Super Semi-Automatic Enhanced (SSA-E) Trigger

Full Description

Built on the chassis of the Geissele SSA, the Super Semi-Automatic Enhanced (SSA-E) provides enhanced trigger control and weapon accuracy while maintaining the robustness and reliability of our combat-proven two-stage trigger. The SSA-E’s reduced first and second stage pull weights result in a trigger with a smooth, light first stage take-up and a crisp, candy cane-like second stage break. The SSA-E is ideal for use in precision Squad Designated Marksman type rifles where weapon accuracy and reliability are critical and a non-adjustable drop in trigger is desired.

Great trigger, bought 2 so fat - DaveP

Have the SSA-E in my 6.5 Creedmoor Aero M5, and it's been amazing. Light pull, and crisp break. Like it so much, I bought another one to go in my .308 DMR build.

Awesome Trigger - Brad

I'm a huge trigger snob. My old standby has been the Hiperfire 24 3G or what ever they call it now and then the Hiperfire Eclipse in anything precision oriented. I've had my hands on many other triggers such as Timney's and CMC's to name just a few. I will say that the SSA-E is hands down better than most triggers I've run. I am not a 2 stage guy and I'd definitely take it over most triggers. In comparison to my old standby, the 24 3G who's break I thought was the crispest one I had ever felt, this trigger is better. There wasn't much room for a more crisp break, but Geissele did it. It has the most crisp clean break I have ever felt. It breaks at a clean 2.75lbs, which is lighter than expected, but I'm not complaining there. The reset is good. In comparison to the 3G its a bit longer, but it still feels good. With that said, I've had people double with my 2lb 3G and have other issues. Its a shooter problem, but it probably wont happen with this trigger. This trigger seems to be more forgiving and suitable for duty use though. I mean that is what its intended for. It basically takes all the nice features of a competition trigger and then the safety and forgivingness of a 2 stage. Over all its a pretty damn nice trigger. I probably would not have given it a chance had I not build a clone service rifle where I needed a clone correct trigger. That said, now that I've felt this trigger I think that I am going to give their single stage precision trigger a chance in my next rifle and see how that compares to what I'm used to. I love this trigger.

Won't use any other! - Michael

Purchased a new Norris Arms Exodus in 6.5 Grendel over the holidays. Builder recommended your SSA-E Trigger. Turned out to be an outstanding choice! Excellent quality, amazing feel on both first and second stage! Won't buy any other from now on!

January 20th, 2019

Excellent trigger - Steve

Awaiting my second SSA-E trigger.
When I bought the first one I was skeptical to say the least. WOW! The only trigger I own that compares is my Savage 11 accutrigger!
IT'S NOT HYPE! These are as good as you've heard!
Ordered second SSA-E on12-29-18. Tracking shows it's still in NJ 1-12-19.
Shipping SUX!

Doesn't get any better - Cody

Everything geissele makes is top notch. This is no exception.

December 30th, 2018

My favorite - Cletis

I own, or have owned or used the Super Tricon, SD-E, SSP, SSA and G2S and the SSA-E is my favorite for more precision style shooting. It is perfect, in my opinion. Geissele every time.

December 23rd, 2018

Unbelievable - Chris

After installing this in my Valkyrie build I want it on all my guns. Smooth take up to the wall and a crisp break. I won’t buy anything else. Super easy to install also. Great work geissele

December 21st, 2018

Smooth as Silk - Albert

This is my 3rd G-Man Trigger, only because I only have 3 AR's. An SD-E, B-G2S-E and this SSA-E for my BCM. I am a customer because A) these triggers are hands down the best. B) I live 53 miles away from North Wales and am happy to support a local Manufacturer. C) Mr. Geissele loves America and is a true Patriot with all his hard work, development and input for Crane Special Naval Warfare and the USMC to benefit our Men and Women in harms way. God Bless and a Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays to all the hard working folks at Geissele Automatics.

December 16th, 2018

Super Awesome!!! SSA-E - Double (D)

I don’t know what to say... Would have given the SSA-E a 10 STAR rating, but darn tablet format would only let me hit 3 as a previous review was pasted over the rating stars.

December 11th, 2018

Worth every penny - Robert

Perfect. Stop reading this. Buy one.

