Review: I didn't like the look of the upgrade at first, it comes with 5 different pin sizes and you are basically instructed that pins 0 and 1 are for the trigger and 2-4 are for the sear. Other then that you are given very little direction on where to go. Basically, you are to find a combination best suited for your marker to decrease your trigger pull and not have any resulting problems.

Strengths:
It is without a doubt that this mod definitely increased my RoF. Again, with the RS and Double Trigger, you have the perfect full auto pneumatic solution. I was easily getting 15-18 bps with these mentioned upgrades plus the cyclone feed system. If I understand this upgrade correctly, the trigger pull is not necessarily reduced, but more so the reset when you let go of the trigger is reduced. You pretty much don't have to full let the trigger go to reset it. Just thought I'd throw that out there. And again, with the Response Trigger, this is an awesome upgrade. Because the Response Trigger more or less forces the trigger back to the ready position, it now has about only 1/4 of the work to do to reset the trigger and therefore makes your RoF much higher.

Weaknesses:
The installation process was a bit of a pain. You need to mix and match pin sizes to get the perfect combination for your marker. Its all different depending on your internal upgrades. I have the Zero Kick Hammer, Double Trigger and Response Trigger to account for and I found pins 1 and 3 worked the best. These are clearly marked by how many grooves they have. I tried using 0 and 2 in my Bravo One with E-Grip and the sear wouldn't catch the hammer so it was basically full auto with no way to stop it. You really need to keep an eye on your sear when you are using this upgrade and firing a high RoF. Check it periodically for damage. So far mine is doing good but I know they can cause some havoc.
Conclusion: If you have the Response Trigger I strongly suggest looking into this mod. Otherwise you won't get much of an advantage from it. It will help you, but it works best with the RS I find.

Score: 8

I give the hair pin trigger kit an 8. It does what it says it will do, but its up to you to find out the best way for it to do that. It doesn't take a lot of testing. Really there are only 6 combinations of pins, its just a pain. Plus it has the potential to cause some damage if you are not careful.
