Good trigger for DM7?

So I have been using the stock Dm7 trigger for a while now and I thought I would never have to upgrade it, well after holding a NT
I realized I was wrong. I heard the NT trigger is very similar to the Ironmen Blade trigger and was thinking about getting that one,
but then I also noticed that Critical makes a trigger for the DM series. So now I'm stuck between the two. Anyone have experience
with aftermarket UL triggers that can give me their input?

My favorite is the Violent Products trigger, Critical is also good. Ironmen trigger is the same as a Dye reach trigger with a different shape.

Now that you mention that the Violent Series Trauma trigger looks very similar to the Ironmen Blade Trigger. The Ironmen Trigger is $10 cheaper so I may go with that one.

VP trigger comes with flanged bearings so it won't rub against the inside of the frame, some Dye triggers rub a bit or have a little side play. Neither are bad though.

the nt trigger IS the ironmen trigger..

critical makes a beast of a trigger as well.

imo i would only go with critical or irnmn trigger, both of them are going to rip.

It depresses me how many people buy the reach trigger and adjust it so it is identical to the stock trigger.

Oh that's a negatory.
I adjust that thing out between stock and the first Billy Wing/Ironman trigger.

In that case I'm going to go with the Ironmen Trigger. Why? 1.) Price (cheap). 2.) Because I have already used the NT trigger and since the NT = Ironmen, I already have used it.

Thanks for the Input guys! You can still recommend suggestions to help other people if you want.

IM trigger or the VP trigger are best best. Both are the nicest feeling triggers I have used.

imo, critical has too much moving mass.

VP or ironmen trigger is the way to go.
VP, very light, but no activation point/trigger angle adjustment.
IM, will have some side to side play, but has all the adjustments you need.

just wondering for anyone whos used both, does the ironmen trigger in a earlier dm feel the same as the NT. i heard there are like these pins that are a little different in the activation screws for an NT, and just wondering if it would feel different.

the ironmen trigger that comes stock with the NT is not the exact same as the one that comes with the DM10 and sold seperately.
the triggers both have the same adjustments and pretty much the same face, but the geometry of the pivot points is different. if i remember right, the NT has the trigger mounted a bit further away from the frame.

I'm generally a big fan of Critical triggers - I've also had a number of them for a selection of different markers, and have seldom been disappointed (the DM5 trigger takes up too much space in the trigger guard, and the '06 Ego trigger is a little too narrow and so can slide from side to side on the trigger pin - nothing some thin shims can't fix).

Very smooth bearings, firing point activation adjustment, and the magnetic return that I prefer over a spring.

My second choice would for the VP.

Having said that, while I don't much like the feel of it, I actually find the stock trigger easy to pull fast.

After having had the Violent, Critical and Ironman Reach on my M7s (have an UL PM7 SE and DM7) my favorites are:

Ironman Reach without spring
Critical
Ironman Reach with spring
Violent
Stock without spring
Stock with spring

i like my critical better than the ironmen trigger, in my opinion it feels much smoother and its more comfortable to walk, it also has a lot of adjustability, u should pick the critical

Violent trigger is the best trigger for a dm. IM trigger is second.
