Etek 4 Trigger Question

So I have an etek 4, and I don't like the trigger on it. I've messed around with the return, etc, and just don't like the feel of the trigger.

I know that the Violent triggers were popular for the etek 3, but was wondering if anyone knew of any other triggers that fit the etek3 or 4?

I have the same dilemma with my Etek 4. I belive the Violent Trigger will work for our guns as well.

I felt the same way about the trigger when i first got it.. There is a little play from side to side which i didnt like at all. If that is the reason you want to get another trigger ive heard that the violent trigger will still have play from side to side. (again, only what i heard)..

Also,
I spent prob a little under an hour messing with the trigger before i got it perfect for me. Im not sure what took so long but i finally got it to the perfect point.

Maybe try playing with the trigger a little longer cause there was a couple of time that i thought i had it good but, after playing with it long got it much better. and honestly you dont even noticed it at ALL while playing, only on the couch without paint and air..

I think this is completely hilarious.

Unless you get a different shape, the Violent trigger is just a delrin version of the stock trigger.

No. I wish they did though, otherwise I'd have one on every non-PE gun I ever own.

I may have to use something on the trigger to mold it to a shape I prefer...

I just learned something with this. I have researched into them and never paid a bit of attention that they were delrin.

I had the same problem. Spent hours tinkering and adjusting the trigger. Could never get the return as smooth as I wanted.

So I pulled the magnet and it's pretty much perfect!

i got a violent and it has 0 play from side to side...that was one of my big peeves, too. it's the nicest trigger I've ever shot (admittedly I've never shot a very hight end gun).

I ****ed up the magnet the first time I used it, I wasnt careful while adjusting it and the magnet moved out of place, a professional technician is taking care of it right now

also if you hate the stock trigger, take the magnets out. Its much better w/o magnets, but what I like you may not like.

I found this post helpful. I like a trigger with more tension. I didn't like the feel of my etek 4 trigger at first, but after messing around with it a little it suits me better.
