The Bix’n Andy Trigger – Bullet Central Lineup

The Bix'n Andy Trigger - Bullet Central Lineup

In January Bullet Central went down to Las Vegas, NV for SHOT Show 2017, for four days we talked to customers and launched the brand new Bix’n Andy TacSport trigger, (as well as introduce a few other products). When we got back, we noticed some confusion between the older competition triggers and the new TacSport, so we put together this video.  Watch as Chris Harris explains each Bix’n Andy Trigger and the differences between the competition line up and the new sporting lineup.

We’ve been selling the Bix’n Andy triggers in the United States for the past five years, and were patented by Andy Aztl in Austria back in 2004. Since then they’ve helped shooters achieve world records in rimfire and benchrest competitions.  All Bix’n Andy triggers are machined out from scratch, and have in the past 5 years we’ve been selling them they’ve had relatively no failures. This success to mostly due to their trademark Ball Trigger technology.  In the video you’ll see Chris explain exactly how the ball triggers work, here is a diagram of each part of the single stage trigger.

Bix'n Andy Inside Competition Trigger Balltrigger Mechanism

When the trigger is activated the top sear comes down and rests on the ball bearings.  These balls are capable of supporting a large downward force exerted from the cocking piece once it engages with the top sear. From here the retainer bar breaks away and the balls fall, giving the trigger an extremely fast unlock time.  The method is what allows for such a low reset force.

Trigger Reset refers to the upward force exerted on the top sear after the trigger is let off, you want this low because it puts the least amount of force onto the cocking piece.

To make things easier we have split up the Bix’n Andy Triggers into 2 categories, Competition & Sporting.  The main difference between these is the available trigger force.  The Competition triggers can safely be set down to 1/3 of an ounce and goes up to 2 pounds.  The Sporting triggers can be set as low as 10 ounces and up to 4.5 pounds.  The Competition series is meant for benchrest shooters, or those who want accuracy with the least amount of pull force.  The Sporting series was created because of the increase in requests for a trigger for hunters & tactical shooters that could be set at a higher pull force.

You’ll notice the Competition Series is more expensive than the Sporting Series, this is because currently the Competition triggers have more parts than the Sporting.  Also because The Competition triggers are made with anodized aluminum that brings down their weight, while the Sporting triggers are made with stainless steel.

The Competition Series

Can be set as low as .3 ounces (~10 grams) and as high as 2 pounds (~1 kg).  Made with Anodized Aluminum, and are available for the Tikka, Sako, Blaser, Mauser, & Remington 700 actions.

The first Bix’n Andy triggers were made for the Blaser and the Sako rifle actions, the Bix’n Andy Blaser trigger was ideal because people in Europe love the Blaser receivers but were not fond of the trigger.  So, Bix’n Andy came up with a great solution for the, using the Ball Trigger technology.
