ALG Defense Combat Trigger - ACT

ALG Defense Combat Trigger - ACT

Availability: In stock




The ALG Defense ALG Combat Trigger (ACT) is designed for those shooters where tradition, value and regulatory concerns are of primary importance. The pull of the ACT is very similar to a standard mil-spec trigger, however it is sharper and the grittiness of the stock trigger pull has been removed while the traditional reliability of a stock trigger remains. The pull weight is not lower than the M4/M16 minimum weight specification of 5.5lbs. Tuned by Geissele Automatics

Performance Advantages for the Shooter:

  • The ALG Defense ACT trigger pull is smoother and sharper than a stock trigger. This is accomplished by polishing the sear surfaces smooth and HardLubing the trigger components.
  • Sear geometry has not been changed from the standard profile so the high reliability that the stock trigger is known for is unchanged.
  • Trigger and hammer are made from true 8620 alloy steel military specification castings, correctly carburized, quenched and tempered for high surface hardness.
  • Disconnector is 1070 High Carbon steel properly Austempered into the spring range of hardness.
  • Springs are corrosion resistant and meet military specifications.
  • A full force hammer spring is used for positive ignition of all type of ammunition.
  • Trigger and hammer pins are improved over stock mild steel by using 4140 Chrome-Moly steel that has been quenched and tempered. Pins are centerless ground to a fine finish and a diameter 0.001? larger than stock to reduce play in the trigger assembly while retaining a slip fit into the weapon lower receiver. Both pins are Nickel-Teflon coated.
  • Pull weight is above the U.S. Military minimum pull weight of 5.5lbs but does not reach near the upper limit of 9.5lbs. Generally, the pull weight is about 6.0lbs.

Advantages for the Armorer:

  • The ALG Defense ACT trigger is an enhanced standard trigger so maintenance and installation procedures are unchanged.
  • Trigger assembly parts may be interchanged between triggers, there are no matched sets.
  • As a trigger meeting the essential U.S. Military trigger specifications for the M4 Carbine, the ALG Defense ACT can be substituted for lower performing stock triggers while still staying in compliance with Unit or Departmental requirements.

Note about HardLubing: HardLubing is ALG's term for electroless Nickel plating with an integral modifier to the base nickel plate. Either Boron or Teflon is used to enhance surface hardness, wear resistance and corrosion resistance and also create favorable tribological properties of the trigger components. Testing has shown that differential coating of the trigger parts contributes to the sharpness of the ACT's single stage pull. The trigger component is plated with Nickel-Boron which has a high surface hardness combined with excellent wear resistance. The color is a pleasing matte light grey that may be painted on non-functional surfaces if the shooter so desires (such as the trigger bow that is visible outside the lower receiver). The hammer, disconnector and trigger/hammer pins are plated with Nickel-Teflon which combines a low coefficient of friction with good wear resistance. The Teflon impregnation colors the metal a mottled, greyish/green. Parts coated with Nickel-Teflon cannot be painted. Both coatings are highly corrosion resistant eliminating the oil seal of traditional phosphated firearm components.

excellent valueReview by
The trigger is an excellent value. pulls consistently at 4.6-4.8 lbs. Crisp break, you can hear the reset, an absolute bargain. I used KNS anti rotational pins in this build and everything worked well. Couldn't be happier with this purchase. (Posted on 11/3/2016)

This trigger is perfect for a fighting rifle it's not too light and not too heavy just smooth and consistent and it's known for providing reliable ignition, I have other pricier triggers but for a mid price build this is great for the money (Posted on 10/21/2016)

Great ValueReview by
If you don't want to spend $200+ for an Elftman (I like those too) then this is a good value for the money. The nickel treatment on the metal really slicks up the action and it really feels nice for such a low cost option. Install was easy, the pins are nice as are the colored springs that allow you to change the trigger pull.

Overall this is a great trigger for a solid price.

Great budget minded trigger!Review by
I bought this trigger for my budget minded AR build. It is a very high quality trigger. Fitment was great and it was easy to install. I was also impressed that it came with their optional purple spring for around a 4.5 pound trigger pull. I was only expecting you to come with the standard spring. It's nice to have the options of what trigger pull you want. Definitely recommend this product for anyone building a budget minded ar that doesn't want to spend hundreds of dollars on a fancy trigger. This trigger has a nice crisp clean break with a felt and audible reset and very minimal take up and over travel (Posted on 1/1/2016)
