They have life time money back guaranteed. I would return it for refund.

LaRue and several other brands have exactly same construction. They are from the same source I think. I got one from dirty bird for lower price. It wasn't good. It required more than the usual trigger job to make it agreeable. It voided the warranty, but I don't mind.

Sorry to hear about the bad Hiperfire DM. Are they just making too many triggers and letting quality slide?

Just an FYi, Hiperfire's not the company it used to be. My first one years ago (when they were still called EDT1) was GREAT ! The Heavy Gunner I bought a couple of years ago was iffy, didn't feel great but I thought was just dumb luck I got a gritty one. This gritty, and has way too much creep for a Hiperfire.
I'm not writing this to argue you into keeping the EDT, just to relate my experience.

I have six EDTs. Every single one of them has a grittier pull straight from the package than I've ever felt on a GI style trigger. I had to put every one of them into my Larue trigger fixture for a couple of hundred dryfires for it to begin to smooth out. Several of them developed a long smooth pull with a slight hitch at the end just before the break. My oldest one has no hitch before the break, but is very smooth all the way to the break. It may have 10,000 rounds on it.

I tried to accelerate the break in with some sandpaper on one, and it didn't work out. It had a bit of a hitch at the beginning of travel and then travelled so lightly that it didn't have the resistance I wanted. Hiperfire replaced it.

I don't know why Hiperfire sends them out this way, but it gives a customer a terrible first impression. I would think that polishing the two surfaces before packaging and selling them would be a cheap enough way to save buyers the break in.

That's too bad about the new trigger. I don't think my 24C has enough movement to discern a feeling of grit, resistance, etc. With the gray? spring, it measured (at time of install) a hair under 1.5. with both digital / slider scales. It feels the same today after a couple of thousand rounds (.22lr).
