Following the announcement of a merger between Zev Technologies and Mega Arms came another awesome announcement. Zev Technologies is introducing their new SSR (Single State Rifle) trigger for AR15 rifles. The Zev SSR is fully adjustable and comes with two hammer springs to give you the option of a 3-3.5lb pull or 5-5.5lb pull. Check out the picture and details below.

The new ZEV Technologies SSR (Single Stage Rifle) Trigger was designed to bridge the gap between the multitude of two stage triggers intended for duty use, and single stage competition triggers.

The ZEV SSR Trigger’s engagement, over travel and reset can be adjusted to personal preference. One of the most unique design factors of the new ZEV SSR Trigger is that all adjustments are under detent retention which eliminates the need for thread locker and the possibility of failure from vibration or improper installation.  Each unit ships with two hammer springs allowing for a 5lb to 5.5lb trigger pull weight or a 3lb to 3.5lb trigger pull weight depending on which hammer spring is used. The trigger bow has been extended for a better user interface allowing the pad of the finger to easily find its natural position when firing.  Get the most out of your duty or sporting rifle with the enhanced features of the ZEV SSR Trigger.

Features:
– Easy User Install Providing A Crisp Single Stage Trigger Break
– Adjustable to Most Lower Receivers for Sear Engagement and Over Travel
– Adjustable Reset For User Preference
– Detent Retained Adjustment Screws
– Durable PVD TiCN, Copper Coating
– 3.5lb or 5.5lb Trigger Pull Depending on Hammer Spring Used
– Extended Trigger Pad

Rainier Arms is the only dealer that currently has the new Zev SSR trigger in-stock and ready to ship. You can snag one now at www.RainierArms.com.

One of the products that has received a ton of buzz this year at SHOT Show is the new CMC Triggers Glock Trigger. It features the pattented and signature CMC Flat Faced Trigger. Everyone I have talked to has absolutely loved this trigger. So far I have not heard any firm release dates or pricing yet but I will be sure to updated you all as soon as I do. If you would like to see more, be sure to follow CMC Triggers on Instagram as well as CMC Triggers on Facebook.

Video 1 focuses on the Buttstock, Video 2 focuses on the Pistol Grip, Video 3 focuses on the Foregrip, Video 4 focuses on the Trigger and Video 5 focuses on the Weapon Light and Video 6 focuses on Optics. Big thanks to guys like Travis and Nate for sharing some knowledge.

I personally run exclusively CMC and Geissele/ALG triggers in my guns. Not because I have to but because they are awesome and I choose to use them. However, this new “Saber” from James Madison Tactical is intriguing purely because of the price point. The Saber is a single stage drop-in trigger with a 3.5-4.0 pound pull weight. Rainier Arms has secured the first run of these triggers at an introductory price of $89.95. I personally have not used one of these triggers but if I wanted to upgrade my stock trigger and couldn’t afford a CMC or Geissele this is something I would consider.

Jen, the General Manager of CMC Triggers, let loose a little secret on her Instagram the other day. On 7/15/16, CMC Triggers will begin offering complete LPKs with your choice of either a Curved or Flat drop-in trigger. I have a bunch of mil-spec trigger groups laying around because I usually upgrade my AR trigger. Being able to just buy the trigger and LPK will be nice as it should equate to a lower overall cost (only one shipping charge, no extra trigger group, etc). I’ll reach out for more information on the CMC Triggers Complete LPK and update you guys as they get closer to releasing them.

If you’re late buying a Christmas present for the gun lover in your life, snag one of BCM’s affordable new PNT (Polished Nickel Teflon) trigger assemblies. BCM’s known for their attention to detail and quality so this trigger should be nothing short of awesome. Details and link are listed below. 

Today we are officially announcing the release of the of the  BCMGUNFIGHTER™ PNT (Polished, Nickel, Teflon) Trigger Assembly (AR-15).

BCM PNT Trigger Assembly 1

BCM quality, modern manufacturing processes, and aerospace coatings are combined to ensure parts last a lifetime while performing far beyond requirements established nearly six decades ago.

The BCM PNT™ Trigger and PNT™ Hammer are a precision machined Mil-Spec AISI8620 investment casting per the USGI TDP (Mil-Spec) for M16/M4 family of weapons. (not to be confused with MIM parts that are very common in the commercial market). 156/157 holes are honed to assist in perfect alignment and a smooth trigger pull.

BCM PNT Trigger Assembly 1

After that, the BCM PNT™ Trigger and PNT™ Hammer then goes through a 3 step heat treat and case hardening process for optimal grain structure alignment, yielding a stronger and more wear resistance product.

BCM PNT Trigger Assembly 1

Polished
The sear engagement surfaces are ground, but then hand polished for an increased smoothness and reduction in friction up to 300% beyond the Mil-Spec.

Nickel
An electroless nickel finish is applied for a smoother trigger pull with less ‘grit’ and reduced felt ‘creep’. Nickel also provides a long lasting finish that will not corrode, rust, or discolor due to oxidation.

Teflon
Teflon particles are embedded in the nickel, further reducing the friction of the interface and ensuring a long lasting coating. This is done on both the BCM PNT Trigger and Hammer in order to provide the maximum benefit allowed by the nickel coating, by augmenting the low friction and corrosion resistance.

BCM PNT Trigger Assembly 1

This assembly includes our impact resistant trigger and hammer pins. They are centerless ground to a fine finish and superior tolerances to ensure compatibility with all MIL SPEC lower receivers built per the USGI TDP.

The BCM Disconnector is stamped from a 1070 material and fine blanked for cleaner edges, double disc ground to precise size. All hammer engagement surfaces are also ground for a super clean reset.

BCM PNT Trigger Assembly 1

The processes and tolerances are matched in the BCM PNT™ Trigger Assembly to create a system better than the sum of its parts.

