In our SHOT Show
daily review, we posted a picture of the little E-Z Pull
trigger assist device that we ran across one day while looking
at the multitude of new, and sometimes interesting, products.
The E-Z Pull falls into the interesting category, and a couple
of days ago, a sample unit arrived here at Gunblast World
Headquarters for review.
The E-Z Pull is best described as an extra
trigger blade that attaches to the trigger guard on many rifles,
and through the science of compound leverage, lessens greatly
the felt pull weight of the trigger. While most rifles have the
inherent capability of shooting accurately, their practical
accuracy is hampered by a lousy, heavy trigger pull. I canít
do very good accuracy work using a rifle with a heavy pull, and
rifles that have good trigger pulls, like the newer Savage
rifles with the AccuTrigger,
make shooting small groups on target much easier.
Some of the worst factory triggers are on AR-15
rifles. While you can buy an AR-15 with an excellent trigger,
most come supplied with standard military-spec triggers with
pull weights measuring between six and nine pounds. That is
probably just fine for clearing out a room in downtown Baghdad,
but for hunting or target shooting, it is not acceptable.
Changing out an AR trigger for a match-grade unit is rather
expensive, so I was anxious to see if the E-Z Pull would make a
difference on an AR that needed help. Fitting the E-Z Pull to
the AR trigger guard took about four minutes, and involves the
use of the supplied Allen wrench and a small-bladed slot-head
screwdriver. Installation was simple and easy, and in no way
alters the weapon. The E-Z Pull lowered the trigger pull on the
AR from about six and one-quarter pounds to just over two pounds
and two ounces. That is a dramatic reduction in felt trigger
pull! The E-Z Pull can be used on most bolt-action, single shot
(but not the Ruger Number 1), pump, and semi-auto rifles.
The E-Z Pull is made in the USA and machined
from aluminum. At the time of this writing it sells for just
under 40 bucks. To locate a dealer near you or for ordering
