The other day I ran across a very unique device from Friendsville Precision that was developed specifically to simplify AR dry-fire training. The Dry Fire Device is simply a mechanism to cock the hammer without having to lose focus or break form. Any device that can mitigate the pain of cocking the hammer without having to reach for the charging handle should be welcomed with open arms, and likely will… How can I not be excited?
Not too long ago I wanted to try my hand at a little gunsmithing and upgrade a trigger assembly to an aftermarket competition-grade trigger assembly. I wanted to test the trigger-pull at each step of the way so I could ensure the final result would be as expected. After going through dozens of forums, reviews and blogs, I decided to try Lyman’s Digital Trigger Pull Gauge for myself.
