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.
