AR pattern rifles are endlessly configurable, including the trigger. From binary, single stage, and even to standard Mil-Spec triggers used by law enforcement and the U.S. Military, they all accomplish the same task, dropping the hammer on the firing pin to ignite the primer of the cartridge.
With all the options available on the market it is easy to fine tune your firearm to your needs, whether it is competition, personal-defense, tactical applications, or hunting. Guns.com offers a variety of trigger options from popular brands like Timney, Geissele, CMC and more!
A drop in trigger is a pre-assembled trigger that is easier to install.
The fire control can simply be pinned in place instead of having to install all the parts (Hammer, springs, etc.) separately.
A single stage trigger has one specific trigger pull weight.
A two-stage trigger has two different pull weights. The up-take when first pulling the trigger and the break point weight or “wall” which, when pulled through, releases the hammer.
Draw weight is the amount of force needed to draw a bow. Depending on the type of bow and the strength of the archer the weight varies.
Most hunters set their draw weight between 30-70 lbs.
