Is a typical AR trigger single stage or 2 stage?
The single stage trigger was a military requirement for the M16 at the time. It was thought to be easier to train a person to use a single stage trigger vice a two-stage trigger.Single all the way, except maybe spec ops guys who get to upgrade.
And more's the shame. I think this was Stoner's biggest screwup. Garand, on the other hand, put a really nice 2-stage in the M1 and M14.
