They're tuff to find right now but PSA , Brownells , Midway most places sell them anywhere from $40 to $90

Here you go in stock right now $45

I'd recommend the ALG. The cheaper model is around $45 and really does have a better feel while retaining a stock type pull weight.

The reason I ask this is because I would like to have a spare trigger for my AR that I can rework without messing up my original one. I have read a few good articles about it and would like to give it a try.

I played around with one of mine . Stoned it then used a small buffing wheel on a Roto zip . It is smooth as glass . Bent the hammer spring and got the pull down to 4lbs . Man it felt great . I never should have bent the spring though . I got a FTF 2 or 3 time out of every 100rd of LC military ammo . I don't seem to have that problem when it comes to commercial 223 . I put a new spring in and no longer have FTF and the trigger pull is around 5-1/2lbs .

The best decent AR trigger is an RRA either in plain or chrome.

Still has the two stage which I have come to like a lot (from bolt actions that did not have it) and its got a veery nice let-off.

The basic AR trigger sucks and for another $50 you can get one thats almost as good as the Timney and the like

Keep in mind that AR15 triggers are case hardened and stoning it could lead to premature wear.

I was going to say the same thing. It isn't worth it (to me) to accelerate wear on a vital part of the gun. I just buy an upgraded trigger that was done properly.

Brownells is a good place to buy. Also gun show dealers may sell AR parts by the piece. I usually buy a few extra pins and springs to use as spares. Triggers and hammers are around $10-25 IIRC
