That trigger is pretty interesting but I wouldn't plunk out the cash for it without a lot of folks going first

I am really, really interested in this trigger system have been researching it, believe it has taken the "bumpfire" principle to a level that approximates select fire and am resolved to buy it this spring and install on one of my better AR's.

As for the gun its not cheap but that trigger alone is 500 bucks separate not counting the cost of having someone put it in for you (and with that kind of trigger i'd definitely pay to have a professional do it.

The flash hider is permanently attached so its fully legal at that length.

I think that rifles looks ****-hot

it depends how much you value your money.
Is the rifle worth that much?
hard to say w/o a long track record.

an alternative method could be to buy a nice Daniel Defense M4V5 for 1300/1400 or a SIG516 and the add then trigger ..500 bucks plus quality install say an extra 150 and you are at just 2k.
or an LMT for a little more.

but I always encourage folks to give new companies a try and in so doing help the community via an evaluation.

Having said that, rifles in that premium price range usually say LWRC or Noveske in front of them....all the other brands I mentioned are also well respected premium rifles (except for that hot trigger,)

I should have this trigger some time in the near future. I pre-ordered one at the first of December. No need to pay to have it installed. Not that difficult. Since it's a drop in unit, it should install about the same as a Timney. This will be going in one of these builds......

Not sure which one just yet......

So hot!!

I also cant wait for you to get your trigger to inform my path forward.
At this point I am basically wondering should i get 1 or 2?

If I get 2 then both my CQB rifle would get one and i would also set up my DMR as a poor mans LMG w/ Bipod etc
(They both have CHF barrels)
