trigger

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.

THIS is how you make a video:

I talked about Tac-Con’s triggers and a previous cool video of theirs about a year ago.  I also by the looks of it, talked a lot of shit about the fake AUTO position the trigger can go into.  I guess I matured over the past year because that doesn’t seem like that big of deal to me anymore *shrug*.  Sometimes I get in the mood to just talk shit on tangents you know?  Anyway back to the triggers.. they look promising.  Here’s more about that 3rd mode:

The 3MR is a drop-in 3-mode fire control system with Safe, Semi-Automatic, and Tac-Con™’s patented 3rd Mode. The 3rd mode has a positive reset that dramatically reduces the split times between shots. The positive reset characteristic is achieved by transferring the force from the bolt carrier through the trigger assembly to assist the trigger back onto the front sear. As a result, this gives the firearm the fastest reset possible. Both semi and 3rd mode positions exhibit a non-adjustable 4.5 pound trigger pull weight.

You can head over to their website and check them out.  I know some people aren’t going to like the prices… $400 for an AR-15 Trigger, $400 for an AR-10 trigger, and $350 for the AK-47 one.  It’s a bold move considering established leaders like Geissele come in at quite a bit lower price.  As always the market will decide if $400 is worth it.

LOL at the nod to Office Space with the “damn it feels good to be a gangster” track and by Tanneriting the photocopier.

P.S. If you don’t know Chet Faker (the guy singing the song in the video)… he also sings a cover of one of my favorite “There are girls at this party, lets put on something they will dance to and make bad decisions” songs by Blackstreet… yea it’s No Diggity.  Chet Faker Cover can be listened to here.  So many quotable lines in that song…

Getting paid is a forte, each and every day / true player way.  <— #ENDO

Speaking of triggers, I made this up a while back.  If you guys haven’t already figured it out, I crack myself up NON-STOP.  I’m lucky I don’t have an assistant because he/she would probably want to murder-suicide the both of us:

Video game site Kotaku takes a look:

If the safety is off, or if the gun is loaded without you being aware of it, keeping your finger off the trigger will ensure that you’re using it safely. Until you are ready to fire the gun, until you are ready to destroy what you’re pointing at, you should keep your finger off the trigger. It’s far too easy to accidentally pull the trigger because of a spasm or startled response to something.

Mostly, but there’s no reason to have your finger on the trigger even if there is a safety and you “know” that it’s on.

Check out the full article over at Kotaku.
