You’ll find follow up shots to be a breeze thanks to its insanely fast reset. Its wide, comfortable trigger blade is easy to control and leads to an icicle-crisp break. The blade sits further back in the trigger well, leaving plenty of room if you have bigger hands or are wearing gloves.

Key Features

  • 4.5-lb. pull, single stage 
  • Ultra-fast Quik-Klik™ reset you can feel and hear for rapid follow-up shots 
  • Virtually no creep to help you stay on target 
  • Exceptionally crisp —breaks like an icicle 
  • Wide hybrid trigger blade that combines the best aspects of curved and flat triggers for incredible comfort, control, and speed 
  • Elementary installation — simple and fast with no set screws to tighten 
  • NoWay™ Take-up — Most triggers allow a degree of movement prior to engaging the sear, but not with RISE triggers. Measurements done on RISE triggers show no trigger take-up before engaging the sear, so trigger movement begins with the pull required to move and actuate the sear to release the hammer 
  • Interior parts are S7 tool steel with heavy-hit hardening then black nitride finished for enhanced strength and corrosion resistance 
  • LiteMite™ Hammer — Reduces weight while packing a powerful punch 
  • Contained in a blue anodized housing that’s machined from a solid block of 6061 aluminum, which is more durable and longer lasting than punch-tin housings to help the trigger perform flawlessly under a variety of conditions 
  • Precision machined with handcrafted fine-tuning 
  • Individually inspected 
  • Includes free anti-walk trigger pins for secure installation 
  • Fits AR-style platforms built to mil-spec dimensions — calibers include .223/5.56, .308, 6.5, 9MM, and more, making it an excellent option for PCCs 
  • Backed by the RISE More-Bang-for-Your-Buck Performance Guarantee and Lifetime Warranty
