Can't decide which trigger I want to put in my 6.5 creed AR-10. The rifle will be used primarily for hunting and some target shooting. I've always run Geissele triggers in my ARs and really like the Geissele SSA-E and SD-E triggers and those are what I am accustomed to. A few years ago, a buddy let me run a few mags through his 3-gun AR with an AR Gold Trigger. It was an incredible trigger and really impressed me, and I saw why Jerry Miculek uses/endorses them. I was going to get the Geissele simply because it is what I am familiar with, until I noticed Brownells has the AR Gold on sale and now I can't make up my mind. I know a lot of forum members have experience with Geissele triggers, but not sure how many have also tried AR Gold triggers. Anyone? Thoughts and comments (about the triggers mentioned) are welcome!

I've bought a couple of Velocity triggers, they are fantastic. Do yourself a favor and check them out. The owner, I believe, was the lead designer for Jewell triggers.

Velocity triggers may be nice but I'd prefer to hear from those who have experience with Geissele and AR Gold. A lot of people also really like CMC triggers and I really don't like them, especially compared to my Geissele's.

Either will be fine. Trigger is a personal preference thing, only you can pick the one you like.

If you had thoroughly read my first post, you'd have known that I wanted to hear from people with experience with Geissele and AR Gold triggers. I also specifically wrote that I wanted thoughts and comments "about the triggers mentioned" so I am sorry that I don't care about your "beloved" Velocity triggers. Why respond if you have no relevant experience?

Take your crappy attitude somewhere else.

Yes, either will be fine. They are both high quality triggers. However, they are two totally different types of triggers. This is why I am asking for comments from people who have ACTUAL experience with them. I'm not sure why that is so hard for some to understand.

Ok. Let me rephrase that. I have shot an AR gold trigger, as well as Geissele national match, 2GS, and SSA triggers. They are all good triggers, and again, its personal preference. I dont think anyone on the forum can pick your trigger for you.

They do a review of the AR Gold that might help you decide.

Why don't you go read your OP to yourself in the mirror, then you can answer your own questions and hear from somebody that has experience with both. You stated in the OP that you have experience with both, did you not? Nobody can tell you what trigger you will like.

Well, I said I am very familiar with Geissele triggers because I own several, and that I shot a few mags through a friends gun with an AR Gold trigger several years ago. I don't consider myself to have a lot of experience with a trigger I tried once. Its been a while since I felt that trigger and I just figured I'd ask if anyone had used them both in a hunting application and heavily favored one over the other for whatever reason, but now I regret asking. I don't need someone to tell me what I'll like better.

perhaps buy one of the AR gold triggers to run it through its paces, then if you end up not liking it you could trade or sell it off for a geissele. also then you would have both to compare side by side since you already have geisseles in your other AR's. only difference would be the caliber.

I recently built a LR-708 and put a Geissele SSAE. Absolutely love the trigger and its performance. No experience with gold triggers but go with what you like better. Both are solid triggers.
