Which brand do you recommend and why?  Is there much of a difference? 
So far I have found:  
Lyman Trigger Pull Gage Electronic Digital 0 to 12 lb for about $47.99
RCBS Trigger Pull Gage Premium 2 oz to 8 lb for about $35.99

I just got the Lyman a week ago and am pleased with it so far, easy to use, easy to read display, stores away neatly and compact in its own case.

Never used the RCBS.

I've had good luck with the Lyman.  It's extremely important to position and pull the trigger exactly the same way every time - slow steady pull.  It seems to work best to have the butt of the rifle on a sturdy table and the muzzle pointed straight up.

Lyman Trigger Pull Gage Electronic Digital 0 to 12 lb for about $47.99 .......+2 this is a good product. And with it going to 12 pounds you can weight the large mouth bass at the lake with it. Kind of a 2 for 1 deal.

 

In all honestly It is a durable (if i haven't broke it yet) item. I use mine daily and it is very consentient

 I have the RCBS. You don't get the same reading every time , you have to have it in the same position on the trigger and the readings are pretty close. Gives you a fair average.
 It works for me, but i'm no gunsmith.

  Got to agree with timber, pull trigger exactly the same place and at the same angle with stock on a hard surface. Pull 10 times, then hit your average button.Wink

Bought the Lyman yesterday.  Gonna see what my Savage Accu-Triggers are set at and see about lowering them a little.  I thought they were pretty good until I got my 700 trigger done!

I use the Lyman, and usually measure trigger pull with the rifle laid flat. Do several readings and use the average capability.

I also use mine to weigh rifles.
