AR-15 rifles have become a staple in 3 gun competition, precision match shooting, and many other competitive environments due to the large amount of aftermarket parts and accessories available to customize your rifle. Whether you have your gun set up as an sbr, dmr, or dedicated race gun, it is vital that you have a high-quality trigger not only for accuracy and speed, but for safety as well. The Rock River Arms National Match trigger is designed to tick each of those boxes no matter how your AR is set up. It features a two-stage trigger pull with a .5lb first stage and a 4-4.5lb crisp break. The overall trigger pull is light and smooth which is much better alternative than a gritty Mil-Spec stock trigger. Not only is this trigger great for match shooting, it is a great trigger to put in your varmint or hunting rifle so you can be confident in your shot with this accuracy enhancing upgrade.
Rock River Arms has built their name on the idea of providing lawful United States citizens and law enforcement high quality AR-15’s and 1911’s. They have a large selection of parts, accessories, complete lower and upper receivers, and competition match ready components. RRA is owned and operated by the Larson brothers who have worked for high-end companies such as Springfield Armory and Les Baer Customs and brought their knowledge with them to Rock River.
Ratings & Reviews
Works Great for 7.62x39 AR Builds
by Erik -
I use it in my 7.62x39 AR build (tool craft bcg with enhanced pin). It has succeeded in being 100% reliable while feeling great. RRA sells a heavier hammer spring for $2. Without the heavier spring I only had issues with 25% of the old, mil surplus ammo. Otherwise it worked great for all other steel and brass cased ammo. With the heavier spring it fired off everything 100% no matter what. Several other triggers I have could not do this. I wouldn't hesitate to put this in any other build. Are there better feeling triggers, yes. For the price, this is excellent.
A great trigger
by Grant U
This is a really great trigger, particularly if you shoot the National Match Course or as a legal service rifle at 600-1000yds in NRA or CMP events. Unlike the Geissele, this trigger splits the weight almost evenly between the 2 stages instead of taking up most of the weight on the first stage. Far less chance of a sudden, surprise boo-boo during rapid-fire and the reset of the trigger. The trigger closely follows the old Krieger-Millazo pattern (WI Trigger Co.) regarding weight distribution between stages.
<br>Have installed dozens of these and there has never been an issue with varying or loss of weight over time, excessive creep (some are unbelievably crisp) and excessive over-travel. Reset distance is very short.
Installed in my AR 308 1000yd rifle

bought this along with a JP spring kit. 1st stage under 1lb, 2nd stage 3lb. perfect break. reminds me of the modded trigger in my Gold Cup NM pin gun. Never would I though I could get this nice of a trigger in an AR at this price point. I'm getting more of them so y'all don't buy it, If people figure out how good they are they'll be sold out and the price will go up. Big thanks to PA...
Classic. The Most Bang For Your Buck!
Have used one for years. Is it as good as the $200 triggers? Not likely. However, it is light years better than the "NiB" plated stock triggers priced a couple of dollars less. Got $200 or $300 to spend? Take your choice. Want a great trigger for a bargain price? You found it.
Nice trigger, fast shipping!
by Patrick -
First off, I ordered this on Friday night around 9 pm. I got an email showing it was shipped on Saturday at 8:30 am! Product was on my doorstep Tuesday evening. Kudos to Primary Arms for awesome service!
<br>As for the trigger, I'm very happy with this purchase. Installation was a breeze, took less than ten minutes to remove mil-spec trigger and install rr trigger. Smooth take-up with a light, crisp break. I can't wait to see the results on the range! Thank you Primary Arms!
Best trigger for the Price, great shipping too!
by Luke -
Great Trigger group I had isues with other triggers in the past .
<br>I dropped this trigger in went to the range and shot 200+ rounds flawlessly.
by Mark -
Ordered based on a friends recommendation. Excellent, period. Took it apart and polished it on a buffing wheel prior to installation. Great trigger.
Best "budget" trigger ever for an AR15.
by Kevin J -
First- Primary Arms is an awesome company. Fast shiping. 2nd- this trigger is awesome. I put it in my 308 to replace the crappy factory trigger. At first it had a little drag. Ran a fine file a couple times over the contact surfaces of the hammer and disconnect and HOLY COW. One of the best rifle triggers I've ever used. Easily a 2.5 pound trigger with no drag and a smooth reset. Will buy more for sure. Best after market trigger for under $100 ever.
Excelent trigger for the price
by Rick -
Primary Arms is so fast it arrived before I ordered it. Well sort of. This is a fine trigger, on some lowers you may need to open up the pin hole a few thousands. I have installed it in a Palmetto State, Tennessee Arms, and Aero. All fit and work fine.
Great trigger and won't break the bank, I have three of these, very smooth and consistent.
<br>Easy to install.