December 6th, 2018

Great trigger - John

Bought this to replace the SSA that came with my Barrett REC7 Gen 2. Wanted something a little lighter and this was the ticket. Plus I put the SSA in my Ruger build that I put a dissipater mid length stainless barrel on as I love shooting with iron sights. A win win. Now I need a 3 gun for my Colt and I'll be set. Thanks Geissele

November 23rd, 2018

Fantastic trigger - Mitchell

Breaks extremely clean. I have it in a BCM built "Mk12"DMR. It tightened my groups up over the Mil-Spec trigger that my BCM came with. I would recommend to anyone who wants a reliable 2 stage lighter weight trigger. Keep up the good work Geissele!!

August 20th, 2018

What a difference - Curtis

This is my 6th SSA-E trigger and the smoothness and break are so nice I can't buy anything else. Because of this trigger I have the Scar and the Tavor triggers too. I can Trust Geissele with any trigger and it is a must for any rifle I buy.

June 28th, 2018


Purchased the SSA-E and installed it on my AR. All I can say is WOW! I don't post reviews unless the product is excellent and of real quality, take my word this trigger is like butter. A must have in any of your builds. Excellent product!

June 3rd, 2018

Only trigger for me - Bert

After purchasing a premium top of the line LWRC 6.8 A5 Razorback 2 Rifle the store I purchased it from offered the SSA-E upgrade for a fantastic price. I will never purchase another brand of rifle or trigger! Geissele's Super Precision Scope Mount is next!

May 27th, 2018

Buy this trigger NOW!!! - Ryan

Don't wait! But with confidence. You will not be mad with your purchase. If you want the best of all worlds get this trigger. Installed perfectly smooth in my S&W M&P 10 even with taking the ambi bolt catch/release apart. Drive the pin from the rear to the front all the way out then install the trigger and hammer as shown. Then reinstall and realign the ambi bolt catch/release and drive the pin sleeve again from the rear to the front until flush. Then just smile everytime you pull the trigger. Nice first stage then a solid defined wall then best second stage break I have ever felt. Worth its weight in gold. BUY NOW....seriously stop reading reviews and add to cart.

May 21st, 2018

Totally worth it - Randy

If you have the cheap parts kit trigger you need to get this this trigger. It's amazing. I thought my cheap trigger was "ok" until i put this one in. Unbelievable!!! Pricey but well worth it. Now i need a couple more.

May 4th, 2018

Best trigger I've used - chris

I've won a few of these from Cola Warrior events, and while I haven't tried every trigger ever made, these are the nicest I've ever used. Easy and discernable 1st stage take up, crystal 2nd stage break, and I'm not worries about them falling apart of giving out on me.

April 27th, 2018

Becareful - Matthew

What can I say but crikeys, this makes all the difference in the world. The problem now is I want all my guns to have triggers like this

April 17th, 2018

Like Butter! - Jarrod

Install was very easy and couldn't wait to get to the range. So impressed with the first pull that I had to take a moment to reflect why I didn't purchase this sooner. If you're still thinking about it...just stop and get this now. Great investment. Thanks Geissele!

February 13th, 2018

Favorite trigger ever. - Justin

I have numerous Geissele products on my rifles, including the braided buffer springs, super modular rails and triggers. I have both the SSA and SSA-E. I was initially concerned that the SSA-E would be too light of a pull but now prefer the trigger over the SSA. An added bonus is that they are made in Pennsylvania about 2 hours from where I live.

January 19th, 2018

Best thing since sliced bread - Djohnmustard

I purchased this trigger and installed it in my AR-10 build recently. This thing is absolutely wonderful. I had utilized this trigger in my brother-in-law's AR-15 and immediately fell head over heels for this thing. This trigger is a work of art, almost comparable to the Mona Lisa herself. If you're just getting into the field of building AR's or improving a current AR, do yourself a favor and buy one of these triggers. It may seem like it's a substantial amount of money at first, but it is totally and completely 100% worth it.

January 10th, 2018

Triggerlicious - IndialanticRob

Debated between the SSA & SSA-E like many of you have pondered, possibly torturing yourself. Its phenomenal. It truly has Home Defense/Scenario/Range/Hunting qualities all wrapped into one.

