Change in SR-762 OEM trigger?

Hey everyone. I was looking at Shopruger.com and one of the reviews for the Elite trigger says that his new SR-762 CAME with the new aftermarket Ruger Elite trigger already installed! Can anyone confirm or deny this? Also, did Ruger change the trigger assembly to improve it? My SR-762's stock trigger is nowhere near as bad as some of the comments I see. Not even close. I know people are more likely to comment on bad guns than good ones, so yeah that factors in but I'm not experiencing the trigger complaints I see at all.

Yes, the SR-762 now comes with the Elite 452 (4.5#, 2 stage) trigger. Ruger also changed the SR-762's stock, grip, and barrel steel.

I just followed the links and I see the new stock, grip, trigger, and barrel steel. I think it would be possible to upgrade all those easily except the barrel of course, except I'm ok with mine the way it came. Maybe there was some variability in the quality of the first trigger group sets? Then again the Elite set isn't THAT expensive......

If you want an outstanding single stage trigger at a good price, go for CMC.

Best trigger I have ever seen. Have put them in several of my rifles.

No creep, incredibly crisp break.

I may invest in a CMC trigger or the Ruger Elite, but after viewing the changes Ruger made to the new SR-762's I think my first purchase will be a new Magpul MOE+ grip. I have generally liked Hogue grips on my handguns, but I think I would prefer a non-finger grooved grip on my rifle.

About the new SR762

Sorry if this seems like a stupid question, but how can I make sure when looking at an SR762 at a gun store that I am looking at the a new (upgraded) SR762 and not the older version (without the new upgrades). How can I tell the difference just by looking at it? For what understand the barrel (metal) and the trigger were upgraded and I don't know if the differences can be "seen". Thanks

Well I think they changed the grip and the stock at the same time so theoretically those would be easily seen give-aways. Others will have to confirm this, like I said mine is a first gen rifle.

Well, not exactly. I bought mine in April 2016 and downloaded the spec sheet from the Ruger web site at that time. It still showed the Hogue grip and original six position stock but it stated that the rifle came with the 452 trigger. I called Ruger CS and gave them my serial number and asked if mine had the 452 trigger. The answer was "most likely it does". Hard to tell by looking at it but the hammer looks to have some weight relief to it. If you took a cross section through it it looks like an I beam. Sure is smooth though and breaks real clean. Not like a Mil Spec.

Very interesting! Your rifle must be very early in the change then. I'm leaning towards trying the 452 trigger, I've read enough good things about it in forums I trust that I think it's a worthwhile upgrade. And THEN maybe a new grip and that Magpul stock..........

Magpul grip and MOE butt stock. If you can check the trigger, then just dry
fire it. Very nice. I like the trigger so much I bought the 452 kit for my AR15 that had a mil-spec trigger. Love it. Very light and more like 3.5lbs than the 4-4.5 lbs advertised.
