Question Single stage and a two-stage trigger

Reading an AR-15 'How-to-' artical

Whats the difference between a single stage and a two-stage trigger?

how do they work? "beautifully"

Roland has one on his....maybe his .204? has to be his .204...

it pulls all the slack out of the trigger so that when you twitch, it goes bang.

As stated you feel a light movement, then a stop, then a little more pressure = bang. Not sure if you actually shoot a Glock or if you just like the pic. A 2 stage is similar to how the Glock trigger feels.

I personally prefer a good light single stage trigger set with no creep. Gently put your finger on the trigger, then gently add pressure for the bang.

My M98 had a two stage trigger (military). It was awful. I never knew when or where it was going off. I had it replaced with an adjustable single stage and it was the best thing I could have done.

is great for an AR.
The Geissle SSA-E is one that gives about 2 to 2 1/2 lb on the slack, and then
comes up to the stop with about a 1 1/2 lb press to fire. Very easy drop in install.
A single stage can be found in very poor high weight pull triggers AND in
very precision very light pull match triggers adjustable to less than a lb.
(ounces) Not the best for the AR unless you plan to only use it on the bench.
