JP Drop in or AR gold

Recommended Posts

I currently run a JP rifle with an AR Gold trigger in it. I love the AR gold trigger but want to try one of the new JP triggers that is set up like the Gold.  Anyone running one of these new JP Triggers?  gimme some feedback... thanks

Switching out a sub 2lb trigger for a wildly overpriced 3.5lb trigger? No thanks.

I'm not seeing on the site where it says its a 3.5lb trigger... you know anyone with one of the new triggers?

I had to search to the ends of internet to find some people that tested the weight. JP doesn't publish it anywhere that I could find, I'm guessing they know that no one will be that eager to spend $300 on a relatively heavy trigger.

I think I am going AR Gold moving forward.  We bought one used from a friend who said he can outrun the AR Gold but that is the first I heard of that.

Im a sponsored shooter from JP so I will have to get one of these and do a review on here for it.  I think the only thing I will have to compare it to is going to be the AR gold and a hyperfire... I will call them tomorrow and get it going.  more to come

you can't go wrong with the AR gold thats for sure.  I have seen plenty of people outrun the AR gold but not on the clock if you will.  I am pretty sure John Mclain runs sub 10 spits with his gold on the clock so i wouldn't worry to much about outrunning the trigger.  that really has more to do with the bolt cycle speed then the trigger.

Just a general question for you guys with AR Golds - does your trigger shoe have some side to side wobble? I bought a flat AR gold a year or so ago And the shoe (not the cartridge) kinda could rattle around, felt like bad build quality for a $300 trigger, is it normal on yours? I wound up returning it and going with something else bc there was a strange issue with it in my rifle as well as the wobbly shoe. Wondering if it was just a dud unit, and ATC didn’t return my emails.

I have three AR gold, two have some wiggle.  Other triggers to look at that are amazing are the Timney Calvin elite and the Triggertech Diamond.

Timney is my go to trigger. AR gold was too sensitive for my taste.

Wow. I just dropped this in my rifle about 3 days ago! Lol I haven’t had the chance to shoot it yet. (Headed to the range probably tomorrow ) but I will give you feed back once I do. Just dryfiring it feels AWEXOME! I had a Timney in it, which is a great trigger, but my buddy won this as a door prize and didn’t want it. This trigger has zero creep in it. I don’t have a trigger gauge but if I had to guess it’s 1.5 pounds to set this off. 
 

im working up some loads for this rifle for 3G and will give you a report back by the end of the weekend

Which trigger are you describing? I know its not the Timney, but is it the AR Gold or the JP drop in?

Thanks,

Mark
