I just wanted to send you guys a quick note. I very recently got into shooting 3 gun matches. When I say recently a fathers day shoot in Holmen, WI was the very first time I’ve ever seen a match. I built a sweet ar 15 with all the best components I could find-sparing no expense.
I went with a cassette type trigger which I spent $285 on not counting shipping. I immediately had issues and called the company. Three days later no returned call and I was getting a little upset with them. I contacted one of their sponsored shooters through the web and he got them to call me the next day. They gave me some story about how the pin holes must be off or something, and if I sent them the trigger they would install a ar 10 hammer in it and somehow that would fix the problem. When I challenged them on how the pin holes could be an issue when its a cassette trigger- meaning one single unit. If the pins go in they must be aligned correctly- right? The guy got frustrated with me and went on about average joes building guns and knowing nothing about them. Needless to say I wrote them off, and haven’t sent the trigger back to them yet either.
I was on the road for work and that next night when I got home I ran down to my local shop and picked up another competitors trigger- and dropped another $256 on my second trigger. This purchase put me at a total cost into this gun at over $3k. Again I had issues with it and couldn’t get it adjusted correctly. Having the Nordic/Vortex shoot the next day I was now getting a little nervous. My first major match was also going to be the second time in my life I seen a 3 gun stage. I ended up getting that trigger to work fairly reliably- at least much more than the first, and hit everything with loktite and went to bed. I didn’t get much sleep wondering if it would work or not.
That next am I hit the road and headed to the Nordic/Vortex Trigun championship where I seen your table. I have never tried a Hiperfire trigger before but I think I tried everyone you guys had set up. It was really bothering me wondering if id get through the day without an issue. Finally at 7:30 am- 30 minutes before my first stage was to begin I asked your guy if he could guarantee it would work in my gun. Of course there are no guarantees but he was confident enough to convince me, so I ran to the truck and grabbed my rifle. He stripped it down, took out my trigger and installed one of your 243G triggers.
With about 5 minutes to spare I grabbed my rifle, jumped in the truck and headed to the range. The first couple stages didn’t go the best, but before the match was over I pulled it together a bit and ended up finishing 64th out of 124 in tac ops. I was pretty happy for my second match ever.
I loved the trigger but when I got home I installed the 2 lb springs- and now I really love it!
Last Saturday I once again trekked down to forest lake for a small 3 gun league match and did much better finishing up 6th out of 30 in tac ops. My rifle is now my strongest of the 3 guns and I attribute much of that to your trigger.
I regret I never got their names, but the 2 guys working the table at the Nordic/Vortex match represent your company very well, and I would be proud as hell to have employees who were such strong assets as them.
Again I just wanted to say thanks, and thanks for supporting these matches.
