POF USA Drop In Trigger 4.5LB Single Stage
Ratings & Reviews
Nice trigger, poor pin design
by RealAmerican -
Overall a nice trigger. It has a small amount of creep, it then hits a wall prior to breaking.
<br>Be aware that this drop in trigger requires pin retaining bars external to the lower. Screws are provided which thread into the pins themselves. I personally do not like this in preference to pins held in place by friction or other internal means.
Works in AR9 build.

I use this trigger in my AR9 build with a cmmg bcg. It works great and didn’t require any modifications to fit in a cmmg lower. I am well over 1500rds and it hasn’t had any light strikes or malfunctions. I plan on buying this trigger again for my next build.
Fantastic trigger, especially considering the price.

I almost didn't buy this due to a couple negative reviews. I'm really glad that I decided to give it a try. It has a very crisp break. Virtually no play, it's super tight. I did run into one problem that I read about in other reviews. It did not want to fit the receiver originally. The easy fix was to remove the two rubber pieces at the bottom of the housing. They literally came right out with a flat head screwdriver. I would more than reccomend this trigger that is looking to improve their AR. I plan on putting one in all of my other rifles now that I have gotten a taste of what an upgraded trigger feels like.
Buy this for your AR-15, you'll be really impressed and happy.
I had to remove the rubber cushions on the bottom for a proper fit (no big deal). I have several of these in my rifles and have no hesitations about them. Fantastic product, great price. You won't be sorry or disappointed.
Fair trigger, with creep
by Robert -
A lot of creep for a drop-in trigger. Very perceptible creep before an acceptable break. The CMC trigger I bought from PA are far better.
<br>Glad the POF trigger was on sale or I would have returned it. No fit issues at least.
A lot of creep for a single stage drop in trigger
by Robert -
No mechanical issues, fits perfect in a Spikes lower. Two stars for that alone.
<br>The trigger action though is not very good. Very perceptible creep before the break. Not tested the pull weight, but it is heavy for a 4.5 lb trigger.
<br>My CMC triggers are far better. Glad I only paid $100 for this thing or it would be on the way back.
by Robert -
Meh, not nearly as good as the CMC triggers. Has a lot of very obvious creep, though the let off is crisp once you creep up on it (pun intended).
Great trigger had zero issues
by Maurisio -
Great trigger! Had no problems fitting into my franklin armory forged lower. Fits like a glove and the trigger pull is crisp and light. The ease of installation was extremely easy as well. I would buy it again for any of my other builds.
Great great trigger! To the ones saying they had fit issues did you check this?
This is an awesome awesome trigger. And for the price PA offers for it then it's a complete steal! The only complaint I see in reviews are guys saying they had to file down the trigger to fit and the pin holes wouldn't line up etc. I had the same issue, however, I was installing it on an F1 when I purchased the skeletonized version of this trigger. Same issue, I tried and tried for about an hour trying to squeeze it in. Tried using tools, slave pins, etc. nothing. Then after close investigation I notice these small rubber inserts on the bottom of the housing on both ends. And behold they push right out!! Once I removed these small rubber inserts the trigger fit like a glove. Not sure if they were there to prevent scratching on the housing when in the receiver but they aren't attached permanently at all and slide right out of the groove with the push of a finger. B the trigger fit and function perfectly after pushing them out. Don't knock this trigger til you try it.

I have tried other triggers at higher prices in the past and have never been disappointed. I saw this one on sale and decided to give it a try. And I'm glad I did! It was a true "drop in" for my Spike's Tactical lower. I was a little concerned by the lower price, but I find this item to be on par with the much more expensive models. Clean, crisp and consistent pull. Very nice.
<br>I would recommend this trigger to anyone. No matter if this is your first AR build or your tenth. It will not disappoint!
Nice trigger, but not truly "drop-in."
by Craig -
This is a nice trigger- very crisp, short reset, very little creep. However, it required some minor modifications to get it to fit into my Aero Precision Gen 2 lower receiver. The chamfer at the forward edge of the trigger housing had to be rounded a little in order to get the pinholes to line up. Other than that, I'm very happy with the trigger.
Nice trigger, but some rework required.
by Craig -
The action of this trigger is great- nice crisp release, short reset, very little creep. However, like some other reviewers have noted, mine required a little fitting to get it into my Aero Precision Gen. 2 lower receiver. I spent about 30 minutes trying to get the pins to go in, but they just wouldn't go. I looked at the trigger housing and could see where the anodizing was coming off of the edge of the chamfer at the lower front corner of the housing. A little rounding of that edge with a fine file and it went together without any further problems. It didn't take much, but it shouldn't have taken any. So, since I probably lost my warranty, it lost a couple of stars.

