Early guns were all gun-like. Both mechanical and early electros (angels) were single finger.

Double finger caught on with the mechanicals. Driven to find faster firing rates.

Rinse and repeat for electros a short while later.... A workaround for tournament rules against full auto.

I prefer a single finger trigger because that is what I am used to with the military. I have a double finger trigger on a couple of my 98's but I still treat them like a single finger. One 98 has a response trigger and the two finger helps me find the sweet spot. The other one I might put a single finger on it if I can get or make a metal one. I only have one electro and that was because I got a goo d deal on it. I might use it more if I could put a single trigger on it. Now I want to look at it the whole frame and maybe machine a single trigger frame and trigger if I have time in one of my classes.

Funny, I've got someone riding my jock on another forum regarding double-finger triggers and "paintball history".

It's kind of hard to nail down some of the dates, but if the Shocker was the first electro in '96... I can find evidence of people putting double triggers on guns as far back as '93.

Had to go back to the newsgroups to find it.

(There's a post by a player who said he had his done 2 years -- prior to '95.)

(And it looks like the Shocker had the 2 finger trigger already.)

I actually bought a double (swing) trigger for my 'Cocker back in the day when the fad hit... got rid of it after a month or two to go back to the single trigger.

No sir. Not for me.

They are not that hard to fabricate though.

Most of my guns are single trigger I find it more comfy. The one double trigger I own is my imp and I shoot it as if it were single as with a stock trigger its unwalkable anyways

I did both. The Ripper is the only reason I finally let the Tribal go.

I love my DAM's single trigger, given the weight you're carrying as opposed to a lightweight electro like my Alien ND or digital camo Quest it def helps out. The ergonomics are very well thought out. You can switch to FS frnds without removing your left hand or moving much at all... it's def come in handy :-D *plonk

As for mechs, I could go either way. For me it's all about the gun and how it holds. Cockers... single sliders for sure. It's all about that amazing sense of rhythm they give you. Mags & RT's... RTPros I like 2x bc they're light but classics I run the CF frame and those sweet right handed wood grips. Find my YouTube vid 15bps with a single trigger and a 12v Revvy (best I remember goldwave wise).

Single framed electronic markers are great fun. They really let you aim and also I feel you can run fast and shoot meaningful shots, just not a full on stream... I have a single Excalibur and Angel. Both are greaat fun. I never ramp but I do single shoot my Alien a bunch. The cut in the body fits my index perfectly.
