I finally took a step toward my dream of a single trigger Ego. I bought an extra trigger, hacked away with the dremel, and voila!

It clears my middle finger even with gloves on.

Next: I will have to find an extra frame and see if I can get that trigger guard down to size.

Cool idea. I always have wanted a single trigger electronic marker. I may do this in my upcoming electrospump project.

wow, that doesn't look like a hack job at all. good work. i enjoy my single finger electros quite a bit too. is simple, but not overbearing.
The ultimate truth in paintball is that the interaction between the gun and the player is far and away the largest factor in accuracy, consistency, and reliability.

Thanks, the Dremel made everything easier. It just melted the delrin away when I was cutting and made polishing a breeze.

Over the winter I will probably be trying to acquire a new frame. That's when the fun starts.

Nice mod! 

You could prolly make some money making these for different markers. A single trigger really gives it character.

I don't think etek3 grip frames will bolt up to an ego9. I could be wrong.

Its the same concept as a double trigger on a pump.


Someone just likes it a different way.

I think It looks good. Great mod and looks very clean for a homemade job. :tup:

Use a single trigger gun for a day of scenario play. Then use a double trigger gun for a day of scenario play. In my experience, the single trigger gun is easier to carry and more comfortable to use for long periods of time. I also prefer the single trigger when shooting, it feels more like a real gun and therefore is easier to aim. Also, I never fire fast enough to make use of a double trigger.

Thanks for the compliments everyone.

I did not know that Kila made that, but it's irrelevant to me since they only made it for the Ego 7 and 8 from what I can tell on their site.

do you think you could make a single trigger for a hinge frame cocker? that would be very cool to have.

1. Because it's more ergonomic.
2. With ramping, and current ROF caps, it's very easy to reach peak ROF with just one trigger.

Nice job man! Get to work on that guard!

And anyone who has had to deal with a double trigger gun in a woodsball game will know why.

He said that he bought the trigger that he cut up. He also said that he will be getting a new frame to mod, this would imply that he will have a frame/trigger for his single trigger and a frame/trigger for a double trigger.

My field IS semi only. I never use ramping. It's not hard to hit 10 bps on a single trigger.

I can only get 8bps using a single finger.

It just seems like it would be way easier to use both.

But to each his own.

I should add that I cap the gun at 10 bps and rarely ever shoot that quickly. I am too cheap to shoot that rapidly very often.
