Triggers for AR15 rifles: a simple yet so complex subject with as many opinions as there are people. Luth-AR now has a new single-stage drop-in trigger which is said to give a crisp, clean trigger break at around 3.5 lb. The drop-in functionality is something I really appreciate when building a rifle, as it saves me a lot of time and frustration. So far, I had no complaints or difference in feel between a drop-in trigger or one I installed all the parts in manually. The price for their new Modular Trigger Assembly is $149.95, which seems very competitive.
Here’s what Luth-AR has to say about their new MTA:
Introducing the MTA™ — Modular Trigger Assembly™
Luth-AR MTA™ Trigger
High quality AR-15 drop-in trigger.
When it comes to a performance trigger in an AR platform you have two choices, find a qualified gunsmith and pay them to perform a custom trigger job from stock trigger parts, or simply drop-in a Luth-AR MTA™ trigger ready to go. The MTA™ housing is made from 6061 Hardcoat Anodized Aluminum. The internals are precision cut from EDM process using A2 tool steel and heat treated to 40-45 HRC, and utilize SST bushings and springs resulting in a crisp 3 1/2 lb trigger break.
