Review: I recieved my Citical trigger for my DM7 and upon it's arrival it was packaged well, and came in an extremelly timely maner (great service). I purchased this for my DM7 cause i was looking for the curve that you get with this trigger and you dont have with the stock trigger. I knew that when i purchased this, Critical decided that the trigger didn't really need a revision to fit for Dye's 07 model... and i had hoped that they we're right. I knew that another trigger manufacturer had went back to the drawing board on they're trigger for 07 due to the small tolerance changes that were made in the frame for 07.

When i installed the trigger... let me start by saying... the trigger looks AMAZING in the frame. Before making any adjustments at all... i wanted to throw my fingers around it to see how it felt. Like i had thought... it was very natural. The trigger comes with a good size magnet to install where the oringal trigger spring sits to use oposing magnet force to repel the trigger back, much like a few other gun manufacturers do in there frames. Myself, comeing from several of Eclipse guns, prefere that... so i installed it. The magnet fit well. It was snug in the spring retainer spot and there was no need to glue the magent in place (which Critical supplies with the trigger).

My next step was too adjust the trigger a bit. This is where i found my only problem with this trigger for the DM7. I particularlly... like a little longer pull than most people. I shoot a little more smooth and consistant with a longer pull... so thats what i was looking for. When i went to make the adjustments to set the trigger out a bit... i found that with the pre and post tension screw set out as far as they could go...the trigger bottomed out in the frame only letting me go back and forth so far. So at this point ... i have my pre and post screw set to the point.. where they're not touching anything... the trigger hitting the frame on the pre and post pull is what i use to stop the trigger.

Now dont get me wrong. For most people.. this pull might be more than enough... but for those looking for a bit longer pull... it may not be. I think critical should have taken a tiny bit of material out of the trigger in a couple spots to allow for the trigger to come back and foward a bit more. Not a huge revision... but a small one would be nice. I would hope that they wouldnt change the triggers shape or how it sits in the frame... just that small amount of trigger material to be removed to allow for a longer pull.

Now .. last but not least. What made this not a huge deal in the end is the ingenious idea wo use a lever system built right in to the trigger so that even though i could only go so far with my pull, i could still adjust at any point in that pull... when i wanted to activate the microswitch and fire the matrix. That had to be the best part of the trigger. You can actually go in... adjust the length that you prefer.. to whatever size, then when you're done with that... choose where you'd like the switch to activate within that pull that you've selected to be best for you.
Conclusion: All in all... the trigger is close to perfect. The fit and finish is incredible, an incredible design, and great service. My only gripe is the fit for a DM7 is not quite the same as a DM6. But thumbs up to Critical for a great product.
