The Hair Pin Trigger Kit replaces the pins in the trigger mechanism to reduce the amount of contact there is between the sear and hammer, and reduce the amount of movement that the trigger has. Together these attributes allow for higher rates of fire and a more sensative trigger.


Replace the "Trigger Stop Pin" with either the # 0 or or # 1, and the "Bottom Sear Stop Pin" with either the # 2, # 3 or # 4 pin.  If you go too large with the "Trigger Stop Pin" the trigger will either not actuate the hammer or not rest the trigger with each shot.  If you go too large on the "Bottom Sear Stop Pin" the gun will go into out of control "full auto" mode.

Fits A5, 98, an, Mechanical, Response Trigger, Egrip, or HE Grip X7.

With so many upgrades for Tippmann markers it's important that you aren't wasting your time and are getting superior
value and performance for your hard earned money. TechT products have long been considered top shelf upgrades,
which is why this review will pinpoint the effectiveness of the Hair Pin Trigger kit and help inform you on your purchasing
decision.

What needs to be noted is the difference in performance when upgrading a mechanical trigger system compared
to an electronic trigger system.
 
Mechanical: With your mechanical Tippmann marker there will be a noticable difference in
the trigger pull and crispness compared to the stock pins. The Hairpin Kit's wider pin above the trigger return slide adjusts the trigger travel
while the pin contacting the sear adjusts trigger slop and the sensitivity of the sear on the hammer.
Although every marker has its own quirks, most mechanical tippmans will generally not use the largest of the two pins
because they are more likely to cause the "Accidental Full-Auto" effect, meaning your marker will be more comfortable
using the 1 and 2 sized pins.

Electronic: When the Hair Pin Kit is used with an electronic grip frame the results are easier to see and feel. The pins act in almost the same
way as in a mechanical marker with more marked results. The pin above the trigger return slide acts in the same way but the effect is amplified by the E-Grip's
micro switch which already gives it an incredibly short trigger pull. In the same way the effects of the pin contacting the sear are
also amplified by giving the user shorter dwell settings and longer battery life. As stated before, the bonus of adding a high quality
aftermarket trigger also gives you better results. For example, the all aluminum construction of the TechT Fang trigger has higer tolerances
and won't bend or warp slightly like the stock plastic trigger will. That added sensitivity will maximize your fingers capabilities to put
paint downrange lightning fast and consistently.

To summarize, because of the nature of how the TechT pins interact with the trigger return slide and in turn the hammer and sear,
the results of a crisp pull and quicker firing will be noticeable in a mechanical Tippmann marker. However, those and other results will be even sharper when
used in combination with an E-Grip or an aftermarket metal trigger such as the TechT Fang or other quality brands. Tuning and tinkering
will be necessary for your individual marker in order to get your desired results.



Features
  • In efforts to set this up correctly there is a certain order you must do these modifications. To REALLY fine tune the setup, it may require that you change out the pins a few times…..but with patience….you'll find the perfect set-up.
  • Remove gas and paint from your marker.
  • Remove the pins that hold the trigger frame to the marker.
  • Remove the safety so that you can pull out the trigger mechanism.
  • Pull out the trigger mechanism
  • Pull off the left hand side plate so that your trigger mechanism looks like the image above.
  • Remove your "Bottom Sear Stop Pin" and replace it with one from the kit. Now at this point you have options. You can either put the largest one in or the smallest. Its up to you. I like to start at the biggest. Most guns can handle it….but it will put more stress on your sear. Meaning…it could wear out your sear and hammer sooner …..perhaps not though.
  • Put everything back together and test fire the marker. Now I know that we only put one pin in at this point, but that's because we want to fine tune the sear and hammer contact before we start limiting the trigger movement.
  • Plug up your barrel for safety and noise reduction, air up the marker with NO PAINT, and try to fire. Keep in mind that your marker could go full auto here….so be ready to grab your cocking handle to stop the marker if that happens.
  • If you marker goes full auto, pull it back apart and use the next size down and retest. If it shoots normally, you could potentially go up a size if there is one.
  • If the marker shot fine and you are happy with your sear pin selection, now we can try to limit the trigger travel. If your trigger does not have set screws then you will probably want to replace the pin with one from this kit.
  • To do this, remove your air and paint from the barrel and marker. Pull out your trigger mechanism again. Remove the stock trigger stop pin, and replace it with the smallest pin in the kit. Again…you could start bigger than that….but I have found that the # 0 works on most all guns, and the # 1 works on some guns here. I couldn't get the # 2 to work on my markers, but yours could be different. Basically, if you replace the pin and the gun fires, you could potentially go up a size, if it won't fire….you need to go down a size here. Its really trial and error to see what works best with your marker. With all little time and patience …you'll have a sweet trigger pull.
  • If you are using a egrip, you might be able to reduce your dwell by some number. Again …trial and error here. Each gun is different. To fine tune your dwell just go out and play with your normal dwell setting. Then after each game you play with no sear release issues, lower your dwell by one adjustment. Go play another game. If you marker continued to fire normally, after the game adjust it down one more adjustment. Continue to do this until the marker has trouble shooting because the dwell is so low. If the dwell is too low the when you pull the trigger the gun will not fire. This is because the solenoid is not being activated for a long enough amount of time….so up your dwell by one or two.

Ok...kinda November 2, 2012
Reviewer: Rich from Chicago, IL United States  
It worked well when I was testing it out at my house but when I got to the field it wasn't the same for some reason. Kept going full auto so I had to put original stuff back in.  Needs lots if trial and error plus no directions   The major down side to me is that the pins seems kind of short compared to the ones in my carver  not sure if that will cause problems or not

Hard to figure out, does make a difference. June 7, 2012
Reviewer: Teej from LS, IA United States  
After trying to install this kit into my Salvo and having issues I went back to stock pins. I ended up figuring out how to use the kit and reinstalled it, right this time.
My Salvo has the e-trigger kit, and the cyclone.
So with the e-trigger I notice it does make a bit of a difference. Ive set it up so I have the size 3 pin in the trigger, making it hard as crap to pull (which is okay, considering I have a fully auto capable trigger kit anyway) I also have the largest one size 5? in the sear making it barely bight on the sear, making for a quick release once the trigger is pulled.
All in all after having some problems and figuring out what pins I should use where, it did make a notable difference and does give my trigger and marker a more custom feel. So now my marker has a trigger and sear that are exactly as resistant as I would like them to be.

need after market trigger April 7, 2009
Reviewer: Matthew Ausberger from Stewartsville, MO United States  
I couldn't notice a significant enough of a difference with this product vs. the stock pins in my e-grip. I think perhaps an aftermarket trigger like tech t's fang trigger is needed to truly appreciate this. I didn't know this so i didn't order one with it.
