Upcoming LaRue 2-Stage Trigger and Giveaway

Is anyone here a LaRue fan?  If so, you might be excited to know that are bringing a new trigger to market–The MBT (or Meticulously Built Trigger).  It is a 2 stage trigger built from S7 Tool Steel.

One of the best improvements you can make (aside from shiny new furniture, of course) is upgrading the trigger on your AR.  Having a smooth-breaking, super-consistent trigger that is also durable enough for the battlefield is a worthy upgrade.  Hopefully I can get my hands on one and actually validate the previous statement (you know, except for the battlefield part).


The MBT 2-Stage trigger has a 4.5 lb break (1st stage at 2.5 lbs, 2 lbs at the 2nd stage).

They are made in-house at LaRue in Texas.  They will be available December 1st, but you can preorder for $249.

And they are also running a Giveaway.  50 Days of 50 triggers.  You can enter here.  It is a link to their Facebook page, and they do ask for your mailing address.  But hey, you could win a $250 trigger… 🙂

    Am i the only person who likes single stage?

    • nova3930

      Nope. I buy ALG ACTs for that very reason…

      • Mark N.

        I bought the QMS, which I think is a bit stiffer, but very crisp. Haven’t measured the pull, I’m guessing 7 lbs, but it still is very new. No play, no mush, short return. Love it.

    • No your not—-

    250 clams for it eh? Sounds like another LaRue rip off

    Inb4 Mark shills to LaRue’s defense “muh dillo dust” “muh pocket constitution”

    Geiselle/ALG all the way.

    • JumpIf NotZero

      Like them or not, there are things LaRue makes better than anyone else.

      Ironic that your derpy impression of LaRue fans is equally fanboy biased… Just on the opposite pole.

      • That Guy

        Not a fanboy of anything, I just enjoy my Geiselle SSA-E and ALG ACT because they work well, also because I scored my SSA-E for $180 but that’s besides the point. My preferred trigger now is actually Hiperfire Hipertouch 24E, nice trigger, smooth and crisp, short take up, light pull, and takes care of pesky lower quality 5.56 with harder primers.

        Note I was merely poking fun at LaRue, Mark can be ass sometimes and I may not like those that over zealously defend him but I quite enjoy my T1 mount from them, dill dust is still shit though. I’ll stick with my own mix for seasoning.

        • TexasPigHunter

          Agree with you on the Hipertouch24E … its a odd design that has some of the traditionalist squawking but damn if it isn’t pretty much a high-end bolt action like trigger for the AR.

          As for the Dillo dust … the feral pigs like it … and I like them so it all works out!

  • gggplaya

    Geiselle is cheaper and built to perfection. so what does this offer to command a higher price?

    • Nicks87

      It says LaRue… I’m still trying to figure out why their .308 mags cost $80.

    • JumpIf NotZero

      Pretty much this. It would have to be an amazing trigger for me to uproot the three Geiselles I own.

  • TiC

    LaRue really thinks a lot of themselves to put out their first attempt at a trigger at a higher price than a Geiselle. I’ll pass on this until IF and when they’ve proven themselves to be better than Geiselle.
