Well this is interesting! The trigger shoe (AKA the part you put your finger on) on the RMT Triggers Nomad Trigger pivots freely. It rotates (yaws) and it swings left/right. At the same time, it has no rearward creep and provides a nice, crisp, 3-pound break. The idea here is that the trigger accommodates the shooter, rather than the other way around.
Whether it’s adjusting to the shooter due to physical stature or trigger position preference, or it’s adjusting due to shooting from various positions, the concept here appears to be encouraging natural trigger finger positioning.
I got my hands on a Nomad and will follow up with a full review soon. Right off the bat there’s no doubt that it has a clean break and a nice reset. I can also say that the pivoting trigger shoe isn’t a bother and doesn’t screw with my brain (I had some concerns), but I’ve only just started using it and can’t yet say whether I prefer it. TBD.
In the meantime, RMT Triggers’ press release on The Nomad Trigger follows:
RMT Triggers Unveils Flagship Drop-In AR-15 Trigger The Nomad
December 15, 2021 – Ogden Utah – Newcomer in the drop-in AR-15 trigger market, RMT Triggers announces the release of its flagship Nomad Trigger.
The Nomad Trigger offers one-of-a-kind Patented Pivot Technology to provide users with the most forgiving and precise trigger on the market. This new technology allows the trigger to adjust freely to the shooter’s natural position and minimize error through each individual trigger pull. The Nomad Trigger is engineered to move and index correctly every time, allowing the firearm to remain stable through a variety of shooting positions and trigger pulls. In short the trigger freely adjusts to the natural position of the shooter rather than the other way around. Besides the forgiving pivoting nature of the trigger, users will enjoy a very crisp 3lb pull, a short .017” reset and a lifetime warranty.
“Every rifle configuration or body position is going to change the natural position of your trigger finger. Proper training and trigger discipline can minimize this but having a trigger that passively adjusts to your natural flow is much more forgiving. This is especially important when you’re forced to shoot from awkward positions where perfection isn’t possible” said Mike Semanoff Marketing Director RMT Triggers.
The Nomad trigger is constructed from the finest materials found in the industry. The housing and trigger are both of anodized 7075 aluminum with 440c Stainless steel for key internal components, and S7 Tool Steel for maximum durability of the hammer itself. These components are machined to medical grade fit and finish to ensure a smooth, crisp, and consistent pull that you will come to expect every time.
