trigger

PSA:

ūüó£”HuuRR Durr BoOgEr HooK on ThE BanG SwiTch” thankfully wasn’t said.

Not the usual humor content I post, but I figured maybe some of you guys needed to hear this.

Thoughts?  I hope someone AckSHULLys me with some science that conflicts with what the guy in the video is saying.

Check this out.  You can adjust the rate of fire:

That’s something new (to me anyways).¬† Guys in my Instagram post were saying it has existed on paintball for years haha… classic.¬† I’m not sure how much this specific version is, but they have a version 1.2 on the digitrigger website for $600.

This is how they say it works:

A firearm that is DigiTrigger enabled becomes a hybrid, with two distinct fire control groups. The first and primary one is the mechanical group, which operates exactly as the mil-spec trigger group originally found in the AR-15. The second is a microprocessor based firing system, which operates seamlessly with the mechanical trigger group. Since the second fire control group is software based, the user can choose between preset modes.

Cool stuff.¬† I don’t really have a use for it, but I appreciate the work that went into it.¬† Being a fan of both technology and firearms, I find it interesting at the very least when the two come together.¬† I still have hope that someday as technology continues to progress, a “smart” gun can exist without compromising safety and privacy.

Thoughts? The fudds would love a trigger that was limited to one round every 1.5 minutes.

OH Lawd this is beautiful.  What could possibly go wrong?

Here is a incredibly long video of the installation and function:

Why? ¬† Just…. Whyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy?

If you try to go to the company website¬†triggerpointtechnology.com you’ll see there is a “this site is no long available” message. ¬†Astonishing,¬†I wonder why? *throws money at screen and nothing happens*

I’m holding out for a light and laser switch where I have to lick the barrel, or temple index before it will go on.

TriggerpointThoughts? ¬†Are you guys high-speed enough for such a “system”?

Gat tip: Jeep, Kevin, no uno

Describing a trigger to someone:

FXhummel-M16-ShirtIt’s like that. ¬†The words convey the message though, but yea dudes can get carried away.

Normally I’d just go with a simple “crisp” or “squishy” as catch all descriptions.

Thoughts? Do you say anything more unique than what he mentioned?

Holy dat count on the LaRue Tactical MBT-2S Trigger:

0:23 into the video we see that the total trigger pulls are allegedly at 127581, 129362 and 146485 and still going strong.¬† God I love a good testing rig. ¬†I have no idea what the life is supposed to be on my standard no-frills AR-15 trigger group, but if it’s over 100k color me impressed. ¬†Anyone know?

You can pick up a MBT-2S for $220 at LaRue.  Here are the details:

Sparing no expense, all major components are precision-machined from S7 Tool Steel. The result of this extra effort is a glass-smooth, hyper-consistent trigger that will satisfy even the most scrupulous competition shooter, but also be overly rugged for the battlefield. The MBT-2S breaks crisply at 4.5 lbs (2.5 lb first stage, 2 lb second stage) and has a smooth and positive reset. Made in-house, in Texas, in the USA.

Larue-Tactical*shrug* sounds good to me.  Does ARFCOM still pray to LaRue facing the South daily starting at 5:56:45 AM?

If you want a heavier trigger, you no longer have to mess with the insides of the Glock:

The product is called Safe-Draw, and it’s available for $7 on their website.

Safe-draw-glock-trigger-weightIf it works, and people are looking for that type of thing then great! ¬†Having extraneous stuff hanging on the outside of a weapon you’re betting your life on is rarely a good idea if you ask me. ¬†For $7 you can’t really go wrong though if you just want to “try out” a few different weights before deciding on one and replacing the internals I’d say.

Thoughts?
