HIPERTOUCH® FCGs have uniquely
solved two problems with stock AR triggers and AR trigger upgrades in general:
1) High Trigger Weight, and 2) Low Hammer Fall Energy.
Trigger Weight: The real culprit behind high trigger pull weight is high
sear impingement force that produces high friction. To get around that, the
stock “AR” trigger and hammer mechanical advantage was changed and the sear
Hammer Fall Energy: Even with trigger weight, high energy MIL-spec hammer fall
is maintained. The best of two worlds.
HIPERTOUCH® FCGs retain Eugene
Stoner’s design of simple elegance while remaining very robust, without the
gritty feel. Shooting for high accuracy is no longer an almost impossible
chore. It’s no longer necessary to improve the stock performance by manually
polishing the high-friction trigger and hammer sear surfaces, where the end
result was only marginally better anyway.
The EDTs were designed for the
broader high performance shooting market typified by three segments that taken
together, demand a unique suite of features at more pedestrian pricing. Those
segments are: Law Enforcement, NRA type long range competition shooting, and
the multi purpose sport, hunting, and home defense rifle. All these segments
have one trigger specification in common: a minimum pull weight of 4½ lbs. The
EDTs meets that specification and more.
First, the triggers are
user-adjustable to 4½ plus and 5½ plus lbs by simply interchanging two hammer
springs. “Plus” means that even after a period of break-in and/or heavy use,
the trigger weight will always stay above the two thresholds.
Second, the sear design paradigm
used in the 24s has been included making for a very smooth and flat pull with
only a hint of creep, a clean break with little over travel, and a fast
positive reset. If you have put your finger on a 24E, 24C, or 243G, and can
imagine the higher EDT2 pull weights, you’re very close to appreciating what
the EDT2 will feel like.
Third, the EDTs sports MIL-spec
hammer fall even though the pull weights are less than MIL-spec’s 7-9 lbs. The
two hammer springs that give the 4½ and 5½ lb pull weights are even heavier
than the stock MIL-spec hammer spring. This is possible because the EDTs’
hammer and trigger mechanical advantage pioneered by HIPERFIRE in its design of
the 24 product family has been included. So, the EDTs’ hammer still strikes
well within MIL-spec’s hammer energy range with lowered trigger weight.
Fourth, the EDTs’ lock time is
faster than MIL-spec, like that of the 24 family, due to the use of the heavier
springs and by locating the center of hammer mass closer to the pivot axis,
which causes it to spin up to speed faster.
But, there’s more … an entirely new
feature found in the EDTs and no where else. Remember, ED stands for Enhanced
Duty. When thinking about the needs of Law Enforcement, the Military, the home
defender, and the ultimate reliability demands placed on the AR rifle, do you
think of very adverse and dirty conditions? Now, imagine when and how you
really want that rifle to work? The EDTs’ trigger was designed for that
First, fine particulate debris and
carbon fouling can accumulate in the bottom of the disconnector slot of stock
triggers causing the disconnector to jam. If that should happen, semi auto
function may be compromised. In contrast, that the EDT trigger slot has holes
running the length of its bottom so that the disconnector actually becomes a
self-cleaning device, pushing out any debris by that same disconnector toggle
Second, notice that the rear
underside of the trigger has been raised and the end ramped up and away, increasing
the gap clearance between it and the floor of the lower’s fire control cavity.
What does that do? Well, if a blown primer cup or bits of gravel should be
blown into the lower through the ejection port when shooting prone, they could
end up under the trigger preventing it from letting off completely thus
preventing hammer reset. Many, especially 3 gunners, have had this very thing
happen to them. This new EDT trigger feature can minimize this occurrence.
The best feature? The EDT2 is only
$94 at MSRP.
