“When we set out to design the Blitz, we wanted to give customers what they love most about RISE triggers—reliability, performance, and value—and then take things up a notch,” said Matt Torres, president of RISE Armament. “We retained the core elements that make our other triggers remarkable and then refined the drop-in trigger system to make the Blitz even easier and faster to install to give customers the best experience possible.”
The Blitz exhibits virtually no creep and a 3.0-3.5-pound pull, according to RISE. It utilizes the company’s Quik-Klik reset to help shooters feel and hear the reset. It delivers minimal overtravel for extremely rapid follow-up shots, according to RISE. Its hybrid trigger blade combines the best aspects of curved and flat trigger, providing comfort, control and speed.
Blitz triggers feature internal parts made from S7 tool steel. They come heavy-hit hardened and finished in black nitride for strength and corrosion resistance. It LiteMite hammer reduces weight while packing a powerful punch, according to RISE. The company’s NoWay Take-Up prevents movement prior to engaging the sear. So trigger movement begins with the pull required to move and actuate the sear to release the hammer.
RISE precision machines the Blitz with handcrafted fine-tuning, then individually inspects each trigger. The aluminum housing adds enhanced durability over punch-tin-style housings. Installation remains simple with no screws to tighten. Additionally, the Blitz includes anti-walk trigger pins for secure installation.
The Blitz fits mil-spec actions, in calibers .223/5.56, .308. 6.5 and 9mm and retails for $199. For more information, visit risearmament.com.
