Those of you who have picked up one of Geissele’s Super Duty rifles will probably know all about how well regarded the SSA-E X trigger is. For those that don’t know, this particular trigger is an improved version of the popular SSA-E trigger. The SSA-E X adds a semi-curved Lightning Bow trigger and also has a lot of the same great features that the rest of the SSA-E lineup has. Before, those that wanted one of these highly sought-after triggers could only get them by purchasing one of Geissele’s Super Duty rifles but now Geissele is offering the SSA-E X as a standalone product for those that want to get one.

The SSA-E X with Lightning Bow® trigger is no longer exclusive to the Super Duty line of firearms! The SSA-E X features a Nanocoated wide body trigger and Nanocoated Hammer, with a special Chrome Nitride disconnect that combines advancements in coating design to bring about the next evolution of the venerable SSA-E. These coatings dramatically enhance wear and corrosion resistance and keep the trigger running smooth and breaking clean even after heavy use with minimal lubrication. The SSA-E X with Lightning Bow® trigger is a non-adjustable trigger, with pull weights that result in a trigger with a smooth, light first stage take-up and a crisp, candy cane-like second stage break. The SSA-E X is ideal for use in precision Squad Designated Marksman type rifles where weapon accuracy and reliability are critical and a non-adjustable drop in trigger is desired.
I’ve spent a lot of time in online forums and imageboards and heard a lot of great things about the trigger for those that want a high-performance trigger for precise long-range shooting. However, I don’t know if the community is quite ready for that price tag yet. I’d like to hear your thoughts on the Geissele SSA-E X trigger. Is the trigger so good that it is worth the $325 price tag? Let us know down in the comments!
