[SHOT 2016] RISE Armament RA-140 Trigger

    RISE Armament RA-140 Trigger

    RISE Armament of Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, started out as a manufacturer of firearms parts for many of the gun makers in the industry. Over time, they began to see opportunities and they turned their manufacturing expertise and strict quality assurance to making their own parts. They now manufacture a range of components that includes barrels, compensators and flash hiders, bolt carrier groups, and trigger groups.

    Their new RA-140 Super Sporting Trigger is a drop-in replacement for mil-spec trigger groups in most .308 and .223 AR-style guns. It’s designed to be a cost-effective upgrade to deliver high performance at a reasonable price.

    The single stage RA-140 has a clean break and a short reset. It’s comfortable and has a 3.5 pound pull weight. The unit is housed in a hardcoat anodized aluminum housing and can be installed quickly and easily with no fine-tuning required.

    The RISE Armament manufacturing facility is certified AS9100, a strict rating developed for aerospace manufacturers and much more stringent than typical firearms manufacturing standards. If for any reason a customer is not 100% completely satisfied, the RISE Armament warranty allows for returns in original condition even after being fired.

    The RA-140 trigger has an MSRP of $129. Compare this to the $259 MSRP on their RA-535 Advanced Performance Trigger.
