Tippmann A-5, 14" LAPCO Big Shot, DOP Blade Trigger, 20 oz. Catalina CO2 tank
None for me
Ok, i just got this thing a while back and i must say i am pretty satisfied with it. I can rip using this trigger and a spring mod. With stock springs it is hard to fire fast but with my own in there, i got this thing to fly. I saw a big difference in my shot speed. I love the trigger. I froze the gun (on accident) in about 8 seconds. So, i recommend this, if you put some new springs in and this trigger, you can get it to rip pretty darn fast. Some thirteen year olds call it crap, but thats cuz their fingers arent fast/strong enough, or this gun tips them over as it is with its weight. great trigger!
If you find some extra springs and want to increase speed without the R/T or E-grip, then go with this one. It doesnt sit loose in the grip like some say (mine is in there snug) and it is confortable. I give it a nine.

blade double trigger
72 ci 3000 psi compressed air
20 inch smart parts tactical barrel
Easy to install
This is the best aftermarket trigger that I have ever used. It rips with the e grip and looks really cool. If you don't have an e grip or a responce trigger, it might become useless, but other them that, it is a great trigger. If you do have an e grip, remember to remove the metal clip thing.
GET IT! I spent about $20 on it and it is worth every penny. U won't regret it!
Not any other blade triggers, but I have used double triggers on my Orion and the Spyder Imagine.
DOP Blade Trigger
Light, I guess
Increases ROF maybe a little
Weak, plastic, flimsy
I bought my A-5 with this trigger on ebay. I dry fired a couple times and it didn't seem too bad. Then afterwards the trigger wouldn't fire every time I pulled it, so I took it apart and when I put the trigger part back into the handle and pulled the trigger, it moved up down and all around. I tried this with the stock trigger and it stayed put. I switched my primary to the stock trigger because the Blade Trigger wouldn't keep still.
Edit: I put the Blade Trigger back on my A-5 and fiddled around with it a little bit. I finally got it to work and fire every shot. If yours doesn't work, fiddle with it in the frame and maybe it'll work like mine did.
I'm going to change the rating from an 8 to a 9 because I'm glad I have it and it is much more comfortable than the stock trigger. It can still wiggle side to side while on the gun, but still fires every time.
Doesn't really increase ROF too much, but is still very comfortable. Maybe I did something to make mine not work, but I don't see what I could have done. This item isn't a necessity, but if you want to make your gun look cooler and don't have enough money for an R/T or E-grip, then knock yourself out.
Edit: I'm changing the score from a 6 to an 8 because I got it to work and its very comfortable.

Some would say that its plastic but who cares, it makes no difference.
This is a great trigger, when i got the trigger it was installed in less then 5 minutes. also, even if it is made of plastic (which is all that is really needed) it is already shaped so that i didnt need to file it like i do with most triggers.
If you have an A-5 this is the first upgrade i recomend getting, not just for looks but also for preformance.
It is an amazing trigger but is not perfect, i give it 9/10
I got the trigger hoping it would increase my rate of fire, wishful thinking. I can't afford the e-grip with the JCS trigger so I figured I would give this one a try. It installed fairly easy and it fires fine, but it still shoots the same. That's not a bad thing, it's just not any faster. I can get the same rate of fire with the stock trigger. I've never used a double trigger before so maybe part of the problem is my lack of experience with that type of tigger, but I was expecting alittle more performance from it.
* 6/10/05 time for an update. I've played with the trigger for half a dozen games now and I have to say I love it. I don't believe that I'm any faster but I love being able to use either finger or both fingers to shoot with. I wouldn't want to go without it now so I have to raise my rating. Preveiously I gave it a 6, now I'm giving it an 8. Another thing I like is that if I feel like shooting with just my index finger I can still tuck it behind the trigger gaurd. If you need an upgrade on your trigger but you don't need the blazing speed then I highly recommend the Blade Trigger.
Great product for the price, Nice fit and cool look.

This trigger is the worst trigger i have ever used.i put it in and i gassed it up.one shot and i couldnt shoot.haveplayed around with the trigger and i got another shot off.i kept doing this and i couldnt get it working right.i put the old trigger in and it worked fine.after looking at it awhile i found that the trigger was very loose.
This product is horrible dont get it.i bought a egrip and jcs trigger and they are sooo much better.
A-5 with rufus dawg wicked venturi bolt/response trigger/16 inch Smart Parts Linear Barrel/dead on paintball blade trigger
Easy to "install" and boosts speed a little.
Its kind of a fat trigger so i suggest maybe sanding it down a little.
Ok well this trigger is kinda like a cheap to go a little faster if you have a response trigger. But you should definatlely consider this with an E-grip and a rampage board then you can rip it. But this thing is still good without the e-grip i can "rock" the trigger not very fast but definately better than the single trigger it comes with and its onyl 20 bucks so its a good upgrade flawed but good

- d.o.p Drop Forward
- Phat expansion chamber w/ Macro line kit
- d.o.p Modified blade trigger
- Painted irridescent midnight black / dark blue
Some people dislike plastic saying its "flimsy" but not the case at all
This trigger goes in easily. All you have to do is remove the 2 field stipping pins.Pull grip frame away from the marker frame. Remove the saftey and pull the old trigger and housing out . Next remove the two screws on the grip and remove the bottom bolt with an allen wrench or hexbit. then pull the trigger guard out and replace it with the new one. Screw the bolt and 2 screws back in. Next move back to the old trigger housing and pull the left side off remove the single trigger from it and replace it with the blade trigger(* *e-grips** must remove the metal pin, clip and spring from the new blade trigger.) Put the blade trigger and housing back into the frame. Then put the saftey back into the trigger frame. Put the grip frame back onto the maker frame and place the 2 field stripping pins back in place.
the springs are somewhat stiff but sill not bad. i recomend finding a spring from a large mechanical pen. be careful not to use one that is too long...some testing will be required for better suiting personal prefrence.
All around this is an awsome tigger for the A5 it went in great and helped me shoot faster with less finger fatigue.

Doesn't work straight out of the box
I just got this trigger today, I installed it, but have not used it yet, so i will edit this when i do but I feel that everyone should know about my experience installing this trigger.
When I first installed this trigger, it would not work at all. I tried moving it around, but it still refused to fire the gun. After closer inspection, I discovered that because this trigger is cheaply made, the metal clip with the spring under it was tilted up slightly. This made it so so that when the gun was cocked, the other metal piece in the trigger frame that holds the bolt back would not go over the metal clip but instead just push it in, providing no way for the trigger to release the bolt.
I fixed this by simple filing down the metal clip ever so slightly so that that way, the metal piece that holds the bolt back will always go on top of the trigger.
I reassembled the gun, and now every time i cock it, the trigger will fire. I don't know how well it will work with an air tank hooked up, by I will revise this when i found out.
I have not tested it in the field, but with some very slight modifications, i believe that this trigger can be just as good as the stock trigger.
But because of the cheap manufacturing and need of some modifications to get it to work, I will give it an 8/10.
Tactical Car Stock
Installing this trigger was very annoying and took some time, but after I got it in correctly, I didn't have any problem with it. It has a very light pull, and you can feather it very fast. The only problem that I saw is that it feels very cheaply made.
I would recommend this trigger to anyone with a basic A-5.
