$278 shipped.

I'm assuming it's a single stage. NO idea if they're actually ready to ship. I had half a mind to order one when I saw but I'm not going to dump any more time or money into the mdr until it proves itself reliable.

Looks like a nice trigger pack.    If I understand the manual, it looks like you can adjust the wear engagement and the pull weight.

Hmmm, I thought I posted this earlier today but it disappeared somehow. I probably just hit preview. But it's here now.

Iím extremely trigger sensitive so when I heard about the Jard trigger I jumped on it.

Testing was done with a Wheeler trigger gauge. All tests are listed in the order they were collected.

I tested the stock trigger on my MDR before installing the Jard. Hereís what I got for 11 measurements. I wanted 10 measurements but clearly I canít count or check the trigger gauge. The factory lube is still in the trigger group and the measurements were taken high up on the trigger, at the curve of the trigger and pulling in line with the barrel and all stress parallel to the gun. The trigger group has been used at least hundreds of times to smooth things out.

7# 2.4 oz
6# 6.8 oz
7# 9.3 oz
6# 6.3 oz
5# 14.7 oz
7# 5.6 oz
5# 15.2 oz
8# 4.3 oz
7# 2.8 oz
7# 0.7 oz
6# 1.5 oz
for an average of 6# 14.8oz

Now for the Jard single stage trigger, itís brand new with no usage at all on it to smooth it out, same test parameters for shoe placement and such as with the DT trigger. Since the MDR trigger had factory lube I put some lube on the Jard trigger also. I adjusted nothing, just slid out the DT factory unit and slid in the Jard. It took maybe 10 seconds for the actual replacement once the gun was open and after the lube was applied. These were the very first ďshotsĒ with the trigger and itís really too soon to state anything definitive, but I might be seeing a general trend to a lighter trigger as the testing progressed.

2# 14 oz
2# 15.4 oz
3# 2.8 oz
3# 5.1 oz
2# 11.4 oz
2# 10.3 oz
2# 0.8 oz
2# 3.7 oz
2# 8.4 oz
2# 7.1 oz
1# 15.8 oz
for an average of 2# 9.5 oz

There is the initial take up, a very slight amount of smooth creep, then it breaks. Reset is quite noticeable both tactilely (SP?) and audibly. Maybe the creep can be adjusted out of it but I didnít bother and wonít.

To my sensitive trigger finger it was definitely worth the replacement. I wish it was a 2 stage trigger, but thisíll do.

Nice report, Brian. Looks like the trigger takes roughly 4 lbs off factory, pretty impressive. Might see about getting one in the future... unless Geissele decides to put their 2Ę in. 2 cents

I purchased one of these and unless I am clueless, which is possible, this is definitely a two-stage trigger... Pull up the slack and the second stage then engages... With additional pressure the trigger breaks clean and crisp.  Trigger-Pull-Guage indicates 2.5#(ish) break.  Better than I anticipated.  A worthy upgrade!

Yeah maybe 2 stage. Maybe that's the take up I described. It's not like other 2 stage triggers I've ever felt though. Maybe better? Or maybe mine needs adjustment? I just know I like it.

Edit: yup definitely 2 stage. What was I thinking? Senior moment. That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it. Cheesy

I have a Geissele National Match, a Hyperfire Hypertouch Competition, and AR Gold triggers on my ARs.  The MDR trigger isn't as good as any of them, but not far off.  Because it is a bullpup, I wasn't expecting it to be this good though.

I've not actually gone out to shoot it though....

Making me want to part with $278... I'm not super happy with the stock trigger, but Im 90% sure my issue is me, not the gun. My coworker has pulled off some nice groups with my rifle that I just cant seem to replicate. Sooner or later I'll get it I suppose, that and I keep tweaking my loads.
