BREAKING: New Information in the Mossberg Drop-In Triggers Suits

For obvious reasons we’ve been keeping on top of any developments in this lawsuit by Mossberg against effectively all of the manufacturers of drop-in AR-15 triggers (comparison review of every drop-in on the market). Yesterday, I posted about some “prior art” that these manufacturers may likely use in their defense — attempting to prove that […]

The AR-15 Drop-In Trigger Roundup

There may be a zillion aftermarket triggers for the AR platform, but there’s a fairly finite number of drop-in units. In fact, in the photo above you’re looking at very nearly every drop-in trigger available — plus a standard, 3-piece unit — and a couple that aren’t quite on the market yet. After shooting with […]

New and New-ish: Various AR-15 Drop-in Triggers

At SHOT Show 2015, I ran across a couple of drop-in AR-15 triggers that I don’t believe I had seen before. One was RISE Armament’s RA-535, and the other was KE Arms’ Drop-In Trigger. Both are on the way for reviews, and will be great to compare against the Elftmann Tactical ELF Match Trigger, the […]

Torture Test: ShootingSight TAV-D TAVOR Trigger

ShootingSight isn’t quite the brand name that Timney and Geissele are. As such, all of the positive reviews of its TAV-D TAVOR trigger pack — like mine from a couple weeks ago — are great, but there have still been quite a few questions about durability and reliability in adverse conditions. I figured I’d throw […]

Gear Review: ShootingSight TAVOR Trigger Unit

At the time of this writing, I know of three companies working on replacement trigger packs for the IWI TAVOR SAR: Timney, Geissele, and ShootingSight. If you haven’t heard of ShootingSight don’t feel bad; they’re a small “mom & pop” type shop out of Cincinnati, which first started out making aftermarket aperture sights for competition […]

Gear Review: Timney Tavor Trigger

Timney Triggers is now shipping its trigger pack replacement for the IWI Tavor. I was so freakin’ happy with Timney’s trigger for my Mosin that there was no question about getting my mitts on this thing as soon as it was ready. I had one concern though: how much of a difference could it actually make, […]

Ask Foghorn: What Makes a Good Trigger?

Our fearless leader received an email from one of our readers. “It seems people are always complaining about this trigger or that, or talking up the smooth-as-butter qualities of some high-end revolver they’ve just acquired. I claim almost no idea of what to look for in a trigger, and what idea I can claim comes mostly from reading […]

Gear Review: Timney AR-15 Triggers

I was walking down the aisles at the NRA Convention when the Timney Triggers booth caught my eye. A gigantic banner above their booth proclaimed that they produced “The World’s Finest Triggers.” I couldn’t resist. “You make the best triggers, eh?” I asked. “Yes, we do!” the representative behind the table responded. “Prove it!” I […]
