Every year the good folks at LaRue Tactical put on a great holiday sale. This year you can pick up one of their fantastic AR triggers for $89 or $79 each when you buy up three of them. Only $79 for a good AR trigger is a very good deal, but $79 for one of the best triggers on the market….
That can only mean one thing. It’s almost Christmas and LaRue Tactical loves to troll Geissele.
The above Instagram post was gone when I refreshed the feed. Apparently they thought better of it.
The caption might be a smidge confusing, but the point is that a LaRue trigger is half the cost of a Geissele trigger…when the Geissele is on sale at over half off. So, according to “convince the wife math,” that’s over 100% off! She could argue with this “math” but she won’t. She’ll just look at you like you’re stupid and walk away.
There’s no way LaRue has normal margins on their MBT triggers even if they have in-house EDM machines, which they do. I’m convinced LaRue has priced the MBT trigger so low just to stick it to Geissele.
The Geissele SSA has an MSRP of $349 and is $159 when on sale and the Larue is $79. It’s worth mentioning the Geissele trigger is a MIMed part, meaning it’s injection molded metal which greatly reduces the cost (and quality) per part.
Larue uses EDM’d S7 plate steel which is as good as it gets in the trigger world. Sure, Geissele triggers are very good products, and a MIMed part is quite acceptable. But with an MSRP of $349 I don’t want nice, or acceptable.
Mark, if you are reading this, please bring back the UU kits and look up 375 Raptor. Bill, I bet you are more of an 8.6 guy.
