Default My RRA Match trigger FAILED weigh-in...

Hi all

Went to Camp Perry today to register (get scorecards and triggers weighed).

My Modern Military RRA AR-15 has a RRA Match Grade trigger. It has passed at least 3 times before, but FAILED to make weight today!

The CMP Armorer told me "RRA is here, and they will fix it for free. Then, bring it back here"

RRA put new springs in, weighed it, NO CHARGE.

It passed on the first try afterward.

THAT'S good customer service.

I think that is a common occurrence with those triggers. After some number of rounds they need their springs replaced to make weight.

Nice! Great to hear about RRA's solid customer support.

Reminds me to pack an extra main spring for my 1903 NM as it's on the edge for making weight.

For the price of springs RRA gets positive customer feedback that will pay off many times in the future. Not bad for the price of springs. Sincerely. bruce.

Over the years mine dropped to 3.5 lbs. I called R.R. and asked to buy replacement springs and was told I would have to send the trigger in for rebuild or replacement. I ordered a LaRue Tactical trigger I saw recommended here in the forum.
Maybe I'll take the old one to them for rebuild?

Quick fix is to bend the tails of the trigger spring which increases weight. Eventually they will settle again and not make weight.

I had a very old RRA trigger that lost second stage and wouldn't pull more than 3 pounds. I stopped by RRA on Vendor Row and they checked it out and couldn't fix it so they replaced it for free.
