    Heavy is reliable.

    You know, this was a problem I recently encountered as well.
    I've got like five lowers, all with some flavor of milspec triggers in them because I rarely shoot beyond 300 (like twice) due to not having a range capable within five hours driving.
    I built a 22lr upper though, with a pistol-length gas system sight radius, and for the first time ever I'm having trouble with nailing coke cans at 50 yards due to the trigger.
    I think I'm just going to buy the Larue one everybody keeps talking about instead of trying to fuck with springs or polishing and etc.

        Yeah I guess, I just don't want to spend time fucking around with it over and over or have to worry about light strikes or anything.
        It's a lot more money to go with a full kit but at least I can be reasonably sure it won't give me any issues.

      Anon, don’t buy a nice trigger to cover up bad shooting habits. With proper technique you should absolutely be able to nail soda cans at 50yds with a mil-spec trigger and iron sights. Instead of spending more money, continue improving and really focus on your technique.

        The problem I have is that it's such a short radius and the trigger is so heavy that while I'm on target and pulling it I keep pulling and pulling and pulling and by the time I hit the break I'm off.
        Sandbagging it it's fine, because I can steady it through the weight no problem.

        I'm probably just gonna do it.
        If it's overkill for my fun tiny .22 thing I'll just drop it in something more LR oriented.

          when you do, make sure to poast about it in a .22 thread.
          I don't care what

    Lighter springs.
    Also worth polishing the trigger, but it won't reduce weight, just will make the pull smoother. I've never polished mine, I just know some people recommend it. I've always considered doing it to my beater to see whether the improvement is notable or not.

        The hundred buck larue stage two is also made out of S7 tool steel instead of cast whatever (4140 maybe?), so it's probably harder than a coffin nail.

        It is. Not that much better than a LaRue but it is.

    Make and model, OP? Did you assemble it yourself or buy it off the shelf? The trigger should be about 4-5 lbs.
