Now available in Europe through Ferkinghoff International, the Timney Triggers Impact AR is the "People's Choice" trigger set engineered and manufactured for budget-build AR-15 platforms

Timney Triggers – the world's oldest and largest manufacturer of drop-in triggers, and a global leader in the field of aftermarket triggers for sporting firearms – announced the Impact budget-minded trigger for AR-15 rifles and carbines in late 2019.

 

This gives the Company's own, high-end, tried-and-tested competition triggers a "little brother" that's by no means inferior in terms of quality.

 

While lacking some of the highly appreciated and coveted features of Timney's own competition triggers, such as adjustable weight or trigger shoes, the Impact offers the highest levels available on the global market for entry-level AR-15 triggers, providing builders – both home-builders and professional gunsmiths – with an new, exciting choice.

Now available in Europe through Ferkinghoff international, the Impact trigger offers the staggering, guaranteed quality levels of the Timney Triggers brand at a fraction of the price of higher-end products from the same manufacturing company as well as by many competitors: $149.99 in the United States, 189,95€ in Europe.

 

In order to obtain the best possible levels of quality and performance from an entry-level AR-15 trigger, Timney engineers came out with a way to machine the components of the Impact from billet steel: no slimping with injection molding or "old school" stampings. And still, all Timney Impact triggers are assembled in-house and hand-tested by Timney technicians before shipping out of the factory.

The hammer on the Timney Impact trigger is EDM wire-cut from a single block of S7 tool steel, a material that will provide just the right level of hardness to make sure that the hammer will resist wear and impacts without chipping or breaking from long-term, heavy use.

 

Other components of the Timney Impact trigger are EDM wire-cut out of A2 tool steel, and subsequently heat-treated to RC 56-60 to match the long service life of the hammer. All components are captive in a lightweight aluminum alloy housing, making installation easier.

 

The Timney Impact trigger drops in on any and all MIL-Spec AR-15 lower receivers, and will hold in place using the rifle's original hammer and trigger pins; while both the manufacturer and the European distributor recommend that professional workmanship is employed in installing a trigger, the proprietary design of the Timney Impact is guaranteed to eliminate pin walkout, and makes it easier even for home builders to install on their lower.

 

The Timney Impact comes with a curved trigger only, and provides a factory pre-set 3-4lbs (ca. 1,3 to 1,8 kilograms) break that's not adjustable by the user and yet remains crisp and clean, right from the very get go, and for years to come.

 

It is safe to say that the Timney Impact is by far the best drop-in economy trigger for budget AR-15 builds. Whether you're a gunsmith, the owner of a small company that manufactures budget-minded AR-15 rifles and carbines, or a shooting enthusiast looking for a way to customize your beloved AR ever further, Timney Triggers and Ferkinghoff International have a new world of possibilities now open for you, and at a very affordable price.
