The Hiperfire HIPERTOUCH® Reflex (aka 24 3G) is the trigger of choice for 3 gunners and competition marksmen who want a trigger with a traditional look (curved trigger bow). It is a high precision fire-control drop-in for AR15 and AR10 rifles and features user-adjustable trigger weights. The 24 3G (formerly known as the 24T) is identical to the 24C but the 24 3G has a traditional curved trigger bow (instead of straight) and without the red hipershoe adjustable finger pad.
The Hiperfire / Hipertouch® triggers, or fire control groups (FCGs), have uniquely solved two problems with stock AR triggers and AR trigger upgrades respectively: 1) high trigger weight and 2) low hammer fall energy.
Trigger Weight: The real culprit behind high trigger pull weight is high sear impingement force that produces high friction. To get around that, the stock “AR” trigger and hammer mechanical advantage was changed and the toggle spring feature added to reduce the impingement force on the trigger sear. Designers of two-stage products changed the functional location of the primary sear; Hiperfire’s design has not, retaining the stock design’s single-stage simplicity. This is important for when stock triggers are pulled, the hammer cam-action signals hammer fall is imminent. When 2-stage triggers are pulled, the final higher weight stage also signals hammer fall. This can lead to the flinching problem we all know about. Some like to say the better 2-stage triggers have glass rod or candy-cane like breaks to sell the idea that they don’t signal hammer fall. In any case, the Hiperfire 24 3G does not signal hammer fall because the trigger weight is constant over the entire stroke.
Hammer Fall Energy: Hiperfire 24 3G features the unique toggle spring functionality that reduces trigger weight, but while doing so, it also increases hammer fall energy by over 35% over the mL-spec stock design and every trigger upgrade in the market. This permits the shooter to ignite hard military and foreign primers as well as hard to ignite 22 rimfire ammunition.
Hiperfire triggers retain Eugene Stoner’s design of simple elegance while remaining very robust, without the gritty feel. Shooting for high accuracy is no longer an almost impossible chore. It’s no longer necessary to improve the stock performance by manually polishing the high-friction trigger and hammer sear surfaces, where the end result was only marginally better anyway.
Ambitious sportsmen and marksmen have been turning to trigger upgrades with varying degrees of satisfaction. The better replacements have been one and two-stage triggers with fixed final weights ranging from between 2½ and 4½ pounds with what some have called a glass rod or candy cane trigger break. Some of these devices require factory or user calibration, maintenance, and/or replacement for wear or doubling. Some of these devices also employ reduced power springs, which have compromised reliable ignition for a “dream” trigger weight.
The Hiperfire “AR” accessory response to those shooter’s looking for a single-stage and very much improved, match quality, “AR” trigger upgrade that delivers high performance is the Hiperfire 24 3G. It nests in unmodified standard AR-15® and AR-10® type lower receivers in the same way as stock “AR” triggers and hammers without having to remove the safety selector. It is comprised of three subassemblies: the trigger, hammer, and toggle, spring groups. All the parts are made from carbon steel alloys that have been hardened for wear and strength. It features exceptionally low trigger weights with smooth pre-travel, a very clean hammer release with no report to break, unmatched tactical action response, and faster hammer lock-up. Only now with Hiperfire trigger and hammer actions does trigger “squeeze” have real meaning.
Hiperfire triggers may not be compatible with lower receivers whose pivot holes are outside the mil-spec dimensions. For complete and current information on this item please see the manufacturer’s website.
