I would like to get some feedback on the new Triggertech Special 2 stage. I have a Bix'n Andy Tacsport 2 stage that I really like but the 20% off on TT website is giving me the itch.

I love mine so far. Zero complaints. I don’t run it nearly as lite as it can go. And it’s still super lite. Have about 1000 rounds on it.

    I love my TT Diamond 2 stage I have in my vudoo. So much so, that I bought another 2 stage for my impact. It’s got the same great break as the single stage, but with an extra stage.

    I got the Diamond and honestly, even at the "Default midrange" setup it comes in, it felt good.

    If I did it again, I'd probably save the money and get the Special version and just take it down to 8oz/8oz.

    I really doubt I have my Diamond set below 8/8 but it's possible I've got stage 1 at 4-6oz and stage 2 at 6-8+.

    But I'm REALLLY doubting that I'm taking advantage of the full 4/4oz potential of the Diamond.

    Also, be sure your Safety lever isn't contacting your chassis. It was failing to fully engage (Partial safety engagement but would allow a STIFF pull to activate) because the safety was hitting my KRG Bravo chassis. Took a few mins with the dremel to add some space. Now engages properly.

    I have a Huber 2-stage 10oz / 10oz, and have been always curious about the TT. I have heard it has a very shallow first stage which is different than other 2-stages. The only reason I was considering switching was possibly configuring it to something like a 12oz first stage, 6 oz second stage.

    I have heard of TT's failing in crappy dusty conditions. Hubers have held up. Is the Special less 'sealed' than the Diamond? Or is it just purely a weight adjustment thing.

    As far as i know, it's a PURELY weight thing.

    The first stage is very short. Just enough length that you know you're on it, but it's not going to be 0.25" of First stage pull.

    I've got a 2-stage Special going in a 300 Norma that's getting spun up as I type this, haha. Curious to see how I like it as I have 1-stage Specials on all my other rifles. Could be expensive if I like it as I'll have to swap all my others over...

    I really like my special 2 stage. No need for the diamond as I will not go that low in pull weight. When I was at a class I had a guy with a bix'n & Andy and I tried that. I prefer the triggertech. Felt more solid and crisp. I actually just purchased another one with this sale going on.

    I’m going to be way out of popular opinion here but I was loaned a TT diamond 2 stage to try. To me it has a substantial amount of creep both by feel and visually. I do not care for the long amount of overtravel that it has either. I don’t see as much about them but I very much so prefer my Geissele super 700 triggers.

    I was super skeptical of it, but the new tt is awesome. I am using the special and have it set how I like it. A slightly heavy first stage light second. I know everybody likes it the other way, but you are all wrong.

    I’ve been doing lighter 1st stage on my trigger. I need to try what you’re doing and see the difference.

    I just put a TT Special Two Stage in one of my rifles, have not had it to the range yet but have done a lot of dry fire and so far like everything about it, 14 oz first and 10 oz second, I like the short first stage just a short smooth squeeze to the wall and a crisp second stage break.

    I ordered mine yesterday.
    The special two stage seems a better deal than the diamond two stage.

    Have all the 2st, the best is tubb t7t, the diamond pro curve TT they just released is just after that. BnA has over travel that the tubb and TT dont have (neither does the geissele super700. I just bought another TT 2st - great price. Buy it - you wont be disappointed if running a BnA. BnA was best of the best 2-3 years back, competition though is moving past it.

    The BnA trigger uses different sear height depending on your action. Mine shipped with the low height for Bighorn Origin action. Anyone running the TT 2stage with Origin?

    I'd like to know how you guys are feeling "over travel" during recoil? If I was gonna pick a truck I'd actually drive them instead of sit in them and act like I'm driving (dry fire)

    I’ve had no issues in dusty conditions. But I will concur, the first stage it’s very short compared to a timney 2 stage I had in my tikka. I like it tho a lot.

    Get a Bix and you will be happy. Kool Aid isn't always that good.
    I have 3 LH TT Diamonds, I'm drowning in cool aid, because it tastes good!
    Does the Bix require any extra inletting?
    I tried a Tubb RH 2 stage and it was amazing, but it requires inletting more than most.
    TT has proven G2G for me, gotta wait for LH2S.

    Bix makes a lefty, you could have tried one in the last year or so while waiting for the TT to be released. No inletting required for my KRG's.

    To my finger, the TT Special is slightly better than the B 'n A and significantly less problematic as far as compatibility. The bna is a great trigger, but the TT is better.

    Buddy had a TT diamond 2 stage and had to send it back. Worked great for about 100rds on a Vudoo, then wouldn't pull into the second stage. You would let off the trigger and go to lift the bolt, which would drop the sear. Pretty sketchy. TT said he got some dirt in there and to flush it out with lighter fluid. That got it working again for another 50rds or so. Swapped it out for a regular diamond on a truck tailgate about 10 minutes before the match started and somehow managed not to lose anything in the grass!

    His replacement diamond 2 stage is running fine so far. The first stage "travel" is close to non-existent. I compare it to a nice 1911 trigger. I personally run the CG Xtreme Model 22 in both of my match guns. It is the closest thing I have found to my Anschutz triggers as far as feel, adjustability, and ruggedness. Not cheap though. $330

    I have a Huber 2 stage set at 1 lb. / 1 lb. and just recently bought a TT 2 stage diamond. When it came I felt the first stage was too light and second to heavy. After adjusting it I am pleased. The travel in the first stage is very different. I did my best to measure the travel in the center of the shoe on each. Huber is 0.225" TT is 0.055". So the Huber is almost four times more travel. This may be good or bad depending on preference and application. The Huber is in my hunting rifle and TT in a comp rifle. That's where they will stay. The TT feels much "quicker" and should respond very well for faster shots. The other thing you will feel is the TT face is completely flat where the Huber has rounded edges.
    My only dislike is it took three weeks to receive it and two days after I installed it they had the labor day sale. Lame 🍺.
    I can't wait to start shooting it.
