I am not conflating the two. Yes, generally speaking, a lighter trigger is going to be better for accuracy. Triggers with equal break weight will be more accurate with a crisp break than if there is a pressure build up and then release at the same weight. Yes shooting speed will impact this and yes training can overcome it to a certain degree. How many high dollar triggers or trigger jobs are offering an option for mush?

Note: Preference being what it is...I actually prefer a good single stage trigger over a good two stage trigger in an AR pattern rifle/carbine for close in shooting. My performance on target bears out comparable results.
I do as well except in the two instances of two ARs that I have that are purpose built for longer ranges, one of them being a 308 AR. I have Geissele SSA-E in those. Everything else gets an ALG ACT.

IMO the reset is more important than the break, a long reset slows down shooting, and a mushy or soft reset makes it easy to move past it, and get a long inconsistent pull. Most striker and some da/sa pistols have essentially a 2 stage trigger, a takeup portion to deactivate a pin block, then the sear is engaged and the 2nd stage is the sear getting pulled out of engagement. The pull weight difference between the 2 stages can give you a long mushy pull(with little difference), or a quick takeup, then a precise and repeatable break(larger difference) For this reason I usually go with a lighter return spring, and sometimes a heavier sear/striker spring. THe reset point is important in that you only need to let the trigger move forward a small ammount to reset the 2nd stage without needing to move all the way back to the 1st, this is critical for shooting fast, and gives the "feel" of a lighter trigger being you really only feel the couple #s difference between the 2 stages. The P-series sig have nice predictable trigggers, and a great short reset with the SRT kit, the Legion / grayguns triggers are epic, actually easier to shoot fast for me than the tiny throw of a good 1911 trigger. On the 320 series, the Graygguns comp kit has a nice 2 stage feel, really good for a polyframe, but even a lighter return spring, and a GG or Apex trigger do help clean things up.

You'd love XDs then. They've typically felt like clunking a light switch back and forth to me.
