With Ruger having just launched its first gas-impingment AR-15 rifle, the AR-556, it only makes sense the company would start providing upgrades as well. It's not uncommon for AR trigger groups to ship a sack of parts. But Ruger took the time to develop a gray polymer housing for the trigger assembly which allows customers to test drive it before they take it home. The assembly also includes the hammer and trigger pins, a safety lever, a Ruger logo AR grip, and a grip mounting screw, all of which can be installed in most mil-spec AR lowers. The Elite 452 two-stage trigger is listed as having around a 4 lb. 8 oz. trigger pull. But according to a Lyman's digital trigger gauge, the sample we receive ahead of SHOT Show demonstrated a crisp 3 lb. 14 oz. trigger pull while mounted in the polymer housing. This new product is launching with a suggested retail price of $159.95. Learn more at the ShopRuger.com website.
