Crisp single stage at a good price

by -

Strongly disagree with the other reviewer on this trigger. Maybe he was sent the wrong item or something, because I can't believe we both got the same thing.

The trigger is definitely a true single stage trigger. There is absolutely NO creep whatsoever, just a nice crisp break once you apply the right amount of pressure. We didn't have a trigger pull weight scale, so I can't speak to the accuracy of the pull weight, but it was certainly comfortable. Definitely a quick reset as well - I was able to confidently and accurately double tap 25 yard targets.

All around a solid trigger, especially for the price. Ordered another one to replace the stock trigger on another AR-15.

*note: trigger was installed on an 8.5" barrel .300 blk pistol

good deal

Trigger has a nice finish, fits in lower loose but tightens up nice with the two set screws on the sides. Trigger feels nice and has a nice break. The anti rotation pin kit was plastic but has stainless pins, not really an issue but worth the mention may be a problem for some. For 100 bucks is a nice upgrade from a stock trigger. Happy with the appearance and function would purchase again. (4 star only for the plastic outer brackets)

Very disappointed in the producted, I have nothing against primary arms they’re great. This item when trying to install from my local gunsmith the tigger had little bit of play and a weak spring; as well the selector switch couldn’t function properly anymore. I believe I just had a item that was defective but I would not reccomnend this item and will stick with CMC Geissele and ALG.

The good: The trigger looks great and after putting in the set screws to just snug to remove the play, it fits great. The break is very clean and crisp. On the bench, this trigger feels awesome.

The bad: The reset is so short that you can get an unplanned double tap even from a rifle with mild recoil (6.5 Grendel). I got 2-for-1 twice in my first 10 rounds. I'm glad I wasn't using my 450 Bushmaster. Also, out of 25 rounds, three times it failed to fire due to light primer strikes on typical Winchester WSR primers. All of them fired fine with an extra strike.

The double fire could possibly be attributed to how tight the rifle is held and how the trigger is pulled, but there isn't much the user can do about light primer strikes.

Great trigger for the price!

I installed this trigger in my pistol and absolutely love it!
Easy to install and functions better then the stock one!
Very crisp pull and reset!

Surprised it was awesome. Phenomenal value.


Pleasantly surprised! Is definitely as advertised, easy to install and clean break. Very little/if any creep. Buying a second for my 300BLK. Only issue is it was did not come with install instructions. Would have been nice. You get a lot for $100. The anti roll pins and screws are a Gamechanger. Make sure you reinstall the safety/selector before tightening down the vertical screws to add tension and brace up the trigger. Make sure the vertical screws are not so tight you can’t easily adjust the safety selector. Love this trigger in my AR-15. It’s not a $300 Geissle but I’m not shooting Competition with these rifles just plinking steel. You won’t regret getting this trigger.

Thumbs up


As always fast shipping by PA. Very pleased with the jmt trigger. Dropped it in and fit was great. Very smooth pull with crisp break. I could feel ever so slightly a touch of creep but was very smooth and consistent. I am very impressed with this trigger for the price. Also very well made. Unless you need a bench rest trigger this is a good choice for use in the field

Maybe Mine is Bad

Great looking trigger, clean break with little to no creep. However, my trigger won't reset. I spend more time messing with it trying to get it to work than I do enjoying my time at the range.

Beware of full Auto

by -

This is a beautiful trigger and has a nice clean crisp action. However I can't recommend this product. I had it in my 300blk AR an she fired fine with not issues, every round went off without a hitch. I ended moving this trigger to another AR lower with a Magpul UBR lower and this trigger simply did not work right. I tried with a grendel, 7.62x39 and 223 upper and in all cases she either required a reset after firing each round or she went "full auto" randomly. Grendel rounds are not cheap and when I would pull the trigger, it would randomly full auto 2-4 shots. Sounds cool but when you have a scope and you're trying to be accurate, full auto is highly inconvenient on top of burning ammo. I put it back on a blackout and it did fine not problem. Overall since it is not fully compatible in many AR configurations I give it 3 stars. Just not something I would want on a gun that I depend on for reliability.

Light strike issues


Had to return due to constant light strike issues. Spend a little more for a better setup.
