If anyone wants to trade their "heavy" MBT trigger springs for the standard, lighter MBT trigger springs, let me know.

I have three; unused.

An easy way to grab a few spares.

I should have bought a few as well at the same time. My range buddy is waiting for the hands on on mine. He deals with a gun shop and they recommend the Geissele triggers. I know when he tries mine and then I tell him $87 dollars his jaw will drop.

Ok. So I just got it delivered and installed. Got a sticker and a catalog in the box. Here is my issue and it's not a bad one. I'm torn between the light and heavy spring. I have never shot a 2 stage trigger, I'll say that right off the bat. The only aftermarket trigger I shot is on the AK the ALG premium one. I feel that was to light out of the box so I added the extra lb spring and to me it's still on the light side but not at all bad. The MBT is nice ,really nice. I just feel the second stage break is really touchy on the light spring. This is all dry firing for reference with the upper on. The reset is nice but more audible and noticable on the 6lb. The 6lb is good as well. Reset is noticeable louder and more pronounced. The trigger pull noticeable more,but not as touchy as the 4. Like splitting hairs here. What is the exact pulls on these? Is it 2lb+2lbs? Is that how its calculated? Maybe it's just me and my personal shooting style. I feel the 6lb 1st stage is very comparable to the 4lb. And the break is 4lbs. Like both triggers 1st is 2lbs and the light is another 2lb and the heavy is 4lbs. Lol feel like I want to be right in between these 2. Anyone test these 2 for pulls weights? Thanks

All of your questions regarding the pull weight are on LaRue's website under the item description. Did you read that prior to ordering?

https://www.larue.com/products/larue...bt-2s-trigger/

The trigger with the light spring is 4.5 pounds, not 4 pounds. It is 2.5 lbs first stage and 2.0 lbs second stage. The heavier spring changes the 4.5 pounds to 6 pounds (I believe 3.5 lbs + 2.5 pounds).

I read it. I cant ask a question??? My question is regarding peoples here preference of heavy vs light. Uses. I made a mistake on the light by .5 lbs. Preferably interested in the heavy weight changes. You say the heavy changes you "believe" 3.5lbs + 2.5lbs. I didnt see those weights anywhere in the link you posted. So sorry that link does not answer all my questions. I wonder to myself sometimes why I even go on forums anymore. So I'm asking nicely.If you cant answer my question, just dont answer at all. Not up for condescending BS comments.

Seriously? The highlighted comment is what I would expect from a teenager.

The easy way to answer your questions is to go ahead and buy a $20 trigger pull gauge, and just keep the spring you like the most.

Expect what you want. Your response is exactly why I dont go on or join forums much anymore. Some always have something wise to say or question you, or insult you. I asked a question regarding lbs. and usage. Simple. I didnt insult anyone. Or question anyone. I first get a ? As a response. Then a link for me to read questioning if I even read it in the first place as the information is supposed to be there. It is not on the heavy. If this is a thread on Larues trigger let's talk about it. I know the info is discussed on other forums. So is the price. If that's the case why have a discussion on anything? OP should have just listed price of the trigger and links to all discussions and info and locked the thread. My opinion is healthy discussions current are good for the forum. Not why ask questions here, it's been discussed, search it. Forums thrive on discussions.

Try using paragraphs if you want discussion. Members aren't going to read a block of text. That is why I responded with a ?.

Also, I provided the link as it doesn't seem you know much about the item you purchased.

Rather than complaining about the trigger being 'touchy' with the light spring when dry firing, it is important to realize that is the whole point of a nice two stage trigger. The second stage is suppose to be 'touchy.' That is the point.

AKD, I don’t think the files is the place for you if you can’t take a little rough joking.

Burn had answered your question but your butthurt made you skip right over it. Here it is again, so you can understand the trigger springs and the weight: “The trigger with the light spring is 4.5 pounds, not 4 pounds. It is 2.5 lbs first stage and 2.0 lbs second stage. The heavier spring changes the 4.5 pounds total to 6 pounds total (I believe 3.5 lbs + 2.5 pounds).”

Oh sorry now you are the grammar police. Didnt know you speak for all the members here. I know what I purchased. I know what I installed. I asked the weight of the heavy springs and you gave me a link and asked me " Didnt you read before you purchased this" I did. And if you click you own link its doesnt give the heavy spring breakdown. That's all I asked. I never complained the trigger is touchy. I just said it's way to light for anything but bench shooting. I mean please dont put words in my mouth. I asked a question and your responding to me like you own the board here. I asked you nicely before. If you cant answer my question dont respond to me directly. I mean what part of that request dont you understand? The breakdown you gave me isnt listed anywhere. I dont know how a simple question with no Iill ntent gets thrown back in my face. If you had a link to the heavy post it. That's all. I'd click it and be done. I know this will go back and forth all day long if I continue to respond, but hey you dont get that many posts by not being on the board all day long.

Well since you and your buddy"Burn" apparently run the board here as the elders. Just avoid me. I ask a question you dont have the answer then dont answer. Real simple.I didnt join the akfiles for " rough" joking. Not here to make "cyber friends".Sorry I'm not a staple here with 10s of thousands of posts. So I can respond like I have been here since the first thread and am here every day and get aggravated by people asking questions they can search.I'm not on the internet all day every day trying to be a staple in a forum community. When I can get on I do. Ask questions and look for answers. All the bs that goes with that I'm not looking for. Maybe you should step back for a minute. Just leave me be. That's all I ask and I'm asking nicely. To the both of you.

In all honesty, it sounds like you are asking a question that only you can answer. Take the rifle to the range with which whatever spring you have in there now and fire some rounds through it. Then switch to the other spring and fire some rounds through it. Then decide which whatever spring works best for you. I know this probably isn't the answer you want, but you need to decide which one works the best for your shooting style.

You have to have a thick skin on this forum. People give each other a hard time. If you can't deal with and brush off snarky comments, you won't last long here.

Back on topic y’all, about this trigger. It’s awesome! Came today and the longest part of the install was backing out the grip screw, easiest I’ve ever done even by AR standards. Reset doesn’t push your finger forward as hard as my geissele G2S, not complaining though. Wide trigger face is comfy. Perfect break for sure, can’t wait to see how it feels after a good break in!

got my second order of 3 in! I now have 5 of my 16 lowers/rifles with the MBT. I'm absolutely loving them. For $87 and having the option of the 6lb trigger spring these are just unbeatable. I honestly don't think the reset is bad on the 4.5 lb trigger spring like has been complained about. I can hear and feel it just fine. I have a few "battle" rifles that I'm keeping the mil-spec triggers, like my BCM, but these are my new go to triggers for the time being. Beats my SSA easily, and ALMOST is on par with the SSA-E, but for a fraction of the price. They feel like TANKS with the tool steel as well

Almost tempted to pick up a few more but I just grabbed a WASR 10 underfolder this morning from Atlantic

Question for you guys that have used this trigger i didnt see this in the link but i may have missed it

Does anyone know if they are using a weaker hammer spring then a milspec trigger? have any of you guys had issues igniting primers on any type of ammunition?

Sorry for my trigger ignorance but ive only used millspec triggers

I just tried out the 6 lb "heavy" trigger spring for a duty gun I'm building, and I fully understand why people like them for duty use. The reset is MUCH crisper, and you barely feel the 1.5 lbs of extra pull. Most of it is on the take up, with only an extra .5 lbs on the 2nd stage. I really like it. I'm too lazy to try the spring out on my other 4 guns with them, but if I build a duty gun, then I for sure am putting in the extra power spring
