anyways.... the only real advantage is more conistant pulls cuz you dont have to worry about lifting one finger to shoot w/ the other.

i dont like the design myself... but i would be curious to see a trigger that pivots on the bottom.

And they were deemed illegal. NPPL is breaking with their history in deeming this legal, and it should eb illegal via their rules because it never necessitates a RELEASE OF FORCE.

It isn't my fault that the "current ruling" is wrong.

Paintball Ace has them for... $119.95 for just the frame if you read it! You can put everything from the stock esp frame into it... and its supposed to work.
I sacrificed 10 mins of my sleep to hurry up and do this real quick, i may reform it tomorrow but thats the brute of it. I looked thru many posts and what I thought was worthy and would contribute was quoted and put in here.

I emailed Camille Baker and they said it would most likely be deemed illegal.

Why do you think they end up being faster? It's BECAUSE THEY RESET YOUR FINGER WITH NONPASSIVE FORCE.

So, I now have an adjustable output tank, RT mag, and a Victory HALO (/looks in closet. Oh, I actually do!). First Noob I see using the rock'n grip is going to taste 34bps of runaway goodness. Because obviously actively returning the trigger is legal.

Enjoy your trigger frame.

(this ignores the precedent set 8 years ago)

I'll see if i can snag the email. Doubt it..

But glad to see you finally emailed them. Even if it is illegal, noobs will still buy it which will stimulate spyders resale and profit for all of us.

magnets and springs are passive return mechaisms. fingers and air cylinders are active in that it is easy to create a condition in which return force is greater than activation force.

I understand where you guys are coming from, and I to wonder why it was not/is not illegal in the NPPL

Fact is fact though; My 2 friends, my brother and myself both witnessed these rockin triggers being used on cockers at hunnington beach, 2004 season. NPPL is usually pretty good at making rule changes notable, I have not come across anything that says anything yet.

I can vividly remeber a conversation between a spectator and one of the osiris guys at hunnington.

"Are these legal though? will NPPL alow them?"

"Actually, yea, we got 2 teams out there that are using them right now. They got spanked. But yea, they're legal for now. NPPL says they may change the rules though because they are so damn fast"

.... u can shoot me later.. but i have to ask.... is reactive illeagel in NPPL??? cuz if its not then y would this be?? its pretty much the same concept.... and if it is illegal, then i can see were ur going with this thing...

.... oh and btw... u all r talking about having 2 switches be leagal, but 2 triggers not?? thats a bit confusing... i think.... what if u rigged up a way *kinda like the rocking trigger* for a regular tigger to hit 2 swithes.... would that be leagal then??? and what do u mean its 2 triggers... if it is... i wanna see u fire them both at once.... its kinda like a see saw, u cant get both sides to hit the ground at the same time..... unless u intend to break it

What about jumping the middle pin of the stock switch with the upper pin? I installed another switch in the grip between the low battery led and the charge port so I can shut the feature off if I want.

I'm getting clost to 20 bps with this thing.
