I actually had an additional question just in general about replacement mechs.

If I do get this trigger, what am I going to want to replace in it? Will a simple trigger sear replacement last me a while (we're talking a couple months here), and how hard is it to do? Trigger mechs are my weak point as far as the L96 is concerned

I actually have a stock UTG MK96 trigger if you need it. Pm me and lets figure something out


How do you like your rifle so far? Looking at selling my gas rifle to get a maruzen ;) As I already have a few mods for them in the UTG.

Eh the replacement trigger was cheap ($12), I just went ahead and did it yesterday so I can have it for the weekend's game. Tell ya what, I'll let you know if something other than the trigger sear breaks on me so I can get the replacement. ;)

I'm still miffed a (now $185) part got lost in the mail, but I'm dealing. I've had this rifle for quite a while and it took a lot of adjustment but it hasn't treated me wrong the past few games I've brought it to (although those were last summer, it's been out of commission for a WHILE). I think I got my "perfect setup"...for the time being.

You won't go wrong with the Maruzen.

Yeah I hear what you are saying.

I have some plans for the G-spec as well as with the Maruzen. Not sure which one I will wanna get just yet. As I already have the MK96 shooting like a dream, not to sure I wanna guy her and switch all the parts

If you looking at replacing all the internals, you dont NEED to buy the maruzen...

I went and got the utg stock rifle for like 150 bucks and then just replaced almost every part. The only advantage to the maruzen is the metal internals but when you replace everything... no point in spending all the $ for parts youll throw away...

my utg has worked fine and i havnt even finished upgrading it yet. with a crappy hop up I was still accuratly hitting out to 225-250ft..

I could hit a torso sized target at 200ft 9/10 times and at 300ft hit a person about 1/2-3 times...

Im sure those numbers are not that impressive but considering the little cash I have put into my gun I think they are pretty good results...

Im sure you already know all this though.. Maruzen are overrated unless comparing stock to stock but it costs about double.. your choice..

hows your mk96 treatin ya? you say shoots like a dream?

You sure got a gem of a stock UTG hop up if you're hitting 9/10 at 200'.


All true. If you're going to replace EVERYTHING on the rifle the UTG is great. You can do enough work on the stock that it feels the same. The maruzen outer barrel, receiver, and bolt handle are also better quality and people usually don't bother replacing those, keep that in mind.

At this point it would have been smarter for me to get a UTG but I have the comfort of knowing that my rails are rock solid, my bolt handle won't shatter, and my stock still feels better. So I'm not complaining overly much.

G-spec is the most popular current platform for a reason

Just a status update. Got the replacement stock trigger and PDI sears and she works like a charm. Easier to fix/replace now too, and I won't lose $190 the next time USPS decides to crap out on me.

Hey sorry I didn't get back to you, there's been so much activity on the boards lately that I didn't realize you'd posted. Thanks so much for pointing that out, it saved me


I just used the L96 at a game, and I'd been doing some target shooting to get her sighted in. 500 shots fired perhaps, and still working great (in fact, I was literally the hand of god at the last game--assassination missions galore, and once I had the rifle sighted in I barely missed a shot). At least I know that those mods (which I've been doing the past few months but haven't had a chance to test without a trigger group) worked like a charm.

I'm using the UTG stock trigger and the PDI trigger sear. I got the sear off of airsoftatlanta.com, and I didn't bother to replace the first sear or the piston sear, and everything's working fine. I'll let you know if/when it breaks, but I'm very happy with this. Especially because I can actually replace parts when this breaks as opposed to the zero trigger, which gave me nothing but trouble once that small spring broke.

I ordered a backup UTG trigger as well, to replace parts other than the PDI sear when they eventually break. I never fired a single shot using the stock trigger sear so I couldn't tell you how that will work for you. In a 45 degree trigger system the trigger sear takes the most stress, though.
