Ruger Introduces Elite 452 AR-15/MSR Two-Stage Trigger

Ruger has introduced it's first ever drop-in aftermarket trigger upgrade for AR-15 style rifles, which comes just after the introduction of their new BX-Trigger for 10/22 Rifles.

The new Ruger Elite 452 MSR is a two-stage trigger that reduces the factory trigger pull weight on Modern Sporting Rifles (MSRs) to a crisp pull of around 4.5 pounds. The trigger assembly features a lightweight hammer for a 30-percent faster lock time over standard AR triggers as well as a full-strength hammer spring for consistent primer ignition.

The Elite 452 MSR trigger includes a safety selector and all the necessary pins and springs for quick and simple installation. The assembly also incorporates an ergonomic polymer pistol grip with an optimized trigger reach and comes fully assembled in a polymer fire control housing, allowing the trigger to be dry-fired prior to installation. This gives the shooter the ability to test the trigger at a retail location before purchase or use the full assembly as a training tool for improved trigger manipulation.

The new Elite 452 MSR trigger fits any AR-15 receiver with .154-inch trigger/hammer pins. It is available now for $159.95.
