HIPERTECH IS NOT AN ACADEMIC EXERCISE HIPERFIRE recently introduced the PDI drop-in trigger family for the AR10 and AR15 rifle platforms.  It epitomizes the design goal that we have been writing about in HIPERTECH to this point.  We had the challenge to overcome what the majority of drop-ins sold suffer from: LPS or light primer […]

PER, Hammer Strike P-ower to Trigger Pull E-nergy R-atio

posted on December 23, 2019

We Got It, A Trigger Metric That Works (pun intended) We, like everyone else, have struggled with things like pull weight and creep.  When we buy triggers, we think we bought the one we wanted, only to find out that what was advertised as low weight, or “no creep,” wasn’t real.  Either we were lied […]

We are creatures of mind, sense, and feelings

Do You Ever Get That Feeling? I get this feeling all the time: something’s not right.  It’s got to be better.  What am I missing?  Maybe it’s a personality flaw.  I’m never satisfied, or if I‘m presented with something, anything, I’m always skeptical until I’m presented first with facts, nothing but the facts.  But facts […]

Recently, we posted HIPERTECH #3, where we provided a lot of pull weight data scans for over 35 AR15/10 triggers that also highlighted the trigger creep.  We defined creep in that article but withheld our judgment as to whether creep is good or bad. “Creep,” any creep is a […]

Everything About Trigger Weight

posted on October 26, 2019

How Much Does Your Trigger Weigh? Or, what’s the weight of your trigger?  Is it the actual weight, or are we really talking about the force we must exert on the trigger to get it to release the hammer?  If so, that would be its pull weight or pull force, just to add some clarity […]

What’s In A Trigger?

posted on September 19, 2019

Everyone Wants a Good Aftermarket Trigger If you believe the advertising, everyone sells the best aftermarket trigger.  Most of these ARE good, compared to the AR15 shooters’ bane, that MIL-spec one.  But what’s good or not so good, breaks down when making comparisons within the aftermarket group.  Well, here’s an introduction to some info that […]
