So those that have tried sliders & the swing triggers. Do sliders feel a lot better? I have sliders on my snipers, but never felt a carter slider. I don't know if it's worth setting my swing frame aside for a slider.

My lower with the Skorr trigger has a crisper feel to it then my slider.

There's a small spring inserted into a cavity directly behind the trigger and it keeps the slider from moving forward/back (good), but it also doesn't provide a lot of support from keep the trigger away from a floating/loose feel (bad).

The Skorr receiver has the trigger over travel screw built into it by Earon and that helps in fine tuning the trigger from going past the break point for your hammer/bolt combo. Another feature that I like.

Plus like I stated earlier, the auto trigger function isn't the most consistant with my slider. Not sure if Earon got that ironed out on future models. Another thing is the top of my slider trigger is more prone to wearing out over time. Once it wears down too low it won't be able to trip the sear and it'll need replacing or some type of modification to increase it's height once again.

When I play with my Comp Gun I don't auto trigger, so I play with my slider lower. I just like the way it looks, which is a style issue I guess but oh well.

Shiba, it's not the old Nelson style swings that need replacing. It's those godawful DYE Frames.

What are you thoughts on the slide vs. the actual Dye single, not the 1.5 silver trigger ones? Or is that the same frame with a different trigger?

I may be bumping this thread quite a ways, but this deserves an answer...

It's not about the trigger, it's about the entire frame geometry. The frames were made to trip the 3way on a cocker, so they are built around that lever rather than what's comfortable for the human hand.

The backstrap is just flat, I found that it dug into my hand. You can't use wraparound grips because of the oversized trigger guard. I've heard some people like them, they're usually the guys who shoot with their middle finger and point with their index.

Interesting. What about the Pre-Dye swing triggers? Are those comfortable?
