Steve, where are the GTX triggers made? USA?

some posting on the fish regarding your triggers made in India or someplace.
The thinking was that made in USA was somehow better.
Interesting post by a fellow that knows how designs get stolen only to appear again.(in his line of work that is)
Hope all is well with the triggers.

Well, is South Carolina in the USA?

I think there were a few years there (like 1861 to 1865) when it wasn't.

And actually, Walter, just to improve the story, the GTX blades being sold by Skyler were made by the same SC machinest who refused to continue to make them for that scaley fellow, when the fishie guy "retired."

It seems the machinest couldn't be talked into forgetting whose name was on the original dimensioned drawings he was given to do the CNC programming from.

Short version: there really are honest men out there.

I didn't know you were selling the blades again.

I follow the forum daily too, musta missed it. even though the mods are excellent and cost as little as a buck for parts only I always liked the blade bling thing.

It was hard finding a retailer like Skyler who was willing to put up....

...with the lies and nonsense from the other side, Lon. Who needs the aggravation, when there are so many other useful accessories (like my four other trigger mod's) one can sell without having to compete with copycats?

Yup. The contact of the adjustment screw of the replacement blades...

...is located far enough from the pivot, that unlike the case with the MicroGTX insert, the infamous Quest Strut "notch" creates no issues.

So this rework of the Strut lever becomes unnecessary.

It truly amazes me how they can rewrite history over there.
That was how I remembered it as well now you mention it.
They are claiming it is 'offshore' like the first Gtx was ( I doubt that it was) but they are claiming that as why it failed.
A load for sure eh?
Good to see you got rolling with the genuine article.

"Rewrite history" is a perfect way to say it, Walter. In fact every single...

November 13 2007, 9:32 AM 

...GTX blade that was ever made, worked. There were no "failures."

There was one batch (of 200 triggers made back in 2005, long before a certain fish "retired" and then "unretired") that I rejected, sent back, and had completely remade because of cosmetic defects, but even those ugly blades worked, as I proved by giving away about a dozen (IIRC, Lon has one).

And the reason that every GTX has worked is because they've all been made to exactly the same basic design and dimensions.

The color isn't the only thing that hasn't changed since day one.

Actually, Lon, the viability of making more batches (in ANY color) is an open question.

But thanks for the suggestion.

I'd really appreciate it if anyone with software than can display exif info, would verify that the data below proves it was actually taken just last August 17th.

Well, wherever the heck they are made, all I know is they work great!

November 16 2007, 11:40 PM 

Got one in my Quest 1000 and it was like shooting a different gun afterwards. Worth every penny and a cinch to install.

Click on the "Power Stroke Pneumatics" logo at the top of the forum page.

It will take you to the site that sells them. All the info you need should be there.
