Geissele Automatics Super Semi-Automatic Enhanced SSA-E Two Stage AR-15 Trigger .154"
- Uses Mil-Spec .154” trigger pins for maximum compatibility with lower receivers
- Works with 5.56/.223 and .308 AR pattern rifles
- Designed after the same trigger used by U.S. Special Forces
- Smooth two stage 3.5 lb. trigger pull
- EDM wire cut from heavy duty tool steel
- Great for precision shooting and reliable for home defense/duty use
When building or upgrading your AR-15 rifle, one of the most important components is the trigger. There are many triggers out there so you must ask yourself what are you are going to do with the rifle. Are you going to use it for plinking at the range, home defense, competition, or long-range precision shooting? The answer of this question will help you to understand what trigger you will need. The Geissele Automatics Super Semi-Automatic Enhanced (SSA-E) Trigger is designed to be used in each of these scenarios. It is built off of the chassis of the Geissele SSA Trigger while providing the enhanced trigger control, weapon accuracy, and reliability of a two-stage trigger. It features a reduced first and second stage pull weight and crisp, consistent break so that you can build muscle memory to know exactly when the shot will be fired every single time. This results in a trigger that is excellent at long range shooting and is still reliable enough to be used in a home defense or duty gun. The Geissele SSA-E is a great do-it-all trigger that will enhance the capabilities of your AR-15 substantially.
Geissele Automatics manufactures confidence, offering quality triggers and components for the warfighter and competitor. They were established in 2004 with the mission to build the highest quality, reliable triggers for competition and their first trigger, the Hi-Speed National Match trigger, was so popular that they were asked by the Department of Defense to produce a select-fire trigger for the United States Special Operations. Again, it was a success and Geissele decided to bring a semi-automatic version to the civilian market for law enforcement and personal protection.
Ratings & Reviews
I previously had stock and then MBT-1s straight bow triggers installed in my rifles I installed two ssa-e triggers the difference is like night and day. My accuracy and shooting enjoyment improved. The feel of the trigger is awesome with short reset, smooth butter like 1st stage and crisp and light second stage with well defined wall Great trigger!
99 Gritty triggers but this aint one.
by GameWithGregHD -
Excellent control. No Grit. Easy enough install. At the 25 yard range i was able to make some sub MOA groups the size of my pinky nail, while supporting my rifle. If you have been dry firing your rifle/pistol and have been practicing, it will shine here when you upgrade.
I see why people say the SSA-E is the best
by Adam -
I literally can’t imagine a better universal AR trigger. Had an ALG ACT, which was as good as a stock mil-spec can get. The SSA-E is vastly better. Perfect control for every situation.
Wow! Worth the money
So this was my first 2 stage trigger. I put it in my lower and it is amazing. Very crisp. The worst part is I went back and forth for about 3 months on whether to invest in this. I should have just done it instead of waiting. Everyone knows you get what you pay for but for some reason it’s so easy to talk yourself out of nice things. If you can afford it I highly recommend getting it.
Seconds matter; Geissele responds!
by Emile -
Imagine a fire control system so well engineered that when called upon, it responds like a Ferarri; Geissele is THAT tool!! And the Primary Arms, talk about the best customer service & fastest shopping. I placed an order from Los Angeles at 3:30 am. I get an email within two hours that it’s been shipped! Whaaaaaat?! Amazon needs to learn from Primary Arms. If you’ve read down this far, than let me say this: a weapon without Geissele trigger system is a gamble not worth taking.
<br>Buy this trigger!! The end!
Perfect for SPR/DMR
by J E -
Perfect trigger for the SPR/DMR rifle build. Smooth take up (slack), extremely light break, crisp reset. Easy install backed by an top-notch company and great customer service from both PA and Geissele. 10/10 would buy again.
The best trigger ever.
by Myers -
I put my Geissele SSE two stage in to day. It's the best trigger ever. Put in a S&W MP15 5.56.It broke on the first stage at 2.1 and last one at 1.4.Very clean and crisp all the way throw. I well buy another. Love it.
