It removes the slop in the trigger pull as well as actuates the gun faster.

Prepare to be surprised.

Feels like old times with these mods coming out. I purchased one, I will try it out on both my Gmek and Emek. Can't wait to see what kind of results I get with it.

Seemed like you liked the EMach Trigger for the EMEK in that video you made.

This should help shorten the pull length a little bit, but that’s probably it.

Together with an adjustable Trigger it should make for a pretty quick shooting mechanical Marker.

I’d be surprised if there was actually much difference by installing this...

If my armchair engineering has any say, the increased length would allow a shorter
space between trigger pull and spool being acted on by the trigger.

What do I know,? I only have a theoretical degree in physics.

I feel ya, but most pneumatic actuated guns are already skirting that line.
I'd say it would be a bit different if you had hammer and sear and were getting
Higher ROF to challenge electros. But if it's a pneumatic actuated system, you're already
at that line.

If youre already stepping in the pond, you may as well just jump in.

The difference looks to be about 1/8 of an inch.

Combined with an adjustable Aftermarket Trigger and you could get the pull pretty short.

Hit you guys up on FB..


The FIRST thing I said when I got my m170r is that I have to do something about this sloppy switch. This will make me very happy.

FYI for EMEK users, you will need an adjustable trigger to use the Bang switch with.

You do not. The adjustable trigger just means you can set the trigger to a point that once it fires and has moved a couple of mm past the 'bang' point, it won't need to go any further. i.e. setting the stop point.

All this part does is vent earlier in the cycle.

The BANG Switch has been incredible. It is selling much better than we expected. Order yours now or come by the Brimstone Smoke booth at the ICPL and check it out. For those of you who would like a better understanding of the BANG Switch here you go:

Simple explanation-
The BANG Switch changes the firing point on your marker, making your marker fire closer to the front of the trigger pull. This allows you to remove up to 50% of the post travel that is normally behind the firing point in your trigger pull. No adjustable trigger alone will actually shorten your trigger pull like the BANG Switch does. While you do not need an adjustable trigger for the BANG Switch to change the firing point, you may not experience the full benefits without one.

Detailed explanation-
The 3-Way spool valve works in two stages of action. As you pull your trigger back, the first stage of action shuts off air travel to the back of the bolt, preparing the bolt to cycle. As you continue pulling the trigger back, the spool enters the second stage of action. Here it releases the air holding the bolt, allowing the bolt to cycle.
There is a small amount of unneeded travel between these two stages of action that the BANG Switch eliminates. With the firing point occurring at an earlier stage in the trigger pull, there is no need for the trigger to continue past this point, so you can adjust your trigger set screw to stop your trigger from continuing to travel, hence shortening your trigger pull by up to 50%.

After an overwhelming response, we are currently sold out of the BANG Switch!

I will update this thread after the ICPL in Florida on when more will be available.

Thanks to all who ordered!

Everyone who purchased one will receive an email with tracking information tomorrow. They would've shipped today if it wasn't a holiday. Parts are shipping from Orlando, FL.

We can ship to Europe. The cost will be in the neighborhood of $30 US for shipping. That's a loose estimate. We can tell you exact amount at time of order.

But please understand we are currently sold out. I will post here when I know the timing on getting more made.

Thank you!

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
