Velocity Triggers™ Introduces Marksman Performance Choice trigger assembly

Phoenix, AZ – Velocity Triggers™ has added yet another American made, drop-in trigger assembly that will fit all AR platforms. The initial product offering has removable trigger shoes that are positioned ½” further forward for faster acquisition and they can be rotated on the axis for a perfect finger fit. The trigger shoes are machined from aluminum to a full 3/8” width and will be offered in three shapes: curved, straight or straight with finger stop. Each shape is offered either with a radius or flat face with serrations. The trigger shoes will be offered in 5 color options: anodized black or red and Cerakote Flat Dark Earth, OD Green and Pink. The trigger is available in 3 pound or 4 pound pull weight.

Velocity Triggers™ machines all of their major trigger parts in-house. The hammer, trigger and disconnect are cut from tool steel with a Wire EDM process, followed by heat treating for extended life. The hammer and disconnect are then treated with Robar’s™ NP3® metal finish. NP3® is an electroless nickel based finish that is very corrosion resistant and reduces friction. The triggers go through Diamond-Like Carbon Coating or DLC. This coating gives the trigger a combination of low friction and extremely hard surface that won’t wear down. The hardness level of DLC on the trigger exceeds 80HRC, which is harder than chrome plating. The trigger housings are machined from 6061T6 billet aluminum and then green anodized for easy cleaning and reduced corrosion.  The trigger assemblies are then built and individually tested for pull weight. MPC Trigger Assembly MSRP $189.95, MPC Trigger Shoe MSRP  $14.95.
