single stage ar triggers.

The single stage from my dpms is gritty as hell. Is there anything i can do to it safely to get rid of it? I want a solid trigger for this gun. No two stages and no two hundred dollar triggers. I've thought about sending it to springer but i think it'd be a waste of time/money if all i want is the grit gone.

What you might call solitude is something i look forward to.

Send it to 5.0_CJ, if he has time.

Give me a dollar.

I dont mind doing the work as long as it will be safe. I've researched the 15 min job. I'm not going to change springs,cut them, or bend them. I just want the damn grit gone.

I love my rra 2 stage in my other rifle. I could almost trust it, but would rather not.

What you might call solitude is something i look forward to.

Been thinking about a two stage. What do you mean you don't trust yours?

The one in my other rifle is a rra 2 stage. I enjoy it for range use and hunting. I have just read about alot of failures over time.

Done get me wrong they are still good triggers. Just depends on what you are planning on using it for.

Nothing really. All my toys pretty much just sit in the safe, occasionally coming out to be cleaned.

Sad, really...


Thus far I've added the enedine shock and was going to do the trigger next. May break it down in a minute and do that 15 minute job. Then, eventually, a real scope!

You know the spring kits for the AR-15 are DIRT CHEAP. Were talking about under 3 dollars for the parts. If you screw up, its under a 5 buck fix.

As far as grit, you're going to have to take the lower apart and polish the sears..

Got mine done today and it feels nice! Not quite as light as I would prefer but a noticeable difference for sure...

To get rid of grit in my triggers, I just blast the group with a quarter can of gun scrubber or so (self evaporating, good stuff), and then hit it with some rem-oil. Gets triggers back smooth again!

Single stage AR trigger options:

Bill Springfield - trigger job 45$ with springs has excellent reputation, he offers them outright as well. I think he uses DPMS parts.

Jard trigger - $125

JP Rifles - $170 with speed hammer, they can install for $40 with 1 week turn around.

JP Rifles - drop in

Chip McCormick - drop in

Timney - drop in

there are some others.

It's easy to smooth those out, and yes they are crap when they are stock... DPMS is one of the worse in my opinion. You need to sand and polish your sear and hammer so the release is predictable. I suggest putting an extremely mild chamfer to the edge of the sear/hammer for a smooth crisp break. The contact surfaces should look like chrome when it's done. 1 dot of oil for the entire group should keep it smooth for hundreds of rounds.
