These super lightweight delrin triggers simply wipe out the competition. Light enough so that no trigger spring is needed, it can pivot right off the microswitch, giving you the lightest pull possible, and still keeping nasty illegal bounce out of the gun. During testing, the rate of fire on the test guns increased 3-6 balls per second using these new triggers! Mad nasty, and inexpensive.
The Fireball Mountain FBM 05 EGO Delrin Trigger is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.
One of the first 05 style aftermarket triggers
Minor filing was required.
I have the Non-Bearing version and it was worth every penny. I had to do some minor filing when I first installed it, but it was no big deal. This is the lightest, smoothest Ego trigger I have felt yet.
I've been using this trigger for over 6 months now and it is holding up wonderfully, it's a must have trigger for any ego owner!
Basically there was no place to put the trigger pin retention screw. This means the pin would just fall out if the gun was tilted or while firing due to kick. IDK maybe I got a flawed one or something, but it sucks if your trigger falls out!!!! Im assuming I did get a dud.
Not a good product, was not machined correctly and there would be no possible way other than glue to keep this trigger from falling out. I do feel I got a goofed up one. No company could be this retarded to make a product that will completely fail 100%.
On that note I give it a 8, that is if you get one with a properly drilled and tapped hole for retention screw... But for lack of quality control I give it a 5.
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.
Easier to eliminate bounce
Trigger pull can be made fairly light without feeling "sluggish"
Tang required modification to work
Bearing design is more difficult to install and remove
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.
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.
well i didnt like the stock trigger so i decided to get a wave trigger to better cup my hands. this trigger is a verry light pull. or u can make it hard.. but u can make it soft with no bounce. i had to sand mine becuz when i tightened pin screw the trigger wouldnt move. its not as good of a trigger as i thought. Eh.... thats what you get.. in my ipinion i shot faster with the star trigger.
