Looking for a extra-long trigger that will fit a Difalco.

Mike Swiss posted the triggers in the following link a while back, but I don't know if he still has them available.

I had one of those extended blue triggers on a Turbo.  I liked the feel, but there were two problems:  1)  the extra length of the trigger caused the trigger to torque sideways and pull the wiper off; 2) the trigger spring eventually ate through the brittle plastic.  End of story.

It's not an either or deal either.  You run 2 fingers or you change triggers because it will hit on your other finger if you put it back on the handle.

Thanks for the feedback, Chris.

 

I had reservations about this item, being 3D printed.

"I have a inquiry in with Geary Gaspord, to see if he still making them, and being 3D printed, how his has held up."

 

I'll pass on getting them for racers.
