I don't understand why Ruger just doesn't put these triggers into their higher end line of AR's and 10/22's right out of the box? There are a lot of shooters that would be more than happy to pay the extra money to have a factory installed improved trigger. It's one of the first things many shooters change out on a new weapon.

If you look at the added cost of the Target 10/22 models, over the standard "Wal-Mart versions", a few extra bucks for a good, target trigger wouldn't be a game changer. Same with their higher end AR's. Their top of the line AR's are quite expensive as it is. Especially in the .308 models. A few bucks more for a great trigger would be a welcome expense for most shooters considering one of these models. Especially shooters who are not gunsmith savvy, but who would appreciate a really nice trigger.

I"m pretty sure you don't get the pistol grip assembly with the trigger, I think it was just a cut away to show the trigger assembly in place.

"Packaged with an ergonomic, optimized trigger-reach, polymer pistol grip, the Ruger® Elite 452™ is shipped fully assembled in a polymer fire control housing which allows the trigger to be dry-fired prior to installation, and the assembly can also serve as a trigger manipulation training tool."

Okay, $160 is good.   There are other quality triggers in the $150-180 range though.   And just jump a  bit more to ~$240 to get drop-ins like Timney.

However, for someone doing their first build the idea of having a "demonstrator" and having the Ruger name, might make this a rather hot seller.

I stand corrected,I wonder how much cheaper it would be without the housing?

American Rifleman says this:

The assembly also includes the hammer and trigger pins, a safety lever, a Ruger logo AR grip, and a grip mounting screw, all of which can be installed in most mil-spec AR lowers.
