Period of
Product Use:
6 months
More than 5 years
Products Used:
Stock Ego trigger - not a bad trigger by any means
STAR trigger - I prefer the STAR design over the stock trigger, and the STAR is certainly an excellent trigger. But of the three I personally prefer the FBM.
Marker Setup: Planet Eclipse '05 EGO, dust black
FBM wave roller trigger
Reloader B, Hybrid shell
Crossfire 45/45K
Strengths: Easier to eliminate bounce
Trigger pull can be made fairly light without feeling "sluggish"
Weaknesses: Tang required modification to work
Bearing design is more difficult to install and remove
Review: Overall I am very happy with the FBM wave trigger. However I had serious problems with my Ego not picking up trigger pulls consistently when I installed the FBM unit. This was due to the trigger tang not being thick enough. I applied a small piece of electrical tape to the outside of the tang, and everything has worked fine since. My other gripe is with the bearing models. Instead of the trigger sliding over the pin and being held in place by a grub screw, the trigger is held in place by the tight fit of the bearing over the trigger. It requires quite a bit of effort to install and remove the trigger pin. However I don't believe this is a problem with the non-roller models.

I find that with the ligher delrin design I have a greater range of adjustment I can use and still easily keep bounce in check. And while I personally prefer a wave type design, I realize thats more of a personal preference, and will vary from person to person.
Conclusion: Although this trigger was not an out-of-the-box performer, I am very pleased with its performance now that the above obstacles have been overcome.
