    TRIGGER ENHANCEMENT PAD (T.E.P.) pros/cons

    Thoughts on the TEP. Pros and cons.

    My take would improve finger contact
    While widening it risking accidental foreign body contact.

    Just another thing to come loose and fall off. Maybe on a precision range toy, but not on a carbine you depend on for personal defense.

    Seems like another unneccesary marketing ploy to me.

    Trigger shoes were popular with some revolver shooters back in the day. They approximated the wide target triggers that were available from S&W in some of their models (unsure of others such as Colt and Ruger).

    The problem in use is that they would sometimes loosen and slide down, rendering the trigger inoperable. Bad juju on a police duty revolver and most agencies didn't allow them.

    I wouldn't have one on my rifle.

    My buddy had one on a heavy barreled Win. M70. I always thought it was kind of weird. To each their own I guess.

    I would avoid things like that like a plague. IMHO, this is pure marketing and nothing else.

    I posted this before, and I'm going to post it again:

    There is a myriad of various good triggers on the market right now with different profiles. If you want something wider than a regular trigger I heard that LaRue MBT (at $80) has a slightly wider profile than Mil-Spec. LaRue, Geissele and other brands offer flat, slightly curved (Geissele Super TRICON), and classic curved triggers. I'm 100% positive that anyone can find something they like.

    Besides, AR is although fully capable, but not a super precision platform nonetheless. Leave adjustable triggers and fancy trigger mods for the competition bolt guns and professionals who know what they are doing.

    A dated, but accurate discussion of trigger shoes on revolvers; https://www.defensivecarry.com/forum...-shoe-bad.html

    A fairly hot topic decades ago.

    Looks like unnecessary bling for an AR. With good triggers being like 5# pull weight, how much finger contact do you need?

    I second this motion.