December 9th, 2017

Unbelievable - D-Man

First off, let me say I don't post reviews unless the product is amazing. This is one of those products. I couldn't imagine a trigger feeling better than the SSA-E. The first time I dry fired it I was shocked. The break absolutely unbelievable. Now I see what all the hype is about. Geissele is the real deal & you guys have earned my business with your amazing product. Every AR I own will have a Geissele trigger from now on.

Best I have ever used - Rogerdodger

After several thousand rounds through my Daniel Defense v7lw I installed a geissele super 42 spring and ssa-e trigger , best money I’ve ever spent on firearm parts , I just ordered an airborne charging handle , geissle makes the best !!!!! Don’t hesitate putting geissle on your rifle , and their customer service is rock solid geissle customer service has always got back to me with answers that were genuine and honest !!!

Wonderful trigger - Gooseslayer

I had a Mil-Spec trigger in my AR which functioned but seemed a little rough. I put in an SSA-E trigger in this morning and couldn't believe the difference! It is so accurate and smooth! It is very predictable with the 1st stage being light enough but not too light. Then the stop at the 2nd stage is positive but the break is perfect. It is quick, precise and no over-travel. I'm sold! I certainly would recommend this trigger to anyone looking for a replacement trigger. I only wish the mfg would have offered this trigger initially. Thanks.

July 9th, 2017

One of the finest triggers on the market! - Willie

I have a few other triggers in my collection but the SSA-E is my favorite without a doubt! I trust in the Gessele name for their excellent product design and reliable manufacturing, I also highly recommend the SSA-E to those thinking about updating their AR platform. Great job Geissele!

July 7th, 2017

Amazingly smooth - Robert

This is a outstanding trigger , buttery smooth first stage and a very clean break the reset is short and also very crisp , just buy one you won't be disappointed

June 20th, 2017

Love this trigger! - SteveR

Such a huge improvement over the standard trigger in my Colt M4A1... night and day. I am a novice but it was very easy to install after watching Mr. Geissele's video on installing the SSA trigger. Shot it for the first time yesterday with the new SSA-E installed and I really like that second stage!!!

June 12th, 2017

Crispy - Robert

Beautifully made trigger only outshines by its smooth buttery first stage and it's crisp break , I've used it for close up multi shot groups as well as long range precision shots , and it out performed my mil spec trigger by miles . Get one you won't regret it

June 9th, 2017

Great triggers! But. - Philip

These triggers are fantastic. I've never had a single FTF or light primer strike with 5.56 ammo, no matter the brand. Unfortunately I have had issues lighting large magnum pistol primers in my 50 beoy. Just some tips for anyone having the same problem that i was.wulf. Maybe 1-2 light primer strikes per 20 round box. I've also had trouble lighting berdan primers on 308, mostly with old surplus ammo. I purchased Wolff XP hammer springs for both these guns and installed them and then my SSA-E wouldn't reset! Lol. Fortunately I found the solution i was looking for when i purchased the Hi speed national match service rifle spring kit. The 5 coil XP trigger spring got my triggers resetting and i haven't had a failure to fire since, Not even with 40+ year old berdan primed 308 from eastern europe. Lock time has decreased too and my groups have gotten better! The trigger is still very light and i actually prefer it this way. Anyone having similar problems with light primer strikes should do the same.

Website inaccurate vs. box trigger break #'s - John

I just bought an SSA-E and the box says 2.5# first stage pull with additional 1# break for total of #3.5. Splitting hairs; I haven't compared it with a 2.5 first stage and 1.5 second stage but dry fire it breaks extremely cleanly.

SSA-E Trigger and Trigger Fitting Tool - 1Boston330

First, Geissele Customer Service--Charlie, Dan and Nick are definitely a cut above and very responsive. (This from my customer service experience in the airline industry.) The SSA-E was easy to install, but if I had it to do over again, I would have a photo of the trigger, and watch the YouTube installation instructions but the closeups are the pitts. The Trigger Fitting Tool is worth the money for it quickly aligns the holes for the pins, plus it is a good took to release the pins on the AR-15 Upper. The trigger is of very high quality and the company really is a customer-oriented company with high end products.

