Elftmann Tactical FAQ

 

Q: After installing my Elf Trigger I have to manually charge my gun between shots, it has become a single shot rifle.

A: 99% of the time this issue is caused by incorrect installation. Whether anti-walk pins are used or not, the set screws on the inside of the trigger body must be firmly seated against your receiver floor. It is absolutely critical that these screws are seated firmly. Turn one side until it’s barely snug then tighten the other side and alternate so pressure is evenly distributed. We now include a steel floor plate to protect your receiver – optional in aluminum receivers but required for polymer.

Q: What happened to the AK-47 trigger?

A: After long consideration we have made the decision to discontinue our AK drop-in. It boils down to our customer service department being overwhelmed with questions regarding the AK trigger before people even buy...we've had relatively few issues with installs, but we received so many inquiries about which platforms and parts are compatible we decided to scrap it and concentrate on the AR triggers which we can't make fast enough to handle demand. The AK triggers were a small percentage of our sales and took up 90% of our customer service manpower...just not making sense for us. We may re-visit the AK platform eventually, but for now we need all our efforts on the triggers that sell and just work every time. There is a possibility we may bring them back, but they will probably be even more expensive...

 

Q: I’m interested in becoming a dealer or OEM, what are the requirements?

A: Please leave your contact information on the "contact us" page. We require relatively small minimums and are happy to consider all requests.

 

Q: Will you trigger fit my (insert brand and model of rifle here)

A: If your rifle has a standard mil-spec AR-15 fire control pocket, our trigger will fit with few exceptions. (Most .308 lower receivers have a mil-spec fire control pocket as well) The exceptions include manufacturers that have a larger radius at the front of the pocket – our triggers fit, but some material must be removed from the receiver.

 

Q: I purchased a Curved trigger and would like to try the straight (or vice-versa) Can I purchase just the trigger bar and swap it out?

A: Yes – Please leave your contact information on our "contact us" page and someone will contact you. We don't sell "ala cart" on the website because some changes and improvements have been made to the triggers over the past year and not all parts are interchangeable.

 

Q: What is the difference between the Match and 3 Gun triggers?

A: The functional difference between the two is the lightened, skeletonized hammer on the 3 Gun trigger. This will slightly shorten the lock time (travel time for the hammer to reach firing pin after release) The take-up, break and overtravel is identical between the two. As of July 2016, the 3 Gun trigger also has an ultra-light body that brings the total weight of the trigger to just 2oz.

 

Q: I have a Colt rifle with large pins – do you have a trigger for me?

A: Please contact us or have your dealer contact us and we will use bushings that will accommodate the large pins.
