Allen Lardieri And The Geissele Factory

I was bracing for the Triggerpop guild, but they never show up:

Allen Lardieri with a good video, with lots of good info.  I have stock triggers on both my ARs, and I’ve shot Geissele triggers and initially convinced myself I didn’t need one.  After hearing Bill Geissele talk though I just feel bad about myself and now want to buy one haha.

Geissele-TriggerAs I mentioned in the past, whenever I see 20 minutes on a video I immediately roll my eyes but lately (like this time too) I’ve been pleasantly surprised!  Just as a precaution though I made myself a cheese / meat / crackers plate and made sure my glass was full.  Bill is sure an easy guy to listen to.

haha Allen is such a trigger geek, It’s awesome.  I wonder if he got invited to Geissele after he made the Terrorists Never Win video I blogged about featuring his Geissele build.

Make sure you check out Geissele if you’re not familiar.

I’ve been buying those reduced weight yellow JP springs and cutting my hammer down a little bit to get a “speed trigger” at 4.5lbs on several ARs now totalling about $14 shipped. I cannot tell the difference between that and a geissele trigger. Not sure what the hype is all about. I know the difference is in the presumably hand stoned and fitted edges but pulling on the hammer while activating the trigger gives those edges a nice ‘broken in” and perfectly mated surface of contact.

That’s awesome if it works that well!

Anyone have any experience with the ALG triggers? Made in the same factory and cost less than $100? Sounds like a good bargain.

Is that the company he said his wife runs?

Geissele is very generous to the local shooting sports in Southeastern PA. He gives a lot of his products away to matches and leagues for prizes.

That’s awesome he gives back like that.

The scene with him dancing in the shop is priceless.

I just can’t get over how clean that shop is. Maybe I’m just too used to small, old shops with busted up machines.