March 29th, 2017

Won't buy another trigger - Joe

This was my first geissele purchase, I could not be happier. The trigger is smooth and dependable. Install was easy. My next build is a a large frame AR with the high speed match trigger and super charging handle (already purchased both). I don't think I'll ever but another manufacturers​ trigger

Very Well Engineered - Lawndart

Somehow, I have ended up helping many people with AR builds over the last twenty years. It was my habit to use a Rock River two stage, $120.00 trigger. That is a good trigger, but needs to be redone every 2,000 rounds. Several years ago, I read about the SSA-E trigger. Just from the pictures, I felt that it was well engineered. Since my first SSA-E, I will no longer use anything but a Geissele trigger. Installation is a snap, and the advertised first and second stage pull weights are dead on. These triggers will never have to be re-done. The main requirements for an accurate AR are2 a very good barrel, a rigidly attached free float handguard, and a very good trigger. My recipe now consists of a Bartlein or Krieger barrel, a JP handguard, and a SSA-E trigger. When a friend finds out that his (overly expensive) AR is putting up sub .4 MOA five shot groups all day long, he/she gets really quiet for a while, then says a quiet thank you... That is a good feeling

Ssae trigger - Matthew

I am firm believer in buying local and buying American made. About six months ago I bought a mk4 15in rail for a s&w m&p15 quality and design is outstanding so more recently a purchased a ssae trigger for the same rifle install was simple as soon as it was installed I noticed a snag about halfway through the first stage thought it just may need to broken in however around 100 rounds later the issue still remained so I contacted geissele and spoke to dan in shop after a short explanation of the problem and a few pics emailed he said to send the trigger back within a week he called and explained the issue was a deformation in the sear and two days later he sent me a brand new trigger without any hassle whatsoever and the replacement is perfect all the other 5 star reviews are dead on about the this ones more about customer service don't hesitate to buy anything from geissele sure you can find cheaper products out there but with geissele you get what you pay for which is not always the case these days and if there is a issue it will be resolved also the stickers hats and patches the included is a nice bonus

January 30th, 2017

Excellent Trigger - Bing

Installed on M&P 15 and just love the trigger. Clean and smooth.

January 16th, 2017

Unbelievable trigger - Hunter

I bought my first Geissele trigger about a year ago (SSA) for my first AR. I was blown away with how smooth and crisp it was, and still is. I've told everyone that this is the single most important upgrade on any AR. I have been all about the SSA! Until.......
My recent purchase of the SSA-E! I picked it up on Cyber Monday sales after thanksgiving for a steal! $117!!!
Slapped that bad boy in a new build of mine and Holy Hell what a trigger! I had no idea what the difference in a "carrot-like break" and a "candy cane-like break" would be, but side by side you can feel a very distinct difference in crispness and break. Don't get me wrong, I love my SSA, but the SSA-E is insane. For me, it's nothing but Geissele. All of my rifles will have a Geissele trigger installed.
Swag packs are pretty cool, thanks for the fitment pin as well!
Couldn't ask for better quality, customer service, and shipping. Bill, you're literally The Man.
Thank you!

January 14th, 2017

Excellent A +++++ - Robert

Excellent trigger I have one in my sig 716 and 516 I will buy one for my Sig MCX when they come available.

December 24th, 2016

Amazing - Jon

I have several trigger groups in different rifles. I have used Anderson, spikes, bcm. They all functioned well. I had been looking through different triggers. I watched the you tube video on the difference in triggers. It installed easily and functions amazing. It is definitely worth the money. If you have been looking at triggers I suggest you check out their video to see which one works best for your setup.

December 22nd, 2016

Amazing Trigger - Andy

I got my new SSA-E trigger a few days ago and just installed it. It took me about 15 minutes to get the trigger installed (this was the first time I ever installed a trigger). The alignment tool that came with the trigger is well worth it. Do yourself a favor and just order it. It will make your life easier.

I didn't know which trigger to get until I watched Geissele's YouTube video about trigger selection. I would highly recommend watching it before you select a trigger.

The SSA-E trigger is awesome. It performs just how the YouTube video says it will. I called Geissele about some other items and they were great to deal with.

Order yourself a Geissele. You won't be disappointed.

