Default AR trigger

Hi !
I'd like to know how much the trigger moves back before a bullet is fired on an AR . Is it approximately the same thing on other assault rifles ?
This is what I mean :

HMMM......I don't know the answer, but I'm curious as to why this is important enough to ask?

From a common sense standpoint, the dimension you seek (the point of "break" when hammer releases from sear?) will vary a bit from trigger group to trigger group, and maker to maker. Aftermarket, improved, or "worked" triggers add to the variables.

And again, why do we care?

#1 an AR-15 is NOT an assault rifle. The "AR stands for Armalite, the designing company.
#2 Trigger pulls are not measured in inches, they are measured in pounds and ounces. A typical AR-15 will have a trigger weight of 4 - 8 pounds.

This kind of question for a first post raises everyones red flags. Sounds like a question from an anti-gun troll or civil attorney.

In either case I am closing this thread down. If you want to introduce yourself and participate in the discussions here, you can gain some credibility and ask such questions in the future.
In life, strive to take the high road....It offers a better field of fire.
