Even if you're not building one from scratch, lots of great information here. Thanks a ton, I've been looking at triggers for a while now and you answered some of my questions.

Lock time is how long it is between the trigger sear's disengagement and when the firing pin strikes the primer's cup. In more simplistic terms, Lock Time equals the time, measured in milliseconds, from when the trigger is pulled until the gun fires. You really can feel this with good triggers vs. stock ones.

Upper assembly info coming sometime today, hopefully when I break for lunch.

Awesome.... another great section. I feel more ignorant with every section you do. All I've ever used is just regular factory Colt stuff so I have NO idea what I like. I do both kinds of shooting, was under the impression that the 2 Stage was more for single shot marksmanship, and wouldn't do well with rapid firing. Didn't know the Single Stage upgrade existed but that sounds a little closer to the factory setting to me.

Side note: I saw a Bushmaster's BOLT snap a few weeks ago....craziest shit I have EVER seen in an AR. The actual BOLT snapped, across where the cam pin goes through it.

Do you happen to know the manufacturer? Or is it was a MP inspected bolt?

Good read.

I have both RRA and Timney triggers. I love the RRA triggers, I have them in several of my guns. With the addition of KNS pins they are a very slick trigger.

The only time I have had an issue was when I had an OOB discharge. I destroyed a mag, bolt and the disconnect on the trigger. Not the triggers fault. But I was able to break the trigger none the less. It didn't turn me off to them, I replaced that trigger with another RRA 2 Stage.

The Timney is a very smooth trigger. I have it in my 20" POF/Noveske build. It's the perfect trigger for a precision gun.

I have to agree about the POF lowers looking the best. I got lucky and only paid dealer cost for mine, but fit and finish wise I would give the $300 asking price. I have the Vltor upper on it and it is a perfect match finish wise and tight as a ducks butt fit wise.

I have used a combination of RRA and DPMS LPK's. No complaints on either, then again I've never been to a class (yet). That opinion may change on Sunday.

I have mainly RRA bolts in my guns. Again, no problems so far. I run my guns wet, I have ran high round counts through 2 of my rifles. The wear pattern on the bolt cam pin and bolt contact points are minimal, I guess my "if you love it lube it" philosophy is paying off.

I saw a Bushmaster bolt failure where it cracked/broke around the locking lugs. A piece with two lugs came off. This was c.2005.

I'm doing the upper assembly section now. Jeep, Russ - I'm only going to cover complete assemblies, so if you guys want to chime in on building complete uppers, gas systems, etc - I'd love to have your input.
