Does anyone have experience with Jard triggers?

There is a guy at my local range that shoots the club's AR match monthly with a custom M4 and he has one of these triggers.....he is very happy with it (single stage adj.) hasn't had any problems with it either. I fired a few rounds out of it and it was a good trigger.

I have a 2 stage adjustable in mine and it works for me.

I installed a jard single stage in one of my builds a few years ago. I hated it. It was nice as far as trigger function, but I dont consider it a safe design as it relies on non harden allen screw to put the gun on safe. I also had numerous times of doubles and triples. I think that was more due to me not having the trigger set correctly.

I have a Jard 2-stage adjustable. It has a very nice feel and breaks very sharply off the second stage. It's a bit tricky to adjust though. Mine doubles occasionally with a light hold while shooting from the standing position. You need to crank in a bit more disconnector engagement to stop it. Pull adjustment is accomplished by changing disco springs.

I had one sold it...just too many issues w/ doubles...no place in my collection...

have one now, will be selling it soon to someone with more time on their hands, and more patience, far too many doubles.

What about the Geissele SSA-E?

I've had Jard single stage nonadjustable, single stage adjustable and two stage adjustable triggers.

The single stage adjustable is fine, relatively inexpensive and has been absolutely reliable through about 5000 rounds. It's not as crispy as my Wilson TTU, but it doesn't cost anywhere near as much and is a huge improvement over stock.

The others (adjustables) have been sold.

Ditto what Superior Barrels said - the Geissele is the superior trigger.

I have a Jard single stage non adjustable one in 2 pound version. It has worked great for a couple thousand rounds. Mine will give the illusion of a double tap, but actually it is a light short pull, which makes it real easy to bump fire if you don't hold it correctly. It never does it with me, my wife holds it kind of limply and always goes off a couple at a time. It is really a bump fire it's just easier with a short light trigger pull.

If you find the comparison of cost to benefit acceptable, then the Geissele SSA-E is for you.


Just installed a SSA-E on my SAM-R.

Pure awesomeness for a non-ajustable trigger.

Got it put in tonight. It is an improvement, still some creep in the take up. Will see how it is after a trip to the range tomorrow.
