View Full Version : My opinion on the Electra 05
02-25-2006, 06:57 PM
I personally think the electra is an Amazing GUN!!!!! But it is pretty much pointless with the rocking trigger being illegal in tourneys. There is no use for it except for recreational use. And also if u do take off one screw from one contact point you cant walk the trigger and most likely cant go over 15 bps (stock). And that is why i am thinking about selling it!:( :(

If they did deam it legal then why do people say that they bring it to a tourney and arent allowed to play with it? <theredbaron> I really need to know if it is leghal or not because i thinking of getting a new frame for my electra 05

... well most people don't like rocking triggers in the first place ... Go to your local field and see if it is legal ... if it's not then just go for the switching ... different fields do have different rules you know
this is something that i would like to get a solid answer for. does any any one know an nppl offical or something that can get us a straight answer??

they only say that because most of them dont have the gun and have a worse gun. or just dont like it cause it "owns all their high end guns" hahah jk.
i brought it to my field, hogans alley and they let me use it. you just have to show them that the red tourney switch is out, then theres 1 contact point in the center. this doesnt alow u toi be a cheater and roll your fringers so it goes faster. KEEP THE ELECTRAAA

its tourney legal at almost all places exept for nxl and psp. who is gunna gon there anyways? nppl accualy took time out to try and learn about the contact points. understand what i said above, that is the truth about the rocking.

yes there are 2 contact points, but rule is must be semi-auto (which means one shot per one trigger pull)
the electra when in tourney lock under semi-auto (after u take out the red jumper) is one shot per pull, you can only pull one at a time because of the pivot point in the middle of the trigger so its legal.

Ok, for the last time. The ONLY way you can tell if it's legal is to check your tournament's rules. If it's not in there, call them and ask. It's either going to be legal or not.
I know at some of the local tourneys I played they were legal, but in others it wasn't. In the forums of the Midwest Players Series (in Kansas), they were saying a few guns were pulled for having a rocking trigger.
So again, it's up to the individual tournament. Be safe. Check it out first!
