GGP is excited to announce a new partnership with Timney Triggers for our MKII Lineup of rifles.
Since the very first inception of the combat born Heavy .308 rifle, we have been very particular when it comes selecting triggers. After all, when buying a top tier complete black rifle, one would expect it to include a premium trigger as well. We’ve always gone straight to the end user and asked them what they wish was in their duty rifle. All of our rifle offerings are designed for peak performance, whether it’s in the hands of a U.S. Ranger, or a 3-Gun Competitor. Both users demand a reliable trigger that is smooth and crisp with no creep, and a short reset for quick follow up shots.
Team Grey Ghost 3-Gun Team Captain JP Sullivan says “I like a drop-in trigger system that has a trigger between 2.5 to 3.5 pounds. Single stage with an extremely short reset is a must, and absolutely no over travel! There’s a lot you can do to your rifle for that competitive edge, but a great trigger is super critical to good hits and winning times.” GGP rifles have seen a few different bang switches over the course of their history. When we evaluate a trigger, we put professional fingers on the rifles to ensure that every stage and every feature of the trigger is exactly perfect for the job.
As of Q4 of 2019, Grey Ghost Precision is now installing Timney Triggers in all their hand-assembled MKII rifles.
Timney has been setting the bar in the trigger world for a very long time, and they’ve rolled that experience into a superior drop-in trigger for the AR-15 and AR-10 platform. Obviously precision matters greatly to us, and Timney’s reputation for quality and accuracy runs parallel to our mission as well. The GGP MKII Heavy .308 and the MKII Light 5.56 rifles built by Grey Ghost Precision will now feature Timney’s AR Competition Triggers in the straight, flat-faced configuration. Each trigger’s hammer is wire-EDM machined from S7 tool steel, with the other components EDM cut from A2 tool steel, then heat treated to RC 56-60 for long service life. The S7 tool steel has a hardness to resist wear with superior impact resistance to withstand heavy use without chipping or breaking. The cherry on top is the precision-ground finishing that each engagement surface receives to ensure superb reliability and a crisp, clean hammer release.
As for the PRS minded GGP MKII Grim 6.5 Creedmoor rifle, it will now come equipped with the Timney AR Targa 2 Stage trigger. This specialty straight trigger is tuned for a 2lb short first stage, followed by a 2lb second stage with a crisp break and a short, tactile reset that is consistent and clean. We all know that consistency is conducive to accuracy, and these Timney Triggers are ideal for shooting the best groups you’ve ever patterned with a semi-auto rifle.
The best news of all is this trigger upgrade hasn’t changed the MSRP of the GGP MKII rifles at all. The GGP Light 5.56 AR-15 has a retail of $1,899, while the Heavy .308 AR-10 is $2,500 and the Grim 6.5 Creedmoor is $3,099.
