I have been evaluating Trigger Point Technology’s “Advanced TRAMS” for about a year now and I thought I would update you on what we think. First off, you need to install this on your AR. Seriously! If you run an AR for personal protection, property defense, Law Enforcement or combat hostilities, this is a force multiplier. No BS, It is.
This is a “Fully Integrated Fire Control System” according to Adam Parsley, Manager of the Small Arms Weapon Systems Division at NavSea Warfare Centers, Crane, Indiana at this month’s SOF Show in Florida last week. I’d have to agree. If you are special forces, military, LE, or an individual, (and the prepping community comes to mind,) this will allow you greater flexibility, increased combat efficiency, greater piece of mind, and most importantly, a half second advantage in your gunfight. Even better, for you trigger snobs (Yes, I enjoy and admire a great trigger as well as the next gunman, as my friends say, “I resemble that definition”), Trigger Point now have Geissele triggers integrated as an option!
When you have limited manpower, a small team or just yourself on the overwatch, having a fully integrated fire control system on your trigger allows you unparrelled flexibility for selection of white light, visible pointer, infrared pointer or infrared illumination or whatever you have installed on your rifle Platform. Awkward position, no problem; only one hand available, no problem; less than a one ounce touch, and you have your choice, continue thru with a light trigger pull and you have rounds downrange, on target!
Trigger Point currently as of today has their Advanced TRAMS installed on Special Forces M4 type rifles in combat in Yemen. Battle Testing in the sand makes our evaluation seem insignificant, but to update what we have done: Dragging thru mountainous brushy terrain by the rifle sling while crawling on our stomachs, using our foot to stomp the rifle and the TRAMS into the mud, shooting the same rifle in pounding rain (3” per hour storm) with 25 mph winds, swim tested, and general use and abuse as a school gun with many students trying the platform and technology out. We are pleased. The rifle and Advanced TRAMS, with the Steiner Mk 5 Battle Light, and dBal A3 worked better than expected and I found no flaws, no loss of function, and no loss of zero! Very happy!
You need to evaluate where you are in your preparations and what your needs are in combat. There is no cost considerations when I balance the scales with my life or a loved one’s life. I do not install anything on my weapons unless it gives me an advantage. Period. No Rooney Guns allowed. If it doesn’t give me a tactical advantage it isn’t on one of my weapons. I have several TRAMS. ‘Nuff said.
