DM4 UL w/ Violent DM/UL Trauma Series Trigger

So I recently bought the above trigger for my DM4 and found that it does not fit. I installed it but it does not move either forwards or backwards. The item description at pbgear.com says it should fit so I am just wondering if there are others that have had this issue and how they fixed the issue. Any thoughts, ideas, etc...

Thanks,

This is a common issue with the aftermarket ul frame. I had the same issue with my ul'ed pm7. Most sand the top of the trigger to allow enough clearance for the trigger to move freely. What's happening is when you tighten the grip frame screws down the top of the trigger ( where the bearing is) contacts the noid. I sanded a groove into my noid so I can use any trigger with out clearance issues. However sanding on the noid is not for the faint of heart.

Specifically what part of the trigger should be shaved down in order to fit and have the room to move and operate normal?

Sorry I totally forgot. I can't get a clear pic of the trigger but if you look down on the top of the trigger you can see the bearing sticking out slightly on either side of the trigger. You can sand the trigger in this area but be cautious as the material is very thin there



I sanded the noid as seen in this pic. There's more material here and allows you to use any trigger without further sanding but again be careful cause if you go to deep you will destroy the noid

So would I be sanding the bearing on the trigger or the trigger body itself? I am slightly confused on which. Besides sanding on the solenoid.

How much additional clearance is needed with this? I feel like it might be a better idea to just shim the frame a bit. Cut a peice of thin plastic or card stock to fit between the frame and body, preferably along the entire length with cutouts for the wiring/trigger/screws. Zero risk and reversible.

The problem right now is after installing the aftermarket trigger the trigger will not move. It will not return back to the resting position. Having this is really cramping my style

Yea, if the problem is caused by the top of the trigger being pressed against the solenoid when the frame is tightened on the gun, then using some card stock or something to move the frame/trigger ~1mm away from the body/solenoid should solve the problem. Or you could grind the top surface of the trigger and solenoid, but you would have to be very careful not to go too far.
