Type96 - PDI V-trigger vs Zero Trigger - FIGHT-AHH!

Before I get yelled at... yes, I did search the forums and Google, so please be gentle :bow:

I know that both the V-trigger and Zero triggers are excellent investments, but my main concerns are the price and safety feature. Preferably, I'd like to spend less than $150 for a trigger, but I could go to $200 for an exceptional unit. Action Army, PDI, Laylax, it doesn't matter too much for me, as long as they'll hold up.

Safety - I know that most zero triggers do not have one. Does anyone go to any fields/events where having safeties is required? I'd hate to drop so much cash to find my rifle is illegal at whatever field I find myself at. The V-trigger looks pretty nice, with the working safety feature, but I'm not too sure on shipping from X-Fire to the US (I just see some Japanese symbols for the shipping costs on X-Fire...)

Any personal preferences/experiences/shop choices? All of the threads describing the different triggers are all several years old by now, or are focused on the VSR-10 variants. A more recent reference for the L96 users is nice to have for everyone :)

Thanks for the input guys!

Reiklu, I can only find the airsoftpro trigger bundle for the VSR-10. For L96 MB01 parts, you need to buy them all separately, and for much more than 80 euros :( I am in the market to upgrade my piston and spring guide, but I was hoping I could get a set of Ranger's once he gets everything back in order.

Hitch, thanks for the explanation! It seemed pretty odd to require form of purchase but not have me input my paypal info. I looked around for a bit on x-fire's website, but couldn't find much with the choppy English.

Netzapper, thanks for your mini-review! Personally, I don't NEED a safety, since I keep my finger off the trigger until I'm going to shoot. As long as safeties aren't required, I can live without.

I did my research on the v-trigger, and did the conversion earlier. The V-trigger was considered on-par with the laylax zero trigger from the threads I've found, but the current conversion rate puts it just above $100 usd. With such a low price point, I wasn't sure if I was going to get gouged for shipping to the states. But if shipping is under $20, I think I might've found my new trigger...

I know that shipping from across the Pacific isn't going to be instant, and since it's winter I have plenty of time to wait - all the pansies around here don't want to get cold for a game of airsoft, which gives me about 5 months worth of tinker time with my rifle. With all the new 'snipers' showing up, it's finally time that I get on top of my tech-ing game and do all the things I've always meant to do, and give them a good role model in the process >:D

airsoftmaniacman, I'm pretty down with durability. If I drop $100+ on a part, it better not break on me :/

Netzapper, L96's come stock with 90 degree pistons. Pretty nice from an upgrading standpoint. I'll definitely be checking out that hair trigger adjustment for myself... hopefully it isn't too hairy on my end. And I'll do my best to "keep my booger hook off the bang switch" XD

Plaz, great to hear! I guess there are no reasons NOT to get another $100 gun part now...

Thanks everyone!
