Hi, This is my first post so if I did anything wrong please advise....

Looking for some advice for a "Drop in Trigger" for my DPMS LR-308. Factory trigger is like dragging
a hoe across gravel. Makes it tough on those long shots.

Already ordered a Hydraulic Buffer which should be here next week.

I have included a photo of my DPMS slightly modified......

Needs moar scope :lol:


Aren't those the same as ARs as far as lower parts are concerned?

I love my Geissele trigger. See if they have anything that catches your fancy.

Timney also makes a good cartridge trigger.

Pretty much anyone who makes a $200 match trigger for an AR-15 also makes a $250 one for an AR-10.

Gisselle, Timney, Jewell, etc. They're all good triggers, but as a rule, I dislike the packaged drop-in units.

I've been happy with my JP adjustable (I came stock on my DPMS). Although the The Geissele Service Trigger is on my short list if the JP ever fails.

Nice rifle! Fortunately, any drop in AR-15 trigger will work with the LR-308. Timney, GeisseIe, Jard, Jewel, and JP all make great triggers so decide your budget and your desired trigger pull and pick the one that suits you best. Like others here, I too have the JP adjustable installed from the factory that I am perfectly happy with. It is single stage and probably around 3 1/2 lbs. I personally don't think I would want it any lighter, even for precision work. FYI, I will say that the JP hammer spring would have the occasional light hammer strike on steel cased ammo. It never happened with commercial ammo but I opted to replace it with a standard AR-15 hammer spring and I haven't had anymore issues and the trigger pull is still great.

I had thought that the AR-10 lowers used a larger hammer and beefier mainspring than AR-15 FCG's but apparently thats not the case anymore?
