Geissele Triggers for ARs and Space Guns

This summer, Carl Bernosky became the first shooter to win the NRA High Power competition at Camp Perry using an AR-platform, semi-automatic rifle. Since that accomplishment, many folks have asked about the fire-control system in Carl’s gun. Carl used a John Holliger-built upper fitted with a Match Rifle Trigger from Geissele Automatics. Priced at $279.00, the Geissele (pronounced “Guys-lee”) Match Rifle Trigger features a 1.3 to 3 pound First Stage (2-lb nominal), with a 4 to 14 ounce Second Stage. This allows a very crisp, light final trigger release. The Geissele trigger, with its low-mass, hi-speed hammer, has a fast lock-time, and also delivers enhanced kinetic energy to the firing pin.

The Geissele Match Trigger boasts Wire EDM-cut sear surfaces for a crisp and consistent release with minimal drag. Overtravel is adjustable, and there are separate, independent adjustments for Second Stage pull weight and sear engagement.

In addition to the Match Trigger, Geissele Automatics offers a Service Rifle Trigger set up for the 4.5-lb minimum pull weight. Minimum pull weight for Service Rifle competition is 4.5 lbs, and the Geissele provides a 3.2 to 5 pounds First Stage, with a 0.5 to 1.5 pound Second Stage. The Geissele Service Rifle trigger employs an exclusive 5-coil trigger spring for a nominal 4-lb First Stage, allowing allow a light 0.5-lb (8-ounce) Second Stage with crisp, light break similar to the Match Rifle Trigger.