December 7th, 2016

High hopes - Christopher

Ordered mine at a great price during the holiday sale. Haven't received it yet but am hoping to soon with hunting season right around the corner. Shot one in a friend's ar and was thoroughly impressed!

November 30th, 2016

Excellent - Tim

This is an excellent trigger.
You will not be disapointed with your decision to purchase this trigger.
Other reviews will testify to this....and they are telling the truth.
I have a Ruger SR-7.62 and this helps my groups shrink and be consistiant. Far superior to ANY stock or mil spec trigger...ANY!!!!
You want to invest in an AR. Or build one. You MUST have a quality trigger for any sub MOA accuracy!!!
This will fill the bill. 2 stage triggers offer a bit of forgivness and allow you to control your breathing a bit more and allow you to squeeze that round in the 10 ring every shot (as long as you do your job).
As an wont go wrong with ANY of these triggers at any price!!!!!!
5,000,000,000 stars!!! Yep billion!
Awesome out of the box drop in trigger!!!

November 17th, 2016

Quality Company! - Ken

This will be my 4th Gisele trigger. I've never used anything else.

Had a couple issues with my latest one. I sent an email to Gisele on a sunday night and had a response 1st thing monday morning.

Told me to forward them my address and they would send me a new one.

No questions asked, just wanted the old one back.

If it doesn't work, they stand behind.

Geissele's a class act!!

Thanks Bill for your products!

September 26th, 2016

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!!! - Steve

This is hands down the best trigger I have ever felt on a AR15. If you are used to Mil Spec triggers, you will be in for a treat. It is super precise and will with out a doubt improve your accuracy. I have two of these and cant imagine going back to mil spec junk.
The staff at Geissele are very helpful as well to help you decide witch one to get. 1rst rate company. Would definitely buy again!

August 30th, 2016

Beyond expectations! - Justin

I was thoroughly impressed with all aspects of Geissele. First off, I ordered at about 1pm, and the order shipped the same day. The free USPS shipping showed up a day ahead of scheduled delivery. I too watched the videos, and felt confident installing myself. I installed in my LMT Defender 2000 with little trouble. The results are amazing! Very, very happy with the purchase and performance. Awesome Swag Bag as well.

August 24th, 2016

money well spent - Jeff

you can find cheaper triggers BUT NOT BETTER! spend the money and be happy period.

August 6th, 2016

How Sweet It Is!!! - Al

Bought a Sig 516 Patrol. Fine firearm, eats anything, but in my opinion had the absolute worse trigger I have ever owned. For what the Sig cost you would thing the trigger wouldn't be that bad. This trigger made it an outstanding firearm. Love the Swag too, Thanks.

August 4th, 2016

Excellent Trigger - Arny

This SSA-E trigger is awesome!
I watched the installation video by Mr. Bill Geissele, founder of Geissele Triggers. He made it so easy to install the trigger myself. Great job Bill!
I tested the factory trigger with my Wheeler trigger pull scale, it was at 7 1/2 Lbs pull weight, way to hard for the precision longer range shooting that I want to do with my gun.
So I bought and installed the SSA-E trigger because I wanted the lightest pull weight I could get, and I got it!
After installation, I re-measured my trigger pull weight several times to obtain an average pull weight.
1st Stage Weight was almost exactly the 2.3 lbs. as advertised, and the 2nd Stage weight definitely felt at about 1.2 Lbs again as advertised. very precise.
It is a perfect trigger for my application of precision shooting at longer range with my DDM4V7.
FYI, Mr. Bill Geissele also has a youtube video about his different triggers called "Choosing the Right Trigger for You", I recommend that you watch this entire video to understand their triggers differences, so you can choose the right trigger for You.
The SSA-E is worth every penny spent on this trigger.
Happy shooting!

July 21st, 2016

Awesome!! Better than expected.. - Dale

I purchased the trigger for my Sig Sauer MPX. It is an amazing change over the stock trigger, it makes a good gun into a great shooting gun. I was so impressed by it I have also for just a second trigger for my M&P15. I am loving both weapons even more. I would recommend this trigger to anyone looking for an upgrade on there AR15 platform.

July 18th, 2016

Outstanding - Bobby

Just purchase the trigger you won't regret it.

