West Coast Gunworks: Insidious Trigger

Insidious is a new aftermarket brand designed by West Coast Gun Works in Stanton, California. West Coast Gun Works is known for their exceptional gun restoration work as well as custom work ranging from AK's to Hi-Power rebuilds. After building a cult following for some of their detailed work, they decided to launch a line of aftermarket products under the umbrella, Insidious.

The first offering from Insidious is a trigger slated for release this August. It has been 2 years of development, with WCG consulting closely with SMEs (Subject Matter Experts) in law enforcement, tactical training and sport shooting. From the looks of it, Insidious has built something truly different, something that offers advantages other triggers in the aftermarket do not — or at least not as well.

The main difference in their trigger is reduced reset. To enable a quicker reset, they had to take away some of the travel. They've evidently accomplished this, as multiple testers noted the trigger's lack of a “mushy” feel, advising it allowed for quicker follow up shots. Based partly upon SME feedback and initial demand, the decision was made to make his inaugural venture a flat trigger. However, assuming there is a demand for it, they will release a curved version in the nearfuture.

The WCG Insidious trigger kit comes with a trigger bar, connector and will be available only in black. However, you have the option of sending in your firearm to be fitted with the trigger and choosing a different color (Type 3 Anodized for durability). However, wait times will apply. Note that this would have the additional benefit of tuning the trigger to your specific firearm for a more solid fit.

Insidious has examined and utilized many different triggers on the market, enabling them to engage in lots of comparison field testing as well as conducting detailed contrast studies from a gunsmith's perspective.
