I've heard the term before but I was wondering if anyone can explain what a crisp trigger is.

Or what trigger lag is.

From what I understand, its a trigger pull that has little to no take up, minimal over travel. Feels smooth and slick, not gritty or rough through its movement. And the break of the sear is like the snap of a twig.

This is what it means to me but I'm sure it prob means something different to others.

To me it's not about pre or over travel but rather where/how the trigger itself "breaks". Specifically, I have a G17 with an Ghost Ultimate connector in it and the break is really, really crisp or pronounced. There is still some sponge or pre-travel but once it gets to the breaking point it's like it stops hard then breaks very deliberately. You can really "feel" the break point.

It's hard to describe than it is to actually feel.

Well I think I would more classify "crisp" as a quick clean snapping break, then an instant over travel stop. Like what you are explaining.

Think potato chip. That snap the moment the trigger mechanism releases the striker. As the Don described.

I think of a good 1911 when I think of a crisp trigger! :) From what I've heard (thanks Vol) it can be accomplished with a GLOCk too! :)

I saw this post last night and couldn't come up with a good way to explain it but I think you guys hit on it. Like Vol said, it's a lot harder to say than feel.
