Another advantage of building your own rifle is the ability to customize trigger options. Some of the most popular triggers are simply “drop-in” style triggers that specifically tuned for the consumers liking. Here are a few that are hot sellers for us.

  1. The Timney Impact AR-15 Curved Trigger :

    Timney has been asked for an AR trigger at a lower price without compromising on quality for budget-build AR’s. You asked, Timney listened. Timney’s engineers figured out a way to machine the parts from billet steel (no skimping with metal injection molding or stamped, old-school parts), assemble the triggers, and still hand-test this trigger by our trigger technicians at a price that you asked for!


    Factory set pull weight of 3-4 pounds that will give you a crisp, clean, break. Trigger will drop into all Mil-Spec AR’s. All components are captive in the lightweight, aluminum alloy housing. Hammer is heat treated and machined from S7 tool steel that combines hardness to resist wear with superior impact resistance to withstand heavy use without chipping or breaking. Other components are EDM cut from A2 tool steel, heat treated, and coated in a black carbon nitride finish.

    Installs using your rifle’s original hammer/trigger pins, Timney’s proprietary design eliminates pin walkout.

 2. Triggertech 2-stage Adjustable AR-15 Trigger

Featuring Frictionless Release Technology, this drop-in AR trigger has a short, two-stage action, designed to feel like a 1911 trigger, that provides a true zero-creep break, extremely short overtravel, a sub 0.030″ tactical reset and offers outstanding reliability, even in the harshest environments. Utilizing CLKR Technology, the pull weight is quickly and confidently adjusted in 2oz increments from a set screw with the trigger installed. Due to there being truly zero creep, most shooters report the pull weights feeling ~0.5lbs lighter than a friction based trigger of the same measured pull weight. This trigger bears the adaptable name because changing its pull weight does not affect hammer force so you get dependable primer strikes at every weight.

Frictionless Release Technology, along with hardened 440C stainless steel internal components ensure corrosion resistance and an extended service life. As Frictionless Release Technology does not rely on coating, polishing or lubricating the key engagement surfaces, trigger pulls will be more consistent from shot to shot and after thousands of shots than you ever thought possible. Inteneded for use in Close quarter engagement, harsh environment operations, law enforcement, military, 3 Gun, and varmint hunting.
