yeah

the best switches I've found were from microsoft mouses.

I guess they did one thing right ;-)

The switches have a more solid click to them and are shorter in actuation length.

I've run them in a few guns and on bushies and other markers.

of course

of course I mean to find a broken / worn out mouse.

I've bought micro switches and had mixed results.

Goldie at Vapor may have a good source if he is willing to share.

afew

Hey afewloosescrews:

What gun do you have? If it's a bushy how which version?

What seems to make for a higher rate of fire and easier shooting is a switch with a slightly heavier feel to it so you aren't pulling on the spring as much. You can use a lighter spring that way.

That sounded weird, hope it makes sense.

I have a 2k3 Bushy with PDS. Yeah that makes sense, but I would like to experiment with lighter switches then I can tune the weight of the pull more with the spring. Right now I have my spring screw turned almost all the way out.
