Patriot Ordnance Drop-In Trigger 5.0lb Pull


First looks.  Nice drop in unit that makes installation easy.  Just take off your grip, the selector spring, detent and the safety selector.  Then using a punch, knock out the pins for the existing trigger and hammer.  Remove them.  And you are ready to install the unit.  To do that, you just drop it in and install the KNS anti-walk pins.  Then install the allen screws to secure the pins.  We found that reinstallation of the safety selector was a little too snug.  So we removed the pins and then put the selector in before putting the pins back in.  Then everything fit like a charm.  Put back the selector detent and spring, then the grip and you are good to go.  The whole process took about 20 minutes.

Trigger pull is very crisp and the reset is very good.  We found that we could tighten up our groups using this trigger assembly.  It is a very definite improvement over the standard milspec trigger.  Now for the technical stuff.

This single stage, non adjustable, drop in trigger boasts a solid 4.5 pound pull weight and is pre-assembled in hardcoat anodized aluminum housing (complete with rubber urethane feet) for immediate competition, hunting and tactical applications right out of the box. Carved from American a2 steel, the trigger, disconnect and hammer are all nitrate heat treated to 70 Rockwell case hardness for ultimate strength and corrosion resistance.