I'm an Idiot for not buying this sooner.
by Allen -
Best trigger I've ever owned and I own several to end triggers.
<br>10 minutes to install and pull is smooth as glass with 1st stage at 2.2 lbs and 2nd stage 1.1 lbs.
<br>This trigger is better than you could ever imagine.
<br>If you want all you can out of your gun, get this trigger.
<br>Primary Arms is the only place to go and the Geissele SAA-E is the trigger to have
by PAVEL -
I wondered for the longest time if it's really worth spending this kind of money for a trigger. And as many others have said, yes it is.<br>I got this for my new 300 Blackout build and also used with my old proven 556 upper.<br>My groups have tightened up by almost 1/2 inch at 100 yards and I have never experienced such an amazing control over my firing pattern!<br>Incredibly light 1st stage and then a nice and perfectly clean brake at 2nd stage.<br>This is going into all of my future builds and into my old rifles. Don't hesitate and be sure that your money will be well spent on this or any other Geissele trigger!
by Robert -
I got this as an upgrade for my DPMS G2 308. The stock trigger seemed ok but I wanted a two stage for hunting. All I can say is what a difference! My accuracy improved dramatically at the range and I can't wait to get it out in the field. I will be buying another one for my AR 556!
Great Trigger & Predictable.
This is a great trigger & it's a bonus when you can find them on sale @ Primary Arms - (Great Company). I have (2) of the SSA-E triggers installed in AR type rifles. This is one of the best ways to improve your weapon & make it more accurate. If you are a new shooter take care & practice with the new Geissele product because they are so much lighter than the milspec triggers, but they are very predictable.
Picked up the SSA-E trigger and just finished installing it. Extremely easy and everything works as it is supposed to. Feels amazing when dry firing can't wait to make it to my outdoor range and put lead down range.
Great service fast delivery from PA
by Navajo Nation Rancher
I bought this then went on sale. Still a nice trigger it has a hard reset and even though it has a nice 1st stage the 2nd even though it says 1.2 lbs. feels tougher/heavier than my Timney 3lb 1 stage but I like how it takes up the 1st stage and breaks on the second. Total control of how/when you want to send it. This trigger in conjunction with a Wilson Combat Super Sniper 20" barrel PRS stock and Vortex 2.5-10x32 Viper HS LR XLR recticle Black Hills 77grn IMI Razor core 77grn Hornady 75grn Superformance equals groups 1" or even less on good day @ 300 yds consistent accurate hits out to 1100yds and a lot of dead coyotes and crows.
I bought the Geissele SSA-E trigger from PA 6 months ago and it really makes a difference. This trigger is way better than the LWRC standard AR trigger. If you don't already have one of these for your AR consider getting one. The trigger is extremely light and the SSA or G2S might be better a choice if you like a slightly less crisp trigger. I picked it up with the Geissele SuperSCAR trigger with the Black Friday deal. Thanks PA!
Best AR trigger
I have owned a few different triggers ( wilson combat JP enterprises CMC) but after installing this trigger I will never buy anything else. The two stage is nice and crisp you know exactly when you are about to fire a round off. Easy to install and works like a dream.
Love this trigger
I ordered this on 1/7/16 Primary Arms sent it out the next day. It arrived today 1/11/16. I purchased this to replace my current trigger (purchased the Spikes Tactical Enhanced lower parts kit). So far it is great. Never installed the previous trigger due to some problems with fitting (had a local gunsmith do it who had to trim the sides of the hammer a tiny bit). This trigger took me about 10 minutes install (I watched every youtube video out there on how to install it). Everything sat correctly and feels amazing. I have yet to put any rounds through it but if I run into any problems I will edit my review. Definitely going to recommend this to any of my friends currently building AR15 / AR15 variants. Not the first time I have done business with primary and will definitely not be my last.
Top notch product
Best trigger I've found. 3rd one purchased for a third build...will be putting one all future builds.
