The Ruger Elite 452 MSR trigger is the perfect upgrade for any Modern Sporting Rifle. This two-stage trigger offers a smooth, crisp, 4.5 lb. trigger pull and a lightweight hammer that enables a 30% faster lock time over standard MSR triggers. The Ruger Elite 452 also features a full-strength hammer spring for consistent primer ignition and includes a safety selector and all necessary pins and springs for easy installation. Packaged with an ergonomic, optimized trigger-reach, polymer pistol grip, the Ruger Elite 452 is shipped fully assembled in a polymer fire control housing which allows the trigger to be dry-fired prior to installation, and the assembly can also serve as a trigger manipulation training tool. As an added benefit, the pistol grip and safety selector switch packaged with the trigger can be installed on any Mil-Spec AR rifle lower as replacement parts.

When you read the directions I thought hum alittle more in depth than I thought but just read it carefully and it's not bad at all to install and it works great 👍

The Ruger Elite 452 MSR Trigger [0461], is a great addition for AR-15. Buds got it, get it, you will be glad you did.

I ordered this trigger from Bud's after purchasing a Ruger AR pistol because the trigger that comes with it is stiff. The installation of the trigger was a snap after watching Ruger Tech Tips a couple times and only tok 5-10 minutes. The difference is amazing and the trigger is a HUGE improvement over the factory trigger. Having the pistol grip to store the old trigger is neat and you can practice your trigger pull safely with it. Busd's had the best price anywhere I could find. I would recommend it to anyone wanting an affordable alternative to the factory trigger. Very satisfied.

I really enjoy this trigger. Nice take up, with a tiny amount of play before a clean break. The only reason that I didn't give it a 5/5 is the reset. It is VERY long. There's an audible click when you find the reset, but it's so long there's almost no reason to listen or look for it.

The Elite 452 MSR Trigger was a great and cost-effective choice as an upgrade to my Ruger AR-556 stock trigger. I found the stock trigger to be heavy and rather vague, and knew after my first time at the range with it that the trigger would be getting some attention. AR's in general are well designed and pretty easy to field strip, so getting to the trigger was straight forward and the installation required very few tools (pin punch and mallet). Couldn't have been much easier. Many suggested drop-in trigger solutions and I'm sure there are good ones out there but the 452 got solid reviews, it's Ruger (so I'm keeping things in the family, so to speak) and the difference in feel the new trigger gives is night and day. My shot groups and overall accuracy improved quite a bit with this one upgrade. Highly recommend the Elite 452 and Bud's was solid on order fulfillment and delivery, as always.

Excellent AR trigger for Hunting/Target applications, I use these in all my Hunting MSR’s! ATTENTION SHOPPERS: This is a 2-Stage trigger which means there’s a consistant take up on every pull which feels totally different than a standard AR trigger. If your looking for a standard carbine trigger I suggest you stick to a single stage or at least a dressed up mil-spec trigger.

Excellent 2 stage trigger for the money .... When you are doing your own AR build, the price can get out of hand in a hurry. Check out some of the big name triggers and you'll know what I mean. I tried this trigger on my buddy's AR and was impressed with its feel. And the price was about the max that I wanted to spend for my AR build. I shopped around and Buds had the best price at the time. Their shipping was quick. I think this trigger is excellent if you are looking to build an AR rifle for more longer range precision shooting versus something like SBR or AR pistol build. For those types of build, I would be more apt to go with crisp one stage trigger.
