I was just curious if anyone has any information about this option or if it is even possible. The other day this idea poped into my head. For years I have been paintballing and I have installed double triggers on all my guns. I was looking at my ar and it occured to me that if someone makes one, you could just remove the trigger guard peice ( that peice below the trigger that just appears to be pinned in) and install one.

Does anyone have any suggestions as to why this wouldn't work or why I shouldn't attemp this? It also seems to me without the trigger guard it would be easier to fire while wearing cold weather gloves on (remember Alaskan hunter here). Is this illegal in anyway or just not a smart idea? Again any feedback will be considered.

STUPID!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

the double trigger on a paintball gun is intended to allow you to fire at a faster rate to spray paint at your target. unless you're a member of al-queda the spray and pray method is stupid. You shouldn't be spraying bullets with no regards to accuracy that's just plain irresponsible. I never understood the double trigger thing myself, I could always shoot faster with one finger on the trigger anyway.

What do you mean by a double trigger? Do you mean a two-stage trigger? The only rifles that have true double triggers are double rifles like this:


Some bolt action rifles have double set triggers, but only one of the two triggers actually releases the sear. The other trigger is pulled to "set" the hair trigger, making the real trigger's pull become ounces instead of pounds:

nope he means a trigger that's long enough to pull with two fingers. It's supposed to help you fire faster

Oh my god!I wonder if they ever thought of the glove thing when they just happened to put a pin in that guard.

j/k That is what its for.

Just an idea, I am unfamiliar with "bump-firing", also correct to the link to one, It wouldn't be for any tactical purpose (except for firing while wearing thicker gloves) moreso just for fun and uniqueness. Any comprimise of structural integrety by removing the guard?

No,that is what it is for.

A longer trigger allows the index and middle finger to "flutter" to get the trigger moving twice as fast. I've heard of friends brag about their mods on their paintball guns. These guys can get some really high ROFs with double triggers. Imagine dumping a mag as fast as you can with a stock AR. Then roughly double it. It's just a really cheap way to simulate class 3 goodies.

I have never tried it myself, so take the following with a grain of salt: the AR's FCG might not be all too conducive for this sort of thing. The trigger has to reset completely to let the disconnector release the hammer to engage the trigger sear. This is something that might not happen consistently with very fast and short strokes while working an extra long trigger like paintballers do on their guns.

What's with the resurgence of the airsoft threads lately?
