Default Hiperfire EDT series triggers-anyone here used them?

Joe bob outfitters keeps hammering my inbox withbads for the hiperfire triggers and I must say my will power is waning, they are starting to look pretty good.

Just wanted to see if anyone here had used them and what their impression of them was? My current rifles all have Larue MBT in them, aside from being single stage are rheybfairly comporable?

I have an EDT and an MBT and both are good. The EDT has a bit more creep than the MBT's 2d stage. If the Larue is on sale for $99 I'll buy it otherwise I'm happy with the EDT.

I have the Elite (24E) in my PWS 6.5 CM. Works great.

If you want single-stage, Brownells has the RA-140 for $85 shipped with coupon codes. Very well reviewed.

Just my personal taste but I donít care for the casserole type drop in triggers, especially those that need kns type pins.

Do RA triggers need KNS pins?

24 3G here. I like the different settings that are available. It’s interesting that the stiffer the trigger pull weight is, the lighter the primer strike will be. And the lighter the trigger, the heavier the primer strike will be. It’s the opposite with most other triggers.

At the end of the day, it’s unique and I like the fact that I don’t have to worry about light primer strikes with a super light trigger.

The EDT is not like this, and I cannot comment regarding its quality. It looks like a normal trigger to me, and would assume it’s probably better than an enhanced milspec and not as good as most single stage drop ins.

But that’s me assuming....

We have a 24C for USPSA/SCSA as well as a 24A. I know three other guys that have them as well. Not the same design, but great products and great support.

I would say that they aren’t comparable The mbt has a crisper break than most triggers out there. I have a couple of the hiperfire 3g triggers and they are very good. For a conventional-ish single stage trigger, it iis hard to beat. I haven’t had the opportunity to try the geiselle yet and I cannot comment on the other models of the hiperfire. I also have a ra140 in one of my builds that I bought on a whim. The ra140 is crisper with no distinguishable creep than the hiperfire and the reset is super shorter. These cassette dropins are pretty crafty And their prices are super reasonable.

As for kns pins, I think they should be used with all dropins. I haven’t seen a retention setup on them that has impressed me yet.

EDT3 here. Works great as far as a duty trigger goes, no creep and breaks cleanly. I really like the flat portion on the bottom of the bow for long distance prone shooting.

If you are looking for duty/self-defense, the EDT is good. It is definitely a step up from Mil-spec. If you are looking for using in competition, other choices with less creep and lighter trigger weight would probably be better.

Im mainly looking for SPR type rifle triggers.
I would stick with the MBt as Ive been very happy with it but the EDT's are so damn cheap!
Ill probably grab a couple with the new gun parts sale ban incoming.

I have the 24 3G which is fantastic. Honestly, I will 90% use them in all future builds.

I just love my HP triggers. I am dumping all my Geissele triggers and going with HP triggers. Funny you ask, I just got the top of the line trigger from JoeBob's for $199.

You won't be disappointed.

The only other trigger I really like and won't trade in is my POF trigger on my AR-10. Wow, that's a nice trigger too. I like it more than my Geissele.

I've never tried the AR Gold trigger though. I'm selling my Timney AR trigger for $150 right now in the marketplace. I took it out and put in an HP trigger.

Timney triggers have two set screws that tension the trigger housing to the lower so anti-walk pins are not "required," but still a good idea.

All the drop ins that I have seen with the exception of the pof has some sort of tension screw. Most of them are a pain to set and I have seen them loosen up on several of my friends builds. Maybe they didn’t put enough tension on the set screws but how much pressure do you really want to force on two small points of contact on the aluminum lower. If it was designed to capture to the steel hammer and trigger pins, I would be happier.

For a spr, I would encourage a 2 stage trigger. On a budget, the mbt is the way to go. Even so, I would have a had time choosing between the mbt and a ssa-e for that role.

Is RRA 2-stage significantly worse than LaRue MBT?

Not significantly different but certainly noticeable. They are largely less consistent though. I’ve felt some really good ones and some meh ones. There was a rash of reports of the rra trigger wearing out prematurely a while back. Rra was one of the originators and they did have a great product for the time. There is just a lot more competition in that space now. For the 20 dollar difference, the mtg is far superior in material and noticeably a better trigger. In fact, material wise, the mbt rivals the geissele.
