    So the Mossberg OEM trigger is nice, but more than once I've been bitten by the "lightning didn't strike" misfire (where the lightning insert didn't get pulled all the way back before the trigger got pulled) and had to short-cycle the bolt to reset and try again. As a result I'm looking at replacement triggers. The ones I see are the Timney and the Jard. Are there any others? Especially, is anyone aware of any two-stage triggers for this gun?

    I have the Jard - cost me around $100. Very light, excellent trigger. I'm not aware of any two-stage triggers for the MVP, though.

    Why would anyone want a 2 stage? I don't get it. A set trigger I get, 2 stage I don't. Explain?

    Any blade safety style trigger takes some change in technique to get used to it and not have those issues. Blade has to be fully depressed, avoid putting the blade inside a knuckle crease, especially if you have big sausage calloused mechanic fingers like me.

    Factory trigger wasn't horrible to me, not nearly as good as an avg Savage 1.5lb'der but not horrible like the average $$$$ aftermarket AR15.

    I really don't care if the trigger is a single stage or two stage trigger as long as it's a good one. Me personally, I'm happy with the trigger in the MVP. My AR does have a two stage trigger but I wanted a good trigger in it and it seems all the good ones are two stage. I was more interested in the pull weight (I specifically wanted 4 or 4.5#) and the quality of the feel while operating it.

    Some people do have a preference. They like the feel of there being two separate stages.

    There are books written about two stage triggers - some don't see the point, some swear by them. I'm in the second category, obviously. I just like that little bit of slack until I feel just the tiniest bit of resistance before a clean, crisp break. For me it just makes each shot more consistent and predicable.

    As you said, the factory trigger isn't horrible - and if I can't find a two stage I may well leave it as is.

    Two stage vs single stage, cock on opening vs cock on closing, last shot bolt hold open vs no bolt hold open. They're all tied in pros vs cons. It all boils own to what you prefer.

    Funny you should mention bolt hold open. I like it in semi-autos but fine it annoying in bolt actions. No idea why. Both tell you they magazine is empty...

    Has anyone swapped out your 308 on the MVP LC for a 6.5 Creedmoor if so with how much issue (ie: drop in or gunsmith) and what brand barrel

    I'm not sure. Someone has at least looked at swapping barrels on a 7.62 MVP since there is a list of companies in the very first post that gets updated when new information comes up that can do it. I would check with Xring or Blackhole weaponry first but it would not hurt to check the other ones on the list either.
