The 11.5 FTLB Discovery Prototype performed well at The Nationals taking 2nd place in the International PCP Class by 1 point behind last years Nationals Piston Gun Champion Brad Troyer.

The Discovery also bested the scores of 33 PCP Division Shooters shooting, in most cases, much more expensive guns.

The High winds (which were blowing debree down on cars and raining walnuts on the competitors) were a real challenge at 11.5 ftlbs and the courses were extremely difficult, but it was a great and frustrating time had by all.

Many people shot our Discovery prototypes at the Nationals and loved the new prototype match trigger. And yes it is all metal before anyone asks.

Specs for the trigger unit have been sent to Crosman and they will decide how and if to use it. Entirely up to them. The Prototype triggers were designed by Hans and myself and then hand made by Hans. Production models (if they are to come to be) would have more adjustability then the original prototypes (ours are single stage but production models would be 2 stage) along with a better fit and finish. Crosman just needs to decide if they want to use it, and test that it will pass the safety requirements. Also the prototype triggers don't have a safety and production units would most likely require them. We will just have to see what Crosman decides.

Can't devulge the trigger mechanics till crosman decides how it will be used if at all.

Does it fit inside the plastic tigger housing or was this a complete new housing that you have designed and machined from metal??

A completely new trigger group machined from all metal. No Current crosman parts used in the prototype match trigger group.

accept a good design or shoot it down as too expensive. Could you also suggest they offer what they decide on much like their steel breech kits....Would be a good selling upgrade kit and would not cost them anything to bring it to market if its all production parts *_*

Here is Nick Jenkins checking out Hans's Discovery and Match Trigger. Nick liked the feel of the trigger.
