Question Trigger Pin

Looking to replace the trigger pin in my axe, simply because I hate using a hammer on a paintball gun. Just doesn't feel right.

Which one do you guys prefer? They all seem to be right around the same price point, just wanted opinions.

Thanks in advance!

If the pin is all your ordering then go with the element one from their website because it is shipped free. I prefer the style of the violent series, but I haven't found a place to buy it with free shipping.

The Element trigger pin is awesome, I have one and it works great. Just make sure to put a bit of blue loc-tite on the threads when you're screwing the two halves together.

I have it too. Def a needed upgrade. Mine was a little tough to get in at first but it's all good now.

Heck I had my frame replaced and still haven't got my stock trigger out of my original frame. And I have pounded the heck out of that thing.

LMK which one you prefer. The violent pin slides all the way through with only a small cap screw on one side, the element joins in the middle so installing the trigger takes a second longer. Both do the job fine.

Edit: I have decided I REALLY don't like the element pins. I had to still tap it out with a punch because it fits the trigger bearing so tight. I ordered a couple of new violent pins and will be getting rid of the elements when they arrive.

I got them both in, and I prefer the violent. It's easier to install, remove, and doesn't bind on the bearings.

What are the pros of an upgraded trigger pin (Violent)? Is it necessary?

the only pros are that it wont take long to get out since you wont have to use a punch and a mallet, and also it wont damage your grip frame by a clumsy mistake.

Its easier to remove the trigger and you dont have to use a punch and a hammer, or press to get the pin out. I have the Violent pin. Its nice and it matches the other screws on the gun, if that matters.

So when do you guys find yourself taking it out so often that you need to upgrade the pin?

I haven't taken apart my gun yet (just got it), but it doesn't seem that the trigger pin needs to be taken out at all unless you are changing the trigger?

Violent hands down, even if you have to pay extra for shipping. The Element pin is just cheap compared to the Violent.

And these things are also perfect for when you're setting you're actuation point of the trigger.

Still wondering why I'd need one. Haha, trying to find a reason to make me buy one.

The Violent trigger I bought for my Mini came with the Violent trigger pin. I assume their Axe triggers are the same. It's like you get the trigger for $25 and the pin for $10. You could then sell the NIB trigger if ya didn't want it. That's a good reason to buy the pin and get to try a different trigger.

it was worth it to me to spend $10 for a removable pin, than accidentally hit my frame with a hammer/punch and be out the $80 to replace it.

This. Plus like others I like being able to clean the trigger area. I am very anal about the trigger pull too and like to adjust the activation point easily. Violent charges like $3 to ship them and think it's worth the extra money, because like I said... I still have to use a straight pick to pop the element one out. (Not anymore because I replaced them both with violent.)

Either pin is worth not taking a hammer to your axe.
