HiperFire Releases TH-24 “C” Tarheel Trigger

HiperFire (one on my personal favorite triggers out there… as they designed something novel instead of making a wheel rounder) has announced the release of their TH-24 trigger in collaboration with Tarheel 3-gun. The trigger is in essence the 24-C, but adds in a fantastic nickel-based coating and revised geometries to make the C even better.

I got to try one of the prototypes (and had to keep my mouth shut) back at SHOT this year and suffice it to say (now that I can speak), this is one seriously bad-arse booger-switch.


Full Press Release Below:

June 19, 2015: HIPERFIRE (www.hiperfire.com) and Tarheel 3-Gun
(http://tarheel3gun.com/) announces the immediate availability of the
HIPERTOUCH® Tarheel 24 (TH24) trigger system. Tarheel 3-Gun invited HIPERFIRE’s match sponsorship early in 2013. Since then, shooters from around the country have won HIPERFIRE®’s triggers off the prize tables and compared shooting notes that has established HIPERFIRE’s good reputation not only for trigger design innovation, but most importantly performance and reliability. HIPERFIRE is very appreciative of Tarheel 3-Gun’s role in cementing HIPERTOUCH® triggers’ place in high performance shooting. So, HIPERFIRE and Tarheel 3-Gun have now taken the next step to jointly promote a new signature trigger and further promote the shooting sports in gen eral, because as we all know, shooting the best equipment is not just for 3-gun. HIPERFIRE didn’t think it could improve on the 24Competition product offering, but it has. Your trigger finger will feel the difference between the 24C and the TH24 as a defi nite step up. It sports a HIPERSHOE® finger rest with Tarheel colors and a Nickel based enhanced plating exclusive to the TH24 making the pull even smoother and more responsive with an MSRP of $275. HIPERFIRE has wholesale and OEM purchase pro grams.

HIGH PERFORMANCE FIREARMS LLC (d.b.a. HIPERFIRE®) is a Minnesota limited liability company
located in the Minnesota Minneapolis-St. Paul metro area organized in 2011 to design, manufacture, and
sell novel products into the MSR marketplace that satisfy the unmet needs of the more demanding rec
reational and professional shooter.

    What does a $300 trigger do?

    • Budogunner

      I saw no mention of pull weight, pretravel, overtravel, or any other normally relevant trigger related facts so I have to wonder the same.

      I’m a software engineer, not a mechanical engineer, so any mechanical advantages are non-obvious to me based on the picture.

      • TheNotoriousIUD

        Maybe it makes the bullets go faster.

        • Budogunner

          It might have better lock time, but that wasn’t mentioned either.

          Also, don’t even joke about making the bullets go faster. The next Call of Duty will probably have that mechanic if you install a trigger upgrade. Just like adding suppressors reduces damage in most FPS games. Ugh…

          • 6.5x55Swedish

            Well the games are not that far off. The games that offer a suppressor also tend to change the ammo as well so that the sound is not as loud as with a super sonic round. If the bullet is slower it makes less damage.

          • Budogunner

            That makes sense for 9mm, but no sense for 5.56 NATO, 7.62 NATO, or 7.62×39 in semi-autos. Basically, it ONLY makes sense for 9mm.

          • 6.5x55Swedish

            5.56NATO is known loosing edge as the bullet slows down which is why it is not very good at longer ranges. Reports in fact prove the importance for the bullets speed as it becomes increasingly difficult to tell a wound made by 5.56NATO at longer distances apart from a wound made by a .22LR at less than 50 yards.

          • Bal256

            That literally has nothing to do with why 5.56 guns in COD lose damage when you add a suppressor.

          • kyphe

            I see no report so no proof of anything

          • Vitor Roma

            LOL @ the absurd 5.56 hating.

          • Kelly Jackson

            I’d be interested in reading your “source” for that claim.

            A 40 grain Blazer .22 LR has 109 ft/lb of energy at 50 yards

            A 55 grain .223 doesn’t drop to 107 ft/lb of energy until 750 yards

            As a point of comparison that same .223 bullet has 1093 ft/lb of energy at 50 yards.

      • Don

        It has the same adjustable pull weight as the 24C just like it said in the video. The difference between this trigger and the 24C is that this new iteration is coated. The coating is supposed to make the trigger even smoother than it already is. I have the 24C on all four of my AR’s and they are incredible triggers. Cody hit it dead on, the trigger has one of the lightest trigger pulls along with having the heaviest hammer strikes of any current trigger.

        I see you guys on here all the time, I’m surprised that you didn’t read the review they had on here last year that would have answered all of your questions. Just type in HiperFire 24c in the search box and it will take you to the article.

