Hello Art,

I was just wondering if there have been any developments on the MDR trigger pack since February.  This may be a dumb question but will your pack fit a 223 and a 308 MDR, or will the packs be different for each caliber?

Many thanks,

Jim

Some progress since Feb, not much.  I lost a couple of employees unexpectedly, and was in over my head just keeping up with resupply of current inventory.

However the project is not dead - I have a stack of aluminum blocks cut and squared, ready to go in the mill.  I have updated CAD files that are just about ready to turn loose.  And of course this next week is NRA convention in Dallas .... I will get there, I'm just late.  THe prototype is very nice (it will be at Dallas), so it is just a matter of executing.

Dunno on the 223 and 308 question, I'll discuss with DT at the show.  If the FCG are the same, one pack should fit both rifles.

That is correct, there is no difference in the sear pack for 223/308.

The first shot, is worth all the rest.

Art & ColdBore,

Thank you both for the information, and thanks to ColdBore for all of the MDR videos too!

I am eagerly awaiting the opportunity to buy the trigger pack, and to get my MDR.

I'm interested if it's better than OEM.

Put me the list if you have one.

I saw Art at the NRA convention in Texas yesterday.  He was boothed directly next to Gearhead, and there were a lot of people packed around both.  I hollered "thanks for your Tavor trigger" through the crowd.  Saw him look up, but I wasn't sure if he thought I called him a name or gave him a compliment...LOL!

From my previous experience with his Tavor and Sig triggers it will be better than the OEM (and I had a MDR so I know what the OEM trigger feels like).

Thanx.

Looking forward to it then. I might have everything to mod it long before I actually have the rifle. Most is already either paid for or is already on hand and waiting.

FWIW, I have almost never liked a standard trigger on a GI type rifle. While I would never take it into a rough environment I find the RDB to have a pretty decent trigger. I was hoping for the same or better in the MDR from the original claims quite some time ago, but from what I read that isn't so. Bummer.

I had a quick conversation with Art at SHOT and from the sounds of it he has a couple of other projects (triggers) in front of it that he is trying to complete. With the high demand of the MDR he still doesn't have a functioning MDR from DT to live fire test his prototype on. Be patient guys I'm sure when it is done it will be fantastic like his other triggers.

Getting a mdr to test with is one thing. Getting one that's completely functional might be tough.

Art would properly test the MDR with its trigger for safety, function and reliability more than DT ever did...

Here is an email I got from customer Service on March 21, 2019:

Thank you for your interest. These are currently still in prototype development, so I do not yet have a time frame of when they will be available for purchase. We have recently hired another person, so we hope this will progress quickly.

I have placed you on a list of people who are interested in this trigger, and we will email you when there are updates to this project.

Thank you,

Art told me on the phone that it won't be ready until early 2020.
