Are HIPERTOUCH® 24 series triggers compatible with ambidextrous safeties or other ambi controls?

Safety/Selectors: HIPERFIRE® knows of six safety selectors that will not work with HIPERTOUCH® 24 series triggers:

  1. Seekins Precision Ambi Safety (60 and 90 deg throws)
  3. Elftmann Slide Safety Selector
  4. Talon Ambidextrous 45/90 Safety Selector
  5. BAD-CASS or BAD-ASS Short Throw Safety Selector
  6. KE Arms Ambi Safety Selector (45/90 deg throws)

HIPERTOUCH® 24 Series Triggers

The frame component of the HIPERTOUCH® 24 FCG that provides the toggle spring system support is designed to ride on the barrel of semi-auto or “MIL-spec” safety/selectors (not full-auto). This permits normal functional rotation of the safety/selector. An aside: when the FCGs are first installed, some users will notice a little grit during rotation, which is a function of the surface finish on the safety/selector barrel. With a few cycles it will smooth out as the frame and safety/selector self polish.

The ambi safeties listed above do not have a large contiguous cylindrical barrel surface like the stock version; two or more channels or a small diameter barrel have been cut into them that accepts the rear of the trigger when pulled into over travel. The toggle spring frame drops into these channels, which not only relieves necessary compression of the toggle springs but may also prevent free rotation of the safety/selector or even cause rotation of the selector during repeat fire as in the number two case above.

HIPERTOUCH® EDT Series Trigger

The Seekins works in 60 deg throw mode in SAFE and FIRE w/o issue. However, in 90 deg throw mode, the trigger will rotate enough to release the hammer. This is because the trigger tail is shorter than MIL/stock triggers and can move up into the exposed Seekins SS slot just enough to release the hammer when pulled.

Other Ambi Controls: The ambi bolt catch on S&W M&P10s interferes with free rotation of HIPERTOUCH® 24 series triggers. Users have simply removed the ambi control and restored proper function of the 24 series FCG. Some safety selectors, such as the JP Adjustable/Reversible Safety Selector, have adjustable set screws and locking screws that eliminate sear/trigger travel.  HIPERFIRE® recommends you review the selector manufacturer’s installation instructions to ensure proper selector function.

Does HIPERFIRE offer LEO or MIL discounts?

HIPERFIRE supports our law enforcement and military personnel and appreciates their service, past and current.

From time to time, HIPERFIRE donates product to firearm raffles and the proceeds that support “wounded warrior” programs.

Unfortunately, at this time, we can’t offer discounts. We’re not set up to verify requester’s credentials. Fraud protection is a necessary fact of life in today’s electronic age.

We hope to offer courtesy discounts in the future. In the meantime, please visit The company is vet owned and offers LEO/MIL discounts.

Can you tell me how the triggers are similar and/or different? I’m having a hard time seeing it.

Listed below are the specifications found on each product’s page. The base model is the 24, then the 24Elite, 24 3Gun, and finally the 24Competition. So, listed first are the features of the 24 followed by the additional enhancements up the line. After perusing the specs, also check out the feature chart that shows summarizes the answer to your questions in a graphical format (see Related Articles below-right), or click HIPERTOUCH® AR Trigger Family: Feature Comparison Chart.

Finally, it’s very hard to describe the unique feel of the triggers. Putting your finger on one or more tells you all you need to know.

How do HIPERTOUCH® AR triggers compare to one another?

HIPERTOUCH® triggers install in modern sporting rifles (MSR) such as the ubiquitous AR15 and its many multi-caliber variants. HIPERFIRE®’s single-stage, semi-auto, Enhanced Duty Triggers (EDTs) and the 24 series of triggers all operate on the same principles like user-adjustable weights and high hammer fall energy, but with some important differences. The charts below summarizes these key features:

  • All the products have 3 or 2 basic user-adjustable trigger weights shown in the top line by the 3 different colored toggle spring set ups in the case of the 24s and 2 different colored hammer hammer spring set ups in the case of the EDTs. The 24C and ECLispe have 5 shoe positions, so they have 3×5=15 different adjustment pull weights. The colored dots on the weight scale correspond to the springs installed by color.
  • All the triggers have the highest hammer fall energy of any AR trigger anywhere when using the gray toggle springs (24s) or the red hammer spring (EDTs) and near stock hammer fall power when the others are installed The hammer fall energy is compared to a stock or MIL-spec trigger set up shown in green by and further scaled by mini-bar charts.
  • The next three lines highlight specific design shape features.
  • The next line, Pre-Travel of Initial Pull, shows how much “creep” is in each HIPERTOUCH® trigger (creep is defined as the distance, or feel, of one metal component sliding on another). This is then compared to a stock or MIL-spec trigger and among one another other using a horizontal, green, baseline, mini-bar chart representing the stock or MIL-spec trigger.
  • Importantly, the Pre-Travel from Hammer Reset, shows the amount of creep compared to the creep of the initial pull, i.e. the creep to expect after taking a shot, letting off the trigger and taking a follow-up shot at the point of hammer reset.
  • The last line shows the type of cartridge the triggers can handle. The last column shows that an optional spring combination (green toggle springs and red hammer spring) that can also handle 762×39 Russian rounds, which have notoriously hard primers w/ 100% ignition, i.e. no light strikes. Of course, the triggers can also handle 300BLK, 22LR, 9mm, etc.

Again, it’s only a summary. Getting your finger on one or more of the triggers will tell the rest of the story. Contact us if you want more detailed information.

What is the difference between the 24, 24E, and 24C?

The 24, 24E and 24C have some fundamental similarities. They all tout the same trigger design concept and all use the same pair of toggle springs that adjusts trigger pull weight and adds to the swing weight of the hammer for a more reliable, consistent ignition. However, despite having a similar trigger design, each model offers a different trigger pull feel to ensure every user gets a more customized personal fit.

The 24 model offers more trigger creep for safety purposes or other user preferences, making this model an ideal option for users who want a deliberate, higher creep trigger pull. Having said that, there are some highly ranked 3*Gunners who run the 24. Just goes to show, it’s what you want in a trigger and not going just by the name.

The 24E is an upgrade to the 24 model that reduces creep by 50%. Users of the 24E experience a lightweight/responsive trigger reaction with just a hint of creep or pre-travel that minimizes time between deciding to take the shot and trigger break. The 24C offers an even faster trigger response than the 24E, delivering the least amount of creep, most say virtually no creep, of all three options, making it an ideal option for an expert shooter. Of course, this applies to the newer 243G as well.

What trigger do you recommend for _______ [fill in the blank]?

With so many different types of shooters with different personal preferences, types of rifles and ammunition, it’s hard to be specific with a recommendation that will suit everyone. However, detailed perusal of the site will suggest those product options that best help the individual shooter determine the right trigger and performance feel for his or her needs.
