Earlier this year, DefenseReview (DR) did a quick heads-up piece on the RISE Armament RA-535 Advanced-Performance Trigger (APT), which is worth checking out. Well, that’s not the only cool rifle trigger they’ve got over there. RISE also has a very interesting “independent” two-stage rifle trigger called the ICONIC trigger, and it’s also pretty slick.
Basically, the ICONIC Independent Two-Stage Trigger offer’s the “best of both worlds” in that it offers the control of a two-stage trigger with the “crisp, clean break and fast reset of a single-stage trigger.” Wow. Reads pretty great. AND, it’s “backed by RISE’s Lifetime Warranty”, so whatever happens, you’re covered. If the ICONIC trigger doesn’t perform as promised, RISE will “buy it back, no questions asked”. Can’t beat that.
We DO like quick/short resets on our triggers here at DR, so the ICONIC’s right up our alley.
Anyway, here are the specs:
“Platform: AR-15 or AR-10
No. of Stages: Two
Pull Weight: 1st Stage: 1 lb., 2nd Stage: 2 lb. (3 total)*
Trigger Blade: Curved
Material: S7 tool steel interior parts; 6061 aluminum housing
Colors: ICONIC Green, Graphite, or FDE
Includes: Free anti-walk pins
Guarantee: Best-of-Both-Worlds, Performance Guarantee
Warranty: RISE Lifetime Warranty”
At some point, Defense Review would really like DR writer/contributor and chief new-product tester Jeff Gurwitch to run both the ICONIC Independent Two-Stage Trigger AND the RA-535 Advanced-Performance Trigger (APT) at the range, to see what he thinks. If he gives them the thumbs-up, they’re good to go. In the meantime, enjoy the ICONIC promo video, below:
