Well...that's disappointing. They sent the meat rub but no jerky? I'd send it all back and keep the trigger in retaliation... :twisted:

Got the LaRue trigger installed today,and man what a difference. :great:
This thing breaks clean with virtually no over-travel.
The specs say it's 2 1/2 pounds on the first stage and 2 pounds on the break, and I'd say that's pretty close.
After the gritty, heavy old trigger, this thing seems amazing. :mrgreen:
The Little Woman asked why I need a new trigger when the old one is just fine.
I told her that when you are trying to hit a small hunk of steel at 200-300 yards, you don't want to be arm wrestling with your trigger. :whistle:
I'm hoping to get time to shoot it this weekend, and I'll let you know how it works.

Randy I don't know if its because I shoot rifles left handed but I have never been good at bump firing from the hip. Besides, with my bump fire stock I can fire from the shoulder and have controlled aimed bursts. Almost like shooting a full auto in the military.

Post subject:  Re: LaRue MBT Trigger

hehehe...I've never actually done it myself, just read on how it's done. It doesn't look easy at any rate.

I've never had the opportunity to shoot anything full auto. Some neighbors around the corner from me (about a mile from me as the crow flies) go into their backyard and shoot something full auto at times from what I can hear. :dunno: My range is safe only for aimed shooting. I shoot directly at my neighbors house on my pistols range but it has to go through 500feet of trees, another 1000yards or so downhill, and through their sparse trees to hit anything. It could happen I guess but I always try to hit my berm anyway. My rifle range is in the opposite direction, also down slope. Straight aft of the berm is nothing for miles but the interstate is two miles as the crow flies. I doubt much of what I own will fly that far with a normal shooting trajectory. If I lobbed one up at 45° I could get one that far I spose. :dunno: It's happened if you believe news stories. :hmmm:

Randy back when I was in the Army we had the real full auto M16 rifles none of that 3 round burst crap. I shot them any chance they gave me.

Here is a vid of me with a semi auto AR with a bump fire stock shooting a 20 round burst. Notice how well the barrel stayed on target, and that was only the second mag I had shot using a bump fire stock. They are considered a range toy but I can see a serious use for them if the balloon ever goes up

I remember the full auto M16. I was on a machine gun team and the M60 was a blast to shoot and the 50 damn near gave me a woody.

As part of the civil engineering branch of the AF I seldom had any opportunity to fire the M16. I qualified on it each year without any previous practice. :neutral:
The one time we had war games where I could go out and shoot blanks on full auto I was laid up with a broken ankle from my motorcycle wreck. Bummer! It wasn't long after that I was discharged.

My first issued M16 had the full auto and we got to run a few mags through it in Basic for familiarization, then when I went regular ARMY I was a TOW gunner so no M16 for me, was issued a .45 was it. Next time I enlisted in the Guards I got the 3-round burst one. Also at one time or another got time behind the M60 and the .50 cal, always fun to burn through someone else's ammo. Never tried to bumpfire. I can go through ammo fast enough as it is.

Yup, no matter how one looks at it, shooting is not an inexpensive hobby.

Is that the trigger you have Husker??

I'll put a picture of a mil-spec below - just to compare them:

Image

So the LaRue is a different kind of trigger. Looks like it has an one more spring than the std. AR trigger??
A different design but it looks like a fellow has to align everything with the holes in the receiver
before the pins fit through - similar to the mil-spec trigger.

I can see how buffing the std. trigger could make it a lot smoother.

I messed with the sear on a Ruger rifle many years ago by grinding on it...
It worked so good it required no trigger pull at all!!
I would work the bolt and it fired when the bolt closed... :shock:
I did get it to work right - and with a very light trigger pull too.
Anyway - I don't think I'll be doing that again... :neutral:

When I bought a better trigger for my AR I didn't really look around very much.
I was actually just fine with my std. Ar trigger...

Then my SIL had me put a Timney in his AR - I wish I'd never touched it.
After putting his in and dry firing it a couple times - that was it!!
I could not believe how much better that Timney trigger was...

Image

I found a 3.5 pound pull Timney trigger for $175 and bought it.
Timney is a brand I used to read about when I was a kid - I kinda just wanted one too.

The 1st time I used it - and even a couple times with the 1st shot when I go to the range even now...
I'll chamber a round - get settled in on the rest - put my booger-hook on the trigger and - - -
BANG!! way before I'm ready for it!!

And when I look at them now - I do like how the Timney is a "self-contained" trigger - a "drop-in" you could call it.
It's easy to push the pins through - And there are 2 set-screws that hold everything in place.
One on each side of the trigger and they push on the bottom of the lower receiver and that holds the pins in place.
There are 2 more set screw to tighten on top of the 1st set screws to lock them in place.

And I have truly been "Trigger-Happy" ever since!! :great:

I want to get a Timney for my 788 Remington rifle too - but we'll see....

There are SO many triggers out there for an AR - it pretty amazing!!
Lot's of AR's out there = lot's of money to be made...

So Husker - Was your trigger very difficult to put in?
Easier or harder than a std. mil-spec trigger??

I am pretty excited to read/see a range report on your new LaRue trigger. :yes2:

Maybe I can try that baby out along with the 45 S&W Shield next time I there... (-:

Oh - and one other thing - No meat rub or bumper-stickers came with the Timney...
Just instructions - a Timney sticker - and a bible verse

Jason
That is indeed the trigger I have.
The disconnector is captured in the LaRue, so one less thing to line up, but aside from that, it's about the same as putting in a mil-spec.
The extra spring is a 6# spring in case the other one is too light for your needs, but it's just a spare.
I have another AR, my Windham that has a trigger I thought was pretty good....until I got the LaRue, and I think I may try to dress up my mil-spec and put it in, just to see what happens.
I've been looking at the Elftman flat triggers, they are a drop in, and all the moving parts are on roller bearings.
