The trigger is a crucial component of any firearm because its quality is directly related to shooting accuracy, safety, and overall handling comfort. However, many stock guns lack good triggers for some reason. It can be fixed, though, with a quality aftermarket one.
If you own an AR-pattern rifle - congrats, you have plenty of options. First, we have kit triggers, which basically are several parts that you need to put together. Installation can take a while, especially if you don’t have much experience. On the other hand, we have the so-called drop-in triggers, which are far easier to install. High-quality drop-in designs are self-contained, and once you put one into the lower receiver, you’re good to go. Today, we have several manufacturers of high-end drop-in triggers, such as TriggerTech, Timney, CMC, and, of course, Elftmann Tactical.
Elftmann got the attention of the AR community when it released the ELF D-TR, AR-15 Dual Trigger. The DTR was a true hype generator because no one had done anything similar. Some shooters were skeptical about it, while others swore by it since it allowed for rapid fire. All in all, thanks to it, the Elftmann brand became known to a broad public.
Then, the company developed a single trigger with needle bearings and packed it in a drop-in housing. Today, it makes drop-ins for AR-15, AR-10, AR-9, AK, and bolt-action rifles.
Elftmann Tactical Drop-In Triggers
One of the most popular ELF AR designs is the Elftmann 3 Gun Trigger. It’s a match-grade drop-in trigger that uses aerospace-grade sealed bearings that contribute to a fast and smooth pull. Thanks to the proprietary hammer spring and skeleton hammer, this ELF match trigger boasts incredibly fast lock time. The break is glass-rod crisp, the take-up and the reset are very short for enhanced accuracy and swifter follow-up shots, and no overtravel is present. If you want a fixed ELF, consider the ELF SE Trigger with a 3.5 lbs pull weight.
Gritr Sports also carries ELF Remington 700 triggers, Elftmann AR-10/.308 triggers, and Elftmann AK triggers for sale.