July 14th, 2016

Amazing Trigger - Dale

I bought the SSA-E for my Sig MPX, This has changed how the MPX feels shoot and preforms. The best upgrade on the gun. The ultra smooth very crisp feel its is a dramatic difference from the stock trigger.

July 11th, 2016

S&W MP15/M4 - Byron

I purchased an early S&W, and this trigger has made a very good rifle to an awesome rifle. I was worried about the light trigger as all I have shot was the standard MILSPEC 6+ lbs, but do not be concerned with the weight. The trigger is clean, and smooth. It has honestly been the best investment I have made to my rifle. It helps the shooter so much that it turns so so ammo into not bad ammo. If you hammer down on marksmanship basics the next step is a good trigger and these are great triggers. Scratching your head about accuracy? Forget the gadgets, and try an Geissele trigger. This is my first of two trigger purchases from Geissele and not the last. Thanks "G" for the best on the market.

May 13th, 2016

Great product and easy install - Drew

Tried the SSA trigger on a buddy's AR... Love it! So I bought the SSAE. The ordering and delivery process smooth like the trigger. Installed in 10 minutes after watching Bill's video. Everything you need comes with the trigger; pins, springs and lube. Thanks for the swag gifts too. GA thought of everything!

May 5th, 2016

Excellent Trigger Group SSA-E - Daniel

I received this trigger in 5 calendar days and installed it yesterday. Great crisp pull and reset; have not shot it as of yet (M&P 15 16") still waiting on my competition muzzle brakes for both M&P 15 and CMMG 300 Blackout. Will also install another SSA-E for the 300 Blackout. I would definitely recommend this trigger particularly if you want a consistent manageable trigger pull. Great Job Guys & Galls!!!

April 12th, 2016

No regrets - Jason

Such a crisp and light trigger. When you compare it side by side to a gritty and heavy milspec trigger you will never want to use anything else again. I was able to get my trigger down to 2.5 lbs break and 1.5 lb take up average, but it is very consistent (.2lb +-). This is great for fast action and long range shots.

March 3rd, 2016

Buy It! - William

Quit procrastinating and buy it already you will not regret it.

March 2nd, 2016

Big Improvement - Greg

Major improvement over stock trigger in my Colt LE6940

February 26th, 2016

Fantastic Trigger Easy Install - Chip

Just installed the SSA-E in my newly bought LWRC M6IC. Watched Bill's videos and the entire removal of the factory trigger group and the new install took all of ten minutes. I did also buy and use the KNS trigger cage.
What a difference this trigger makes. Slight take-up then a very crisp break. Can't wait to get out to the range. Tried to give this trigger 5 stars but for some reason it would only let me go as high as 4.

February 23rd, 2016

Ooooooh yeeeeah - Jeremy

This is the best trigger I've ever used! I have one in my MK18 and one in my girlfriends Honey badger. So far. I'll be replacing my Super -T with one of these and putting them in my other 2 AR's as well. Once you get used to the back wall, you can ride that wall and reset all day. I shoot my MK18 almost as fast as those stupid bump fire stocks. Well worth the money. It makes the trigger pull almost too easy. No more slapping the trigger with these babies. They don't care

February 19th, 2016

Necessary upgrade - Dan

The quality for Geissele products is amazing. This trigger is an outstanding upgrade over the mil spec trigger that wason my AR. Accuracy will be improved by anyone who installs this trigger. Amazing clean light break, and consistent!!!!!! Best trigger on the market

February 19th, 2016

very happy - joshua

I've recently bought a new ar and my first ever. I found the stock trigger pull was a bit much for me as I have had surgery on my wrist in the past. I decided to get this trigger and it is smooth and lite enough that I am without much pain using this trigger compared to the stock ar trigger. I'm very happy to have bought this!

February 17th, 2016

Simply Amazing - Frank

After Buying my first M4 and then taking it Shooting I knew there was something not quite right with it. I heard about this Product and after debating about buying one I happen to come across this site on Cyber Monday and could not believe the price they were selling them on that day. I went ahead and bought the SSA-E Trigger for a Amazing Price. I was thinking I had to get this swapped out for me as I have never done one. After I read the Instructions and watched 1 video I did it in 30 min, on my Couch using the Pin they gave me. This turned out to be the Best Trigger I ever had. When I buy another 5.56 I will go with a better one of these, but will be happy if I buy the same one I did. The Swag was Awesome. Thank You Guys for making Outstanding Products. You have a Customer for Life. i just can't wait to get my next one and see what Trigger I will go with next. Geissele is just Simply Amazing !!!

