Thinking about doing a little trigger work in my ar. Anyone ever done the jp spring kit? How much did it help? I'm not opposed to buying a full replacement geissele or something but if I can make a significant improvement for $10 I'd be ok with that too.
I put JP reduced power springs on a milspec trigger and it made a little difference. But like Buzz said, just get a better trigger. It does make a huge difference. I run Geissele SSA-E's in my AR's and love them.
I tweak the hammer spring legs where the hammer has a little less spring pressure on it by simply winding the spring maybe 1/4 of the way around more and then polish the trigger and hammer and it makes a stock trigger pretty nice. Basically all the jp springs are is a little lighter spring you can achieve the same lighter weight by doing what I described above. If you tweak the spring too far you will start getting light primer strikes but it doesn't take much to make the trigger significantly better. I can send you a picture of one of mine so you can use it to see how far to go on yours. Worth a shot before you replace it.
