Made a Custom TM7 Trigger

Alright, nothing too special. I was tired of waiting to get my hands on a Flasc trigger for my BT TM7 and the stock one is just complete crap. It's basically a reverse engineered trigger using the stock trigger that I have and an image of the Flasc. Since the Flasc triggers are so good, I basically was shooting for that design, but with my own little flare. I also was going to make it purely for the spring mod, but decided to add the adjustment screw just in case. Let me know what you think. Please resist flaming though, just starting with this.

Also, Can't decide if I want to paint it or not, opinions? If I were to anodize it, it wouldn't be this trigger, this was just a test.

If I get free time I might make another and possibly use a shaft bearing for an even smoother trigger pull.

Can I double post this in the Empire BT section? wasn't sure if there would be one group that cared more than the other.

Did you do the mill work yourself?

Yup, i did the design and milling. if I make another, i might be a bit more ambitious and try some 3D milling on the trigger face. I've used it a bit now and it feels 20x better than BT's joke of a trigger.

And I might make a few if there is interest but only till Flasc gets back up and running. I don't have any interest in taking away business from a small paintball company that treats their customers right.

Thanks for the positive feedback on it. This is my first project like this

Versions 2.1.1 and 2.1.2

I was Playing around with Creo /Pro E and ended convincing myself to make an updated version. The main differences are added milling to the side of the trigger and maybe a modified milling on the back. I decided to leave the face smooth. also not doing 3d machining yet either . The last thing was I sized the hole for a shaft bearing to make ASAP (as smooth as possible)
So, here are the renderings


I think I like the 1st one more

Thanks for the positive feedback gents. I'm waiting for some shaft bearings to come in to test out the new trigger. Once i get everything worked out, I might make about 10 or so to sell. I don't have the supplies to anno myself but I do want to anno mine at least. Can't imagine it would cost much more to do a batch of a dozen while I'm at it. If you're interested, just shoot me a PM and subscribe. I'll try to keep this thread updated.

I've made another prototype, this time with the bearing. I've found that the shaft bearing didn't really make any difference surprisingly. Not quite sure why, I was expecting a noticable improvement.

I also decided against the shown side milling, it would probably be rough on the fingers. Still thinking of an alternative design.

Finally had some extra time, here are the newer versions. They still need to be finished, but the design is there. The design has been redone to be easy on the fingers.

There will be a select few for sale. 4 or 5. All that's left is they need to get anno'd.

For those who are still interested in this project, A quick update.
I'm sending the triggers out to get anno'd this week. This is what they look like before the black anno. I tried a few different styles

As soon as I get my crap together. I have the triggers done, they've been tested and modified accordingly. I need to go down the list of people who PMd me and see who is still interested. I also wanted to try making some trigger guards for anyone that doesn't have them (for a fee). Schoolwork and thesis has hindered progress recently.
