ALG Defense has finally released their new AKT-E trigger for AK47 and AK74 variant rifles and pistols. Their first trigger the AKT was debuted last year at the budget friendly price of just $49. The AKT trigger had a claimed pull weight of just 3.5lbs with a much smoother and shorter trigger pull compared to factory AK triggers. It is machined from triple alloy steel with a corrosion resistant Manganese Phosphate finish.
Both the AKT and AKT-E triggers feature a “Lightning Bow” shape that’s suppose to provide a much more comfortable feel and increased control compared to factory shaped triggers. According to ALG Defense their new AKT-E Enhanced version has a much more smoother pull and an even crisper reset and an improved trigger coating compared to their AKT trigger. Their triggers also are three parts towards 922(r) compliance. ALG is currently filling pre-orders on their AKT-E triggers but they should be available soon on their site over at algdefense.com and retailers.
I haven’t had the chance to shoot the ALG Defense AKT trigger but I do have one of their AR triggers and for the price they’re great. ALG’s AK triggers are among the cheapest on the market, CMC’s AK trigger retails for $225 and Elftmann Tactical’s AK-47 trigger retails at $295.
