So after doing some research I have found that the mini stock trigger is no ideal for walking. My field allows psp on all but one of their fields (they have 13) but I would just rather get better at semi.

It seems the problem with the mini's stock trigger is it's point of pivot, which is located almost directly up from the trigger itself. What I am looking for is a trigger that offsets that so the pivot point is behind it. Can anyone recommend a good replacement with this in mind, that is, if its possible to get one for this gun.

Honestly?

I've found that paintball triggers and walking them is very very similar to learning to play guitar (another of my hobbies). The better you are with working with crap, the better you are going to be at walking something much nicer. I've held and played with both a mini and an axe - and both triggers, while not ideal, are walkable.

I sat back and started learning to walk on the stock Impulse trigger years ago. It took me a bit to mass the funds to purchase that "required" blade trigger that I never got set up just right - but in learning to walk two triggers that I couldn't make work for me - I'm having no issues ...even with the crappy stock trigger on a PRR - or even the plastic curved pile of blah on a Azodin Blitz.

Unless you're looking at keeping the gun long term - leave it as stock as you can. When you go to re-sell the marker - you aren't likely to be compensated for the trigger upgrade...let alone any other replaced parts on the marker. Save the money - and roll it into your next marker, or a mask/tank/hopper upgrade.

Long term use or no, I never buy anything with the intention of selling them, you never make your money back, and I am more of a collector. Even if I upgraded to the Axe or something higher end, I would keep any an all guns I have acquired, so re-sale value doesn't matter to me.

I am sure there is something to this, its like training for a bike race on a mountain bike then using a street racer the day of the race. I understand the concept and its a great idea. However you didn't actually answer my question at all.

I don't want to use psp, that is lame, I want to use semi and just get better at it.

Still, not an answer to the question asked.

I did answer your question - just not to your satisfaction..as my answer was "don't change it" - I did offer an opinion as to what to do about your trigger. New, the marker is $300. A replacement trigger is going to cost you between $30 and $40. You're going to be investing 10-15% of the marker's list price back into a marker you will move on from rather quickly. That money is better invested in a long-term purchase...such as a 68/45...or a higher end hopper... a nicer mask...knee pads.. or a pair of paintball pants.

If you want people's opinion - specifically - on what trigger to get, and you insist on throwing money at something that isn't broken - you may be better suited asking your question on the Nation or checking what some random FanBoi says about a given product on PBreview or ansgear's site.

From my experiences here, PBF is a group of older, realistic individuals who are offering you advice from years and thousands of spent dollars experience. I gain nothing from telling you "don't do it, use it as-is and spend the money on something else...like paint". If you ask a question - expect an opinion and experience driven answer - but don't expect it to be the answer you're looking for. There aren't as many members here as there used to be - and being snippy and suggesting that 2 regular contributors haven't answered your question is going to catch about as many future replies as vinegar will catch flies.

Matrix and trbo did answer my question, and thanks guys. Your answer is twice as "snippy" as mine was. give opinions all you want, I will take all of them into consideration, but if someone says blue or green, and you answer red, its an opinion, but not to the question asked. I understand the downside of upgrading my marker, but I asked a very specific question, I was looking for a very specific answer is all, but thanks for trying.

while i also will tell people every once in a while "dont spend the money" i think this is also one of the occasions where the money will be well spent like a J&J barrel on a spyder. DP-if you have never used a stock mini trigger for any length of time its hard to understand just how ALMOST good the trigger is to the point that it is really frustrating. the shape isnt bad, the pivot is in the right place but you can not adjust the strength of the return without also moving the trigger around and while it is not super sloppy it also is not as crisp as having roller bearings in there

once you are out of the entry level market you are really in paintball for the long haul so i say spend money on whatever you want.

heck i picked up my autococker at $200 and have put somewhere in the realm of $4-500 into it in parts.

DM6 i purchased at $600 and have at least another $600 in parts for it
