New From KE Arms: SLT-1 Drop-In AR Trigger

A new drop-in trigger for the AR platform has just hit the market; this one operating in a completely unique way. The SLT-1 designed by M&M Manufacturing and now made and distributed by KE Arms has no disconnector. At least not in the traditional sense. The sear maintains contact with the hammer, apparently improving reliability and safety while maintaining an excellent trigger pull. TTAG has requested a review unit, but in the meantime KE’s press release and more photos follow . . .

KE Arms is pleased to announce the release of the SLT-1 Sear Link Technology Trigger.

KE Arms has licensed the manufacturing and distribution rights for the patent pending Sear Link Technology trigger system from M&M Manufacturing.  All components are made and assembled in the USA.

The SLT-1 has been tested thoroughly before release with tens of thousands of rounds in traditional 5.56 AR platforms, .308 AR platforms, 9mm AR pattern blow back carbines, and the SIG MPX




– There is no disconnector for the hammer to drive through, thus creating a more efficient cycle of the bolt simply pushing the hammer out of the way as the gun fires.
– Forces of the bolt on the hammer are not transmitted into any other components of the trigger assembly.
– Constant sear engagement against the hammer means the trigger is always ready to reset and fire

Moving parts are sealed in the underside of the housing making it less susceptible to fouling and debris.

No impact on moving internal parts increases longevity of the trigger system.

The SLT-1 Drops into mil-spec fire control pockets and is retained with standard fire control pins captured by springs inside the housing bushings.


Due to the unique geometry of the trigger, the safety can always be applied regardless of the hammer being down or cocked. When used appropriately this adds another level of safety to administrative handling and clearing of malfunctions.

    This looks like it would be nice in a light weight build.

    It uses springs instead of set screws like a Timney which is the only drop in I have. I like 3.5ish lbs pull weights. The last few I’ve done cheap AR Stoner NIB trigger kits with JP enhanced reliability spring kits. That and some contact surface polishing and I get almost 3.5 lbs. There is smooth creep but for $40 total on sale it’s a steal.

    Critical Capabilities is a lower kit from Brownells that has a real nice milspec trigger. I’ve used that also with the same JP spring kit with good results and it’s $35 for the kit and $11 for the springs. The lower kit you can get without the grip and trigger guard. It’s leaps above all other milspec triggers besides an ALG or FN.

    Now that is truly unique. I like the springs to hold the pins; convenient compared to set screws, but a bit more fritzy to install, I imagine. Look forward to a test.
