Hey guys,

I have this bad boy coming PANTHER 308 LR BULL 24'''' RIFLE - Impact Guns

I am looking into triggers because I did not like the trigger in the DPMS 308 I shot.

I own a couple of Timney's an like them. I even have a Spikes Battle Trigger with JP springs that is SWEET.

BUT I am looking into Geissele triggers! I am looking into the geissele ssa-e in this 308. What do you guys have or think about this trigger. I thought a two stage might be nice for a change.

I love my CMC trigger - its a drop in unit with no take up and very little over travel. Break is very crisp, good positive reset. I love the face that it's a drop in unit. Cheaper than giesseles, but only by about $100. They offer curved and flat triggers in 3.5 to 6.5 lbs and they provide decent anti rotational pins with it. If you went with a combat trigger, I would suggest the ALG unit, at least I think it's ALG. Get some good KNS anti rotational pins and you're set for many thousands of rounds

Okay guys, thanks!! I think since I will be shooting mostly long range with this new gun I will go with the SSA-E then. What about anti rotational pins? Needed? KNS pins look nice buy it seems that the Geissele pins should be pretty good right?

neither needed, nor recommended for Geissele triggers.

Both of my Rock River's came with their two stage trigger and I replaced one of them with a Geissele SSA-E. The RRA is not a bad trigger but the SSA-E is much better. Very smooth.

I have the SSA and it is very nice however when I felt the weight and how crisp the SSA-E trigger broke in comparisson, I now wish I had purchased the SSA-E....

You live and you learn and my next trigger will be the SSA-E :cool:

I have an SSA-E on the way for my 308, I just couldn't justify spending the extra cash for the SSA-E when the SSA seemed close. I hope the SSA is nice I almost bought the GS2 - wonder how that would have been...hmm

You really cannot go wrong with the SSA. When comparing it to a standard mil-spec trigger it is MUCH nicer! It's just when you compare the SSA to the SSA-E... that's when you notice how much crisper the SSA-E breaks...

I still love my SSA though... Good quality trigger my friend.

Excellent, thank you much for the information. I thought the SSA would be a cost effective way to get a nice trigger in my other rifle, I would have loved to have ordered two ssa-e- my budget only allowed for one ssa-e and one ssa. I am sure I will not be let down.

Jewel adjustable are another great and affordable option... they were the first adj/target trigger years ago

Thanks for all the information guys! This is so great. I think geissele, no matter ssa or ssa-e will be nice. It was 45 bucks difference and I am told its pretty much the same except the ssa-e has a lighter break. I'm not "crying" over it, just making sure there isn't such a difference that I should just return it!

In your opinion - keep the ssa or return it and save up a bit more for the ssa-e??

Thanks!
