All aluminum construction
Removable trigger guard
Beveled double trigger for added comfort
Adjustable trigger stop
Stainless Steel sear
No waisted trigger pull-when you start pulling the sear starts dropping!
The Shocktech Swing Frame is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used.

6mm trigger pull (Its adjustable on the newer models)
I have the newer model of the swing frame and it looks nothing like the one in the pic. The newer one looks much nicer with a larger trigger guard. This swing frame NEEDS new springs and possibly a near sear(i recommend the besales or the shocktech sears). If you want the best out of this product, then you will need these. With nothing modified, I timed myself on my watch and shot 10-12bps(not bad for a mech trigger). The trigger pull on the newer model of the swing frame is adjustable(not sure about the older models though). BUT, THE LIGHTER YOU MAKE THE TRIGGER PULL, THE HIGHER CHANCE YOU HAVE OF SHORTSTROKING. For me, I modified mine to a 2mm trigger pull with light springs. With this I can get about 13-15 bps(excellent for a mech trigger) It can pull off ropes of paint and so can you if you know how to use the swing frame(im trying to get a vid. of me using it).
This frame needs some modifications and some new parts for it to work well. Out of the box its okay but your not using its full potential. I give it an 8.5 only because their is no safety and out of the box performance could be better. It is very adjustable and very upgradable so I'll round the rating up to a nine. It is better than the wgp hinge frame.

Could be a little smoother
First off I'll say that mine is the newer style and doesn't look like the one in the picture. I like the nice trigger the best out of this product. It's easy to pull and feels right for my fingers. The frame is comfortable with a nice grip. It sure makes for an easier day of shooting. I also like the look it gives to the marker. It has nice, smooth lines and fits right in with the rest of the customizations. The trigger pull could be a little smoother; It doesn't quite have as smooth an action as I would like. No biggie though and I don't notice it much.
A very nice trigger frame. Not much to complain about.
This frame is fast, but has way too much snap. I would definately recomend a new spring inside it. The frame's snap is so fast that my 12 vt revi can't get a ball into the chamber before the bolt closes. Definately get a halo if you can't get a new spring in the trigger.
The only thing wrong with the trigger is the snap, and that can be fixed, I just wrote this to warn all of you about the problem

saftey broke first thing
really meant for one finger operation
Within a few times of playing, the saftey on this broke. I pushed in the saftey, and it went too far. It was locked in the safe position. A piece of metal inside the frame had bent back, had to have saftey removed, so now i dont have a saftey in it. I really like the feel, but I do feel that they could have put thicker metal on the inside. Also it needs a looser spring inside of it, a bit too tight. It has a great feel, just minor changes that need to be made.
This is a very nice trigger frame other than its minor flaws, try one out before buying it, and be VERY careful with the saftey.
System X Frame, doesn't really have a great feel. I feel like I'm gonna break it when I shoot it.

Feel, Speed, Trigger Design.
Smoothness, Trigger Stop
1. Feel- This gets paint out of your gun pretty fast. I stil have the Ryan Williams Complex
(basically, mechanical 'Cockers still kick serious @ss), so I'm attached to this. I can put out some mean ropes with this thing. It also has a very beefy feel to it, like you're actually holding something. I got the new one, it's alot different from the one in the picture.
2. Speed- If you got some good fingers, balls to the wall then...
3. Trigger Design- No-nonsense! Doesn't have these extraneous features that a Cocker can't live up to!
1. Smoothness- You gotta put lighter springs in this bad boy.
2. Trigger Stop- it gets really annoying when you find the stopping point, and then in mid-game, from repeated shooting, having it back out on you. Then, you start to chop. I don't even set mine anymore, my hands move fast enough to make full strokes.
This problem is very good. Has the Shocktech name! Lighter springs and if it's nessecery, a trigger job, will solve your "problems"

Many cocker trigger frames. Dye, works, eclipse, shocktech, benchmark, etc.
Very confortable to hold
Sexy (Much different looking than in picture)
Very smooth action
Really made for one finger operation in my opinion. The groove for your finger on the bottom of the hinge is where all the weight from the pull comes from. I myself fire with both fingers, so it took a little getting used to.
I think this would be a great hinge for those that are used to sliding triggers. This is a good frame. Most frames are the same, the only difference is feel. This trigger frame felt very good, but not the best i have shot in my opinion. I would give it a try though.
I would reccomend that you try a lot of frames out before you purchase one, this just may be your diamond in the rough.Good frame, not for everybody of couse.
Smooth, fast light trigger pull, Lug doesn't need alot of sear to catch well, trigger feels great. Frame feels good. One of the best feeling triggers I've ever seen.
The screws for my cradle wouldn't work, had to find some different onces, no problem though. Also when I was firing it for the first time, the trigger stop backed out and I started chopping. Adjusted it back and locked it in.
Really good frame that doesn't get alot of credit. One of the best feeling triggers I know of. It really rips. My frame doesn't look like the one above, its been redisigned sence then.
Dye double trigger hinge = Works just as well as the new Shocktech frame, just a little different feel in the trigger pull.

Has a weight reducing groove on the back that feels kinda weird (not bad, not good, just different)
Pretty easy to rip on if everything on your gun is working right, timed and all that.
Well, not a whole lot, I guess that some people might not like the groove on the back of the frame, but it's just personal preference, I guess.
I really like it over the stock slider, it's really hard to short-stroke a hinge frame anyway, but this is a very nice upgrade for your cocker (after a new barrel, of course). It gets a....

The only bad thing that I would say would be bad is that it doesn't come in more colors because I have custom milling on my gun and the colors didn't match so I just had to go with the Chrome.
The 2ND GENERATION of these hinges are huge improvements from the first ones and I love them and I am glad I chose to go with these. If you have the money go with these because they do help a lot with your ROF!!

Smart Parts gas-thru foreskin ***foregrip, Clippard ram, Shocktech Bomb 3-way, ANS Jackhammer II LP reg, ANS LP chamber, yeah I think I got all the parts right there
it's a hinge trigger and it MIGHT help you to shoot faster, and if not, get it because you like the feel rather than a sliding trigger, but if you like your sliding trigger, save your money and hire a dominatrix
it's uglier than my dung, maybe if they just fixed that vulgar-looking trigger gaurd
it works the same EXACT way as every other hinge trigger, so you are basically looking for sexiness (looks), price, and if you even really want one in the first place. Oh, and i don't like how the double trigger actually has the finger grooves in it, i like the straight one better but just remember this: IT'S ALL ABOUT PREFERENCE! EVERY HINGE TRIGGER IS EXACTLY THE SAME IN THE WAY IT WORKS! yeah just for an extra word i like the System X cause it comes with grips and a beaver tail. ask somebody at the field at the target range or whatever if you can take a few shots with their hinge trigger just to be sure you want one
