I'm using AR 15 parts in both my 308"s & they have no problem firing off the primer , so why would they offer the 308 for more $$ , than the AR 15 ?

I have read of some using them when they first came out , with no problems . Just makes ya wounder if indeed there are differences between the two types .
Maybe they had problems in the past . I could get one & see if I have problems & just put in on of my 5.56 if I do .
I also see that Rainer arms had them on sale for $ 159.00 for Labor day sale. There is a code they e-mailed me , to get that price.

Heavier hammers and stiffer springs are the answer to that, and it's common in the giant variance based on the rounds from other countries.
If you don't shoot surplus 7.62 ammo from foreign countries (and only shoot .308 Win rounds or US NATO rounds), then you really don't need to worry about whether you're using an AR-15 trigger or one specific to a .308 AR.

The safety leve now has noticable play in it. I don't know why this has occurred, but we have disassembled and reassembled it twice now looking for a cause. Fortunately it still works, but I do not care for the slop in the mechanism. If anyone has any insight into this, maybe you could share with me.
The sear is okay, but not nearly as good as the RRA two stage match trigger group I had installed in my AR-15. That is a tad disappointing, but not a deal breaker. I can live with what the Timney will do in this platform. It would not be acceptable in a competition bolt gun, but that is not what this trigger group was intended to be anyways. It is still a vast improvement over the stock trigger pull.
I missed an opportunity to proof the gun at a competition this weekend, as I was conscripted to do some cooking for a crowd instead. So many social engagements, so little time. I will avail myself of the next opportunity, and hopefully also have what I need to complete the 16" Oracle upper assembly so I can test it out on the range as well.

Your std trigger assembly may have been a tighter fit on top of your lever . I have seen some people have to fit the triggers of std. AR's to get the safety selector to work properly .
The Timney is a completely different set up & you may have lost some interference fitment .
I have had some that are tight fitting & some that are on the loose side . As long as the lever is locking in the detents for the two positions (I assume we are talking semi auto rifles ) There should not be a problem .
You can check for proper spring travel & make sure there is not a burr interfering with the detents upward travel . I have also seen a lot of these safeties that are machined sloppy . (too big of holes for detent or too deep )

Unexpected loose fitting parts when I have worked on something get my hackles up. There's always that slight paranoia that I've done something bad and it is going to bite me. Not a good place to be with a firearm.
