Question

I'm about to buy an Autococker, as some of you may know (BTW - thanks for the great help on my last thread). I was looking at the Benchmark frame as another upgrade I might get - is it hard to install? I see it doesn't come with a trigger, or anything for that matter, so could I just take the internals (including the safety) out of the stock frame and put them in the Benchmark? Thanks to all who reply.

You are right on. You just take out the stuff from your old trigger frame and put it in the benchmark. You could also buy new springs or a new trigger plate also.
It is simple to attatch. Just take off your old one. Removing the old internals if you want. Then put the old or new internals into the benchmark and reattach it.
Then put on some nice grips, houge wrap arounds or some dye stickies.

Leave the safety out. It makes for a better pull. Just use a barrel plug. You should be doing that anyway.

Leaving the safety out will mean that he can't play at some rec ball fields and in some tourneys. Depending on how close they inspect the gun.
Just leave the safety in and if you are worried about your trigger pull, get a 3-way, ram, polish your internals, trigger job.

Ok - to start off, I do use a barrel plug.

I've heard that the safety hinders the trigger, but I still don't understand as to how it does - can someone explain please?

I don't really have to worry about the safety, because the fields I go to don't really care as long as I have a barrel plug...I just like to play it safe.

for my cocker, i had to take the safty out because it was loose and would stop the trigger. Very annoying. Triggers are easy to work with, getting a new trigger frame on is an easy upgrade.

The only thing I could thing of is that the trigger plate would rub against the safety.

buy a 2-set screw trigger frameif you have a 98 or older trigger plate, and if you want a 3-set screw trigger frame if you want to spend 15 bucks on a pre-97 trigger plate.

Not allowing a Cocker in a tourney 'cause it doesn't have a Safety? Hmm. *Shrugs.* A majority of Cocker users I've heard from who've upgraded their trigger frames leave the safeties out... hmm. Guess you just want to check with local rules.

Safety doesn't do much, I don't think. The way my gun is timed now, with the firing 1/3 into the pull and cocking 2/3 into it... the safety doesn't stop the trigger before it shoots.

___________________________

All free flows, shocktechs, Revenges, and Dark Cockers do not come safeties. All high dollar cockers don't come with safeties. Now all these guns are allowed in all national and international tournies which usually have the most marker limitations. So I think that you probably made that up. Show me, in a internet site, a tourney that won't let certain guns play 'cause they don't have safeties.

OK, most rec ball fields don't let you play, I couldn't even play without a trigger guard. I said some tournies not all.

All tournies and most fields require trigger guards, but I've NEVER heard of anywhere that won't let you play because you don't have a safety.

A trigger guard is much different than a safety. All tournies and most rec feilds require you to have a trigger guard. That is much different than a safety.
