Jeremy Bedsaul recently took a look at the “entry level” RISE Armament RA-140 Super Sporting Trigger and sent us over a brief video overview. It seems to be a solid trigger for the price…but, as always, we’re very curious to know what your experiences have been in the comments below.

Jeremy takes a look at the RISE Armament RA-140 Super Sporting Trigger in this video review.

For more about RISE Armament and their triggers, including the RISE Armament RA-140 Super Sporting Trigger, you can also check out a recent company overview we did.

In that article…about the RISE Armament RA-140, they told us:

“If you start with our RISE Armament RA-140, that’s our entry level. We call it our ‘good’ trigger…We have kind of a ‘good-better-best.’  The RA-140 is a great trigger, especially for the price point. You can’t beat it.”

I’m on my 4th RA-140. A drop in 3 lb.single stage trigger for less than $120? I love them- usually buy them on sale for $80.