Smooth installation - Richard

Installed the SSA-E trigger into a stripped Aero Precision lower in about 15 minutes as a first time builder. Just read the instructions a couple of times, watch various You Tube videos, and take your time. My third hand was a nylon build block in the magazine well, only other tool you will need is a plastic mallet for light taps. Geissele provides a free slave pin and alignment tool with this trigger, and those gadgets make all the difference.
This is a fairly pricey part for your build. You go with a Geissele because you aren't satisfied with what comes in that $59 bag of lower receiver parts. Please read the insert, and then watch the installation videos, you don't want to bugger this job. You will be well rewarded! The crunch trigger from those days with Uncle Sam will be a distant memory.

Great Triggers - Mark

This is my THIRD Geissele trigger. One SSA and the last Two are the SSA-E, Go with the E version. You can get off a quick slap double tap or a slow shot for accuracy. They are EASY to install and sturdy and the most well made triggers I have ever found.

A bit of everything.... - JJC

There is no question that this is an excellent trigger group as there are many reviews to support this, but the real question is - is this right for me? In my opinion, this is an excellent all purpose trigger - meaning, you can do a bit of everything with it. Is this the safest, most effort, throw my gun on the ground and it still won't fire trigger? NO. Is it the lightest, feather like, breathe on it and fire type? NO. It's definitely in between. That being said, I grew up shooting match grade rimfire rifles/pistols and they ALL, I mean ALL have sub 2-3 pound triggers.. some less than 1 pound, and usually single stage. These are the type where you even get your finger close to the trigger and THINK about squeezing it and it goes BANG. That being said, this is NOT a feather trigger... and it's not supposed to be... you really have consciously squeeze to get through the first stage.... although it is considerably lighter than a factory. What I am saying is that like life, this trigger is a bit of a compromise, and for fine, long range target shooting, I find it a touch heavy - both stages... HOWEVER, this also means you can defensively shoot the thing, run, be rough and not worry about an accidental discharge... you have the safety of a 2 stage and yet the trigger is still light and predictable. Overall, if you are used to mil - spec or standard production triggers, this will feel like butter. If however, you are used to match grade or very light triggers, you'll find this one does exactly what it's advertised to do. Bottom line - if you want a polished do-everything trigger, buy it, you'll really like it. If you want a feather light target trigger, consider the national match/equivalent. Cheers.

Great - james

This trigger came on my lwrc repr and its fantastic. I don't know why you'd go anywhere else for a trigger. Definitely going to get the super dynamic combat for my other lwrc ar.

WOW!!! Better than expected, scary almost!!! - David

I went with the guy who said this was not too light for duty use… idk about that. My (semi cheap) scale has this firing between 2.5-3 lbs!!! I am using mil-comm lube and I have found that my old .22 will do 2-3 shot bursts with that lube and it seems to have made my Glocks pull lighter too… but WOW! Lol. Anyway, for someone who has never upgraded a rifle trigger this was AMAZING!!! Though in my humble opinion (for the average shooter… I shoot about 500 rds a month but have never done any long range or competition) for combo target shooting and home defense/shtf I probably should have gone with the SSA, not the "e". I am ok but if anyone else picks this up (think wife, gf, etc) by the time they touch the trigger the round is gone!!! Lol

Overall, AMAZING!!! But, for overall Saftey, I'd go SSA if I had the ability to return this one and swap it.

Note: the slave pin was worth $50!!! It made the whole thing simple. Never having changed a trigger, I watched and worked during a 4 min video and it took about 3 min total to remove the stock and be test firing this one!!!

Amazing. - Clayton

This trigger is great. CRISP. Not too light for duty use, but not heavy at all. Noticeable 2nd stage (I like this), then gun goes boom. I can't imagine a better trigger existing, but then again, there are a lot of Geisseles I haven't tried! Gonna try the SDE or SD3G next.
