If you do your research on the gun and accessory manufacturer RISE Armament, you’ll come to an immediate realization. This Oklahoma company has a very real passion – no, obsession – with triggers.
According to RISE, everything important about a rifle (it’s dependability, accuracy, and performance) is dependent on one thing. The trigger.
The manufacturer’s passion for triggers is so deep that they even built a firearm (the 1121XR Precision Rifle) around their 535 Advanced Performance Trigger.
However, this company isn’t just “trigger-happy.” They’re also deeply patriotic, with strong American heritage and a passion for the red, white, and blue. It’s no wonder that their latest product’s name is the Patriot High-Performance Trigger. In fact, the trigger itself supports America by sporting a sleek red, white, and blue finish.
However, this patriotic does more than just look cool. The red, white and blue design is actually made to support veterans and their families. In fact, a portion of every sale of this trigger goes directly to Folds Of Honor.
Folds of Honor is an amazing organization that does some incredible work with veteran’s families. More specifically, they provide educational scholarships to the spouses and children of soldiers that either became disabled or lost their lives while serving this great nation.
Therefore, this trigger is more than just a way for shooters to show off their patriotism. It’s also a symbol of the brave men and women who have fought (and are continuing to fight) for the freedoms we Americans enjoy every single day.
RISE Armament President Matt Torres is incredibly proud of his company’s ability to donate to Folds Of Honor. After all, Torres feels many Americans tend to overlook the families of veterans. And this is very sad, especially considering the enormous amount of courage and sacrifices these men and women have been making.
According to Torres, it’s the duty of American citizens – as patriots – to honor our veterans, and to take care of them. After all, they’ve done far more for this country than we can ever repay.
There’s no doubt about it. The Patriot High-Performance Trigger gives to a very worthy cause. However, the trigger itself isn’t just flashy. It’s also very impressive.
For instance, according to Gun Digest:
The Patriot High-Performance Trigger itself sports some pretty impressive specs. The single-stage drop-in trigger group has a feather-light 3.5-pound break and extremely short reset, aiding both accuracy and rate of fire. Furthermore, it boasts a straight trigger blade for enhanced shooter control, as well as adding to a lighter-feeling pull weight.
The trigger is sold with free anti-walk pins and wrenches for installation and fits .223/5.56 and .308 AR-style platforms with Mil-Spec dimensions. Rise did not release the Patriot High-Performance Trigger’s MSRP.
