So I was looking into high end guns then i went out and tried out my friends sp8 which is the closest thing to a high end i had access to. I hated how the combination of no safety and a light trigger pull led me to shooting shots at unfavorable times. Then i came across a thread on hard safeties and realized that their is hope!

Now to the point of this thread. Which high end guns have hard safeties. They can be older high ends like dm3s or older angels whatever. Also any newer guns with functions similar to a hard safety (i.e. push to go from safety off to safety on.)

thanks :)

lcd trix, doesnt.
Angels dont, timmys dont,dms/pms dont,egos dont.
I dont think there is any he gun with one with in a decent amount of time. I dont see the need for one. You turn it off or you just take your finger out of the guard.

As much safety that we try to emplore into the sport i say we should put safeties into high ends. Its easy and takes seconds.

Just another safety measure that could easily be taken. Nothing fancy just a cross block on the trigger, so ultra light triggers wont be set off by the wind. ( I've seen that one happen.)

is it so hard to turn it off? if you really feel the need for more safety then you can easily hardwire a slider switch inline with the battery to quickly turn it off. but then you will have to flip that to on and then turn the marker on.

you can only hold peoples hand for so long

meaning you can only do so much to a marker to make it idiot proof. there is no safety good enough for the incompetent

Promasters have a on/off switch that is very easy to turn on.
