RTR Slide trigger kit for the Phantom/Duckslide

Well I was fortunate enough to have been on the short list for Rodney's most wonderful creation for those of us that love the feel of a slide trigger. I love my 1911 style .45's so for me there is nothing like a smooth sliding trigger on a pistol.
Well to start with here is my before picture of my Duckslide:

I received in the mail today a nice white box with FIRST CLASS stamped on it and a return address of "Remember the Ronin". Once I opened it I found a dust black annoed, super smooth slide trigger kit. So I quickly pulled out my Black Duckslide and stripped the trigger frame off of the marker and took off the CCM 86* frame. After reinstalling the 86* frame on the new assembly, which went right on no problems at all, I had this:

A closer look at the trigger itself:

As you can see the Rodney actually made the trigger have a small section that actually takes a delrin insert to trip the sear on the hammer. That is nice as that makes it replaceable fairly easily, since it may need to be trimmed (see later in the review)
A close up of the trigger in the frame but not in the rail yet:

And here we have the completely assembled marker before test firing could commence:

Popped in a 12gram and went into the garage with some paint to give her a run through. Well I fired off the first couple shots of just air to check and make sure that everything was okay before loading up paint. First shot goes ok but every shot afterwards is a slamfire. It seemed as though pumping marker and pulling the slide all the way forward at the last 1/2" or so was causing the marker to fire. So my next thing to do was to take apart the trigger assembly and see what could I do to adjust the way the sear was being tripped.

Well Rodney hit the nail on the head. I just screwed in the front travel screw all the way on the trigger and it fixed the problem with the slamfire. But now being the "I can't leave well enough alone" type person that I am I am no longer happy with the amount of rearward travel there is in the trigger after it trips the sear. So how do I fix that one? So down to the local ACE I go since they are my great resource for screws, bolts, nuts, and any other item for tinkering. At first I think that I am out of luck as the screw that is in the front of the trigger is very small, a 4-40 or 4-48, but as I continued to look I did find the correct screw that I was looking for to replace the nice one that Rodney had put in there. What I was looking to do was screw it in all the way which would then extend into the area where the rod compresses into for the rear travel of the trigger. A few adjustments of the screw later and I am an EXTREMELY happy man This is something that I have done on my own and I am sure that Rodney will be happy to comment about if he is okay with this being done to limit the travel of the trigger.
I can only say that if Rodney puts as much into the entire Gargoyle as he does into this trigger kit then the Gargoyle is the best buy on the market today for cost to quality ratio. Rodney also stayed in constant contact with me about when the product was becoming available and let me know when he boxed it up to ship it and also the day it went out. He was like a proud father sending his son off to school

To conclude this review:
Slide trigger kit
Went on extremely easy, great adjustments, fit and finish is exceptional. Trigger is smooth and breaks like glass.
Buying from and dealing with Remember the Ronin/Rodney
Would not hesistate to deal with Rodney on any of his products as he is very helpful and responds to emails in a timely manner.

Comparison of the look of the two different triggers.................

Trigger

Yep, turn that front screw in a few turns and your all set. I leave them out a bit so you can adjust it just right for your particular marker and your desired feel. Looks very nice.

Thanks for the review Cleric. Nice job.
A bit more detail on removing extra travel would be much appreciated, as I see no way to adjust this. Not to say that it's a problem for me... I notice maybe a max 1/8" amount of travel, and to me I couldn't ask for better than that. I actually like how how that extra amount of travel complies with my twitchy trigger finger. It takes the urge to fire before I can successfully plot my next shot, rather then a premature ejaculation. Hate when that happens. Even at my age lol.

Now, I see you opted to stick with the 86* CCM frame. I love those frames... But people with larger hands should not hesitate to order the RTR Gargoyle frame.
It offers ample room for even the gargantuan of hands.

As for my opinion of of this RTR trigger assembly... If you 's would lend me your thumbs, I'll throw them up too

THE-SHOOTIST Anyone chubbin' like me for this?
mailmanmike Since Monday! That's more than 4 hours though, so according to those cialis ads I should see my doctor.
tlane77 I think for a non-chemical chubby it's 6 hours before its time to see a doctor. So you should be good for another couple hours.
splattttttt I wasn't goin to google "chubbin" because I assumed it had to do with fat. The lard type, not the fun stuff. But what ever feelings Jeff's experiencing, then they must be of the fun like stuff...
