This weekend we will have a table at the Rochester Gun Show, where we’ll have business cards and Firearms Appreciation Month T-Shirts!!! Come visit us with any questions or concerns about the site, pick up some business cards to give to your friends, and chat about firearms!
Additionally, we’ve teamed up with Allstar Tactical, one of our sponsors, and we’ll be co-hosting and attending their Customer Appreciation Event, this Sunday (9/23), at Tony Pepperoni’s in Henrietta, NY. According to their post “We will also be holding a Customer Appreciation Event with NYFirearms.com AFTER the gun show on Sunday, 9/23, at Tony Pepperoni’s, also in Henrietta. Come join us to meet the Allstar Tactical team, our BeaverLube girls, and chat about the gun show! Pizza and Wings will be provided! This will be held at 4:30PM on Sunday, which will give us enough time to clean up our booth and head over there! It is our way to say THANKS to the community that has supported us as we grow, and also for us to give some customers who have had less than perfect experiences to come and chat with us so we can make it right!”
Hope to meet some of you guys and see you all there on Sunday! Check out their sweet poster below!
Review by EvilRP
I recently took the opportunity to train in Camden, TN with Tactical Response in their Fighting Rifle classes. I took down a rifle with the new trigger from Allstar Tactical for evaluation. The trigger itself appears to be very well manufactured and has a competition trigger feel with a smooth comfortable trigger face and modernized design. The trigger breaks crisp @ a bit over 6lbs and almost zero creep.
I took the time to make sure the rifle was sighted at my home range before going to the class and found the trigger very nice off my bench for the 30 or so rounds I sent downrange to verify consistent zero. After cleaning the rifle up I cased her up and off to Camden,TN.
The Tactical Response classes are round count intensive with a touch over 1500rnds in two days. The trigger performed perfectly, allowing me accurate fire and fast follow up in a combat style shooting atmosphere. One thing I really began to appreciate the trigger for was the smooth (maybe a touch wider than usual) trigger shoe face. After the first 700rnds several people not wearing gloves began to develop a sore spot on their trigger fingers along with fatigue in their hands. The trigger from Allstar offered me a much more comfortable purchase on the trigger itself and the minimal amount of movement and rapid reset curbed both fatigue and any type of blistering.
The second day the trigger was put into one of my light weight carbines as the rifle the fine people at Allstar sent me with was a bit heavy. It worked flawlessly in my carbine as well, rounding out with a touch under 1k rounds that day. I had several very fast very high round evolutions and the trigger was fantastic. I found the trigger really lent itself to rapid follow up shots with a clean fast reset.
Having had numerous trigger designs from several manufacturers I feel this trigger is well worth the cost. It offers a combination of single and double stage attributes that give it a distinct advantage over many. This single stage trigger offers an excellent break and fast reset two things that are greatly appreciated by competition shooters looking to squeeze every bit of accuracy out of their weapons. It also offers the reliability and safety that combat style shooters need, giving it a “best of both worlds” feel. As I understand it, there is a possibility that Allstar can lighten the trigger pull for a nominal fee which would make this a great three gun trigger if combat style shooting/training isn’t your thing.
After returning home I took the time to put the lower assembly from Allstar onto a Compass Lake Engineering NM A2 upper I have used for competitions like CMP. This upper will shoot far better than I can and really gave me the chance to see how the trigger would be on a true competition setup. My results were outstanding at 100yrds for a single stage battle trigger. The trigger consistently allowed me to hold groups of 5 rounds in a two inch or less group with irons off a bench with standard 62gr M855 ammunition.
I can honestly say I will be investing in a couple of these for my own personal weapons. I can’t thank Mike at Allstar enough for letting me try out their new trigger, it was fantastic and I’m looking forward to putting them in my own rifles.
