Anyone try a 416 upper with the fostech echo trigger?

I haven't seen anyone list the . I will be trying out a on a custom lower. If it doesn't work, I will use the lower with something else until I can beat it with a big enough hammer to make it work with the MR upper. Regardless, I will post up my results, but the lower might not be done anytime soon.

FInished testing on an MR556A1 upper today.
I built an Andersen Arms lower with their standard parts kit as a throw around test bed for the trigger. I am running an ACE ultralight rifle length stock on it with a Wolf Extra power rifle spring and a rifle buffer spring. I threw it on an extra MR556A1 upper I had stashed away and had never used. It passed all the function checks.
Today I finally got to go out and shoot it. It just worked. Even binary mode worked with no tuning needed for my setup. I worked the trigger as fast I could and no hammer follow issues and a high rate of fire. I am guessing X RPM. Pretty sure I haven't worked my up to as fast as it can operate, but it was fast enough. The front-heavy configuration was a bit of a handful though. Controlled pairs are pretty easy if you have it firmly planted in your shoulder. I was able to keep a high speed 10 shot group inside of 3 feet at 75 yards working the trigger very fast. I am sure there is room for improvement with practice. My first attempts were very high speed, but they were all over the place, so practice is key.
After Christmas I will take it apart and clean it and report back if I see any unusual or questionable wear. Hope this helps someone.
P.S. At some point, I might actually put the trigger group in the HK lower and see if that works as well, but I like the stock MR trigger enough that I don't anticipate testing this anytime soon.

Glad it worked for you. I will update list in 1st post.
Swapped in an Elftmann Match trigger into my lower. Tested it with the MR556 upper using a dummy round with a piece of tape on the back to check if the firing pin would puncture it and it did! Should be GTG, as well as the 3Gun version.
Why does everybody like two stage. Is there something wrong with single stage?
