all trigger switches have those, it doesnt need to be attached to anything. when the trigger is not activated the middle post is connected with the 3rd post. but when it is activated the middle post is connected to the bottom post

so internally the middle post is connected to the upper and lower post?

If you were to attach a wire to that top post and jump it to the bottom post, you could create the Response Trigger mod (fires on pull and then again on release.) You'd have to have an on off toggle or slider switch for it, or it would be on all the time.

I've done this with the ESP frame multiple times, but I wouldn't try it with the newer boards and these guns..

when i did it with an esp frame it wasnt that reliable.

Mine worked perfectly. Maybe your connections were bad...

yeah maybe the switch was messed up cuz i had good connections, solder and stuff. or maybe it was one of the wires i used

Must have been.

Like I said, mine worked perfectly until I started tearing it off and putting it back on every other month. It was iffy at best when I finally sold the frame - but I think it could have been fixed with some work. Only thing I didn't like was that it was too easy to cap the board and I went through a LOT of paint in the old outlaw woodsball days!
