Review: I waited about a week to get this. Not too bad of a wait time. When I finally did get it, it was the 15* version which I did not ask for. I wanted the 90* version. But I really didnt want to deal with sending it back so I just decided to use it. That was what i thought would be the worst of my problems. Apparently no one told these people that when you anno things it adds a small amount of a coating to it. So when you anno threads, sometimes the screws no longer go in. Well I had this problem in a few areas. The gauge was a pain to get in because the threads on the trigger frame didnt want to accept it. Then the plug.... well that was harder to get in really. Stuck out of the frame about ___ that far because it wouldnt screw in.

I am a fairly handy person so I just shorten the screw and thats that. Now ofcourse I dont have a stock trigger, I have the cp scythe. The pin does not fit in the trigger frame without some persuation from a hammer. Once it was in somehow the threads in the pin got messed up because the screw head got broken off. I can live with that, but the trigger has so much slop because the trigger frame has much more space than the stock one. That wouldnt be so bad if I could get the trigger pin out to put some washers on it... but since I had to hammer it back in, i have to hammer it back out and i really dont want to risk scratching the frame.

Really for something that cost so much I would have expected it to be a lot less technical and work better out of the box. They should take more time to make these better and test them before sending out.
Conclusion: Get it if you like the look and want to do some work. Hopefully you like 15* asa because thats what you get no matter what you choose apparently. I would get the fbm trigger frame its cheaper and fbm makes good stuff.
5 out of 10

annodizing does not mess up threads, its only 10-20 microns thick. You probably cross threaded the threads. I have one of these and was careful when puting the gauge in, and the plug and have had no problems. also, breaking the trigger pin was youre fault and you said you didnt feel like gettign it back out again. all of your problems were user error.

Well, seeing that absolutely everyone else rated the frame 10/10. It would lead me to assume that you are at fault. Instead of smashing the trigger pin in to the point of refusal, you could've drilled it out slightly and tapped the pin in place.

It seems for every problem u had u just forced it to work...maybe u should've tapped the threads if they weren't working...not use brute force to solve your problems.
