I had the pleasure of reviewing RISE Armament’s single stage 535 Advanced Performance Trigger, and it is the trigger that I currently run on my 3-Gun Rifle. RISE is introducing their new offering, the Black Fallout RA-140 Super Sporting Trigger (SST).
A sector of the market has been underserved. Until now, there wasn’t a quality trigger group available around the $100 price point,” says Chris Barger, president of RISE Armament. “The RA-140 performs as well as trigger groups that are double the cost. Now, no one has an excuse to use a mil-spec trigger.
The RA-140 SST is manufactured and assembled in RISE’s facility in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma. It is precision CNC machined from high-grade, heat-treated tool steel and aluminum. The entire trigger group is contained in an aluminum housing that is black 8625 hard coat anodized. It is a single-stage drop-in trigger group with a short reset and it rated to have a 3.5-pound pull weight. The trigger shoe is rounded, unlike the RA-535. For what it is worth, they manufacture to AS9100 aerospace requirements.
I am personally impressed with the quality of the products and I am definitely going to give this one a try on my next build. They state that it is “very easy to install with no fine-tuning needed” and I can attest that the RA-535 Advanced Performance Trigger was. They do recommend using KNS pins for the install, and they sent a kit with mine, though I ended up tensioning it with the internal set screws. It will be interesting to see if they come out with a rifle build using the RA-140 like they did with the RA-535.
The trigger will eventually retail for $119, but is currently available for an introductory price of $99. You can find out more information about this trigger at: http://www.risearmament.com/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=81
