    You are gonna like the way it shoots. I prefer it over the single stage. But, here is the single stage:

    Eighty bucks for either of these triggers is a GREAT deal.
    Dollar for dollar it pretty hard to beat these triggers, but I do love my Geissele SSA/SSA-E triggers.

    I'm a fan of the LaRue triggers. I like two stage triggers mostly because they tend to replicate the trigger pull on my Glocks. It's not exact, but I found myself "prepping" the trigger on my AR's with 4# single stages and getting early shots in stressful training. Going to a 2 stage eliminates that issue for me. Your mileage may vary.

    I don't love the Larue MBT 2S. The pull is great but the reset is weird. Difficult to explain, but it's like I have to release further forward than the break point to get the trigger to reset, and then pull through the first stage again to hit the second stage wall. The craftsmanship on the Larue is fantastic and it's a beautiful piece.

    I had a Sionics two stage (1005 Tactical) and it had a great short reset right at the second stage wall so very short pull and no unnecessary travel. I preferred the feel of it to the Larue, but ultimately the cheap Nickel Boron coating makes it a no go for me.

    I've found that on scoped "precision" guns I like a two stage, but on a little red dotted carbine I like a nicely worn in milspec trigger.

    Full disclosure: I prefer 2 stage triggers in all rifles. Are they necessary? No, many people do fine with single stage triggers.

    With that out of the way, for an accuracy build I would choose a 2 stage trigger for more control, and knowing when it's going to break consistently.

    The old sayings of "hold your breath" or "the trigger break should surprise you" is hogwash and an anathema to accuracy and precision. You want the trigger to break during natural respiratory pause between inhaling and exhaling, and you want to know exactly when it is going to break, so you can pass on the shot until the next respiratory cycle comes around. Holding your breath depletes your brain and muscles of oxygen, the first two things that happen is concentration and vision begin to be impacted.

    OP, you should take a look at Hiperfire Triggers as well. I have a single stage hiperfire trigger in a lower and it is fantastic. It came with 3 different different sets of springs ranging in trigger pull weight from 2.5 - 3.5 lbs. I went with the intermediate or 3 lb weight. Fantastic and in my opinion, as accurate as my two stage Geiselle.
    I got my Hiperfire for about $125 when on sale. They can be spendy, but excellent.

    This is the one that I have.

    I have SSA-E triggers in my ARs that I have scopes on(with the exception of my KAC, it has a KAC 2 stage). My SBRs have BCM single stages. I will try the LaRue if I put another lower together.
