Looking for one and cannot find one for sale. Are they still making them?

Those who have one, feedback? Are there comparable triggers available for sale on the market today?

Thanks for your help.

I built a G28 clone back in 2015 starting with a stock MR762. At the time, I felt the trigger was a bit heavy; definitely better suited to a battle rifle. But to cerakote the parts I had to completely strip the lower receiver and because just about everything on this rifle is non-standard, I made a mistake re-installing the trigger. Whatever I did wrong actually made it a much smoother, lighter trigger. I suspect I didn't install a spring correctly. Either way, I ran it for about six months before I had an offer on a Geissele trigger I couldn't refuse.

Did it improve? Compared to the original trigger - yes. Compared to my improperly installed stock trigger - not really. If I had to do it all again I wouldn't have spent the money on the Geissele. The retail price was $465 and I paid $400, which is a deal, but still - that's too much for a trigger.

They only make them when they have military or other large contract orders. At least the guy didn't lie to me about HKPARTS, Primary Arms, and others buying them all up anytime they are doing contract overruns. I have more respect for the truth regardless if it is a crappy answer!!

Poor man's Geiselle! :biggrin:

Anyway, what does this Geiselle trigger do? Smoother action, faster reset, crisper break, lighter pull?? $400 is a lot of money. What does it really do?

Next on my list. I usually wait for the 20%-25% sales that pop up through the year at various places. That's how I finally got the MR556 trigger last year. Brownells had the sale, and although the trigger wasn't in stock, you could back order it and they sent it out a few months later at the sale price.

Once you try the Geissele you'll find the difference to be night-and-day. I think Geissele offers a lighter spring so that the first stage is not as heavy but when that breaks,...it is crisp!
@dwillHK, I'll keep my eyes open for that sale, I'd like to get another one!

If it's too exoensive try the ALG triggers. AG stands for Alice Geissele if I'm not mistaken. I think one of our Canadian members bought one and put it his MR 556 and really liked it. But I'm not sure if they make 762 triggers. Check 'em out.

I put an UHL match trigger in my MR762. The trigger is sold by German Gun Works and cost less than the Geiselle. The trigger is drop in trigger made in Germany and is a better trigger. I did a write up on the trigger on the pics thread for the MR762.

To save others the time hunting down what Frogman said about his UHL trigger:

Finally I installed my UHL trigger from German Gun Works. I don't have pics of the install but it was very easy. The UHL trigger is a complete drop in trigger. Just use a punch to remove the existing trigger, Loosen the pistol grip, Use a small punch to remove only one side of the selector switch and just drop it in and re-install the two trigger pins from the factory trigger. Yes you do have to remove the selector switch but if you are decent with tools this can all be done in about 10 minutes. The trigger is fantastic! I would highly recommend it over the much more expensive Geiselle. I used three trigger gauges to test the trigger pull and here is my results from testing them all with 10 trigger pulls and then doing an average of the 10. Timney; 10 pulls with an average of 2.41 lbs, Wheeler; 10 pulls with an average of 3.16 and last the only digital gauge Lyman; 10 pulls with an average of 2.404 lbs. If you take the 3 gauges average and divide them by 3 you come out with 2.658 lbs average on 3 different scales. I did go out and shoot the rifle and the trigger breaks very smooth and has very little movement. I was shooting sub minute of angle groups at 100 yard with the MR. Sorry i forgot to take pics because I was in a rush. Next time I am in the states I will do a better follow up with pics. I carry a Remington M-24 for work and the trigger is very similar if not better. The face of the trigger has vertical ridges and is thin and wide and has a great feel to it almost identical to the Remington trigger face. You receive 2 extra springs and an adjustment allen wrench with the UHL trigger. I paid $324.00 shipped from Germany for mine.

Compared to the standard, factory trigger, the Geiselle was smoother, 2-stage and lighter. But keep in mind, when I reassembled my factory trigger after finishing the parts, and screwed something up (thanks proprietary HK), the factory trigger morphed into a light (approx 2lbs), very smooth single stage trigger. I actually REALLY liked it this way BUT felt it was probably unsafe AND I was offered a discounted Geiselle trigger.

If I had to do it all again, I'd just save the $400 bucks and find a way to make the accidentally modified factory trigger safer.