I had been looking at this trigger knowing nothing about POF. PA had one of their amazing sales and at $100 I figured I'd take the risk. Boy was I thankful I did! I had no fitting issues on either of my lowers. Went right in, and is smooth and crisp. This made me look into the company, and they really know what they're doing. I have since bought several of their products, and thanks to another PA sale, my second POF trigger will be here on Wednesday. I decided to try the advanced finger placement model this time, and will post a review once I test it out.
Crisp trigger with drop in fitment issues
I am giving this trigger 3 stars. The appearance and machining of the trigger is excellent. I was disappointed when I went to "drop in" this trigger in my lower I was putting together. The front of the trigger housing is not rounded enough to fit into a mil-spec lower. I had to use the dremel in order to make it fit. It didn't take much but it needs to be reworked by P.O.F. After I got it installed I was pleased with the performance. The reset is exceptional. Worth the $$, but be ready to do a little trimming to make it fit.
Took a look at the trigger when I received it looks awesome I have no doubt it'll work in my build perfectly received it 2 days after ordering it customer service was awesome!
Not so good
Fit was way to tight in my receiver and would not function properly. Primary didn't want to take it back because I had installed it. I filed the trigger housing down to get it to fit still was to tight and functioned 50% of the time. I contacted POF and they wanted nothing to do with it. So look for a video on YouTube where I blow this crap trigger up with some Tannerite. Not real happy with primary arms and I will never deal with POF again!
Theres not a lot of info on this trigger to be found around the net but on the advice of two guys I work with who have this on their duty weapons I decided to give it a shot. It's an amazing change going from an 8lb creepy mushy mil spec to this crisp light single stage. I've shot plenty of 2 stage and have a Geissele ssa e on my target rifle but for quick follow ups and nice immediate break this POF 4.5 is absolutely awesome. The install is a breeze the KNS antimigration pins set is fantastic. The best part about this trigger is that is it 100% reliable on ignition and reset regardless of ammo used.
Ok. After instaling this trigger i realize how shitty my stock trigger was. My stock trigger i guess you can say felt sticky to me. It had a really rough take up and it would stop at 3 points before it went bang. Kinda wierd. Pull -stop pull -stop pull a tenny bit more -bang. Pure crap. This trigger.. hehe.. this trigger here is the bees knees! No take up. Zero. Zilch. Nada. No creep. Tight trigger. Blow on it and it'll go bang. Pull -bang. Every time. This was my last upgrade. Should've been the first. Wow. Amazed.
well worth the money
this is my first aftermarket trigger...bought it on sale..im glad i did..its well worth the money and would buy again..very smooth and crisp..
by Jason W.
easy to install take off the grip safety and the old mil spec trigger. no pre-travel light crisp and less than a millimeter for reset.
awesome priceAwesome products! considering that for >$200 we have many options I picked that one on sale for $139. Well no creep easy to install (you still need to remove the pistol grip and safety lever). I can't wait to try it on the range. Don't go for the most expensive competition unless you are a pro.
You have to try one of these P.O..F triggers.
I have a Timney 3lb in my Windham AR and it is nice and good. Real pain to install with those small set screws. Then I came across the POF 4.5 lb on sale at Christmas at super price and ordered it. I am so glad it was on sale otherwise I may not have purchased it. So much easier to install and it came with the anti rotate pin kit included in the package. That is a $30 savings. I tried the trigger in my Core 15 and was absolutely blown away on how good it felt. It put the Timney to shame. It is much crisper no take up no over travel and great reset. The clean crisp break just far out ways a lower 3lb pull of the Timney. It really feels like 3lb or better due to the crisp break. I love letting people pull the trigger on this POF and they are flat out surprised. This trigger gives such better accuracy. Go for it...you will not be dissatisfied and you will save some $$$ over the competition with the anti rotate pins included. I bought a second one for my son-in-law and he is a CMC user. Well he is a POF patron now.
great trigger for the money. No Creep!!Easy install that came with KNS anti walkpins. Awesome feel when you squeeze the trigger!!!!
all i can say. This thing was super easy to install, comes with all the parts, and firing is like glass breaking on the 4.5LB mark. Yes, exactly 4.5LB mark.
Simply a fantastic trigger!
Replaced my old Spike's nickel boron coated battle trigger with this unit. Install couldn't be any simpler. The trigger has zero creep and a super crisp break. It made my SPR into a fantastic shooter. If you prefer a single stage trigger, this one will be hard to beat.
