Product Preview: Velocity Marksman Performance Choice Trigger

posted on December 5, 2018

The Marksman Performance Choice (MPC) Trigger from Velocity Triggers gives AR-15-style arms a factory-set 3-lb. trigger pull with a customized feel thanks to a personalized trigger shoe. Options for the shoe’s profile include curved, straight and straight with a finger stop, and purchasers may also select the texture pattern and color. The trigger is a one-piece, drop-in unit that utilizes tension screws to eliminate pin walking. A DLC coating applied to the MPC Trigger enhances lubricity for smooth travel, while also providing corrosion protection to its ferrous metal components. Trigger take-up is non-existent, the single-stage break is crisp, and reset is short. Installation requires the grip and safety lever to be removed and re-installed following trigger assembly. Price: $190. Contact: Velocity Triggers; (602) 595-5931;
