Review: Parted out my E99 and used the money to get an AMG (yay!). So applicable upgrades got transferred over.

The Dragon's Tail is designed well. Aluminum, lighter than the stock trigger, no side-to-side wobble, has the standard adjustments - top screw for return length & middle set screw for pull length. Also includes a magnet for that snappy return feel.

There's a small magnetic square you have to epoxy onto the inner lip where the top front of the trigger is close to. And the instructions highly recommends epoxy because it doesn't dry so fast that if you position it wrong, it won't be hard to move.

So i went out & bought some. Not hard to install, just take a pinch of epoxy (comes in 2 parts that, when combined, create the adhesive) and place it under the magnet (make sure the correct side of the magnet faces up) and press hard into that inner lip. Then let it cure (see epoxy instructions).

I asked the dude from SPPS about installing the trigger on an AMG & he said the trigger might be a little long for the trigger guard. And it is. To fix that, i had to shave a little off the bottom of the trigger. Not a major project, since i'm handy with a Dremel. The trigger also fit a little tight but all i had to do was sand off some of the anno on either side and it fits nicely now.

Another issue with the AMG's trigger frame is the inner lip the magnet goes on is a little higher than on my E99's frame. So when i pull the trigger, it actually touches the magnet. It's hardly a problem since the trigger still activates the microswitch and it actually creates very little pre-travel, kinda like the trigger's pre-travel set screw.
Conclusion: Trigger looks good, feels good and is available at a good price from a good company. S'good stuff, even though i had to do some modifications to make it fit the AMG's frame.
