The Elftmann "Paintball" Trigger: for your M4

We're going to try to remain open minded about this. Sometimes goofy things aren't so goofy once you use them. The Elftmann D-TR trigger, manufactured by Dillon Precision, may be one of those things.

Then again, it may not.

Says the creator, "After playing against and using double triggers we found them to be a superior product and we all switched to the double triggers. For years I wondered why they were not on real fire arms, after doing some research we found that the AR-15 seemed to be the weapon of choice to put the double trigger on. So we developed the DTR to fit all milspec AR-15 rifles. Now after thousands and thousands of rounds with the DTR on the AR-15 we found it to be superior on a real fire arm too."

Shooting Illustrated reviewed the 'double trigger' (which isn't really double, it's extended) and didn't dismiss it. In fact, their admittedly skeptical reviewer didn't really find much to complain about.

The Elftmann marketing director says, “It is really pretty simple—it is basic hand mechanics: You have more strength when pulling your index and middle fingers simultaneously, as opposed to just your index finger. This increased strength translates to your ability to pull the trigger faster…We believe that the D-TR is a great solution that allows the AR-15 user to increase the rate of fire, but not to the rate of generating muzzle lift. So, as opposed to a tactical officer using a fully-automatic weapon—we believe that there is an argument that would justify using the AR-15 with our trigger. It is a good balance between speed, accuracy and ammunition management.”

About the Author

Richard "Swingin' Dick" Kilgore is half of the most storied celebrity action figure team in the world (and the half that doesn't prefer BBWs). He believes in American Exceptionalism, America, holding the door for any woman (lady or whore) and the idea that you should be held accountable for what comes out of your fucking mouth. Swingin' Dick has been a warrior gyrovague for many years now and is, apparently, impossible to kill -- he once had a complete body transplant after an IED hit the gun truck in which he was riding. True story, one of the Cav guys mailed his head and arm home. Swingin' Dick comes from a long line of soldiers and LEOs (his Great Uncle commanded an Air Cav battalion in Vietnam and his many times removed great grandfather was one of the few original Burt Mossman era Arizona Rangers). Swingin' Dick detests Joy Behar and Chris Matthews almost as much as he enjoys traveling the world to crush crime vice and evil. He believes the opportunity to lead eeeelight team of Breach Bang Clear minions is the most improbably awesome thing an action figure has ever done and he's immensely proud of his perfect hair. Loyalty and respect should start from the top down.