BCM PNT Trigger Assembly 1

As with all BCM rifle and accessory products, Made in the USA.

MSRP is $65.00

If you’ve been on Instagram or Facebook over the last week or two and follow CMC Triggers you’ve probably seen a sneak peek or two of a special “Crusader” edition of their 3.5lb Flat drop-in trigger.

Only downside is they won’t be in until “first quarter 2016” which could mean a few weeks from now to a few months from now. That’s all we know for now. If you want one, get on the list now at www.DSGArms.com.

**Press Release**

CMC Triggers are undisputed as the finest AR triggers in the world. Precision engineered, hand built, hand tested before they are sent out to market set them apart from other manufacturers.

LanTac USA designed two patented triggers, a curved and a flat bow design. In an effort to maintain our high reputation for exceptional quality products we contacted CMC Triggers to collaborate their propriety manufacturing and engineering processes, ‘Drop In’ trigger with our great looking bow designs.

The sear engagement surfaces are 1-2 RMS (Smoothness, 0 being a mirror finish), this is due to their unique in house manufacturing processes.

Yesterday I happened to run across a post on the ADK Arms Facebook page showing their new ADK Arms Fire Control Group. The name “Fire Control Group” sounds kind of boring and really doesn’t do it justice as this is a great looking upgrade for your AR. The trigger itself is the most visibly upgraded with an aggressive looking longer curve compared the the more pronounced curve of a standard AR trigger. It also has some cool cutouts. ADK says it provides a trigger pull weight of 3.8 to 4 pounds with no take-up or creep. Right now they are offering an intro price of just $59.99 but looks like there are not very many in-stock. If you want to try one out, head on over to www.ADKArms.com and snag one before they are all gone.

ADK Arms fire control group features rugged military-type components carefully prepped to give a smoother trigger pull while maintaining the original geometry for maximum reliability. The trigger is melonite QPQ coated for durability and decrease in friction. Matched with our precision ground hammer, this produces a refined custom trigger kit for the AR-15 that will reduce the weight of pull to as low as 3.8 to 4.0 lbs. with no take-up or creep. Each trigger group is matched and tested prior to shipping. All components are manufactured in house at our manufacturing facility in Illinois.

Trigger set requires installation, but no permanent modification and only simple tools like punches and mallets. The system is compatible with the original hammer unless it has been modified. Recommend Trigger Adjustment Grip Screw for reduction in trigger slack in older AR’s. Fits most AR-15/AR-10 rifles with hammer and sear pin diameters of .154″.

Features:
Upgraded custom trigger

Trigger hammer pins (.154″ diameter).

I held off on posting about PSA’s new EPT for a few reasons. One, the first run sold out extremely fast so I was waiting for it to come back in-stock. Two, the name is a bit misleading as it does not double as an Emergency Pregnancy Test. “Ba Dum Tsh” Okay, so really it was just for the first reason but now that the PSA EPT is back in-stock I figured it was a good time to tell you about it. 

PSA’s EPT starts out as a standard single-stage government-style fire control group. They then finely polish the contact surfaces and then coat the hammer and trigger in a super slick nickel finish. They say the result is “a trigger that is substantially smoother than mil-spec”. It is also a very affordable upgrade at just $39.99.

I think this would be an interesting product to test up against the ALG Defense QMS and especially the ACT Trigger. ALG Defense Triggers tend to cost a little bit more ($45 for QMS and $65 for ACT) but you can typically find a deal with free shipping etc. While I am always looking for a great deal, I think I would still go with the ALG Defense ACT or QMS triggers knowing that they are tuned by Geissele and I have had great experience with them so far. However, if I were looking for the absolute best price on an upgraded trigger group, I would not hesitate to give the new PSA EPT a try. Check them out at www.PalmettoStateArmory.com.

CMC Triggers is introducing another trigger option to their growing lineup. CMC currently offers their very popular Single Stage triggers in both Curved and Flat trigger styles and multiple pull weights as well as their new Two Stage triggers in both Curved and Flat trigger styles with your choice of a 1lb. first stage and 3lb. second stage or 2lb. first and second stage for a combined 4lb. pull. All of these options are great for recreational and competition shooters but someone such as a Police Officer on Patrol would want a trigger with a bit heavier pull to help protect against accidental discharge during high stress situations. This is why CMC Triggers is introducing the Duty / Patrol version of their new 2-Stage Trigger in both Curved and Flat styles. The new Duty / Patrol model will offer a 2lb. set (first stage) and a 4lb. release (second stage) giving it a combined 6lb. pull.

CMC Triggers Duty Patrol Trigger

CMC Triggers Duty Patrol Trigger 2

The Duty / Patrol Two-Stage CMC Trigger Group is a completely self contained, 100% drop-in, fire control group upgrade for the AR-15, and AR-10 family of rifles. Trigger pull is factory pre-set, is not user adjustable and comes in 2lb set with 4 lb release trigger weights. An ultra-crisp trigger with no feel of creep prior to hammer release. Trigger has a Glass-Smooth Break with no feel of grittiness. Trigger components are fabricated from 8620 alloy steel and S7 Tool steel, machined to exacting tolerances and finished for the longest service life possible. Minimal Lock-time is designed into the assembly using controlled hammer weight and balance and activated using a Rocket Wire hammer spring. Positive Trigger Reset allows a quick follow up shot on target. Trigger is easy to install following the included instructions.

The new CMC Trigger Duty / Patrol Triggers should be available for purchase very soon. We will be sure to update you guys as soon as we know when / where these new triggers will show up for purchase first. For now you can head on over to CMCTriggers.com and check out their entire line of drop-in triggers.

LANTAC has some pretty awesome product coming out this year.
