I'm not really comfortable with the trigger pins being housed in plastic, to be honest. I've always liked how BTs have their trigger housings made of steel...at least our old BT-4 rentals had em. I've never had to replace a sear after 5+ years, and I think the tight alignment plays a huge part in that. The 98c trigger pins tend to have a bit of wiggle room.
I also wonder how those cast ASA's will hold up. The machined and anodized ASAs get stripped out and beaten up, so how will raw cast ASAs fare?
I do very much appreciate
the fact that Tippmann has finally put a c-clip on their valve. BT's been doing that for a long *** time. Selling a non user servicable valve is a ridiculous money grab, so I'm glad to see we'll be able to swap an o-ring rather than buying a $20+ valve core. Same goes for the valve screws. See ya, glad to see them gone.
