Rimfire conversion tough on triggers?

Customer service rep at Rock River Arms told me that the blowback action of rimfire conversion units have a propensity for breaking their triggers.Have any of you found it to be true of two-stage triggers only or does it apply to single stage ones as well?

on a GOOD ar u wont have a problem. i have several tac sol complete uppers from 6" to 16" shoot them on any of my guns. tactical machining lowers. Daniel defense uppers usually. my 3 gun is an old colt 1/9 skinny shot 5 k thru it in .22. cant shoot any more. dont have time. take i the 6" upper with me. use on my work lower with a giessle sgl stage.over seas a lot.plink at pigeons off the embassy roof at nite. with a gemtech sea hunter titanium "can,"clean about ever3oo Rd's. hope this helps.

u couldn't run fast enough to give me anything by r/r to bet my life on techs are morons also. ..cheers

Can't see how that makes any sense. That trigger should be able to survive any .22 conversion.

Actually a .22 is hard on the hammers because the bolt hits the hammer at a steep angle. (90 degrees vs much less on a ramped .223 carrier) I have broken a few hammer pins on my .22 Spikes over the years and seen it happen on other .22 ar's. The only triggers I run on .22 ar's are GI style because in generally .22 uppers won't run right with match triggers in my experience.

As a kid after umpteen thousand rounds with a Ciener I had a Bushmaster hammer peened at the notch a ridiculous amount then it broke.

Now I have better stuff and they run great, filthy but great. I built up another lower so I didn't have to worry about cleaning the trigger assembly on my match rifle.

Only issue I've had recently was having to remove metal from the bottom of the bolts on a Spikes and CMMG. They were low to the point that the AR Gold hammer was binding against them during recoil. Maybe that was the issue with the RRA.

It had a bit of a break in period. When I first got it it would only run on Federal plated bullets then later it got better and better and pretty much runs on anything now. Only issue I have is chambering the first round with some ammo it some times needs to have to bolt pushed closed by hand.
