Thanks. It was made by Clearush and Rainman. All I did was add a 2nd macro on the other side of it to make it even more complicated-looking. Oh, and I made the LOUD barrel.

The gun shoots surprisingly well.

It has been said before, and the Vector DOES have a pneumatic trigger.

The TRIGGER DOES NOT DROP A SEAR. All the trigger does is actuate the 3-way valve. The hammer is tripped by a fixed sear, that is in no way connected to the trigger.

That, by definition, is a "pneumatic trigger", and there is no way around that.

Clearly this is all academic, but the Vector will always be the first example of a Pneumatic-Triggered paintball gun. I think the part that confuses people is that they took that design FARTHER by introducing a mechanical linkage that purposely fixes the dwell time to prevent shortstroking.

Thought I read a post by davidwirth that it was not a pneumatic trigger. I'm pretty sure it's possible to shortstroke a Vector, just really hard.

“But Lord,” asked Gabriel, “Is this not too generous to these Canadians?”

And God replied, “Just wait and see the neighbors I shall inflict upon them.”
