Review: Ordering Process:
I ordered my CP trigger directly from CP's website and it arrived in 3-4 days.
Score for shipping/delivery: 9
(Delivered w/in 2 business days would have been a 10.)

Installation Process:
I've taken my Ego apart several times and removed the stock trigger and replaced it several times as part of some end of the day cleanings. The stock trigger is a piece of cake to get in and out (relatively speaking). It just take a little maneuvering, but once you get the hang of it, it's simple (the stock trigger would get a 9 from me).

HOWEVER, since the CP trigger has a roller bearing, it can't have a set screw to hold the pin in place. Therefore, they decided to make the pin a tight fit so it doesn't slide out.

Unfortunately, the fit is SO tight it requires you to 'tap' it in with a hammer or some other object that will provide enough force. You can NOT get it in w/ out using tools (or doing what I tried). Anytime you get metal objects flying at your very expensive marker at high speeds to install a new upgrade, it's gonna make you nervous as heck. I tried tapping it in, but it was a no-go (yes, I made sure the spacers were out of the way).

What I did to get the pin in was: 1) push the pin in as far as you can by hand, 2) turn over the marker on my hard plastic table, and 3) put my weight into it so it would force the pin in. And I had to put almost all my weight into it (180 lbs).

IMO, that's way too much work. PLUS, I failed to mention that they give you spacers that are supposed to go next to the roller bearing. They're also difficult to keep right where you want them. The 5 bullet point instruction sheet they give you tells you to use grease to keep them in place during the installation. That works O.K.

I have not tried to remove the pin yet, but I've been told (on PBN by someone who said they've installed a bunch of these) to use a center punch and a hammer. Yikes! Like I said, flying metal at my gun sucks.
Score for Installation: 3

Feel & Usability:
Once you go through all those hoops to get it installed, it's got a nice feel to the trigger. You can adjust it just as much as the stock trigger and it seems just a little smoother b/c of the roller bearing. I removed the magnet screw, I don't think it needs it (for now).
Score for Feel & Usability: 9

Overall Score: 7.0
Conclusion: If you feel comfortable with the installation process I described above, give the trigger a shot. For $35 plus shipping, it's a decent upgrade. I'm sure you can sell it quick on PBN or Ebay. But if you screw up the install and scratch your gun, you'll be ticked off and curse CP and yourself for quite some time!

Looks awesome over stock
Weaknesses: Kinda hard to install...(my first time installing a trigger)
Review: Only bad thing about this trigger is that when i played with it today for the first time, the magnet return screw kept turning in by itself, so after every game i would have to screw it out or else gun wouldnt shoot, maybe i just gotta play wit it....other than that its an awesome trigger, looks great, shoots awesome...there really isnt that much of a diff between this and stock
Conclusion: Great overall product, seems to be the same as stock, but still love it!

Review: Alright well since everyone is talking about the only weakness being the installation i am going to go over that right now.

I would say it is a little bit harder to install then the stock trigger but I wouldn't say at all donít buy this trigger if you donít know how to install it.. With out looking at any kind of instructions you can pretty much put two and two together to install this trigger. Its a simple drop in place, put the spacers so thatís its nice and tight and then put the pin in, now yes the pin is tight so you cannot press it in using brute force (I got it in just simply putting a small flat screwdriver on the pin and then taping it slightly in with a hammer) I did not need to put huge amount of force on the hammer at all and I had no worries that it would damage the board or anything.

Once the installation is done, the trigger is very smooth and eazy to set your preferences to the way you like it. Itís definitely a great improvement over the stock trigger and a very worth while upgrade for your 06 ego.
Conclusion: If you thinking of buying it , do it because its a great choice for an upgrade. A+ product and the quality you expect from custom products

Review: After buying my Ego I had some extra money laying around and I hated the stock trigger, so I was like, "Im gonna buy a trigger." So I went to the store and tried a few triggers. I finaly settled on this one. It is very comfortable (to me, it may not be for you), it is also easily walkable...
Conclusion: Well, if you like this trigger and have some money, go ahead and get it...
Im gonna give it a 9 because of the pin
