If you own an AR with a with crappy Mil-Spec trigger, the easiest accuracy-enhancing upgrade you can make is to install a Velocity trigger. Seven models are offered. All are single-stage, non-adjustable, drop-in designs priced at $150. They are available with curved trigger blades in 3-, 4- and 4.5-pound pull weights, and with straight trigger blades in 3- and 4-pound pull weights. Two new models for use with steel-cased ammunition have just been introduced—a straight blade and a curved blade—both with 4.0-pound pull weights. All Velocity trigger housings are machined from 6061 T6 billet aluminum. The trigger, hammer and disconnector are precision EDM cut from tool steel, and heat treated for a lifetime of service. The hammer and disconnector are NP3 coated for super-smooth, corrosion-proof, all-weather operation.
If you can tie your shoes, you can install a Velocity Trigger. It takes less than five minutes—the guy doing it in the installation video on Velocity’s website does it 2 minutes 20 seconds flat—with only a wooden mallet and a pin punch. These are literally drop-in triggers, with absolutely no gunsmithing or special skills required.
We tested a pair of 3-pound Velocity triggers—one curved blade and the other straight blade. We installed both in a total of four AR-15s from four different manufacturers, all of which came from the factory with a doggy Mil-Spec trigger. The results were uniformly excellent, with clean, crisp trigger pulls, and no take-up or stacking, that gauged within an ounce of their stated pull weights.
