I've done well with Trigger Tech triggers. They've increased in price a tad since I got'm several years back but they work great, for me. Also have them on my bolt guns.
There is a product called Plate+ made by Springco. It is moly disulfide. I have used this for years as a first improvement on most of my triggers, rifle and pistol.So, I just took my rifle to the range and was disappointed in the trigger that Aero Precision put in. So, I'd like to get recommendations on a good trigger that will be effective for hunting and SHTF.
Appreciate any feedback.
Yes, I agree. Cheap crap was an exaggeration but they are not the be all and end all of triggers as some are programmed to believe. Old Bill is just a genius at marketing. Kind of like Hornady selling the crap out of the 6.5CM when it will not do anything any better than the 260 Rem that has been around for decades. It is all marketing.Im going to link a comparison article below which is the only one I have seen with actual data, including graphs of the travel and poundage etc. Towards the bottom after all drop in triggers are tested they touch on a Geisseles single stage trigger ($230) which is out performed by an $88 rise armament drop in. I wouldn't go as far as to call Geissele cheap crap but exorbitantly priced is spot on for what you get. For the money a PSA or Larue or RR NM is best bang for the buck unless you tune a milspec for $10-20. When it comes to drop in I prefer velocity mainly because I like the slight curve they have. I don't mind spending $25 more for that consistent feel. Elftman had the best trigger but it was the most expensive as well and the gains are not really worth it unless you shoot competitions for a living.

And what does owner do when world goes to crap and all they have are a metric ton of extremely hard military g surfaces primers their reduced power springs won't ignite? Why my only spring swap option is the JP 3.5 Enhanced Reliability Spring Kit. It lowers pull without reducing energy of hammer as it sends the firing pin into the primer. I have tuned hundreds of triggers and have a bit of a clue. Honestly all of the triggers mating surfaces need to be squared and fit to each other. Honestly that's all your getting in many premium triggers, a better fit of pats and better quality springs.Just buy reduced power springs
