    Oh look…another overpriced drop in trigger. Haven’t seen that before. Must be a game changa.

    • Flounder

      except this is an AK trigger… So kinda reeaaaallllyyyy nice.

  • anon

    AK’s really want to be AR’s lately.

    • Texas-Roll-over

      Really, or is that people just like modifying their guns. The market changes and in turn releases product that people want.
      So if I add a nice trigger to my M1A, FAL, or VZ58 I’m immediately wanting an AR….NO, if I did, I would just go grab one of the 2 AR’s I have? It’s about making a gun better or just more fun.
      You obviously didn’t think that comment through very well…

    • Dracon1201

      What? Is it because the AK is changing and being afforded the proper aftermarket support as the AR? Is someone jealous and stomping their foot because the AK refuses to stay in the fifties? Cause the AR is the pinnacle of military tech and nothing can do the same? Lol.

        “Cause the AR is the pinnacle of military tech and nothing can do the same?”

        You would be surprised there are AR fanboys who think exactly like that especially those who comment on this very blog.

        I can understand why the consumer wants to dress them up. Because why not? What baffles me is the degree to which the after market wants to supply an equivalent of every AR doodad even if it makes little sense for the platform. Dropping $300 trigger packs on the market in the absence of boringly common accurate barrels is one of those things that makes little sense to me. $40-80 trigger parts that are more consistent than factory? Yeah makes sense.

        I don’t blame the users of AKs though, it’s a reaction to a saturated AR accessory market, and the AK platform is the next highest volume competitor in the retail arena.

        • Dracon1201

          Well consider that AKs, unlike ARs, are not as simple to put together. Why would they offer a good aftermarket barrel when most people can’t actually assemble the darned thing? Triggers are about the only thing that you can do a lot with, and a self contained trigger pack is a godsend. It makes life easier outside of improving function. It’s the most meaningful upgrade you can make.

          Let’s talk instead about the crappy ammo selection available. That’s a problem. Not the barrels.

  • TheNotoriousIUD

    $300………..for a trigger…….

    • Anonymoose

      The Tac-Con is still $50 more. I think I’ll stick with the Tapco, though.

      • TheNotoriousIUD

        Ill stick with the one that came on my gun.
        Anything that needs to be deader than that will just have to wait.

        • Anonymoose

          A large amount of American-assembled AKs use Tapco triggers to comply with 922r, but some makers are installing the ALG AK trigger now. I agree completely with you on this one. I am in no way a trigger snob.

          • TheNotoriousIUD

            Maybe I don’t know enough about the intricacies of triggers but if Ive got three hundred laying around then it’s going towards a suppressor.

  • Andrew

    $300? Nope. I’ll keep waiting on my pre-ordered forever ago ALG AKT-E…

  • dshield55

    I remember an old joke 10+ years ago about the first black guy paying more for his rims than his car going down in fame and history. Somebody is about to go down in history for being the first person to pay more for their AK trigger than they paid for their AK.

  • iksnilol

    I don’t mind paying for a good trigger, but 300 USD is a bit high. Try to stay at around 100-150 USD for a good drop in trigger.

  • Craig Kleemann

    I’m having a really hard time figuring out the ways in which this trigger is superior to the ALG?

  • Otm Shooter

    What I like is that its a flat faced trigger. Efltmann makes a great AR trigger. I expect the same with this one.

  • Matt Bennett

    $300. What a joke. They jumped on the bandwagon of overpriced, massive profit margin gun accessory manufacturers.

  • CavScout

    If you modularity, modern features, crisper/cleaner/lighter triggers, ease of mounting optics, lots of great options for aftermarket stuff, etc; you’ll be 100x better off buying a quality AR. I have more AK platform guns than AR’s, and I’m sick of what it costs for the JOURNEY of trying to make an AK more like an AR. Not worth the time/month/frustration. If that caliber/configuration can be bought as a quality AR, almost always better off going that route from the start.
