    I have an Anderson Arms AR-15 with an awful trigger. This will be a target / varmint rifle and I prefer crisp triggers in the 2 to 4 lb. range.

    I don't know if a trigger job or a new trigger would be better.

    If I go for a trigger job, I like to find a local solution (Oregon City, Portland)

    Looking for recommendations

    What is you price range? I have a Geissele NM trigger and it is quite the improvement however it was pretty expensive. I intend to shoot Match so i have the heavy one but it is sweet. It has a super smooth and flat first stage then you hit a wall, after the wall it breaks like glass. The directions are very good and there are a few youtube videos the walk you right thru it.

    Best of luck,

    I just installed 2 DPMS standard LPKs that have the nicest triggers in them.
    But I really like my Chip McCormick drop in trigger group that I paid under 200 for.
    If it's 2.5#s I'll kiss something.Never understood the 2 stage
    This hasn't a wall,just don't look at it until you are ready:thumbup:

    Rock river nm is pretty crisp, but probably a bit too heavy for you.
    (Was) just under 100 bucks.

    I sent 2 triggers away to Bill Springfield and while they were better, I didn't get the smoothness I was looking for. Those were $40.00 each and I supplied the trigger groups. I also bought 2 of the Geissele automatics SSA's and they are a pure joy to shoot, 4.5 pound trigger at $175 each though. I looking forward to getting a SSA-E to try out.

    RRA triggers can have issues after awhile and start doubling.

    Get a Geissele and be done with it!! Absolutely best triggers I've messed with! If you like a flat trigger look at their SD line.

    I second the Chip McCormick drop in trigger. I've put them in 2 of my AR's and they are very nice. A huge improvement over the standard AR trigger.

    +1 on the Geiselle SSA as a replacement unit.
