Airsoft Surgeon Flat Type Steel Trigger - First Look

Postby The Reptile House on Tue Oct 16, 2012 10:42 am

I bought the Airsoft Surgeon (AS) flat trigger on a whim, thinking it couldn't possibly look as poorly finished as it does in this promotional photo:

...and indeed, it doesn't seem quite as bad...or, rather, the substantial feel goes some way in making up for the finish.

I bought the trigger from ehobby. Similar to FCC's offering, the trigger is said to reduce trigger pull distance.

It comes packaged in a sealed, ziploc bag:

The bag contains the trigger and a separate bar and spacers, to mount the trigger. A spring is not provided:

On close inspection, the trigger has visible CNC marks. It's pretty hefty and a magnet proves it's ferrous.

Compared with FCC's Midway style race trigger, the Airsoft Surgeon trigger does not appear to be as well made. FCC's design also differs, where the bar is cast at the top of the trigger. FCC's trigger also comes complete with standard and weak strength springs.

FCC left, AS right:

Despite the poor comparison to FCC's trigger, the Airsoft Surgeon trigger does provide us with a different style and the finish isn't so bad that it prevents me from using it. It has a sort of artisan, handmade quality which is quite endearing after a while :)

TBH I wasn't that impressed with FCC's trigger when I bought it at the start of 2012, but it has grown on me (and the silver version is very nice indeed).

As with all functional parts, the real test will be how it performs live ;)

I'll pick this up when it's fitted.

Nice one Rich!
I'm honking on a rock of pure airsoft. For kicks.

Sorry it's a bit of a ressurection...

Thanks for doing this, I was pondering the two triggers and now, thanks to your comparison and detailed pics, you've helped me make my mind up. The finish on the FCC is far superior...

FCC it is!

thanks Rich!

No worries dude - it's a review thread :)

Yeah - if I had to choose, I'd definitely go for FCC. In fact, I may not ever fit the AS one.

Also, having now used soft and standard springs, soft is marginally better for me. You don't get the option of soft with the AS one.
