Hey everyone, hope your week is going great! Some of you may remember a post I did a few months ago about Phase 5 Tactical and their line of cool accessories for AR-15′s. (FYI. They are about to announce two new battle ready components next month that are going to be really awesome. I’ll be sure to update you as more information is made public.) One of the components that I discussed in that post was the Phase 5 Tactical Winter Trigger Guard. Since then I have had the pleasure of using the WTG on my rifle (Thanks Ken!). Take a few minutes to read the review and then check out the pictures below.
The Phase 5 Tactical Winter Trigger Guard was designed to give you an aggressive looking trigger guard while at the same time give you additional space for your trigger finger. This is very helpful for anyone who uses tactical gloves while shooting or those who use an extend bolt release.
It seems like most other companies that make trigger guard upgrades just copy each other’s designs and then tweak it a little bit and put their logo on it. Well not Phase 5 Tactical. Don’t quote me on this but I believe this is the first trigger guard that has to be registered as a weapon all by itself. :) Instead of just using the usual rounded trigger guard they came up with an elongated “W” shape which looks totally cool.
The WTG is a drop in replacement for OEM trigger guards and installs very easily with a roll pin in the rear and a 4-40 allen bolt in the front. The fit is very snug with no wobble or movement at all. It is machined from a solid piece of metal and then given a black anodized hard coat to increase durability and protect from corrosion.
I was very impressed with the overall look of the WTG. There is very little if any visible machining lines and the hard coat is very consistent and smooth. I also noticed that it seems like there is more room using the Phase 5 Tactical WTG verses many of the other popular Enhanced Trigger Guards. I have tried most of the other trigger guards out there and overall the Phase 5 Tactical Winter Trigger Guard is number one on my list.
Phase 5 Tactical offers a lot of other really nice options for the AR-15. Take a few minutes to check out the pics I took below and then head on over to Phase 5 Tactical’s website.
