A Quick Guide to the Best Triggers
At OTM Tactical, we pride ourselves on stocking the absolute highest quality rifle parts and accessories, and among those we include triggers from four of the world's best manufacturers: Jewell, Timney, Bix’n Andy, and TriggerTech. But what makes these triggers the top of the line, and why are we so proud to carry them? Read on to find out.
TriggerTech: The Wonders of Frictionless Release Technology
What is the most important part of a rifle? The question is entirely subjective, and different people will give you different answers. Some believe that the chassis and stock system are essential to making the whole thing work. Others may point to the muzzle brake, and others still will contend that a suboptimal barrel can wreck a shooter’s performance.
It could be argued, however, that the trigger is the most valuable part. Everything else could be shined up to perfection, but without the mechanism to release the bullet, every other part is worthless. Many factors go into making a trigger effective, and whole companies are dedicated to refining their design for the best possible performance.
We have written about one such company, TriggerTech, and their advanced shooting technology in the past. Now, we will provide more information on this exceptional manufacturer and their unique approach to perhaps the rifle’s most important part.
Timney Triggers: Their Products and Best Practices
We have discussed Timney Triggers in a previous blog post — in fact, we have discussed them twice. However, we mostly focused on describing the manufacturer itself and gave details on their signature drop-in trigger designs.
Now, we wish to go over a few different types of Timney Triggers and their features that you can get at OTM Tactical. That way, anyone interested in Timney Trigger products will know how to make the best choices. Here is some information on how you can actually incorporate these triggers to your firearms, as well as some of the different rifle characteristics you'll experience after installing on of these.
Timney Triggers, Reloaded
The signature element of Timney Triggers products is the single-stage drop-in trigger. This state-of-the-art design, found in items like the Calvin Elite and the HIT Trigger, is extremely simple to install into a rifle. It simply slides in and uses the trigger and hammer pins of the rifle to stay in place. Problems like slack and pin rotation are all but gone thanks to excellent engineering. This type of trigger is compatible with a variety of rifles and handguns, making them even more convenient for the average competitive shooter.

With that said, we would like to take the opportunity to share something about ourselves. There is plenty of information about OTM Tactical that some may find quite interesting. Here are some facts about who exactly we are and what exactly we do.

And while there’s no substitute for skill and practice, there’s a good reason so many competitive shooters seek to upgrade their rifle piece by piece. A new barrel, a new stock, and other parts can all make a difference in your rifle’s performance — and, naturally, so can a new trigger.

Timney AR-15 Trigger
As a Marine grunt, you don't always get the best gear, but rather hand-me-downs that have been beat to death by the Army already. So needless to say, my experience with M-16/AR-15 triggers has been somewhat frustrating. There's nothing that can ruin your experience with a rifle more than a long, sloppy trigger, but that all changed for me this past weekend. After work on Friday, with the help of Mark Rosset, I finally upgraded my standard mil-spec trigger with Timney's skeletonized, 3 pound single stage trigger. With it being a true, one-piece drop in trigger, the installation was smoother than I imagined, and the trigger was even smoother. For me, the days of slowly squeezing a mil-spec trigger with no real idea when firing will take place are long gone. I test ran it over the weekend in a local 2 gun match, engaging targets as close as 10 feet and out to a hair over 200 yards. I couldn't be happier, and neither could the guys that had a chance to run my gun. The break was very crisp and short, and I shot better consistently than I had in the past. I have already, and will continue to recommend the trigger to anyone looking to upgrade to a better one.
