New Gear: RISE Introduces Patriot High-Performance Trigger

A portion of every Patriot High-Performance Trigger sold is donated to Folds of Honor.

How RISE's new trigger is on target:

  • It is a single-stage drop-in trigger group with a feather-light 3.5-pound break and extremely short reset.
  • The straight trigger blade enhances shooter control and adds to a lighter-feeling pull weight.
  • An EXO nickel boron coating on interior parts reduces friction on contact surfaces.
  • The housing is bright red 8625 hardcoat anodized aluminum with an American flag and the Folds of Honor logo.
  • Included with the trigger is commemorative challenge coin with Folds of Honor on one side and RISE Armament on the other.

Study RISE Armament for any amount of time and you’ll find the Oklahoma company has an obsession — triggers. From the gunmaker’s standpoint, the entirety of a rifle — its performance, accuracy, dependability — all hinge off this one little feature. RISE’s preoccupation with triggers runs so deep they even designed a gun — the 1121XR Precision Rifle — around the company's RA-535 Advanced Performance Trigger.


Memorial Day weekend RISE will release its latest precision trigger, fittingly named the Patriot High-Performance Trigger. And more than just sporting a red, white and blue finish, the upgrade shoots to go the extra mile in supporting veterans and their families. A portion of each sale of the Patriot High-Performance Trigger goes to Folds of Honor, which provides educational scholarships to the children and spouses of those who were killed or disabled while serving our nation.

“Saying we’re proud to help out and donate to Folds of Honor is an understatement,” says Matt Torres, president of RISE Armament. “Veterans’ families are often overlooked, which is really a shame. Our troops and their families have tremendous courage and have made so many sacrifices. It’s our duty as Americans, as patriots, to take care of them and honor what they’ve done for us all.”

The Patriot High-Performance Trigger itself sports some pretty impressive specs. The single-stage drop-in trigger group has a feather-light 3.5-pound break and extremely short reset, aiding both accuracy and rate of fire. Furthermore, it boasts a straight trigger blade for enhanced shooter control, as well as adding to a lighter-feeling pull weight.

The Patriot has a premium EXO nickel boron coating on interior parts for reduced friction and smoother contact surfaces. Additionally, it features a bright red 8625 hard coat anodized aluminum cassette housing with an American flag design and the Folds of Honor logo. Topping it off, it includes a commemorative challenge coin, which features Folds of Honor on one side and RISE Armament on the other.

The trigger is sold with free anti-walk pins and wrenches for installation and fits .223/5.56 and .308 AR-style platforms with Mil-Spec dimensions. Rise did not release the Patriot High-Performance Trigger’s MSRP.
