I read on a couple of posts that some people are having trouble with their RRAs two stage triggers after a while. How many of you out there in TV land have had troubles with your RRAs two stage triggers? I will start off saying I have one of John Holligers tuned RRAs triggers and the only trouble I ever had was when I replaced the springs with a Lower power spring kit trying to reduce the pull weight even further as an experiment. The trigger got mushy is all and as soon as I put the correct springs back in WA LA it worked perfectly again. Mine is still going strong after two years, so lets here your stories about these triggers good or bad.

No trouble out of mine so far; works as advertised.

RodeoFan has it in his 24" V. It is the most accurate AR-15 that I have ever shot.....though, I did tell him that his trigger is good for only paper, coyotes and shooting someone that you didn't mean to. Dave S

I was one of the few that had problems. After 2 magazines the 2 stage became an unpredictable single stage. At least the factory trigger you'd always know when it'll release, an RRA trigger after it went nuts there's no telling. I replaced the hammer spring with a reduced power one and solved the problem, for now. I haven't shot it since to know if that fixed it permanently.

I have 2 no problem yet ,but they seem to be getting lighter and smoother as as time goes by and you can hardly tell that are 2 stage any more.

Buster, so far the fix seems to get the sear tuned or something like that. I'm not sure if replacing the spring with a reduced power spring is a permanent fix.

Don't like the idea of a lighter spring .

300 rounds on mine and no trouble after installing. Mine worked fine with the take-down pin in place, but when I switched to the J-P tensioning pin it bound up the bolt. I called RR to confirm what I though needed to be done and was told to STONE the top of the hammer where it was dragging on the bolt. I took off .003 inch and it's worked perfectly ever since. I got my kit, which is also tuned, from Eagle Firearms ($88). Hollinger did not return any of my three emails to him so I gave up after two weeks. I'm glad I did as the tuned Eagle Firearms RR trigger is, in a word, FANTASTIC, and quite a bit cheaper than the Hollinger!

Have fired about 100 rounds with mine; no problems so far, very nice trigger pull as advertised.

I have one of John Hollinger's RRA triggers and it's great.

Every brand including stock OEM are going to experience a small amount of failures. You only hear about the failures with any fanfare. I hazard a guess that RRA has sold/distributed thousands of their match triggers with a very tiny percentage of user failures - which is to be expected. Mine has more than 2000 without any failure. It's a good value for the money. If you are one of the few whose RRA match trigger fails on, you are just an unlucky bastard IMO.

400 rounds with mine so far and no problems yet and in fact it seems to be smoothing out even further as it gets used more. YMMV

[LOLabove] We already know that about you, Lumpy! We are thankfull people like you are out there to bring up the luck quotient for the rest of us, lord knows I need all the help I can get. Oddly, I seem to usually be the defect magnet. You must have gotten my trigger.

I had a RR 2 stage in a new BM lower. It shot like a bad & overly sensitive single stage (when a round goes off when you do not intend it to - it's bad news in my book!) and it was basically very dangerous. I was about to trash it until a read a thread about. So, I sent it to John Hollinger - it is nice and crisp 2 stage now. I'll but more but only if it can be tuned. Otherwise - avoid it! Be safe first! By the way, if you want a true 2 stage (and more bucks), buy a Jewell.
