‘Zero Stage’ Electronic Trigger From MDT — SHOT Show 2023 By: Riley Baxter

MSRP is $499.

MDT has an amazing new trigger called the Zero Stage Trigger, but don’t get too excited yet because you can’t get one until next year.

I say this tongue-in-cheek, but this seems to be an item that is worth waiting for. This electronic trigger could make you a better shooter because it can track information about your trigger pull.

For example, it can take measurements such as the sideways pressure that you are putting on the trigger shoe and the amount of weight that you used to pull the trigger.

You can then take this information as constructive criticism to improve your technique. There are also accelerometers that will detect when the rifle is dropped, preventing an accidental discharge.

The USB-C rechargeable Zero Stage Trigger has a port on the bottom that is accessible to recharge the trigger while it is in the gun.

The Zero Stage Trigger currently has a declared 1,000 pulls per charge, but at SHOT, it lasted 2,000 pulls before being charged.

When it’s finally released in a year or so, MDT plans to have that number increased to 3,000 pulls per charge. This is amazing, considering that a barrel is typically only expected to last about 2500-3000 shots.

Basically, you can charge your trigger every time you change your barrel. Many of you readers will probably never fire 3,000 rounds out of your gun, to be realistic.

The Zero Stage Trigger has a projected MSRP of $499.00 which makes it the most expensive trigger that I am aware of. This trigger is designed and made for professional shooters and may be the best product for them to use in order to win matches.

The trigger that I used today was set for 5 oz and it felt much better than I expected. There is no take-up!

In fact, if you pressed your finger against the back of your trigger guard instead of the trigger, this is what using the Zero Stage Trigger feels like. It may sound strange, but I am a big fan of what I felt. There is no anticipation in reaching the back wall of the trigger and I could focus more on keeping my trigger pull straight while smoothly increasing pressure.
