Review: I recieved this trigger today in the mail and immediatly thought that it was the best looking trigger for the 98 custom by a long shot. The milling on it is fantastic and blew me away. It looks better in real life than it did in any picture. Now we get to the tough part. I disassembled the marker and tried to place the trigger in but it would not fit. Oh yes, you need a metal slide a pin and the spring from your old single trigger. I had an extra one because my grandfather stepped on my old GTA double trigger and broke it in half, and since I thought it might come in handy, I kept the parts. There is no way my grandpa could break this one. It is made out of aluminum. One thing I was dissappointed to not see wass the little bulge on the top of the trigger that helps the spring stay positioned. This made it a little more difficult to position but no big deal. Some of the edges on it are pretty sharp but these are edges you won't touch when firing. So, I had to use my Dremel to widen the gap for the top of the guard to fit in the marker. I then had to shape the grip reciever so the guard would fit in. After i got this taken care of, I put the grip on and had to cut off more than I already had cut off for the GTA Double Trigger. Then I put the marker back together. I fired the marker and the trigger felt lighter than the GTA plastic trigger. The new trigger is large allowing the shooter to have a large amount of space to position their finger. The guard hits the gas line but can easily be taken care of by getting a new longer gas line or useing macroline. The guard went down so low that it felt like my middle finger and ring finger were being pulled apart. Once I get my Comp Air I am afraid I willl have to do some major milling or just have to get a new guard because there is no way the LP chamber will fit with the giant guard. The guard looks really cool though and I hate to have to lose it but I will figure something out. The trigger had a lot of slop but if you cut off the helm of a #30 drill bit it might eliminate this problem.
Conclusion: All in all the good looks and spacious design slightly outweigh the modifications needed. I would recommend it strongly over the plastic GTA Double Trigger. If you work with it you will find it to be an awesome trigger. I give it a 10+ for the extreme milling and great price. -2 for the modificatiosn needed and then +1 for the spacious design. It turns out to be a 9+. Nothing is perfect though.
