Trigger Guard Replacement of G&G Combat Machine CM16 R8L
I originally purchased a Magpul MOE (i.e. real steel use) Trigger Guard for use on the aforementioned AEG above. It was a slightly difficult install (the set pins are tight to fit, though it should be that way). However, I noticed that the MOE trigger guard had gaps on both sides that doesn't really look too good.
As soon as I received the "PTS" version of the trigger guard, I was surprised! The PTS version is actually slightly wider and longer than the MOE version. With that said, the gaps were completely eliminated from which the MOE originally had. I don't know the reason behind this, but as far as I am concerned, I thought AR-15 replicas in airsoft would have been the same in many dimension areas and tolerance issues to their real steel counterparts.
Take it from my experience. If you plan to replace your trigger guard with an enhanced look from Magpul, I would suggest getting the PTS version for your airsoft AEG. Assuming all airsoft AEG AR-15s have the same measurements, you should not have a problem. But ever wonder, why an airsoft store, such as Evike will have dedicated PTS parts from Magpul and not the MOE? Compatibility for airsoft doesn't always mean compatibility for real steel parts and vice versa.
Snugly secures on your AR-15 airsoft.
Made of the same tough reinforced polymer.
I found that the MOE version is cheaper -- however -- it will have gaps on the sides once installed.
I was hoping to receive a more presentable packaging, complete with the Magpul PTS card... All I got was a small ziploc plastic with it.
Despite the lacking packaging that shows off the Magpul PTS logo, IT WILL FUNCTION as it should. The extra packaging presentation would have been nice though...