        • Budogunner

          I don’t think I’ve been a member for a full year. Even if I was it isn’t my first instinct to search the blog for previous, year old reviews for more information about a new product in a new review. All I had to go on was the text in the article and the press release, which seems wanting.

          How do you adjust pull weight? That much is interesting.

          • Westin

            You adjust the pull weight by changing the pair of compression springs evident in the middle of the system. See pic.

            The way the trigger’s camming element works, there is (perhaps oddly until you wrap your mind around it) an inverse relation between the pull weight and the hammer energy.

            With conventional triggers, the force of the two torsion springs is additive, so a high hammer energy has a high pull weight .. and a light pull weight has a weak hammer energy. If you try to cheat this system via a trigger job then the reliability of the system deteriorates faster than any real reductions in the apparent pull force.

            But with the Hiperfire it works the other way around, the lightest trigger pull has the highest hammer energy, and an absolute top tier reset speed as those geometries and distances have also been improved. Pretty nifty. Fascinated to see how other makers will try to anklebite the concepts while also staying out of court.

    • Giolli Joker

      It looks sexy.

  • ksenter

    didnt seem like a review. I’m just accepting it as a press release

  • uisconfruzed

    How’s the safety compared to mil spec, Geissele?

    • UpChuck.Liberals

      I wondered exactly the same thing so….with no round in the chamber. I did some minor abuse of my AR. Soft 1# Hammer to the sides several times, to the mag well…very carefully and in front of the mag well. Struck the stock on a carpeted concrete floor at roughly a 4′ height…wanted to do an impact test of the stock anyway. Nothing. I’ve got the 24E set it to the lightest trigger pull which is the heaviest springs. Lightly lubed with Mobil 1 0-5 Note: I’ve yet to make it to the range with it, still trying to put food on the table and water in the tap here in Kommieforiastan.

  • All the Raindrops

    On the front page of this site, 75% at least of the articles are just ads/press releases like this. Birchwood Casey overpriced crappy steel taegets? New camo color for UTAD? Gimmicky front sight? Some trigger… none of these are reciews, they’re just ads and they’re lazy.

    I have been reading this site fir a relatively Ling time bit it’s morphing ti an adstrwam, mixed with POTD.

    If yall need some ideas for content, let me know.

    • stefan

      I too have noticed over time there are less real reviews and just cut & paste info that comes from ads on products.

      Oh well.

  • TheNotoriousIUD

    So George Bluth has gone from selling The Corn Baller to AR triggers.

  • Stephen

    So now its the TH-24 “C”. Yea I kinda figured that there would be number of triggers, thats why I didn’t jump on the bandwagon.

    When they get to the TH-24 “Z” I will probably get one. Till then I will wait.

    I feel sorry for the all the people who bought the first version, then had to buy the 2nd because it was sooo much better, then the 3rd, etc. etc. At $300 per over time thats a lot of money to blow. The funny thing is that all the people I have met who have these triggers, rave about them but many who I watch run & gun, need not be concerned with getting a high performance trigger but concentrate more on fundamentals. For some they think high priced equipment will overcome some holes in their game, but it really doesn’t.

    Just saying

    • The product suffix do not represent a logical progression. The 24 begat the 24E (Elite). The 24E begat the 24 3G (3 Gun). The 24C (Competition) is essentially a 24 3G with a straight trigger face. The TH24 is a 24C with a nifty nickel finish.

      From what I can determine, the 24 in the designation is short for the trigger weight adjustment range: from 2 to 4 pounds.

  • AK™

    For the price of one HF trigger,I could get 2 CMC flat blade triggers.
    Or 2/3rds of a PSA build..upper,LPK,etc.

  • Colds

    I compete in 3gun and this is the best trigger I’ve ever tried. It has no take-up, breaks incredibly crisp and very short reset. I’m not sure how safe it would be on a duty gun, but they have other triggers for that.

    I previously had a Geissele 3Gs and hated that I couldn’t find the break on it for the 400+yd shots. I’ve shot a lot of the triggers on the market and if you’re shooting those long shots on the clock, it’s worth looking into this trigger.

  • UpChuck.Liberals

    I’m going to let you all in on a little secret. Way back in the old days of 35mm cameras, we had a ‘soft touch’ button for cameras. Basically it was a big round button that screwed onto the top of the shutter release, made it much more controllable. If you put a wider pad on your trigger you’ll notice a huge difference in the feel of the trigger. That said, I bought one of the Hyper-Touch triggers because the stock ones felt like a sand box no matter what I did to them. It is definitely smoother, especially using Mobil 1 as a lube prior to assembly.
