I'm just wondering if anyone is interested in a "small group-buy" of KAC 2 Stage match triggers. If anyone is planning on building a sniper platform this the trigger you want!

This will fit any AR15 receiver or will also work with .308 receivers.

The price will be $270 and are ready to ship.

(Some motivational pics for you guys! Both rifles have KAC triggers):)

ETA: If there's enough people interested I will go ahead and open a new thread in the marketplace forum.

Thanks.

Do you know the reason for the big price difference from other 2-stage triggers? I'm not busting on the KAC at all, I just don't know how it differs and would like to learn more about it. Your price does seem quite a bit lower than what I've seen elsewhere for this trigger though.

Off topic, but what kind of trigger guards are those in the top picture?

It's the quality and what the market is willing to pay. The Geiselle and KAC are the current top dogs.

I've snapped a KAC trigger a couple times on a buddies rifle and it is nicer than my Jewell.

High quality triggers always fetch a premium: Kenyon, Anschutz, etc.

My KAC is the nicest AR trigger I've tried bar none (I bought it from Pablo)... Timney, WOA, RRA, LMT, JP, etc... The JP single stage with speed hammer was probably second best, but did not have that feel like an early Colt Python "glass rod breaking" that my properly adjusted KAC gets. It's just an amazing feeling.

I tried Pablo's Geiselle, but I don't think it was completely set up, as it wasn't as nice as I thought it should be, but by all reports, it's supposed to be a slightly better trigger with longer service life.

At $270, you can't go wrong though. If you want the best of the best, the KAC and Geiselle are the two best triggers available for the AR.

$270 is still steep.

Can you do it at $200 as Group Buy? I may get a couple.

edit to add;

KAC stuff are very nice and extremely pricy. I guess thats how Reed Knight charges to govt(s), and add extra % to the civil market.

I know this triggers are not exactly cheap. Why they demand a premium? Well actually the price is not that far a way from other quality 2 stage triggers. Just look at the price of the Geissele, it's almost the same.

One of the main reason why I prefer KAC triggers on my rifles is that they have been successfully tested by the military. There's no other 2 stage trigger system out there that has been in service with them as much as KAC's.

Thanks Xeno!:)

akspetsnaz, I know this triggers are "pricy"! But IMO they perform better than most triggers out there. Otherwise you'll see me doing a group buy of "XXXXX" triggers.

As the possibility of getting the price down to $200... well, we can only dream. In 2006 the retail price for this trigger was $325 and the Dealer price was $236. From what I understand KAC has been increasing the price of their products just like pretty much any other manufacturer in the gun industry.

Those trigger guards are also made by KAC. :)

I already did. I posted all the info here: http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/showthread.php?t=49602
I order some KAC stuff two weeks ago and received the parts this past week. My .308 project is on!
