I'm building my first 6.5 Gendel. Let's talk about the BEST trigger combination for hunting and target shooting for the 6.5 Grendel. I know there will be plenty of pro's and con's so let's not get wrapped up in nothing but facts please. Let's hear what you got to say. This will help others figure out what they want as well. Thank you for all your help.

I like Geissele. I have a SSA-E and the pull is 2.3/1.2 lbs, at the bench having the light second stage is ok. I think the other SAA Model might be better for the carry situation. I have had bump fires on my 50 Cal 12.7x42 Wulf. It's good for my target trigger but for woods hunting I think the SAA 2.5/2 lb would be better.

Here is what Geissele says about the SAA:
The Geissele Automatics Super Semi-Automatic (SAA) trigger is the semi-only version of the Super Select-Fire trigger. The non-adjustable, 4.5lb combat trigger uses the two-stage design to allow precise and accurate trigger control while still being robust and forgiving enough for Close Quarters Battle. The SSA is Crane Naval Surface Warface Center safety certified and recommended for Law Enforcement, Close Quarters, and mid-range work.

Here is what Geissele says about the SAA-E:
Built off the Geissele SSA, the Super Semi-Auomatic Enhanced has been tuned for a light and smooth first stage with incredibly crisp second stage break. This enhanced trigger provides better trigger control and weapon accuracy while maintaining the robustness and reliability of Geissele's combat proven two-stage triggers, making it ideal for use in Squad Designated Marksman type rifles!


Also they are all on sale at Primary Arms. https://www.primaryarms.com/AR15_Triggers_s/3208.htm?searching=Y&sort=9&cat=3208&show=40&page=1&brand=Geissele

So get one for yourself if nobody did and Merry Christmas to yourself [thumb]

I've the Geissele SSA-E in my 300BLK and lightweight 223 Wylde- LOVE IT
I've the Geissele DMR in my 6.5 Grendel, phenomenal AR target trigger, the Geissele also offers a proven safe trigger choice. Five of us (3 are spec op operators) test fired the AR Gold (what Jerry Miculek uses in his 3 gun AR) and the Geissele DMR and SSA -E triggers side by side there wasn't much felt difference. Shorter reset on the gold and more rough handling security on the Geissele.

When I first shot the DMR I didn't hold the weapon securely and got a bump fire. The only cool part was the second round hit 1/4" directly above the first at 100yrds. It didn't happen again. My 18" 6.5 makes cloverleaf 5 round holes all day with 130g Bergers. Grendel copy.jpg

I used to shoot only geissele triggers until I tried out a CMC last year at SHOT Show. They have two-stage and single stage triggers with curved or straight trigger shoes. I have two single stage 3.5 lb models one curved and one flat shoe and really like both. I even traded out a SSA-E for a flat shoe CMC. I put the geissele in my wife's 300 BLK so she is not THAT angry about my "needed" triggers.

I tried out all the Geissele triggers at the Great American Outdoor Show.  To be honest I think I prefer single stage triggers so I'd either go with their mil-spec drop ins with a JP Enterprises 4.5lb trigger spring (leaving hammer spring alone), or look into a Hyperfire EDT.  I think I'll be ordering a Hyperfire to give it a shot with a LPK build at Redbarn Armory.  I'm not a target shooter and wasn't a fan of how the 2-stage triggers operated.

Well I went ahead and ordered a Hiperfire EDT trigger. It will still be a bit until I have an assembled rifle to give a little review.
