The Adaptable AR Primary Trigger was built to satisfy the demand of having one trigger capable of enhancing the accuracy and precision of an AR in every role.
Featuring Frictionless Release Technology™, this drop-in AR trigger has a short, two-stage action, designed to feel like a 1911 trigger, that provides a true zero-creep break, extremely short overtravel, a sub 0.030” tactical reset and offers outstanding reliability, even in the harshest environments.
Utilizing CLKR Technology™, the pull weight is quickly and confidently adjusted from 2.5 - 5.0 lbs in 2oz increments from a set screw with the trigger installed. Due to there being truly zero creep, most shooters report the pull weights feeling ~0.5lbs lighter than a friction based trigger of the same measured pull weight.
This trigger bears the adaptable name because changing its pull weight does not affect hammer force so you get dependable primer strikes at every weight. Frictionless Release Technology™, along with hardened 440C stainless steel internal components ensure corrosion resistance and an extended service life. As Frictionless Release Technology™ does not rely on coating, polishing or lubricating the key engagement surfaces, trigger pulls will be more consistent from shot to shot and after thousands of shots than you ever thought possible.

Trigger Control Details
Frictionless Release Technology™
TriggerTech developed FRT™ to get away from the limitations faced by sliding friction triggers (all other triggers are sliding friction triggers). FRT™ is comprised of a patented, free-floating roller that is captured between the sear and the trigger. This advancement makes it possible for us to engineer the ideal release characteristics into every one of our triggers.
TriggerTech set out to develop a trigger with leading overtravel and reset control and developed a new component to achieve this. TKR Technology™ utilizes something we've named the "ticker" - an intermediary component that can pivot freely from trigger lever to enable the sear to release without requiring further displacement from the trigger lever. This minimizes overtravel and sets you up for the perfect reset - one that is short (< 0.030") but remains tactile and forceful enough so you are not wondering if your next shot is good to go.
TriggerTech wanted to make adjustable triggers that allowed the operator to quickly and confidently adjust pull weight. This drove the development of CLKR Technology™ - a detent and set screw combination that enables the operator to adjust the trigger's pull weight with tactile clicks that let the operator know just how much they have adjusted. To further adjusting confidence, we made the adjustment feature fail-safe. It’s designed to withstand over tightening and if the set screw is removed the trigger will operate at the low end of its pull range.
FLTWR Spring Technology™
High performance AR triggers often have a reputation for failing to consistently deliver sufficient hammer strikes. To ensure TriggerTech was not type-cast we developed FLTWR Spring Technology™. FLTWR Spring Technology™ is simply a flat wire hammer spring that enables us to get more coils and provide more force into the hammer. This innovation results in more dependable primer ignition, less variability in bullet velocity and a longer service life for your trigger.
TriggerTech housings are made of anodized 7075 aluminum. They are designed to minimize the ability for contaminants to get inside the trigger.
The Dvorak TriggerScan™ System is a computer controlled, motorized instrument, specifically designed to test trigger mechanisms of firearms. The system provides precise and repeatable graphical evidence of trigger quality. The patented technology sets a new standard in trigger quality evaluation. The Dvorak TriggerScantm provides empirical evidence that Frictionless Release Technology™ enables TriggerTech to achieve a true zero-creep release.
This is a Dvorak TriggerScan™ of one of the most highly regarded friction-based, aftermarket AR15 triggers. This trigger features a short take up to a lengthy first stage and, once at the wall, has over 0.010” of creep before the breakpoint. The reset requires a user to go back to the beginning of the first stage with a reset length of over 0.110”.
This is a Dvorak TriggerScan™ of TriggerTech’s Adaptable AR Primary Trigger set at 2.25 lbs. This trigger features a very short first stage and, once at the wall, has zero creep before the breakpoint. Zero creep is demonstrated by there being no ﬂat section of the line after the wall. The reset is such that you are not required go all the way back the start of the ﬁrst stage and results in a reset length of less than 0.030”.
This Dvorak Trigger scan shows TriggerTech’s Adaptable AR Primary Trigger set at 2.25 lbs against 4 leading friction-based, aftermarket AR15 triggers. These scans highlight what you would feel when you shoot a TriggerTech. There is no comparison.
