Spending Money on a Trigger

Any recommendations for a trigger?

Looking to finally upgrade the factory trigger unit that came with my M1A Scout Squad.

I like flat-bow triggers, but that's not a requirement.

Not sure whether I need a completely new trigger assembly but I'm not opposed. Help me spend my money!




Rifle currently has a Z6 2.5-15x44 BRH on it. Thinking about getting a Ballistic Turret installed (4.6 mils of adjustment in the turret + 4.5 mils in the reticle or just getting a Z8i 1.7-13.3x42 installed. Decisions, decisions...

Art is a stand up guy and his triggers and hammers are not gimmicks.

Can't help with a trigger recommendation, but noticing all the empty bottles in the photo...

Shooting Sight EBR hammer and trigger for sure!
Trigger shoe!?


Love the wider trigger on my old SAI SuperMatch but Shooting Sights are the way to go!

Temporarily out of stock, but a new batch is off the mill, and ready to go to heat treat, then polish/coat, so I'm probably a month out.

Send an email to [email protected], and we will inform you as soon as they are done.

Yeah, ShootingSight, EBR, maybe with or maybe without the speed hammer, depending if you value the lock time in exchange for a stiffer safety release/reset, or are willing to contour the safety to compensate.

Thanks from JEFFJP_N_JJ

You may also want to consider a proper NM trigger adjustment. It retains the original parts modified to eliminate second stage creep and maintains a 4.5 to 5 pound weight of pull required for safety and satisfies both NRA and CMP competition rules.

I'm not really worried about rules, the main thing for me is having a crisp break without mush and having the pull angle be correct so that it's comfortable firing a pistol-gripped rifle.

Go with the ShootingSight products. You won't be sorry. For an M14 type rifle with a pistol grip, you can't beat Art/s EBR trigger.
Go all the way with his lightened hammer and smile on your way to the winners circle.

I do not know who did the trigger on my old 2006 SAI Super Match or what it is really... I got it and shot it!
Observations:
It has shot thousands of rounds and is the trigger I am most familiar with so my comments here ARE biased!


Love my Super Match trigger! as it is wider and just 'feels' better to me... Clean and crisp with no slack or drag at all!


Love my Shooting Sight speed hammers and EBR triggers installed in MY trigger housings! Just wish the trigger was wider and felt like my SAI?
Trigger shoe?


I consider them equal guys and WILL use the Shooting Sight stuff in any rifle I work on!

Just to clarify, the ShootingSight triggers and hammers DO meet CMP and NRA rules for service rifle. They are NOT legal for the Garand 'as issued' matches, but neither are NM trigger jobs. So basically, any match where a trigger job is legal, so are the ShootingSight triggers.

Thanks from nf1e

I have a triggerjob done by a competend gunsmith. 150€ was a perfect investment combined with a trigger shoe from the waterman.
