Going to buy a CMC trigger today at lunch, so I get the 3lb single stage https://dsgarms.com/cmc91501

Or the 2-4lb 2 stage trigger https://dsgarms.com/cmc93502

This AR will be for plinking and hunting
Single stage or 2 stage trigger?
Only one choice allowed

I've always liked the two stage triggers

And I hate two stage triggers.

Different strokes for different folks.

I use RRNM two stage triggers and JP springs. My first AR was a RR and it came with the NM trigger. I just got used to it.

I like the Kidd two stage in my 10/22's. I also do my own tuned single stage in most of the 10/22's. After the first pull I get used to it.

I have equal love for both, I hated the idea of a two stage trigger until I used a good one, now I'd replace all my singles if Huber triggers weren't 400 a trigger.....

Didn't like the idea of a two stage until I had one. I wouldn't say I prefer it, but it really makes no difference to me. As long as it's light and breaks clean, I'm good with it.

Not a fan of CMC triggers at all. I know lots of guys like them but its hard to like a CMC when you've had a Geissele and an AR Gold. IMO AR Gold makes the best feeling, most crisp single stage out there. It is phenomenal. You really just have to try one to understand.

And Jerry Miculek also shares that opinion, as he runs that trigger in his competition AR's. I met him at a 3-gun championship a few years ago. Super nice guy, never seen anyone else shoot like him.

I have CMC and Geissele. I also have single and two stage. I like both, the trick is not getting them confused when you're shooting. This isn't a decision that anyone else can make. Both are good, but only you can decide which you prefer.

For plinking and hunting, single stage. For target/long range stuff I like a two stage. How's that for a split personality?

I have a Jard single stage adjustable in my AR and it's phenomenal. I do prefer a single stage, but I've tried Cast's two stage ARs and they really are quite good. Not sure I'd ever opt for one though.

Well I figured that all my rifles are single stage so thats what I went with, except I went with the 3lb Velocity drop in trigger.

I have been running Tubb's new 2-stage trigger in one of my guns and I am really starting to like it. You have complete control over all aspects of both stages and can really set it up for any situation. I set my first stage of travel to be pretty long and the first-stage weight is 2x my 2nd stage weight. From there you set the sear length engagement. The trigger shoe is also fully adjustable from a position perspective.

I've found this very useful on my 338 Norma which is mostly got long distance engagement. I am also putting one on my hunting rifle but I would not use one in a competition setup.

Tubb has allot of videos on the trigger - you should check them out if you are considering a 2-stage trigger.

You can also configure it as a single stage by changing the settings of both stages should you ever want to go single stage and have it installed.
