Hello NES Brain Trust, Skinflint Chapter! Long time lurker here looking for the best deal on a Franklin Armory Binary HK trigger. Any suggestions?
grr, it is little that i hate more than binary triggers... to fire on the release is just, damn, plain wrong. it may have its uses, of course, but, damn.

Radical Firearms 18" .223 Wylde 1:8 S.S. Rifle-Length Barreled Upper - 15" M-LOK RPR Gen3 Rail and BMD Brake on 4th of July sale for 199.99 from PA. I have one of these and at $200 it’s a pretty good deal (still need to get a BCG and charging handle).

Anyone know anything about Radical Firearms? Can't tell if the few reviews I was able to find online were self-styed or good unbiased reports. This upper, if good, would be a good addition to my SPR project.

I’ve been really happy with this exact same upper. I got it on sale back in 2019 for $160, so I didn’t expect a whole lot from it. Teamed it up with an inexpensive Toolcraft Black Nitride BCG and ambi charging handle and put it on one of my 80% lower builds. Shooting .223 match ammo I can get 1 MOA groups out of it (when there is no wind) from the bench. Very reliable, haven’t had any feeding issues. For a $440 build it does quite well.

it is back - get those while in stock at $149 - an AMAZING trigger - for the price. the diamond one listed above is better, but a $100 more.
it works fine in my ar10s as well.

How are these on longevity or long term reliability?

I bought a complete Radical Arms upper with BCG and charging handle for $299 a while back from Primary Arms. Was really more than I expected for the price. I have nothing but great reviews for Primary arms This popped up recently:

$199. Regular $349

I have now 2 diamonds on bolt guns and independents on gas guns. 1.5lb on an ar is pretty light. Independents at 2.5lb feel perfect.
I have several Adaptables on my better AR15/LR308 builds. I find the 2.5-5.0 lbs gives me the ability to get just the right weight for my different builds.
