I’m a fan of HiperFire triggers so seeing one supposedly even better than the 24C I run in my competition rifle is highly intriguing. However, its an anticlimactic release, which is basically announcing the name change of the TarHeel 3-gun Special Edition trigger to the ECLipse.
Still, for a trigger to “eclipse” the performance of the 24C is no small feat, but seems to be from an engineering perspective, a simple answer… adding a nickel-based coating to decrease resistance and friction.
The ECLipse is available direct from HiperFire and through their distribution network. MSRP is listed at $275. For those looking for additional details on the trigger and a refreshingly honest history on its development can hit the video below.
Full Press Release Below:
October 7, 2015: HIPERFIRE Announces the Immediate Availability of the
HIPERTOUCH® ECLipse (ECL) AR Fire-Control Group (FCG). This FCG’s performance eclipses that of every other HIPERFIRE trigger product including the
24Competition. It was developed as part of a 3-gun match series promotion. That promotion just ended with the HIPERFIRE Rifle Challenge and the trigger can now sport a
new, more evocative name. HIPERFIRE didn’t think it could improve on the
24Competition product offering, but it did. Your trigger finger will feel the difference from
the 24C as a definite step up. It sports a Black adjustable HIPERSHOE and a Nickel
based enhanced plating exclusive to the ECL making the pull even smoother and more
responsive at an MSRP of $275. Please note that this and HIPERFIRE’s other trigger
offerings aren’t just for 3-gun, but to anyone who demands the best. For more information, visit hiperfire.com. HIPERFIRE has wholesale and OEM purchase programs.
