Besides price and having the intelli switch that is really only used with hopper that is set up for it, not much. Bechy you can find for less and in different ano colors. Intelli little more price and factory only came in black. Both are solid and great upgrade to any mag.

ok , besides dbl trigger ,whats the difference between them and stock trigger. why is it a big upgrade? I've had these mags since the early 90's and haven't done much to them but figured it was about time.

Intelliframe also came in chrome. They have more machining on them and are a bit more finished feeling than the benchmark frames. The trigger pull geometry also doesn't change with the intelli. With the benchmark the seat rod will need to be adjusted.

Tons of single frames were cut because people wanted a double trigger and only since trigger frames were around. Both the carbon and rare ano frames were cut, shame on the ano ones. Not many like the feel of the stock carbon frame, single trigger and you could not get it ano to match.

Intelliframe (at least to me) doesnt have as much side to side trigger slop.

I've never seen a Benchy with a blade trigger (which is my preference).

IMHO Intelliframe is better hands down.

Intelliframe also uses dye grips, which are very comfortable in my opinion.

They come up for sale once in a while. Luke over on AO has some nice triggers and frames in single or double trigger.

it might be the that the benchmark frame i played with was a faulty one or it can be just how i play, but i always seem to hit the safety on by accident while i play with a benchmark

intelliframe has a cleaner crisp pull; the benchmark's tend to have a bit of longer punchy/cushy pull. I personally like to single trigger benchmarks. Intelliframes prolly the best route if you want a more modern feel/pull.

Intellifeed. The benchmark safety sucks, as you pull it out, and can easily be pushed back in(turning it safe) when you don't notice it. Also, some guns and mods done to the gun will be effected by a Benchmark frame and make it not work very well.

If you can, try both if you know anyone in your area. Feel is totally personal.

Save yourself the problems, if this is a gun you're building for yourself? Then it's hands down an Intel frame. There is a reason u can pick up a Benchmark frame for $-45 and an Intel will cost you $+70.
Trigger feel is better in a double frame and I've found it to be more walkable. A lot of people cut the trigger guard on a single trigger frame and add the double trigger. Double trigger costs $11

Ummm, Benchmark made double trigger frames too

I prefer the BM because the sear/trigger geometry makes for a lighter feeling trigger pull.

Because Benchmark stopped making the frames before blade triggers became popular.

The Dye Stickies fit any proper .45 style frame including both Benchmark and Intelliframes.

Benches were the standard .45 style frame before the Intel's showed up.
