... in the opposite direction.

Usually it's actual firearms tech that gets adapted to paintball, this time, it's the other way around.



Now, how long until there's a micro-switch operated sear-tripper to go along with this?

I can't see that being very useful/comfortable on a firearm.

Oh, definitely not! I just thought it was funny as could be when I saw it.

Is the slide fire stock a junky version of the r/t trigger?

It basically allows you to "bump fire" without having to hold it low and bounce it off your belly. Same principal, but without the mechanical assist. It's all you forcing the thing forward during recoil, no siphoned gasses or whatnot.

Been looking at AK's. For the price they want for just Romanians, I might as well drop the the money on a Arsenal.

Yeah, it's been insane recently.

74's are still less expensive than AKMs, and the 5.45 is still cheaper than 7.62. I'd go Tantal or the like.

VZ58's are still decently priced and better than an AK IMHO.

Back to the original topic. 

The next upgrade they have coming out will be a response trigger to give the effect of full-automatic fire while still meeting the technical/legal definition of being a semi-auto.

The kit will come complete with asbestos shooting gloves* and an oversize trigger guard to accommodate them.



*To protect against redirected hot chamber gasses.

Played with one of those, it's more like the feel of an Automag (paintball, not firearm) trigger with the positive push-back. You can't really "bounce" it like the Tippmann R/T

Figures, I don't like the AGD (or WGP) triggers.
