Best Roller Sear For Sniper?

Any body have a recommendation on a high quality roller sear for my sniper project? I know Shocktech used to be the bomb but Ive also heard good things about the Belsales one as well.

And I came across this double roller sear on Ebay:

Autococker double roller sear - FREE SHIPPING! - eBay (item 190113959218 end time Mar-11-08 14:01:49 PDT)

Never even heard of a double roller. How the hell does it catch the hammer?


Edit: Hmmm, after looking at the ST site it says "not intended for use in swing triggers." That could be a problem. Im using a DYE single trigger swing frame. I didnt realize that was a factor.

Its on a different body, just a reference pic.

Rollers are nice, but without a proper fit they might have more drag than a conventional polished plate. mostly its break in and polish on the sides. there are 2 other faces on the sear and that is where most of the friction comes from... so in short its what you THINK is best will be the best. I have a roller trigger and sear that actually feels like *** in the frame where my non roller akalmp trigger plate and sear are worn into. The akalmp set is smoother by far so I have kept that and gotten rid of the rollers.

Should I polish the contact areas before I install it?

no, but be prepared to polish specific areas if neccesary.

Roller sears in pivot trigger frames are useless the whole point of a roller sear is to roll on a trigger plate not be pivoted. Belsales and Shocktech are the only quality sears that will work in a slider frame, stay in adjustment and continue to feel the same thousands of rds later.

How come only the ST one has a bearing for the sear pin? Seems like an obvious place for one? I guess I could just shim the one I have to keep it from rubbing.

The long hinge and electros have more or less killed the good slider setups. The quality started dropping off in most hinges and seeing a market for an old peice they already had. honestly you dont need the bering. If you felt my slider setup you would be convinced you dont need rollers either...

Not true. While they do make more difference in slider frames, the contact point between a hinge and sear tip does experience some metal-on-metal sliding contact, which a roller sear does noticeably smooth out.

To answer the OP: The Belsales is generally thought of as the best. The ER one sucks and the Shocktech one I have heard can be problematic due to the dull "point".

That double roller makes me

Probably because the tip-to-trigger contact point (especially on sliders) has considerably more friction/longer travel.
