Overview of the Geissele S3G Super 3-Gun AR-15 Trigger
The genesis of the Geissele S3G trigger has it origins in the SSF trigger that Bill Geissele originally developed for the SOCOM. The Super 3 Gun AR-15 trigger was engineered with the goal of combing the SSF trigger’s match grade, semi-auto performance with a smooth, single stage feel. This combination should make for a robust trigger that is fast, smooth and ideally suited for 3-Gun matches.
The characteristics of this Geissele trigger were tailored for the 3-gun shooter. The Geissele S3G has a very short and crisp trigger pull with a fast a tactile reset to allow competitors to send rounds down range as fast as possible. The short trigger pull and fast reset of the Super 3 Gun Trigger make it a cross between a single stage and 2-stage trigger.
The Trigger Pull
It takes about 3.5 pounds of for to get the S3G Geissele trigger moving. It moves very smoothly and a short distance before the sear disengages and the hammer drops. During the trigger take-up, there is no perceivable second stage, the trigger smoothly rolls back and then simple breaks.
