The Geissele Super 3 Gun (S3G) trigger is a semiautomatic-
only derivative of the two-stage Super
Select-Fire (SSF) combat trigger that Geissele
Automatics produces for customers in the U.S. Special
Operations Community. The S3G was developed to
combine the SSF combat trigger's match-grade semiautomatic
performance with its smooth single-stage
full-automatic feel to make a fast, smooth, and robust
trigger ideal for 3 Gun competition shooting.
The new Geissele Super 3 Gun trigger has a super short trigger
pull and a short reset so that rounds can be sent
downrange as quickly as possible while still maintaining
superb accuracy. The SSF's long, smooth pull was
shortened and combined with a lightning-quick reset to
give it a unique, hybrid trigger pull that is a cross between
a traditional two-stage and single-stage trigger while at
the same time retaining the safety and robustness of the
SSF's two-stage trigger design.
The result is an outstanding, well-balanced trigger that is
ideal for high-volume, accurate fire. An S3G-equipped rifle
enables the shooter to engage targets faster and more
accurately than with any other trigger/rifle combination
available today. Field tests have shown that expert S3G
shooters can routinely and accurately deliver up to twelve
shots on an IDPA target at 7 yards in an amazing 1.9
A description of the S3G pull:
1. The shooter starts pulling the trigger as his sights become
aligned on target.
2. At about 3.5 lbs., the trigger starts to move back
smoothly, like it's on ball bearings.
3. After the trigger moves a short distance, the weapon
discharges. Nothing precedes the discharge: no second
stage stop, no grittiness, no stacking of the trigger pull
weight as the hammer is cammed down like on a stock
AR15 trigger. The trigger finger feels a sensation of walking
along a perfectly flat, glassy-smooth plateau that suddenly
4. After a short overtravel, the trigger is quickly reset when
the shooter slightly relaxes his trigger finger and the next
shot is ready to be fired without having to go back to the
beginning of the trigger pull cycle.
