A $90 larue trigger will get you 95+ percent of the accuracy that you'll get out of a $300 trigger in my opinion.

Good luck. 

 :yeah:

I spent $250 + on multiple Geissele triggers. They are great triggers, but not 2 1/2 times better then Larue triggers.
My next AR will have a larue trigger.
Only 2 defining forces sacrificed themselves for you:
The American Soldier and Jesus Christ. One died for your freedom, the other for your soul.

My rock,
He trains my hands for war and my fingers for battle.

Thanks for the advice. I just went and picked up a few.

Nice. 

I won't spoil the surprise but they usually throw a great little gift in with each purchase.

Maybe I'm a sucker, but what they throw in as a gift has made me a very loyal customer. ,

Id suggest looking at the Ruger Ar556's
That's good advice. The Ruger AR is a pretty good buy for your money, especially for a first AR.
Like all rifles chambered in 5.56, you can shoot 5.56x45mm or .223 Remington ammo in the Ruger AR556.

Spend the extra $100 and buy the Ruger MPR. Their single stage trigger sucks compared to the MPRs trigger. :twocents:
Don't even respond to the little provocateurs. Just smack them when they go to far.
