Review: In all reality, it's a trigger.

I own three 'Cockers as of this writing and compared a stock e-Blade trigger to the Samurai. From the outside, they look EXACTLY the same except for the fact that the Samurai has a flat surface, while the stock has curves to accommodate for fingers. They also work very similarly... I don't understand how this is so immensely better over the stock.

I'm guessing it's looks and personal preference and how you use your marker, really.

I shoot with fingerless gloves. Plain, no brand, no-name fingerless gloves. Many other people love full-finger gloves. I don't like those personally BECAUSE of the problems that people apparently have with fitting their gigantic gloved fingers into the trigger guard, not to mention that it will be a sad day indeed if I drop $40 on a pair of gloves because they look cool and have DYE all over them. If you wear full-finger gloves, then apparently this trigger will help with shaving a quarter of an inch of a protrusion that the stock trigger has to better accommodate your fingers.

I also shoot slower with a Samurai than I do with the stock trigger. How? I have no idea. I'm no pro paintballer, but I can score 11 bps on a stock trigger as opposed to the 10 bps on this trigger. Does it make a difference? No. Will people fuss over that difference? Most likely.

Also, I've noticed that this trigger likes to stick when you fire the gun canted and sideways. It's like the trigger is so light that it literally doesn't come back swinging forward because of its own weight. So if you like to shoot your gun at an angle, you might want to steer clear of the hype and stick with the stock trigger, which I just tried firing sideways with no problems. =)
Conclusion: To me, it's all personal preference. But dropping money on a trigger that makes little to no performance difference on your gun makes no sense to me. It works, but not to the degree that everyone says it does. Good product, though.
