Okay, let's talk about this. No gun needs this trigger guard. But not everyone needs to drive a BMW or a Lexus. If you have a great AR, then maybe this finely milled aircraft grade aluminum trigger guard is for you. Geissele has machined this trigger guard from 7075-T6 aluminum billet on a 5-axis CNC mill. What does that mean? It means Bll's team in Northerastern Pennsylvania have taken some of the most expensive machinery and used the most expensive aluminum to create - what? A work of art? Probably. What is a 5-axis CNC mill? It is the machine that every owner of a machine shop aspires to own, and Geissele has used it make something totally unnessary, but ultimately awesome. If you like such stuff. Some like pretty basic mil spec, and that is available for 1/10th of the cost of this trigger guard. But, if you are building a BMW or Masserati of a sporting rifle, maybe this is for you.
By employing 5-Axis machining technology the GA team is able to reach every surface of the trigger guard and artfully remove unnecessary material. What this means for the user is they have a smooth, snag-free guard that fills in the irritating 'gap' from the guard to the pistol grip. A side benefit is the part is beautifully finished with facets radiating out from the iconic 'G' logo. The UPTG is the finishing touch you need for your dream rifle build.
