Briley trigger group exceeded my expectations

Recommended Posts

I want to say thank you to StrangerDanger for helping me prematurely, creatively spending my retirement money early on my Benelli M4LE. haha After seeing his H20 post with pictures my spending Journey Begins.

Approximately 20 years ago I purchased this Benelli M4LE along with a Heckler & Koch Benelli M3 from an HK Forum member. Until recently it's just been sitting in the back of the safe behine

most of my favorite HK Auto toys i collected back in the early 80s when full auto toys were cheap. Well that's changed. I just recently decided I'm going to use the M4 in the three gun shoot I participate in once a month as a newbie. After speaking to strangerDanger I decided to take some advice on a few accessories. Limbsaver butt pad, Daves Metal Works safety ,FFT carrier release , and a A & E trigger housing along with a Briley Match Trigger ( Thank you Gary ). Still waiting on a FFT upper rail. Good news they emailed me yesterday and said they are in production. Oh yeah and also due to StrangerDanger's addicting H2O gun porn post it looks like its off to Robar's for a Np3+ treatment. In my case its not just about functionality but most of all the COOL FACTOR. Before sending the trigger group off to Briley my trigger Pull was a horrible 8 + lb. Trigger came back today at a little less than 4 & 1/2 pounds and a unbelievable crisp break & almost 0 travel. Briley's customer service was wonderful & a special thanks to Gary i spoke to a few times.From the day I mailed it out Priority Mail to getting it back Priority Mail was two weeks Unbelievable. I'm an Extremely Happy Briley customer. I'll give you all an update after shooting this weekend.

That's great to here. So far every person that I've spoke to has said only positive things about their triggers. This 3-gun stuff is all new to me especially shooting accurately. I've always just been used to selecting (when negotiations fail) on the trigger pack pulling the trigger and hoping they all go forward. I've just found if there's enough bullets going down range I usually hit something.

This seems to be the approach of some shooters. I call it "using statistics" to hit stuff. :)

Thanks for the shout out, glad to hear you got the trigger weight down. You'll want to buy some Brian Enos' Slide Glide, the standard weight to apply to the sear contact points on your trigger. It'll keep the pull smooth and grit free. The grease goes a long way so not much is needed. It's tacky, so it stays where you put it.

 

Are you going to have the Briley trigger plated in NP3? I'd ask Briley what they think about it if so. I'd hate for it to change your trigger pull.

 

A guy I know is looking at sending his factory H2O M4 to Salient. The TiNi the carrier and a few other parts, the Briley trigger set will match up with it nicely. After it goes to Salient, it's going to Robar for NP3 finish on select parts.

As the spending continues.Thanks a lot strangerDanger. I did get the slide glide standard off Amazon so I will be using that per your recommendation. Also I'm ordering a scalarworks( there notify me )

mount along with a RMR 3.25 Moa. Although I thought my Leupold red dot was fine until I saw the RMR on your project. I think I've decided before I send it off for a NP3+ refinish I'm going to run a few 3 gun matches with it the way it is to be sure this is exactly what I want although it will probably be the coolest shotgun out there except in open class where these guys are running tromax build shotguns with 20 round drums. I think I'm going to do a little bit of color scheme with the mount and RMR as black I'd like to get the trigger black and a few other miscellaneous parts black as an offset against the NP3+ finish. And just so you know strangerDanger I think I'm going to spend more on this Benelli build then I did on 3 HK full auto builds with Fleming Sears in 1981. I think I might even throw in one Colt M-16 in that equation.:o

I am wanting to send my trigger group to these guys; however, the communication takes a very long time and it just makes a little apprehensive.

My question is, does this trigger group fix hammer follow?

 

Test this by: pulling the benelli m4 charging handle and bolt back (after verifying that the weapon is empty!) to fully cock the hammer. Let the bolt fully close and lock (or not), and then pull it back to just before the bolt turns into the extension (as though you are trying to fire it out of battery). See if the trigger can be pulled.

 

That is my one real gripe about this fire control system. Too fast on the trigger, and you get a live round in the pipe and a dead trigger, because the bolt shroud blocks hammer to prevent OOB ignition, instead of the disconnector simply preventing the trigger from being prematurely pulled.
