Timney Triggers has leveraged its history as the oldest and largest aftermarket trigger manufacturer in the world with a new budget-minded AR trigger: The Impact.

Responding to consumer requests, Timney developed its Impact trigger as an option that is uncompromising on quality but is priced right for any budget AR build. The Impact is the latest offering in the company's People's Choice lineup of trigger options.

The engineers at Timney devised a way to machine the parts for the Impact from billet steel without resorting to metal injection molding or stamped, old-school parts and assemble the triggers without breaking your budget. Despite the low price of $149.99, each Impact is still hand-tested by the trigger technicians at Timney to get you a crisp and 3 to 4 pound break and drop-in compatibility with all mil-spec ARs.

All components in the Impact are captive in the lightweight, aluminum-alloy housing. The hammer is wire-EDM cut from S7 tool steel, which combines hardness to resist wear with superior impact resistance that withstands heavy use without chipping or breaking. The other components are wire EDM cut from A2 tool steel and then heat treated to Rc 56-60 for long service life. The trigger installs using your rifle’s original hammer/trigger pins, with a proprietary design that eliminates pin walkout.

Timney Triggers is dedicated to ensuring their customers have a lifetime of hassle-free shooting enjoyment. Each trigger is hand assembled, tested and calibrated for the specific rifle model it is intended for before it’s delivered to the customer’s door. Like every product in the Timney line, the Impact has Timney Triggers’  lifetime warranty, and each trigger is made in the USA.

MSRP on the Impact is $149.99, and more information is available at timneytriggers.com.
