Timmy Owners: What would you like in a trigger?

Alright, as timmy owners, who would be interested in medium cost, handmade Delrin roller-bearing triggers?

Im trying to gauge opinions and feedback on what people would look for in a Delrin Acetal trigger, with a rollerbearing. The Delrin Acetal resists absorbtion, wont warp, or swell. It is VERY light weight, and strong. The roller bearings would be sealed to prevent dust, paint, and shell from interfering with the trigger motion.

They would be white and black in color, with standard set screw adjustment. Unlike carbon fiber triggers, which also have their advantages and disadvantages, one being cost, they will not need any special finishes or, as with carbon fiber, under certain wear, flake off and cause painful splinters.


The first run of these triggers would be 10 triggers, 5 "scythe" style, and 5 Double finger style. Please gimme some feedback on what style you would like, examples are very helpful. There wouldnt be a long waiting period once you order your trigger, only items sold would be those already made. Pricing would be in the $30 range, shipped.

Please share some feedback on what you would think it would take to make a great trigger under these guidelines.

Thanks,
-Rob.

i'd like to see a scythe techna style, with the beveled edges, instead of the flat corners. I don't feel like spending 35-40 for a ndz or cp scythe, and hey, custom's are nice.

You're joking, right? If not, you must have bought one of the old models (Stick and Swoop).

The new models (Rake and Slingblade) are incredibly light for aluminum.

Electra, i would def. help you out with this, seems like we're semi local and could get a trigger fastest from you. Also can help with any other aspect like promotion and what not.
