TriggerTech Introduces “Zero Creep” AR Trigger

Newcomer to the firearms industry (though with established success with Crossbows), TriggerTech has announced the release of “The Zero Creep” AR trigger. The new trigger promises to have “1911 Single-Action” performance in a non-linear trigger pull.

The basis of the performance is a “patented free floating roller that sits between the sear and the trigger.” The roller removes sliding friction (the primary cause of “grit” and heavy trigger pulls for rough finishes). Despite the added component, TriggerTech claims the trigger is rugged condition ready “all the while maintaining its premium performance and safety”


The trigger itself is a drop-in pack ready for standard .154″ AR lower receivers. Its semi-auto, single-mode only (unlike some other new systems reviewed here) and features an aluminum housing with all stainless steel components. The trigger will be available in curved and flat faces.


Interestingly, the company is based in Canada, not known for its AR-15 friendliness. The company has pegged retail at a surprisingly low $199 (US dollars in case anyone is confused) with reduced pricing available to distributors, dealers, and OEMs. They are available for pre-order now direct from TriggerTech with first shipments scheduled for January.

Specs from TriggerTech:

  • Zero Creep Single Stage 1911 like action
  • Frictionless Release Technology (FRT)™
  • Straight drop-in to .154″ pin (not applicable for .169″ Colt)
  • Choice of Curved Trigger Lever or Straight Flat Face Trigger Lever
  • Adjustability from  2 to 5 lb with unique design providing feedback indications
  • Enhanced Reset Control™ capabilities with a patent pending design
  • Optimal hammer spring and geometry for the highest possible performance
  • All Stainless Steel 440C internal components with 6061 aluminum anodized housing

    Interesting concept would like to try one.

    • OBlamo Binlyen

      I’ve got a Hypertouch 24e and it’s nice, this one is a very interesting concept, in theory it’s going to be very smooth. I’ve got a spare lower that it will fit in quite nicely.

    “rugged condition ready”
    I love the use of vague undefined terms in the firearms industry.

      It’s Tactical!

      • OBlamo Binlyen

        but but but it’s not BLACK. EVERYONE KNOWS that it has to be BLACK or at least CAmMo to be ‘Tactical’.

    I would have to try one side by side with a Geissele to be convinced of the utility, especially at $200 MSRP. I have yet to find anything substantially better than the S3G in the same price range.

    Canadian? Listen to that guy in the video. Are we sure they aren’t…Austrian?
    That dude sounds like Arnold Schwarzenegger.

    • thedonn007

      Have you ever been to Canada? There are a lot of immigrants living in Canada.

        I was attempting to tell an Arnold joke, but on reflection, I don’t think I did a good job. Sorry.

    Will stick with my Geissele SSAE triggers….

    Not sure why, but the Tavor Timney Trigger malfunction article just came to mind
