Are Rock River Triggers Really That Bad?

I have been reading about reliability issues with Rock River 2 stage triggers. Has anybody had any issues with them? I ordered a LPK with a RR 2 stage trigger from RR (great price at 20% off) but am starting to think I maybe should just bite the bullet and get a Geissle. Even the cheap Geissle G2S 2 stage trigger can be had for $129 which may not be any better then the RR accuracy-wise but should be extremely reliable.

Have an early model (1997) RR 2-stage. No complaints. But like me, it's still young.

I sold off my S&Ws back in the 90's when S&W gave Slick Willy a BJ. I was more brash then. These days I try to wait and give companies a chance to fix their mistakes before I write them off completely (e.g., the MD "smartgun" fiasco). Mellowing as I age I guess.

Other other good triggers out there.

I'll throw a slightly different opinion. It's a decent trigger with it's biggest pro being the price. I tried one out a handful of years ago and it worked fine. Not long after, I tried a Geissele in one of my other rifles and after that, I transitioned the rest of my rifles to Geissele's (and Timney). For me the difference justified the cost. Just wait for one of their specials - they run them quite frequently. My personal favs are the SSA-E or National Match. But back the RRA - you won't be disappointed (and maybe also not that impressed).

Had a RRA NM 2-stage back in '09(?), briefly. Got it new, and I couldn't stand it. No issues igniting rounds, it just felt like garbage. Sold it for $50, I ate the loss just to get it the fvck out of my rifle.

Compared to my Geissele's, it wasn't even a comparison.
