Review: I'll get straight to the point.

I love this trigger.

TBO has basically designed a trigger that is curved like Shocker triggers, or the CP ion trigger, but for less money and the same performance.

When I got the trigger, I was impressed with the construction. It's very well made and smooth. The curve is consistent, and the arm that reaches to the trigger switch is very sturdy-looking. The edges are bevelled so it's conducive to those who walk with their finger-tips on the edge of the trigger. The curved design provides a lever action which makes the pressure necessary to engage the switch almost the same up and down the trigger. The back adjust setscrew and stock front adjust/magnetic tension screw are all you need to get the trigger positioned perfectly for you.

The only problems I've had were that, when I recieved the trigger, the pin hole was a touch tight on my trigger pin, so it stuck a bit. I just reamed it out with the star-shaped end of the pin a bit and it glides perfectly now. I'd advise a drop of paintball oil, it works wonders on a non-roller bearing trigger. Also, this isn't much of a problem for me, but for some people it's a bit wide. It's wider than the stock trigger, just a touch thinner than the gap in the frame at the top of the trigger through which it protrudes. The only thing that bothered me is that it doesn't come with an allen key that fits the back-gauge setscrew, and the little one that comes with the stock trigger doesn't fit. If you don't have an allen key set, this can be a bit of a pain.
Conclusion: All in all this product recieves a 9/10. For $17 without a magnet and $20 with, it's one of the cheapest triggers on the market. It's well made and well designed. The only real drawback is having to search for an allen key to adjust the setscrew.

Where the hell did you find this trigger for only $20?!?! It's listed all around at $35-60, but I'd buy it in a heartbeat at $20.

I bought this trigger directly from TBO himself. I guess the price went up after he stopped making them. Mine was quite early in the run of triggers.
