Description

LaRue Tactical MBT-2S Trigger
In a world of instantly M.I.M.'d rifle and pistol components, we threw on the brakes, slowed to a walk, and built 2-stage triggers out of solid S7 tool steel plates. Meticulous triggers built by our staff toolmakers ... without a stopwatch in sight.

No question, we’re particular about accuracy. Everyone knows that one of the smartest improvements an AR-owner can do to their rifle is a precision trigger upgrade. Everyone also knows that LaRue Tactical has a track-record of doing things right. The LaRue MBT-2S was purposefully designed and manufactured to render the greatest benefits from our legendary line of accurate rifles. The MBT-2S can also replace the stock trigger on any mil-spec AR lower receiver.

Sparing no expense, all major components are precision-machined from S7 Tool Steel. The result of this extra effort is a glass-smooth, hyper-consistent trigger that will satisfy even the most scrupulous competition shooter, but also be overly rugged for the battlefield. The MBT-2S breaks crisply at 4.5 lbs (2.5 lb first stage, 2 lb second stage) and has a smooth and positive reset. Each trigger comes with an additional "heavy" trigger spring that increases the pull weight to 6 lbs.

Made in-house, in Texas, in the USA.

Seems like $87 is the new normal price for the MBT. Got one on the 'before Christmas' sale, but havent shot it yet. Feels great dry. If they stay $87 all the time, I'll very likely get another before the coming Christmas as I have another lower in need of trigger love.

Ordered mine on 2/22 shipped on 3/1. Was told 2-3 week wait time. I didn’t care, it’s a great trigger at a great price regardless of the shipping cost.

I'm waiting for free shipping if you buy 2 or more. Prices have come down on a bunch of triggers so if it doesn't happen, I'll be getting different triggers.

That’s an excellent idea....that will shorten the wait for people who know it’s a great deal already.

I've waited for four of these triggers. I'll soon be waiting for number 5. They are definitely worth the wait - and the price is super.

I paid a bit more for mine and have never regretted it. Not only a crisp break but the best reset in the business.

Mine shipped a couple days ago. UPS seems to have lost the shipment today (says delivered 1pm, I was home and nothing was at the door). Anyway, I patiently waited a 5 week lead time for the trigger to ship. I don't know if I can wait another 5 weeks. :(

As luck would have it, the trigger showed up!

Really nice craftsmanship. Great break and reset. Million times better than my old Mill spec

These triggers are worth the wait especially for the cost. Took me two weeks to get my order in. Would do it again in a heart beat but I purchased more than one just to have on hand.

I've never heard more pissing and moaning than I've heard over the "wait time" for this trigger. Here is a simple solution. Just order an extra one for your War-Chest.

Good luck on receiving your order before spring arrives. I ordered one late last February and it did not ship until the first week in May, that’s no bullshit. Hell Of a trigger though, if you ever get to use it.

Ordered 2 days ago and found out why it's called "The until Christmas sale." Backordered for 2-3 weeks to manufacture them. So there ya go they'll be ready to ship by Christmas.

Not sure if I got a bad one but the reset on this trigger is awful. It's gritty and unpredictable. Also, the packaging is crap. "Meticulously built trigger", carelessly packaged. Won't buy another.

I have three of these, one of which was purchased early this year, and the other two purchased a month or so ago as part of this sale.

Of the 3, two were flawless out of the box, absolutely the best triggers i've ever tried on an AR. The third had an issue resetting. It would sometimes hang up and not reset at all, every other round or so. An (extremely) light tap with my finger and it would reset. Hoping it was a minor fitment issue, I lightly greased the contact surfaces in the trigger (not something I normally do), and it's been beautiful ever since. 100% flawless function and feels every bit as good as the other two I have.

I don't know if your issue is the same as mine, but try a few drops of grease or lube throughout the trigger and see if that gives you a smoother break in.

Ordered one Mon 10/8/18.
Tues 10/9/18 email from Larue, in production with a 2-3 week lead time.

From what others have said it should be worth the wait.

Great deal. I have a few. They just need to retrain the person who packs them into the can. Show them how the foam cut out works so they don't bang off each other during shipping.

for $87 this is pure robbery compared to the competition (dollar for dollar). It's about halfway inbetween an SSA and an SSA-E and at less than half the price! I ordered two and popped them in a couple of rifles...holy eff me in the backside these things are sexy. Ordered 3 more immediately

I finally got around to installing mine. I paid $100 back in April. I now want two more. It’s amazing. Changed the way I think about triggers. I love this thing.

Its a good trigger for the money but your order will be on backorder after they charge your card the day you order. It took 3 weeks for mine to get in. They also filter the reviews on their site so no one can post negative responses. Very deceptive practices in my opinion.

Is shipping $150? Because this was a $250 trigger when it launched in 16.

This never was a $250 trigger, this is a $100 trigger they tried selling for $250.

It was a $250 trigger until we built a dedicated shop with all new processes to get cost down https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t9JXffvZ74k&t

Ok, I ordered mine on 8-10, came in on 9-7. I knew this going in, so not a problem for me, but if you can't wait you might look elsewhere.

Now as for the trigger. I have owned and do own better, but for what I paid it's not bad. The MBT has a short and light take up on the first stage, and a nice clean break on the second. My only complaint is the shape of the trigger bow, it has more squared edges than I like, but I can live with it, it's not like I have it on a target rifle, lol.

Well I "pulled the trigger" on one of these about two weeks ago. I'm in no hurry but I will report back when I get mine as to how long it took.

I ordered two triggers on 7/25 and was told at the time it would be two weeks from order to ship. It is now three weeks and it still shows as being on backorder. I will give it another week and then I will cancel my order. Good deal or not, I don't like being told one thing and then not have it occur, especially when my card was charged at the time of the order.

Dan, I had to cancel my order with them for the same reason. Stag is running an amazing deal right now.

Looks like a pretty good deal. I would be interested to know how that trigger feels at those heavier pull weights. I have two particular guns that I would like to move to a two stage trigger but haven't because most are usually setup at with a combined pull weight of 4.5 lbs or less. I wanted to keep the heavier pull weight of the milspec trigger. I was thinking about getting a couple different springs sets and experimenting with them on one of my existing two stage triggers but that one is already setup at the desired pull weights. Might just have to order one and see how it works out.

Well, even though I have installed the trigger on my rifle, I haven't gone to the range yet. As far as dry firing goes, this Stag 2 stage trigger:

1. has a short take-up, and
2. crisp take-up (it feels like there is almost no movement).

I haven't measured the pull weight either. Having said that, I actually liked this heavier pull offered by Stag, now that I tried something different. However, this may be a matter of personal preference.
