I tested a few prototypes with upper adjustment screws for "Fine Tuning" with Ripper Machinist and he showed/explained to me with hard numbers how
ineffective those adjustment points truly are as all they would do is minimally alter the pitch angle and ultimately would weigh the Trigger down a touch.
Initially I designed them with
an adjustment point up top but later ditched it in favor of running a lip running forward so the Trigger doesn't slide
up into the frame, making contact with the LPR in order to designate the Home Position. Mind you, was BEFORE the GEN5 was in the works so we were
going off the MARQ6. The Front Sweeping Lip has proven to offer the perfect counter balance to the rest of the Triggers' body, resulting in an almost
100% neutral balance point which is why 98% of Markers can run Spring or Magnet Free without the consequence of mechanical bounce many simply
cannot do with other MARQ & GEN5 Triggers. As for future POWER Triggers for other Platforms (PE will be next), my styles will retain all the same
adjustment points as the factory Triggers. Magnets are the other No-No I shied away from for 2 reasons.
First, it's the added weight of the Magnets. Magnets are considerably more dense and consist of a heavier substrate and even the tiniest of Magnets
alone would've counter acted my WRC altogether and my Triggers would've suffered for the same MB as everyone else so I always suggest to anyone
asking, to try and fine tune their adjustments so they can run magnet free and usually they end up running without them.
Second, since its introduction, part of the appeal of the Intimidator was due to the phenomenal feel
of its Trigger. While they are assembled with a
rather stiff Trigger Spring, the vast majority of owners ditched the Spring altogether, opting to run right off the Microswitch altogether which offered just
the perfect amount of resistance throughout the entire Trigger Pull. With Magnets, you simply lose this altogether. However, I know many have jumped
from Markers utilizing only the Magnetic SNAP and is what feels best/more natural to them. For this reason, POWER Triggers will accept any Magnet Kits
that will fit/work with the Factory Triggers.
It wasn't until the very last minute we made a slight modification to the Triggers that made them 100% cross compatible between the MARQs & GEN5
Intimidators (Protege & Vice), but in the end, performance between the 2 platforms was identical and all in all, I've had maybe 3-4 people complain
about their Triggers with 2 of them being adjustment related where the user could not set them just right and I had them send in their Markers and
adjusted their Triggers and both were very satisfied with how I set them. The other 2 were odd issues, one being a tiny burr getting between one of the
bearings and the Trigger Post which made the Trigger Travel oddly so I swapped out his Bearings and Trigger Post and all was well. The Other Trigger was
just not right in a Protege no matter what I tried but it worked perfectly on my Vice, so I tried several others on that Protege and they all worked
perfectly. I swapped him out and he was happy as can be.
In the end, most of us (myself included) seek products with specific features, but developing products to suit everyone’s tastes is simply an impossibility
and the best we can do is to try and make something that falls right in between. Ultimately though, it's been my experience that performance of a
product should always be the #1 priority and I'm not willing compromise performance for "added features" just to sell more product. Keep in mind that
as a fellow Player (for almost 20 years now), I know where you're coming from, but my hope is that the masses keep an open mind and perhaps try a
POWER Trigger before passing judgment.
In fact, if you are weary of purchasing one because of the lack of upper fine tune adjustment points, I am open to sending you one to try out for yourself
and if in the end it’s just not your cup of tea, simply send it back (POWER will cover return shipping). If you like it (thinking optimistically, I think you will),
simply submit payment and join the minions of satisfied customers.
