You can just put your finger on a single stage too. No real difference.Personally I feel you have much more control (especially in less than stable positions, or extreme environments like cold or wet conditions) with a true two stage. You will be able to “locate“ the trigger shoe, take up the first stage, hit a solid wall in which at anytime you may need to back off the trigger and not take the shot you have a much more forgiving window to do so, or continue to break the shot. Also with a true two stage trigger you have SO much more sear engagement than on a crisp single stage, but beware not all “2 stage triggers” are actual two stage triggers some just feel like one.
If I ever have the option I will always choose a two stage trigger.
Agreed. I suppose I am just indoctrinated completely to shooting two stage triggers from many many years of air, and small bore while I was young and now 20 years of shooting TRGs or AIs. I am not saying that complete trigger control is not possible with a single stage, that is all on the shooter. All I am getting at is a two stage brings a few more things to the table, whether they are a benefit or not is up for the end user to decide.You can just put your finger on a single stage too. No real difference.
As for not firing, you do the same thing on a single stage by just taking your finger off the trigger.
I'm a big fan of two-stage.I don't have experience with the specific triggers you mention, but all else being equal, I prefer 2 stage triggers. BigJimFish does a good job of explaining why in his recent TriggerTech 2 stage review: https://www.snipershide.com/precision-rifle/triggertech-700-platform-two-stage-triggers-review/
