    Just thought I say a few words about the new ALG trigger I got last week.

    WOW.

    It is pricey for a Mil-Spec type trigger but it is the smoooothest trigger of it's type I have ever tried. Imagine a Mil-Spec trigger with a short pull that feels like it is on bearings.

    It is just that, a Mil-Spec trigger. But they have taken that trigger and polished the contact points to a darn near mirror finish and finished in something they call " HardLubing"

    No long term test, but I have shoot a hundred or so .223 and the youngsters have tore it up with a .22LR upper. It hasn't broken yet, and I wouldn't expect it to being a Mil_Spec trigger.

    The other day I was thinking that it would be awesome if Bill Springfield sold a trigger worked electroless nickel package like the Spike's Battletrigger at a good price for builds you don't want to put an expensive trigger in. This could be the ticket. I strongly prefer single stage triggers. I even have a very nice Geissele that after shooting it for awhile I've determined it will soon be replaced with a JP.

    I installed my "act" trigger a few days ago. My pull averages out at 5lbs-15ozs. Not sure if this is the the proper terminalgy but mine has absolutly no take up at all. Just a clean break. I think it's the perfect trigger for those that don't like too light of a pull or two stage.

    Mine is right at 5 1/2 pounds and very, very little take up.

    I don't know. Having absolutely no take up doesn't sound like a good thing to me.

    I'll take it. I actually prefer a GI trigger with a bit of my stone work and the JP enterprises springs. I have my Noveske set up this way, with no creep and a crisp break at 3.82 lbs.

    I have been thinking of trying ALG's products...

    Oh, it does have it. It is just not a lot. And what their is...it is smooth.

    I'll try and get some measurements sometime of the ALG and a stock trigger. I bet the take up is near the same, but with the ALG being so smooth you don't notice the take-up as much as with a gritty stock trigger.

    It is a safe trigger to use. It is not a target trigger by no means.

    I was more referring to glock031 who said his had absolutely no take up.

    Measurements would be great as I'm interested in this trigger.

    Jack I spent 10 minutes trying to measure the trigger travel between the ALG and 2 Mil-Spec Colts and one Spikes I have. I can't seem to get an accurate reading consistently. I may take the guns down and take the hammer springs out and grip off and try that.

    But under close "eyeballing" both types of trigger side by side I think I will have to eat some crow and say the ALG has the same take up (or slightly less) than the stock triggers.

    The ALG gives the feeling of very little take up because of the smoothness of it.

    Glad to see a less expensive trigger alternative.

    This is the guy who runs Geissele's wife's company that works over mil-spec triggers, right? Might have to try one, been waiting to hear what people think of them.

    Jack, what i was trying to convey was there is no play in my Act trigger. The only rearward movement is the break. Like its set right at the break. Not sure if others are like this or not but i like it. I probably will buy four more and replace all my ar triggers with these. The act triggers are $65.

    Some will think it is expensive, some cheap.
    I am glad about any new product. Even the crappy ones, just shows there are people doing something.

    That is my understanding yes. It is the wife's company.

    I have NO idea if that is true, but if I was in business it is what I would do.

    When I was in we had to buy stuff from a black woman's company for 6 bucks a pop that I could run down to K-Mart and buy for $4.:rofl:

    Thanks. Very interesting. I'm reluctant to spend the money on something like an SSA. If my rifle was more of a precision rig with a stainless barrel and high power scope I could see it, but I have a standard BCM upper and barrel with a red dot. The ALG might be the perfect fit.

    I don't have a problem with the stock trigger on mine, but after hearing how smooth the SSA is (a few people I know have them) and then reading this post, it might be something to look into (plus I live near the location)....

    Those of you have have used the SSA & the ACT... what are the differences?
