The HIPERTOUCH® 24C is the
competition version of high precision fire-control drop-ins for installation in
AR-15® and AR-10® type rifles. The HIPERTOUCH® name is short for HIgh PERformance
TOUCH, 24 for user adjustable trigger weights and C for
competition marksmen like 3-Gunners. It installs and functions just like the
HIPERTOUCH® 24 but with half the pre-travel and a faster reset.
HIPERTOUCH® FCGs may not work in lowers with pivot holes that are outside the
MIL-Spec dimensions shown in RED.
HIPERTOUCH® FCGs have uniquely
solved two problems with stock AR triggers and AR trigger upgrades
respectively: 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 toggle
spring feature added to reduce the impingement force on the trigger sear.
Designers of two-stage products changed the functional location of the primary
sear; HIPERFIRE®’s design has not, retaining the stock design’s single-stage
simplicity. This is important for when stock triggers are pulled, the hammer
cam-action signals hammer fall is imminent. When 2-stage triggers are pulled,
the final higher weight stage also signals hammer fall. This can lead to the
flinching problem we all know about. Some like to say the better 2-stage
triggers have glass rod or candy-cane like breaks to sell the idea that they
don’t signal hammer fall. In any case, the HIPERTOUCH® 24C does not signal
hammer fall because the trigger weight is constant over the entire stroke.
Hammer Fall Energy: HIPERTOUCH® features the unique toggle spring
functionality that reduces trigger weight, but while doing so, it also
increases hammer fall energy by over 35% over the MIL-spec stock design and
every trigger upgrade in the market. This permits the shooter to ignite hard
MIL and foreign primers as well as hard to ignite 22 rimfire ammunition.
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.
Ambitious sportsmen and marksmen
have been turning to trigger upgrades with varying degrees of satisfaction. The
better replacements have been one and two-stage triggers with fixed final
weights ranging from between 2½ and 4½ pounds with what some have called a
glass rod or candy cane trigger break. Some of these devices require factory or
user calibration, maintenance, and/or replacement for wear or doubling. Some of
these devices also employ reduced power springs, which have compromised
reliable ignition for a “dream” trigger weight.
The HIPERFIRE® “AR” accessory
response to those shooter’s looking for a single-stage and very much improved,
match quality, “AR” trigger upgrade that delivers high performance is the
HIPERTOUCH® 24C. It nests in unmodified standard AR-15® and AR-10® type lower
receivers in the same way as stock “AR” triggers and hammers without having to
remove the safety selector. It is comprised of three subassemblies: the
trigger, hammer, and toggle, spring groups. All the parts are made from carbon
steel alloys that have been hardened for wear and strength. It features
exceptionally low trigger weights with smooth pre-travel, a very clean hammer
release with no report to break, match action response, and faster hammer
lock-up. Only now with HIPERTOUCH® trigger and hammer actions does “AR” trigger
“squeeze” have real meaning.
Additionally, the HIPERTOUCH® 24C
also sports the HIPERSHOE® adjustable finger pad, which can be positioned at
five (5) different vertical detent locations along the 24C’s straight trigger.
By changing location, the shooter can further adjust pre-travel and weight
within a broader range than without it as desired for even more trigger
responsiveness. Also, the adjustable pad lengthens slightly the extension of
the finger to the pad with respect to the pistol grip, which alters the feel
and dexterity of the finger on the trigger for added comfort and/or control.
The trigger can be installed and operated with and without the shoe.
