I have other guns to protect home and family. I actually froze my EDC once before testing. just to see. It functioned perfectly

Tape... its all good. You have been a valued contributor to this thread. Your advice is solid. I simply don't enjoy being so cold my fingers burn. As I get older, my hands and feet suffer more from the effects of cold weather. I work outside, and if I can limit my exposure, no matter how much I want to play with a new toy, then I will wait for warmer weather. It was in the 60s here on Monday, and it was time to have some fun with something I have wanted for a while now, a 9mm carbine.

I dropped in one of the palmetto triggers, it's great! Very smooth and clean break, I paired it with a set of JP reduced pull springs and I really like how it feels. Have not had any issues with ftf.

This is the trigger, it's honestly just a really nice mil spec but it's basically one of the nicest triggers you can get without spending over $100.

Thats good to know. I actually wasn't horrified by my factory JRC trigger, like I have been with both my Mil-spec AR triggers. If I were shooting for the tightest groups with my JRC, I would consider replacing the trigger, but my use for the JRC is a fun plinker, maybe home defense, and I think its adequate for that purpose. I'm going to shoot mine for a while and see how the trigger breaks in. That PSA trigger is a good price. That might be the one to use, considering the two Timney AR triggers I have were close to $200 each.

That looks interesting. Mine broke in pretty good, its pretty smooth, but does have some take up. For $30 bucks, Id take a crack at that.

If you ever take a close look at the contact points of stock AR triggers it's a rough grind, and that's being generous to some. You could polish the stock trigger but it is tedious and you must take care not to remove too much material. For $30 it's worth it to me. I replaced the trigger in my AR with the palmetto, and then did my JR. The cool thing is they both have the same trigger pull now, so it's like shooting the same rifle but different bang.

Do these triggers take the creep out? I like a crisp trigger with no slop.
Id rather it be stiff, and when you move it, it goes bang.

I was seeking the same so I opted for the Timney, yes it's 200$ but there is absolutely no creep and it just snaps. It is a unpredictable snap which is great if you are bench shooting for precision groups but not so for a HD gun unless you are very disciplined and never finger the trigger until it's time to fire.

I took the JR and the AR to the range today.

100 yards

Again I put about 200 through the JR with none issues. I shot fiocchi, magtech, blazer brass, Winchester white box, all cycled fine, although I was not impressed with the fiocchi it seemed underpowered.

I'm shooting with a 1x red dot. I'm Not the best shot - but I'm happy with the results. At 100 yards the dot was basically as big as the black of the target, a larger target would have been more ideal with the 1x. The 3x I have on my AR was a little more accurate.

The JR keeps growing on me, and I love how at 100 yards the 9mm still seems to be more than acceptably accurate.
