Wide Open Trigger

Okay, this is core Charlie's products.  Not military correct.  Nothing collector value.  Not clone rifles.  But, every now and then, we find something unique and cannot resist.  The manufacturer of the WOT has created something fun. No way is this a precision trigger.  But for wide open plinking, you might be interested.

So, what does the manufacturer have to say about the WOT?  Here it is:

The Wide Open Trigger (WOT) is the world's first hard-reset trigger designed for AR-15 platforms chambered in .223/5.56.*

Designed as a true “plug-and-play” drop-in replacement trigger, the WOT is easily installed without the help of a professional gunsmith.

Featuring Hardox™, the world's most abrasion-resistant steel, the WOT is designed to last for the life of your firearm and endure repetitive use. The WOT is suitable for tactical, competitive, or recreational use. Unlike other triggers, the WOT delivers an exceptionally smooth, crisp, creep-free trigger pull. No gunsmithing, fitting, or adjusting is required. Just drop it in and go! Even better? It’s made to resist the wear and tear that other triggers can’t live up to. Pin walkout? Nope! It’s not an issue with our proprietary design that uses a patent-pending spring carrier and comes with anti-walk pins. Shoot hundreds of rounds? Thousands of rounds? Don’t make us laugh.

The WOT will take whatever you dish out and then some. Go ahead. Try it and see!


State-of-the art "Hard Reset Trigger"

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

**Manufacturer recommends using a qualified gunsmith if the WOT is installed in AR-15 platforms not chambered in .223/5.56.


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.

Note:  Manufacturer is offering this trigger as a semi-automatic trigger for the AR15 platform.  Offer to sell void where prohibited by law.

The ATF has taken certain enforcement and classification actions against other trigger manufacturers to challenge the status of other triggers with similar designs.  It is possible that the ATF could classify this trigger as something other than a semi-automatic trigger in the future, and if successful, a change in classification could result in the requirement of owners of triggers which are no longer classified as semi-automatic triggers having to register their triggers under the NFA, or having to surrender or destroy their triggers.  While Charlie's see that as unlikely, the buyer should be aware of the risk, and Charlie's would not refund or accept returns of triggers which are considered something other than what the manufacturer is advertising.  The buyer assumes all risk of loss, in the even of such a reclassification.
