Any Super Scar trigger you find today will be a Gen 2. There is no difference in trigger performance between the two.I've been meaning to ask about this trigger. I've read a 2011 thread in this forum about SCAR factory trigger pull weight (reports from 8.5-10lbs) and the Giselle solution. The other day I took my SCAR 16 out to the range for the first time in a year, after mounting a Trijicon 1-4x24 on it, to sight in.
Mission accomplished, but I had forgot how heavy the factory trigger is on this rifle. I'm sure it affected my groups. I don't have a trigger pull weight gauge and don't want one, but my trigger has to be in the range quoted.
So, by way of asking for more current advice than the 2011 thread mentioned above, those of you who have installed a Giselle trigger in your SCAR 16, do you recommend it? Can I tell, from vendors' sites, which is Gen 1 and Gen 2?
I saw a price on the SCAR Giselle trigger today of $286. Would that be the Gen 1, or Gen 2?
I can't speak to the Generation 1 as I have a Generation 2 that I installed on my SCAR 17, all I can say is it is a vast improvement over the original trigger that came on the SCAR 17; much shorter take up, definitely smoother, and lighter (estimate 4.5 lbs).Gen 1 vs Gen 2
I get that quality is different but does it make an actual difference when it comes to shooting it or longevity?
Exactly.I can't speak to the Generation 1 as I have a Generation 2 that I installed on my SCAR 17, all I can say is it is a vast improvement over the original trigger that came on the SCAR 17; much shorter take up, definitely smoother, and lighter (estimate 4.5 lbs).
I couldn't agree more but it wasn't like I was gonna buy a $2500 SCAR 17 and stick with a creepy, stiff trigger. Still, the OEM SCAR trigger made the OEM Colt AR-15 trigger pale by comparison. Colt ought to be ashamed of what they put in their AR's, a 6 stage piece of crap. Love the rifle, hate their sorry excuse for a trigger.For what a SCAR 17 costs, the Giessele should be standard.
