State of the Art


Designed to be a true drop-in replacement trigger for the AR-15 platform. The WOT is a hard-reset trigger that has been engineered to last and endure repetitive use.

Superb Reliability, With A Patent-Pending Spring Carrier

Easy To Install Plug-n-Play Solution

Most Abrasion-Resistant Metal In The World, HardoxTM Steel

*May work on 9mm and 300BLK with professional installation and tuning but will not work on AR-10s (.308)



The WOT has a patent-pending, spring-locking bar that makes the trigger unique. The trigger’s hammer is reinforced with Hardox steel, which due to its toughness, copes with shocks, jolts, bangs, nicks, and jabs day after day. This material allows the WOT to take the constant beating of the bolt carrier group (BCG) as it cycles back and forth in an AR-15 rifle or pistol.

​​​​​​​The WOT is not capable of being a fully automatic trigger because the hammer is released by the locking bar and hits the firing pin. The firing pin then activates the primer on the brass casing which allows only one bullet to make its way out of the rifle with each pull of the trigger.


The Wide Open Trigger (WOT) is a two-stage, hard-reset trigger that allows the user the ability to shoot faster, while still allowing only one single shot per trigger pull. The trigger is designed to shorten the length and time a trigger needs to reset itself, by using the elastic energy of the patent-pending spring carrier. When compressed, the spring carrier forces the trigger into a neutral or reset position.

True Drop In Trigger


The trigger is designed to fit most AR-15 platforms with a full-auto bolt carrier group (not to be used in ARs using .300BLK or .308).

The WOT is easily installed without the help of a professional gunsmith (although, we always recommend a gunsmith to inspect your firearm). Shooters can now experience the thrill of shooting a hard-reset trigger in their AR-15.*

First, make sure your firearm is unloaded and clear. Move the magazine and ammunition away from your working area.

To Install:

​​​​​​​1.) Remove the upper receiver from the lower receiver.

2.) Gently allow the hammer to go forward after depressing the trigger.

3.) Remove the grip from the lower receiver, along with the safety and the safety pin.
4.) Remove trigger, hammer, and springs.

5.) Replace with the WOT (it will have a snug fit).

6.) Anti-walk pins are included and should be installed on the trigger to avoid malfunctions.
7.) Reinstall the safety pin, spring, and grip.
​​​​​​​8.) Reinstall the upper receiver.
