Seeing how much interest there is for PBX trigger's?

I just purchased the PBX Excal off of Gunhero and the main reason was to acquire the PBX frame with trigger so that I can duplicate it. I'm sure as several of you know I have a few frames with no triggers. I would like to make them complete to be able to better pass them on.

All of that being said, I've already spoken with my machinist and he gave me a rough estimate of about $50 a trigger. I am only going to make the number that I need and that is it, no more.

I am of the understanding that there are several other people that have these same frames with no trigger. If you would like to possibly have one made up for your frame as well post here and PM me.

As soon as I get the marker the trigger will be off to the machinist, so hopefully it won't take long. And after I get a correct count on how many to have made, I can get back to you with a more concrete price.

Nathan

I may be interested. What would a complete frame cost? Also, I am in the market for an Excalibur board, as my Excal currently has the nelson.

Thanks

Well finally got it in hand...


Sure there's no one else that needs one? Mike, I thought I seen somewhere you have one of these frames and no trigger?

They will be going to the machinist within the next week to nail down a price on making them. The other thing that I can see will effect the price on the final trigger will be the 2 magnets it needs and 1 for the frame if you don't already have it. Going to start tracking those down now and get a price on those.

Only thing I don't like about the trigger is the slop that's in it. Looks like PBX used these tiny, tiny shims on either side to take that away. Quite frankly, I don't know how they got them all in there. I think I would have an aneurism, trying to put this back together. Actually I know I am.

Going to ask the machinist 2 things, 1.) if he can make them a little wider to do away with the shims and/or 2.) make the location of the pivot hole large enough to be drilled through to accept the same size bearings that's in all the other aftermarket triggers.

I thought I remember from my messing around with one of mine that it accepts Emag trigger magnets.

Oh and bearings would be badass especially if you could pin the trigger in place like the early DMs do. ( I have no idea if all DM triggers work in this way, only messed with DM4/DM5 triggers).

Still, sign me up for one at least.

Well if you know the size of the magnets? I've never seen what the Emag uses so I don't have a reference to go off of. I do know that I have an order to place with AGD to get the rest of the parts to complete the frames and was going to order the magnets but after getting this trigger and looking at the magnets, they look like they might be larger than the ones on AGD's site.

Course that's a stock photo and can be deceiving on the actual size of the magnets. These to me just seem like they are bigger?? Plus you need 3 for a complete trigger and frame.

Well stopped in and talked with Vince at PB today, they are not E-mag magnets. I thought they looked bigger and they are. Also wanted to drop the trigger off to start getting work on it done but my "guy" is out till Sunday.

Well found the magnets it looks like, I'll get these ordered.

Dark Side if you want a trigger are you going to need the magnets for it and the one for the frame as well? Just need to know how many to order

Well dropped off the trigger today with my middle man. It will be at the machinist on Tuesday. Outline and pockets going to be done on a laser cutter and then the rest on a mill. Hopefully back in a very short time

Machinist is 60 days out on other projects so it's going to a different machinist this week for price quote and time frame.

Cool beans

Well in talking to the first machinist it was going to cost me the same to make a run of 6 triggers or a run of 12. So I was going to go ahead and make a dozen in case there are other people that speak up later. I can only assume it will be the same with the 2nd machinist if he can do them.

Machinist got back with me today, $45 a trigger. Didn't say what the manufacture time would be. Hard as hell to get him to respond to texts.

He has a spade that I custom made for one of my previous Harley's. Gave it to him to see about getting it duplicated and produced since there is nothing else like it on the market. Needless to say he's had that for like 5 months now with no forward progress.

Just seems like it's always hard as hell to find a good machinist that isn't swamped with a backlog of 12 months of work to do.
