Velocity Triggers has launched its brand with an American made, drop-in trigger assembly that will fit all AR platforms. The initial product offering includes single stage trigger assemblies with either a traditional curved trigger or a tactical straight trigger, both of which are available in 3-, 4- or 4 ½-pound pull weight. All of the major parts of the trigger assembly go through extensive processes to insure a great final product.

The hammer, trigger and disconnect are cut from tool steel with a Wire EDM process, followed by heat treating for extended life. Then the hammer and disconnect are treated with Robar's NP3 metal finish. NP3 is an electroless nickel based finish that is very corrosion resistant and reduces friction. The housings are machined from 6061T6 billet aluminum and then green anodized for easy cleaning and reduced corrosion. Each trigger goes through a black oxide process and then is hand polished for a smooth finish. The trigger assemblies are then built and individually tested for pull weight and sear engagement.

MSRP $150.