<br>For those that that think the pull is too heavy they make a Varmint model that is lighter pull.
by Dusty -
Drastic improvement over stock trigger. You cant go wrong with this for under $100.
Excellant Trigger! It isnt a SSA but it is very close.
by chris -
This is essentially a Geissele SSA clone. I have both triggers (this one and a SSA) and comparing them side by side they are almost identical. They function similar as well, however the SSA has a softer carrot like break where this one is candy cane like. For the money this trigger is very good. At less than half the cost of the SSA it performs very well. It has a heavier second stage and longer reset than the SSA however they are still similar in performance. I like this trigger so much it is my go to for budget builds. Installing this trigger will have a significant impact on your rifles ability to group at 100 yards and beyond in comparison to a mil spec or enhanced mil spec trigger. I have had zero issues with light primer strikes as well. If you are looking for a 2 stage trigger that performs similar to a SSA at less that half the price this is the trigger you want.

Forgot to add that I installed mine into an Anderson lower with no problems and it was my first build. Not my first AR, but first build. Went right into place and no problem with the pins.
by Ron F -
Nice trigger, nice feel. Bought this as an upgrade to an inexpensive lower kit. Doing another build so I ordered a Rock River lower kit for that one.
Great trigger; Great shipping!
by Jim - East Texas -
Replaced factory trigger in Ruger AR-556 - huge improvement! No creep, nice, crisp letoff. I don't have a trigger gauge, but pull is at least half of factory weight. Must brag on Primary Arms - I placed an online order at 2:00 pm on a Friday; received an email that order has shipped at 4:00 pm; shipment was in my mailbox at noon on Saturday - less than 24 hrs! Using USPS and standard shipping! I am only about 100 miles from Primary Arms' store, but still, that is amazing response!
Don't be afraid to pull the trigger on this deal!
I own several of these triggers and have installed dozens over the years in rifles belonging to others. Very good trigger, very "crispy" and a couple hundred dollars less than the "G" triggers. Easy to install and will last for many years! Only down side would be the weight of pull is a little higher than advertised averaging about 5 1/2 lb. on the most recent ones I have purchased. All said, the most affordable and best two stage AR trigger on the market!
Top performance at an affordable price
by Larry -
This trigger is affordable and easily comparable to expensive name brand triggers. Highly recommend swapping out standard combat single stage triggers with this one, you will not be disappointed with its crisp breakage. I swapped out springs with JP 3.5 lbs and have put this setup in all of my AR’s.
So much better than Mil-Spec
by D.G. -
I swapped out my Mil-Spec trigger for the RR NM trigger and wow. I didn't realize what I had been missing. Trigger pull is half of what my mil-spec was and no creep. Now I'm going to have to buy two more. Bottom line <br> its a great value.
Save your $ and buy a LaRue...........
Had one and was extremely disappointed.. it's nowhere close to the La'Rue triggers.
Slow is Smooth and Smooth is Fast
by Max -
Love this trigger! Smooth take-up and a very crisp, audible reset (such a beautiful sound). Great trigger and great quality. For the price, you won't be disappointed!
Great Trigger with JP SPRINGS
I have three of these two stage triggers that I use on my AR-15 and AR-10 platforms. I have the first say that the trigger is very smooth and has a nice to stage set up on it. That being the positive the only thing I do not like is the trigger pull is a little heavy for my taste. So, I use this trigger with JP Springs and give my trigger pull down to 2 lbs for 1st stage and 2.5 lbs for 2nd stage. So for about $100 I have the same quality as some of the $250 triggers out there.
Buy this now, don't hesitate.
I have a Rock River NM Service Rifle that came with this trigger and I love it. I bought another for a build and love that one too. You cannot go wrong for this price.
<br>Lastly, I bought a high end trigger, will remain nameless, for my NM service rifle but ended up keeping it in my test rifle because I didn't like it as much as my RR trigger. I medaled in two matches with this trigger. I'm by no means the best but do have more then average exposure to the match world an I love this trigger!
for the price and quality nothing compares
by Kevin -
awesome trigger for a fair price & high quality.always get disappointed when these companies continue to put in these trash "mil-spec" triggers in there AR's when will they learn to give back and show a tad appreciation to the customer
Great trigger great price
I bought this trigger for my first AR build. After a painless install (assisted by a knowledgeable friend) and a pull test (4.5 lbs) I was ready to test it at the range. It has a great 2 stage pull and a crisp short reset. Definitely worth the money! I'm a happy customer.
Great Trigger at a Great Price!!!
Easy install in a P-TAC lower. The first stage is nothing more than spring loaded take up.... another 3-4 lbs and a clean quick break. I have never fired the Giesele or Timoney trggers but as a competitive pistol shooter who pulls 8-10K triggers a year this trigger is just what I like 3-4 lbs.
