Velocity Triggers is a new company founded by Tom Vehr, who has more than three decades of experience designing and producing triggers. Vehr has an impressive resume including fourteen years of experience with Timney Triggers where he ran various aspects of production ranging from design to tooling to testing. In addition to working with Timney, Vehr also worked at Knight Rifles and founded Vehr Manufacturing, which is the parent company to Velocity Triggers.

For the company’s debut product Vehr put his extensive experience to work to create a new drop-in AR trigger assembly that’s designed to deliver exceptional performance at a more affordable price than many similarly performing triggers. The Velocity Trigger is made to fit all AR platforms and comes in both curved and straight styles with pull weights of 3, 4, and 4 1/2 pounds. It has a pre-assembled, black-anodized housing and simply drops into place. The housing itself is made from 6061T6 billet aluminum and the hammer and disconnect are treated with NP3 by Robar. As for performance, the company’s website says the trigger “makes your AR feel like a true bolt-action sniper rifle.”

The Velocity Trigger is 100% made in America. To take a closer look, visit the company’s website at http://velocitytriggers.com/index.php. MSRP is $150.00. If you’re in the market for a new trigger for your AR, take a look at the Velocity Trigger.

    It looks like the entire article was copy/pasted in the title field… That, or there is no title and the breakpoint broke.

  • Marcus D.

    Still. it is a solid trigger, and it is on my wish list. It is all I will ever need.

    Strike industries needs to ditch the S rune coopted by the Nazis.

      Why?

    I’ve been following these guys since they’re in Phoenix (where I live), and LOVE to buy local (Galco, Young Manufacturing, etc…), but I haven’t found it down to $99 anywhere…I wound up buying a Black Rain Ordinance for the aforementioned $99. They’re very similar, but seems the BRO has a shorter reset

    • Budogunner

      Who is selling the BRO for $99? I can’t find it for less than $180.

      • Matthew

        red barn armory had ‘logo removed’ BRO triggers, was an Independence weekend sale, not sure if they’ll get more in stock, but I’d put yourself on the ‘ping me’ list

    I JUST PUT A CMC 3.5# SINGLE STAGE TRIGGER IN AN AR.308 BUILD I’M DOING AND IT IS THE ‘CATS BUTT’ ! ! I HAVEN’T USED A VELOCITY TRIGGER YET BUT IF I FIND A RIFLE WITH ONE THAT I CAN COMPARE TO THE CMC PACKAGE I WILL DO SO. I HAVE USED A COUPLE OF GEISSELE TRIGGERS IN MY AR’S BUT THE CMC IS ABOUT $100 LESS AND PERFORMS EVERY BIT AS WELL…. !

    • Andrew

      AWESOME! I’M SO EXCITED!!!

      • stephen

        LOL – Well done.

    • CMC is a decent trigger on trigger pull fundamentals — no takeup, little-to-no-creep, clean break, short and tactile reset, etc — but is definitely not better than the Velocity here. However, the Velocity is light years better on build quality and features *and* is less expensive. Normal price on the Velocity from a handful of retailers is $134 including shipping, which is typically like $20 less than even really strong sale prices on CMC.

    I bought 2 of these trigger’s and can’t say enough good things about them. Both are in dedicated 22lr AR pistol & carbine platform. The triggers feels crisp, light weight, and nicely finished. Very nice product and may have to purchase a few more.

  • Andrew

    “makes your AR feel like a sniper rifle”

    Sorry, but I refuse to buy products from a company that says such stupid things.

  • Hey thanks for linking my vid here! The Velocity Trigger is top notch and regularly available from various retailers online for $134 shipped. I’ve seen it on sale many times at $119 and one super crazy sale (I think it was Black Friday) at $99. It’s the least expensive drop-in AR trigger on the market but performs as well as the big names and the quality is every single bit as good, too.
