Review: Okay, so i was at my local shop and a dude left his Xonix'd Cocker to get fixed. I asked if i could mess around with it, and being friends with the store owner, of course, i got to mess around with it. (gotta love those privlages) So, first thing I noticed aobut this thing is the frame itself is beastly huge but its trigger gaurd/trigger leaves no room for my fingers. The seccond thing i noticed is how much lighter the trigger pull is on this thing is than the e1 or e2's. I was able to pinch off really nice streams of paint varying from about 13-16 bps, but the small trigger gaurd made me slip up and i would have to start over again.
Conclusion: This is a very nice trigger frame. I don't know why System X made it have a huge grip but a tiny trigger frame though. Its a great upgrade, but only worth it if you have huge hands and tiny little fingers.

The E1 and E2 are normally set at the factory with a fairly long pull, and the magnet adjustment screw set close to the magnet. These two together give a "snappy feel to the trigger as you describe. The trigger is set up like this to help avoid trigger bounce. However, with a short trigger pull, and the magnet adjustment backed out, you can make them have as soft a trigger as you want. There is absolutely no reason why either of the E-Blade frames could be set up to match the Xonic.

No problem, I just mentioned this so that people who may be looking to purchase an electronic frame for the Autococker, and using these reviews for research, would not get the impression that there were somethings the Xonic could do that the E1 and E2 couldn't.

As for comparing stock triggers, as this was a used frame, rather than a new one straight out of the box, it is entirely possible (and highly likely) that the owner had already adjusted the Xonic's trigger pull to give it a softer pull! Just about everyone experiments with the trigger adjustments to try and increase their rate of fire, so I would be surprised of his trigger was set exactly the same as when he bought it.
