The HIPERTOUCH 24C is the competition version of high precision fire-control drop-ins for installation in AR-15 and AR-10 type rifles. The HIPERTOUCH name is short for HIgh PERformance TOUCH, 24 for user adjustable trigger weights and C for competition marksmen like 3-Gunners.
The Genius of the HIPERTOUCH Fire-Control
HIPERTOUCH 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 HIPERTOUCH 24C does not signal hammer fall because the trigger weight is constant over the entire stroke.
Hammer Fall Energy: HIPERTOUCH 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 MIL-spec stock design and every trigger upgrade in the market. This permits the shooter to ignite hard MIL and foreign primers as well as hard to ignite 22 rimfire ammunition.
HIPERTOUCH FCGs 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 21⁄2 and 41⁄2 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 shooters looking for a single-stage and very much improved, match quality, "AR" trigger upgrade that delivers high performance is the HIPERTOUCH 24C. 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 sub-assemblies: 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, match action response, and faster hammer lock-up. Only now with HIPERTOUCH trigger and hammer actions does "AR" trigger "squeeze" have real meaning.
Additionally, the HIPERTOUCH 24C also sports the HIPERSHOE adjustable finger pad, which can be positioned at five (5) different vertical detent locations along the 24C's straight trigger. By changing location, the shooter can further adjust pre-travel and weight within a broader range than without it as desired for even more trigger responsiveness. Also, the adjustable pad lengthens slightly the extension of the finger to the pad with respect to the pistol grip, which alters the feel and dexterity of the finger on the trigger for added comfort and/or control. The trigger can be installed and operated with and without the shoe.

The trigger itself has an amazing feel, it has no creep or takeup and a very minimal overtravel with a tactile and short reset. and the "shoe" although strange to look at its very easy to get used to and it forces an incredibly consistent finger placement.
Moving the shoe up and down increases/decreases leverage so the result is a heavier feel on the trigger with the shoe up high and a lighter pull when low.
If you have a standard triggerguard you will have to drop it to get the shoe in place. With a magpul enhanced triggerguard it looks like it wont fit but you can rock it into place and force it onto the trigger.
Installation is fairly straightforward, make sure to put your safety back in before you start.v That is if you had to remove it to take out your old trigger.
The Directions leave a little to be desired with "how" to install the spring kits, but where everything goes is pretty easy to figure out, if you are capable of installing a regular trigger you should have no trouble figuring this out.
The instructions are wordy with lots of terms like toggle shaft toggle pivot and toggle spindle, however the pictures are pretty self explanatory.
I cant wait to get out to the range and try this trigger out, from all indications from dry firing these with the extremely helpful trigger demonstration modules at Ranier Arms' facility in Auburn I have no doubt this trigger will certainly help with shooting groups at 100yds and long range accuracy.
I replaced a Jard 3.5# trigger with this Hiperfire 24C and the 24C is miles above the "match grade" Jard. the Jard would be great for a Carbine, its certainly better than a stock trigger. But for groups and Competition the Hiperfire is well worth the money.
Highly recommended. (Posted on 7/31/2015)
