A standard trigger or spikes is more then I need just have a feeling when I shoot a nicer lighter trigger I'll want it. I like short triggers on my pistol(p226 with srt trigger).

Chris how do you like the ubr stock? I know its heavy, which I dont think I'll necessarily mind.
I have a JP adjustable trigger on my SPR, and it breaks exactly at 3.5lbs. It's a great single stage trigger for precision use. I do load my own rounds for the SPR, though. I would never use that trigger setup for a combat/duty/training rifle, however. It has a very short travel with virtually no take-up and a very light reset. Not exactly the ideal trigger for non-precision applications. JP triggers are nice for precision and competition, but I would otherwise stay away from them. If you want an aftermarket trigger, the Spikes Combat or Mega Tactical triggers are less expensive triggers that you can benefit from without dropping the $170 for a high-end trigger like the Geissele triggers.
Personally, my next build (16" DMR build) will have a Geissele Super Dynamic Combat Trigger. I got my hands on a Geissele last month for a little bit, and those are SMOOOOOOTH.

As for the UBR, that stock is designed to be heavier to counter-balance the rifle. If you have a longer barrel and you have a heavier match type barrel like a Noveske stainless or the BCM SS410, the UBR will give you better balance to move the COG point further back. For lighter rifles, the UBR makes it ass-end heavy, which some people like for better/faster barrel swinging while transitioning between targets, but I know some people don't like it like that.
