What is the best two stage trigger for a service rifle?? I read over at Georgia precision that they recommend a Compass Lake. Anybody have experience with these. This topic has probably been beat to death but I figured I would ask anyway......might rile up some of the old timers.

Thanks,

John

I run a Jewell in mine. Never tried the Compass Lake. I also run a Jewell single stage in my Model 70. Never had to touch an adjustment on either one once set up. FWIW.

I like the Armalite (I have one). The hammer looks heavy enough for reliable ignition. It is not as heavy as a standard hammer though. I like standard weight hammers. They make the gun go bang every time.

I have only tried the Bushmaster, the Compass Lake, the Jewell, and the Rock River.

Of these, I like the Jewell. The Rock River is a good product, but they need to be tuned by a good smith. If you post this over on the comp. forum, you'll get several suggestions as to who should tune the trigger.

HTH....SRM

Go with the ArmaLite. I've had good results with mine. They're machined instead of castings, and I really like that. I've worked on the Jewells. They have a lot of adjustments that you can play with but you have to know what you're doing. From what I've seen most people don't.
