I have an original Kaos Deluxe and have been wondering if it is worth buying KD2 parts for it.
I got it yesterday and out of the box the trigger honestly isn't much different than the ATS trigger. It's a lighter pull, but the ATS is still light enough for me. It feels like with the KD2 you have to actually pull the trigger back farther, rather than earlier like I thought it would be. I tested this by putting a finger behind the triggers and moving it so the gun would shoot when it touched my finger. Not exactly scientific, but I could tell a difference. The KD2 does seem to reset the trigger earlier and the start of the pull is set back more, so the travel is about the same, maybe 2 millimeters less on the KD2. I wasn't expecting a total redesign of the trigger so I'm not bummed. Some post travel slop can be fixed with some easy modding.
I also have a Tippmann 98 to compare it to and, while the 98's trigger is MUCH heavier, it trips the sear within half a centimeter and resets much quicker, too. I did pick up a single trigger for the KD2, which I feel is what it should come with. The KD2 is a real nice gun, I was just interested in what actually changed, rather than marketing talk. The trigger would be absolutely fine to very good in a game. All the upgrades will have it performing much better than a stock ATS and 98, too.
