    If you had one of those ar-15 echo triggers, but was thinking about putting it in something different, what else comes to mind? I saw someone manage to get one to work in an mg42 on YouTube. That’s what got me thinking.

    I haven’t seen anything, but I have certainly thought about it.

    While not a "true" AR, the S&W M&P 22 takes the AR trigger. A friend of mine is currently building a semi auto Thompson that fires from the closed bolt. It will use the AR trigger group.

    I think the new versions of the grandpower stribog use the ar trigger.

    And there appears to be an m1919 mod to use the trigger.

    I’m not sure what the objective is here? You have an AR trigger and want to stick a rifle on it, but don’t want an AR? In the scheme of things, a great AR trigger still isn’t really a very good trigger by conventional standards, so I’m not sure I understand the point.

    He wants something else to use one of the echo triggers. Fires when pulling the trigger, and again when releasing the trigger.

    We had a single-shot research gun built that used an AR platform hammer and trigger assembly.
