I like double triggers. The front hair trigger usually has an adjustment screw to really lighten up the pull. Caution, as you can get it too light and the rear trigger won't set. Most people shoot better with a double set trigger. The only drawback is in cold temps and gloves are worn, be careful as there's not a lot of extra room for bulky gloves and you can set the rig off when you weren't ready. Some double triggers can be fired with both triggers, I would have to look those up to be accurate in their name, others require you to set the rear first and then fire the front. Something like double set vs single set but I don't remember. If you're only hunting and not range shooting then maybe a single trigger with a big trigger guard will work for you. With flint locks a double trigger really helps on accuracy.
