Paracord trigger job for AR, have you tried this? Login/Join

Saw a post on this technique for improving the trigger on an AR rifle on another forum a few months ago. I have since performed this procedure on all my ARs that have mil-spec triggers. I'm very pleased with the result especially for ZERO cost.

The link to the YouTube video is below, or just go to YouTube and search for "paracord trigger job". Not my video, BTW.

Ha! THAT was quick!

I was still messing around getting the link fixed. Thanks!

That will smooth out the trigger pull but it won't do anything to fix the take up or overtravel inherent to the GI trigger.

It is an improvement. But it won't make a really good trigger. It is a variation on the pull the trigger 500 times method.

Completely agree. What it does do is get rid of the grittiness while taking up the trigger. And it's that grittiness that's my biggest complaint when shooting an AR with a GI trigger.

People have been doing that to revolvers forever. Not a fan of that either.

I like the animation and the links to the 3D model. The presenter seems to be an intelligent and articulate fellow. I personally prefer the wear in method instead of the "artificially induce wear" method the presenter demonstrates as I'm unsure what second and third order impacts the whole "wrap parachord around your hammer and impart a lot more force on the part in a direction that its not accustom to in normal operation. Definitely less dangerous then some of the other methods out there though.

I'm also skeptical of "tricks taught by Army Buddies". After watching one of said tricks resulting in the accidental discharge of a belt fed automatic weapon (with full belt) in a LSA.

Cycled mine 100 times to get the improvement I referred to. MUCH preferable to burning up 500 rounds with what I found to be a pretty awful trigger.

A light grease like TW25b or a moly paste applied to the hammer/trigger interface will do the same thing.

Another option is dry firing, which doesn't consume any ammo at all. Of course, only dry fire an AR with the upper installed. For people wanting to develop precision shooting technique, dry firing allows us to become familiar with the AR trigger and to learn to break the shot without disturbing the sight picture.

I used that on all of my ARs that have a stock military trigger and it has worked very well. I am pleased with the results.

Dremel and polish. Use polishing wheels and tips with some metal polish. Polish till the grease line is gon on the flat. It will look like a mirror. Then polish the sear. Breaks like glass of iTunes no grit.

I'd be leery of doing this with a revolver as well.

First of all the single-action trigger on any quality revolver is light years better than the standard trigger on an AR15, so it's not necessary.
Secondly replacing trigger parts on an AR is simple and cheap while replacing trigger parts on a revolver is anything but.
