it.

Welcome to the board. Not Quite sure what your definition of "Light" is, but I would suggest the Knight Match Trigger. I'm not a fan of Oly Because they DO NOT chrome line their barrels and their parts tend to be cheaper.
