PNT™ Trigger Assembly (Polished – Nickel – Teflon)
BCM quality, modern manufacturing processes, and aerospace
coatings are combined to ensure parts last a lifetime while performing far
beyond requirements established nearly six decades ago.
The BCM PNT™ Trigger and PNT™ Hammer are a precision
machined Mil-Spec AISI8620 investment casting per the USGI TDP (Mil-Spec) for
M16/M4 family of weapons. (not to be confused with MIM parts that are
very common in the commercial market). 156/157 holes are honed to assist
in perfect alignment and a smooth trigger pull.
After that, the BCM PNT™ Trigger and PNT™ Hammer then goes
through a 3 step heat treat and case hardening process for optimal grain
structure alignment, yielding a stronger and more wear resistance product.
The sear engagement surfaces are ground, but then hand
polished for an increased smoothness and reduction in friction up to 300% beyond the Mil-Spec.
An electroless nickel finish is applied for a smoother
trigger pull with less ‘grit’ and reduced felt ‘creep’. Nickel also provides a
long lasting finish that will not corrode, rust, or discolor due to oxidation.
Teflon particles are embedded in the nickel, further
reducing the friction of the interface and ensuring a long lasting coating.
This is done on both the BCM PNT Trigger and Hammer in order to provide the
maximum benefit allowed by the nickel coating, by augmenting the low friction
and corrosion resistance.
This assembly includes our impact resistant trigger and
hammer pins. They are centerless ground to a fine finish and superior
tolerances to ensure compatibility with all MIL SPEC lower receivers built per
the USGI TDP.
The BCM Disconnector is stamped from a 1070 material and fine
blanked for cleaner edges, double disc ground to precise size. All hammer
engagement surfaces are also ground for a super clean reset.
The processes and tolerances are matched in the BCM PNT™
Trigger Assembly to create a system better than the sum of its parts.
As with all BCM products, Made in the USA.
