Etha trigger upgrade..

Anybody have the Violent Scythe trigger? searched for a thread with this in it couldnt find one. i like the stock trigger but dont have anything to compare it to. Is it worth the 37.49? hows it feel, or respond?

I have one. I bought it hoping to eliminate the side to side play of the stock trigger...

first thing your gonna notice is that the shape is more dramatic, your fingers are gonna be a little further from the inside of the frame. second... after installing mine it still had a large amount of side to side play. I was able to slightly modify the frame to properly accept the Violent bearing cap and almost eliminate all the side to side play... I would be more than happy to send you pics if needed.

the only thing that was a bit odd was how i mentioned the dramatic shape of the trigger... at first i wanted my fingers closer to the frame but I eventually got used to it.

it is worth $38 ... ? well... eventually i got a nicer feeling trigger but with some extra work. IMHO You shouldnt have to mod your frame to get the trigger to work properly but i like to tinker w stuff so it really didnt bother me. you could spend an extra few $$ and get a MRT bolt or a smaller barrel back to better match paint but its all up to you.

I bought the Violent trigger and was very under impressed. I could not believe that trigger cost that much money. The one nice thing about it was the bearings. The bearings in the Violent trigger actually work pretty well with the stock trigger. To modify my buddy's gun, we went to a local industrial hardware supplier and found the bearings that fit perfect for $5.30 each.

Got any pictures or what size you guys grabbed?

Did you just pick up 2 bearings and slide them in? no bracket over top to hold them in place?

I don't remember the size. We took the bearings out of the Violent kit with us and bought some the same size. They should be the same size as the bushings installed from the factory. We installed the bearings with the same hardware that is already in the gun.

Edit: I lied, I just talked to him. It's been a while since we did this. He said he had to make a spacer. He made it out of plastic using jewelers files and used the spacer in my gun as a template.
