Wilson Combat TTU trigger review
Just a quick note, I really, really like this trigger, a lot
it's the first time I have ever used a single stage trigger in an AR
for the most part, I have used the RRA NM 2 stage and been happy with it
I have one in my Sabre Defense 5.56
I have a Jewell in my Remington LTR and while it's set lighter, the Wilson is just as nice
It has no creep nor overtravel, and a very short reset
in fact, when it resets, the trigger moves forward maybe an 1/8" and stops, as you start to apply pressure on the trigger there is no movement whatsoever, just a solid wall that breaks clean and ultra crisp
very crisp and breaks like the perverbial glass rod
I did put a Gieselle SSA in my ARP 16" Recon but after using this Wilson, I think I am going to replace it with another TTU
Not that I don't like the SSA, but that I want both of my hunting ARs to be the same trigger and would rather have the TTU than the SSA personally
in short, I don't think there's any way they could make the trigger more perfect

Thanks for that. I've been looking at these but have yet to hear any input.
I hadn't heard much either until you started this thread. I am glad to read your review. I am going to get one and try it out as well.
I'm currently running a JP and a Timney on my personal guns. I was thinking about the TTU for my next build (11.5 SBR). I really don't like 2 stage triggers, and have been happy so far with my current triggers, but it seems that the TTU is made more rugged and focused more toward tactical use as opposed to competition use. I look forward to hearing more reviews, as I will probably be making my puirchase in the next 3 months once my form 1 comes in.

on AR15.com there's a guy that has been using JPs and now has the TTU and definitely prefers it
It looks a lot like the Timney design which had some problems with doubling and failing to fire. I do like the idea of drop-in trigger packs, though. However, both the Timney and the CMC had issues that resulted in recalls or replacement. Personally, I'd like to wait and see how reliable it is before buying one.
I have a CMC Super Match single stage that I liked, but just replaced with a Geissele Hi-Speed, after putting an SSA in other AR. I switched to Geissele because they are combat proven, and the CMC had been discontinued. Now the CMC is back in production, go figure.
I am finding I like a two-stage better, because it is forgiving on the take up and allows a crisp let off with a safer total pull weight.
